more sizing info

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I am 6'4" with a 46/48 chest and 37" sleeves. Bought the XXL for the sleeve length and they are actually ever so slightly long. But the velcro fixes that in a jiffy. Body length and chest work well. Note that as with many European jackets the zipper pull is on the opposite side. Function is as advertised and it packs up nice and small

Perfect summer jacket for cool climates

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I spent a week in Stockholm this June... There were some really nice days, got up into the 70s (F) a few times. Even on those days, however, there was quite a bit of wind and occasional rain. Enter this jacket- just enough to keep you comfortable, and dry in a light mist, not so much that you couldn't wear it for a whole day and night of walking around and such. Regarding the earlier comment about the hood, it is a little much- when I turned my head, the hood- well, it is a bit big, and does not turn with my head. I'd easily use this for running or biking as the weather cools off, and hope to take it on some more adventures this fall. It is light enough and packs small enough that I can count on it fitting in pretty much any packload.

For sizing, I am 5'6", 170 lbs, and wear a medium.

Wonderful except the hood

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

My beloved Arcteryx Squamish gave up the ghost recently, and I thought I'd try the Bitihorn Aero. .7oz heavier, similar pleasant fabric hand, arguably nicer colors, great adjustable velcro cuffs and hem pull. The hood, however, is GIGANTIC and lacks any brim shaping at all. If you need it to wear with a helmet, highly recommended; if not, the Squamish's hood is unbeatable.

Great fit, Does the job well.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have been primarily using this jacket for trail running, day hiking and even on the crag. Exactly what I was looking for. Super light, the fit is great, it breaths really well and blocks the wind. This jacket is perfect to wear over a shirt or a baselayer on colder days and easily packs down to a small size. I have only used it in light rain and it did the job. However, this jacket is not going to keep you dry in heavy rain. I am 5'10 160 pounds and I wear a size medium.

Great fit, Does the job well.

Love it.

Perfect layer for high speed approaches on foot or skis. I use it all year. Logo does wear off if you wash it too much so heads up. Turn it inside out before washing or drying.

Norr�na takes it back when the logo fades, they've said on their website that it was a production error and that it shouldn't happen on newer ones. Not sure if you need to contact them directly or through Backcountry.

Barry,
Thanks for your question. The Bitihorn Aero 60 jacket from Norrona will repel light rain & mist pretty well. It is more of a wind shell, opposed to a true rain jacket. I think you might be interested in something more protective to work in consistent to heavy rain. I hope this is helpful for you.

Is the fabric ripstop? I run along forests and trails with lots of thorns.

At 6.4 ounces for a hooded polyester jacket, and in the words of the description, a "paper-thin jacket," I wouldn't count on this to hold up in thorny brush.

women's version has a little pouch. not sure about men's

I know this is a really old question, but for the sake of anyone buying in the future, yes, the men's version has a pouch. I think you can also pack it into it's own chest pocket as well.

great wind shell, problems on mine

Got one of these recently while waiting for the Patagonia Houdini or Arc'teryx Squamish to come back into stock. My first bit of kit from Norrøna. Initial impressions were good- a bit heavy, but very well featured for a UL wind shell- velcro wrist closures, big hood, waist draw cord, hood adjustment, and a chest pocket.

Unlike most competing products, the fabric it's made of isn't either super shiny or noisy and stiff like fresh Tyvek. Not a huge deal, comes with the territory of low-denier fabric but I avoid it when I can.

I got it with the intent to use it for a lot of day hikes and overnight treks, using it as a replacement for a hardshell on those trips where it makes sense. Like any good wind jacket, it is a four season garment. I've done a lot of hiking in it this winter, wearing nothing bit the Aero 60 and a base layer in the temperature range of 5 F to 50 F. Breathes well, cuts down on the wind enough to make it worth having around. Certainly blows anything with a WINDSTOPPER and similar membane out of the water for any active winter pursuits.

Only disappointment was that the waist drawcord broke before I actually got a chance to use it. The stitching anchoring the shock cord to its anchor point near the zipper fell apart, leaving the shock cord detached and the waist draw cord useless.

Went back and forth on it, but ended up giving it a 4, even though the waist draw cord died on me right away. The way I figure it, defects happen- and unless this is a common defect to this design or brand, I didn't want it to spoil my rating. I'd send it in for a refund/replacement, but since I got a discontinued color on sale that BC no longer carries I'll hold on to it for the time being. If anything else goes south, I'll send it back and try the Patagonia or Arc'teryx equivalents.

super versitile piece

This thing is defenitely not only for trail running. It turns any garment you already have into a windproof one, being it a cotton hoodie, a fleece, sports underwear or just a T-shirt.

It's comfy because it's so light, soft and thin that you really don't feel it. Super breathable because it actually lets a little bit of the air thorugh and does not give you anything like the feeling of wearing a shell jacket. Packs super small and weighs nothing, so I bring it whenever there is chance of wind but still dry and warm weather.

I use it a lot for mountainbiking, and like the look and fit a lot better than many bike or running specific jackets that I don't wanna be seen doing much else than cardioworkouts in, if that...

May seem like a unnescesary product but as I said, it turns many of your other garments into all new ones when you need it, without adding almost any weight in your pack or pocket, and works in a full range of activities from way out in the backcountry when you wanna to go light and fast, to more urban environment where you wanna be comfy and casual.

Hi Torky, could somebody please tell me the measurements from armpit to armpit on size you got?
Thanks!

@Hugo I have an Aero 60 in XXL... Would you like to know the pit to pit measurement on mine, or are you looking for measurements on a specific size? I got sleeve and torso measurements as well.

My impressions on size: true to size, athletic fit. Not quite regular fit as the specs say here. Chest size for XXL is 48-52" or so and it isn't tight in the shoulders or chest like a lot of other European brands are in XXL.
