My new go to brand

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

This is now my go to rain jacket, super lightweight and the best fit I have ever experienced. I am usually a L in the US being tall and lanky. This European sizing fit a M perfect. Awesome arm length. Also the best hood of anything I have worn. Close on the head with a tight brim and easy adjustment. I'm definitely buying more Norr�na I'm the future.

Wicked sweet and all that!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Every person needs at least 6 jackets: down parka, heavy duty ski shell, ultralight windbreaker, a nice synthetic for cool mornings and around town, a cool soft-shell just because, and a great light windproof, breathable, waterproof jacket for all-weather running and other all-weather aerobic activities.
The bitihorn Dri1 is just about the perfect lightweight all weather jacket for running. At 7.5 oz it may not be considered an "ultra-light" but it is very light, takes up little space, and gives the protection you need in a massive downpour or running all day in a snowstorm. It's great for running and the perfect shell for backpacking. It's just substantial enough to make you feel like you have something that will hold up to good use in nasty conditions. I've have experience in all conditions and this jacket gets it right! The hood tightens with an elastic drawstring from the back. I find it works best with a brimmed hat underneath. It has two massive pit zips to dump extra heat - very nice. I find this material better breathing and more water resistant than gore tex. There's no science behind that, just my gut feel after experience with both. This was the first Norrona product I ever bought, and started my love affair with this brand. 5 stars for being a waterproof, windproof, breathable jacket that rocks the trails.

Is it helmet compatible?

Doesnt look like it is. Norrona lists the hood as a "Storm Hood" but, in their mountaineering line the Trollveggen has a "Storm Hood fitted for a helmet with wired brim". https://www.norrona.com/en-GB/Products/3000-13/5610/trollveggen-gore-tex-pro-jacket-m/

Looks great on my husband.

My husband wears this during his five-day hiking trips in the Utah mountains. It is light and fits in his backpack easily.

Inquiring if this jacket has side pockets?

What looks like side pockets are actually the pit zips. They come way down the side of the jacket for extra ventilation, but no side pockets as Angus stated.

Awesome and versatile

I've used this jacket for several applications. I used it for skiing, alpine and XC in New Mexico, cycling, hiking, and as a general use rain jacket around town. It has performed beyond expectations. The Dri1 material is extremely lightweight and it seems to me like it vents moisture better than the gore-tex. It vents well and I usually pair it with the /29 warm1 fleece and a good base layer. I has kept me warm and dry every time I needed it. While the price might be steep, I've gotten every penny's worth.

Do you have any insight into sizing? Would really like this jacket, but want to know how it sizes. I know the lyngen jackets seem to run very small in the size medium...
