Rugged weather protection.
With the beastily Women's Falketind Gore-Tex Jacket from Norrona in your corner, tackling the trail through a downpour, skiing in a blizzard, or setting the route while your hair gets whipped around are child's play. This is Norrona's most versatile all-season jacket. Three rugged layers of Gore-Tex make quick work of inclement weather, wrapping your core in guaranteed waterproof, guaranteed breathable protection. Moisture vapor gets whisked away before it can bead up on your skin so you rarely get that clammy, shivery feeling associated with drying sweat. The regular fit allows for layering underneath
Seams and zippers aren't security threats thanks to Gore seam tape and water-resistant zips. An adjustable storm hood and drawcord hem seal you off from nasty weather, while long underarm vents help you regulate temperature when you're hunkered down or hard at work. Hook-and-loop tabs on the asymmetrical cuffs help this weather-beating demon play nicely with your gloves and mittens. Norrona even engineered the pockets to sit above your backpack hip belt or climbing harness, keeping essentials easily within reach during your alpine endeavors.

Size-up and use for skiing
I'm normally a small, but I got this in a large and use it as my ski jackets. It's a little lighter weight than your average ski jacket, so you have to layer under it. I love it - light weight and the wrist cuffs easily fit over your gloves! Good looking coat.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: medium
I ordered this jacket for my sister. By the way the picture looks, I thought it was RED. It is definitely ORANGE. This is ok but she was looking for a red jacket. All in all she loves it. For colder days, she wears a down sweater due to it not being an insulated jacket. Great quality!!
A little smaller than expected
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium
We love the jacket, but it was a little smaller than expected. I had to return it and order a large. Regardless, it's a great looking jacket!
Norrona Falketind Gore-Tex Jacket
Will this coat work as a technical shell for winter days skiing alta and snowbird on the coldest windiest of days with good layering
I have thought about this many times and personally I'd say its a bit too short for skiing. I'd go with something that's a bit more heavy duty than this jacket too.
If you are looking for a great shell to ski in Little Cottonwood, check out the Arcteryx Alpha SV. Its what I wear touring and at the bird. Ive had it for 2 years and it still looks brand new.
