This is my first Norr�na jacket and I am very pleased. As a taller woman (6'), this is the first jacket I have ever owned that truly fit me in the arms. As others have noted, it does run very slim, but this made it work very well when wearing packs - no bunching with or without layers underneath. It kept me dry throughout a week of (wet) camping in Alaska - and I got compliments on the jacket the entire week. My only complaint is that I had to readjust the velcro on the wrists as they didn't tend to stay especially well.
I use this jacket in torrential downpours and it keeps me dry. I use it in combo with a wool or cashmere sweater when it's especially windy and cold.
A few critiques, though - the hood fits neither under nor over a bicycle helmet very well. For someone who's slim, the sleeves are really long and clunky to adjust. I wish the inside pocket were big enough to fit a wallet or phone more comfortably.
I got the orange and I also wish it didn't stain so easily, but I got mud and grease on it from a couple of crazy rides, and it looks like those marks are here to stay.
This is shell is great! It fits true to size, the arm length runs long and the fit is flattering. I live in SE Alaska and we have been hammered with snow and rain, and this shell is a lifesaver. I wear several layers underneath and stay warm and dry. The construction of the jacket is top quality, and light. Don't know how I lived without it!!! :)
