  • Removable powder skirt stops snow from flying up your back, and you can leave it behind for a bulk-free look around town
  • Fully taped seams prevent moisture from sliding in between the stitching
  • Water-resistant zippers help keep precipitation out

Thumbs UP for frigid weather wear!

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

This jacket has passed the extreme weather test in Canada. With winter temps fluctuating anywhere this season between -30 and -10 Celcius (-22 to 14 F), I am extremely satisfied with the quality - Excellent craftsmanship. I use it mainly for downhill and X-country skiing. I have been wearing two thin polyester layers under the jacket for extremely cold temps. I purchased the MEDIUM in Green-Turquoise zips. I am 5'8 at 122 lbs. It fits comfortably with plenty of room for heavier layers ( if even needed!)and no bunching under the armhole area. The length falls just below my hip bones and has interior adjustable elastic-toggles. Sleeves are plenty long for free movement. The skirting fits nice and snug once done up. If you are looking for a 'form-fitted' look, this one falls more towards the 'loose-fitted' look but does not give a bulky appearance whatsoever. It still has a nice slender cut at the waistline. The vent zippers which open at both ends under the armhole are great for those temperature swings, both outdoors and personal! Pocket sizes are generous both inside and out. It is well worth the $ for the investment in quality and durability.

Super warm and solid quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

I purchased this to replace a Mountain Hardwear ski jacket that I've had for several years. It is very warm, super high quality (I like the protected/sealed zippers) and flattering, especially from the side and back. The Magentic color is very nice - like a dark Raspberry. I am 5'4" 135 lbs and hippy - ordered a Medium. I actually think it runs a little large. I have plenty of room to layer underneath and still have it not feel tight at all anywhere. The only thing I dislike is the glove thingys in the sleeves. The sleeves are extra long so the gloves do not stay on my hands, plus the fabric is scratchy and uncomfortable. Fleece would have been much better.

Warm, windproof, waterproof jacket!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I've owned many technical ski jackets (Patagonia, Marmot, OR, Descente, etc) and the Norrona Lofoten is head and shoulders above them all. I first tested the jacket on a 2-degree F, windy day, with a windchill of -30 F. Underneath I wore a lightweight technical shirt and a cotton, nontechnical everyday turtleneck. I was warm and could NOT feel the 20 mph wind through the jacket. Fit in my normal size a little snug, especially beneath the arms and across the shoulders, so I went with an XL instead of my usual L. (I'm 5'10", 160 lbs with a slim upper body but wider shoulders from paddling and swimming). Arm length is longer than other jackets. The green color is bright and cheery, perfect for visibility when skiing, while still being stylish. Hood is the best helmet-compatible hood I've tried. Pockets, powder skirt, adjustability is second-to-none. It is WELL worth the money; a great investment in warmth and comfort and am looking forward to more skiing days in it this season!

Wonderful product

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs small

I can only write on what my wife told me about the jacket. What she did say was that it kept her warm and dry while in a some pretty nasty weather. The hood is really awesome and the adjustablitiy makes it all the more deasirable. The jacket impressed me so much that I plan on getting the same one when they become available. The jacket does fit a little on the tight side but you can make small adjustments to give yourself some room. Also expect the arm length to be a little longer than other ski jackets. Overall a wonderful product Norrona has one me over as a customer for sure and my wife.

Hey, this jacket falls right at the hip, if you scroll down to Jacqueline's review she has a picture of her wearing the jacket to give you a better idea of the fit.

the perfect coat

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I purchased the same coat in medium a few years back and wanted a second coat. The sizing of this jacket runs a little big, so I ordered this one in a small, which fits perfect. the great thing about this coat is no need for extra layers!!! regardless of the conditions, you never get cold in this jacket!!! worth every penny!!!

Worth the price

  • Gender: Female

This jacket is outstanding. It kept me warm in -17 degrees celcius. It's the warmest ski jacket I have ever owned & used. It's comfortable, it has practical zips, pockets, and the powder skirt sits nicely on my waist. The hood is out of this world. It fits perfectly around my helmet. This jacket was built for icy strong winds and yet it's not bulky because of the primaloft technology. I love it.

Thanks for the picture! Nice color!

And I happen to agree with you entirely. It is well worth the price. I own a blue from last year's collection and used it a lot and can't say enough good about the primaloft technology and the great fit of this jacket!!

I'm Blue da ba de

Great jacket, received a ton of compliments on the mountain. The color is awesome, different from any other blue. I am 5'7" and went w/ a size medium which hit my hips at a nice length and could layer.

Love the Lofoten!

I have a pair of Norrona Stranda lightly insulated pants from a couple of years ago and bought the Lofoten insulated jacket this year. I love both of them! Norrona puts out a very high quality, nicely crafted product.

I have the pants in a small and the jacket in a medium. (5'4", 130 lbs). I almost purchased the jacket in Sm, but happy that I went with Md as it's a bit of a slim fit. I think a small would have been binding under the arms. At first I thought the Md was a little binding under the arms, but after the pit zips relaxed a little bit, the slight binding feeling went away. The light insulation is quite warm, but not too bulky.

I have the blue... it's a very bright blue, pretty true to what is shown, however it has a very nice fine plaid in the color that's just a slightly darker shade of blue (don't see it unless you're up close).

Worth the price paid! Thank you for importing product from this company.
