You can't get any better than the Lofoten insulated for the price. It's got all the bells and whistles you expect from Norrona. Very warm, waterproof and has huge pit zips when you get back down to the lift. They've updated this jacket with embroidery of the Norrona logo where it used to be just a laminated logo so it's much more durable.

This is my first piece of outerwear I've bought from Norrona and I assure you it will not be my last!
This coat is perfect. They sat down and said what are the features that make a ski coat great and put every single thing in it. But nothing unnecessary or superfluous. I love ski coats and own way too many of them; of all the coats I've owned and seen this is really the cream of the crop.
From the handy goggle wipe attached in the upper chest pocket to the pass slot within the left arm pocket. Certainly keeping with the times now with the abundant use of RFID scanners at resorts. Wrist gaiters and the best storm hood. Absolutely bomber coat. I have 1 and only 1 gripe. There is not mesh over the pit zips... A debated topic, Im sure, but in my opinion it should be there. Awesome powder skirt with a great rubber lining that keeps the skirt in place. It is a removable skirt, i dont care about that but just FYI.
Its a storm day coat. The built in insulation is warm but not bulky by any means. I was impressed with its weight:warmth ratio.
The "pond" color is more teal than the blue color in the photo but I still really like it. 6'1" and I wear the large. Fits perfect.

I've found this jacket to be amazing for skiing. It is warm, light-weight, and very comfortable.
-The Gore-Tex and water repellant keep you dry in the wet conditions.
-So far, the jacket seems durable
-The insulated layer makes this jacket great for riding in the freezing cold. At -5C I don't even need a fleece. I just wear a merino wool base layer underneath and thats it. Colder than -10C I can throw on a fleece as well and I stay warm.
- I really like that the jacket is insulated but not very "puffy", bulky, or heavy, so its great for skiing.

Breathes like nobody's business. Looks fantastic. Feels great. Great quality. When hood is up you don't need neck or face warmer. Norrona puts time into designing the little things that puts their products over the top.

Just got back from 10 days in Aspen...very cold out there...this jacket kept me warm the whole time...with just two mid weight layers underneath. performed great. nice simple design. high quality. i have it in the Too Blue color...6 feet 215lbs...XL. this is a great piece.
Is the hood on this similar to the one on the Lofoten Primaloft100 Jacket (http://www.backcountry.com/norrna-lofoten-primaloft100-jacket-mens)? By that I mean is it contoured to the shape of your head and will cover your forehead as well. If not, is it more like the hood on the Narvik?

I wanted to love this jacket. I own lots of Arc'teryx gear and I quickly falling for the playfulness of the Norrona brand. That being said, this jacket has a terrible fit for anyone that's not tall AND slim. I'm 5'11", 180lbs, with an athletic build. The jacket in medium was tight underneath my armpits and bunched up at the belly (because the long length eventually catches at your butt/hips when your legs move). So then I ordered it in large, and I felt like I was swimming in it (and the arm length was about 3" too long). I personally prefer athletic, fitted jackets instead of large, loosely fitted ones, so keep that in mind. The 2L Gore-Tex didn't seem very durable, but I didn't really get a chance to test it out. Lastly, the collar seemed to get in the way quite a bit (again, because my neck isn't long enough... apparently) and I didn't quite know how to keep it zipped for the best comfort; this is a huge problem with many Norrona jackets, though - they have the tallest, most awkward-looking collars.
As for the pro's - there are tons of pockets, and the jacket has the buttons and zippers on the powderskirt that seal together with Norrona pants (awesomeness). It's obviously not a brand tons of people own, so the cool factor is pretty high. Too bad the fit was terrible. I'll go back to my Arc'teryx Stingray (with accompanying layering pieces) and use my Arc'teryx Fission SV for when it's really cold.
Some of the best colors this year in outerwear. 6'2, 210lb male. Got the XL and it fits perfectly. Got it in pond.
6'1 and 195lbs - athletic build. Looking for a loose but not too baggy fit - medium or large?
Thanks in advance!
I just received this jacket in XL. I am 6' 215 and it fit pretty well. Not too baggy and not too snug. Very nice jacket. But....the pond color is not as navy as shown online. A lot more on the teal green side.
Which of these three jackets would be the best choice for Colorado Skiiing? I don't always want to have to be layering and unlayering, so I am looking at insulated jackets.
Or the third (and most expensive) option - Norr?na Lofoten Gore-Tex Primaloft Jacket - Men's
Any feedback would be awesome
I own the Stoic bombshell coat and I love it. One major difference I think you will find between the Bombshell and the other two is that the bombshells outer material is much lighter. It is thinner and somewhat stretchy. I love it. I haven't tried the other two, but I'm sure the Bombshell will be thinner because it is not Gore-Tex while the other two are. I have owned Gore-Tex and it is a wonderful material, but it is much heavier then the stoic coat. But, on the other hand, the bombshell will be much more prone to tearing.
I feel like the Lofoten and the Powder Bowl are going to hold up longer, especially if you tend to hit trees. Another thing to consider is the thumb gaiters. If you like theses (I do) they are great. But if you don't like them (at times for me) they can be cumbersome. They are always on your hand so you are quite aware of them. The Powder bowl jacket is the only one of the three without the gaiters.
Good huntin' to ya!
6' 175 lb - Medium or Large?
I'm 6'3 and 180 and the large is fairly room for me, enough to layer underneath. I'd probably go for a medium for you. Maybe a large if you want to layer lots under it.
I notice today (27 Sep 12) all the prices on Norrona winter outerwear was jacked up by $100 bucks. I hope it's a typo...what gives? I was considering purchasing but not at the new price.
im 6'5 and 220lb.
IM assuming an XL would be best suited
I tried the jacket on in Germany. I am 6'4" and 230lbs. I wear a 46L in suits. I had on a t-shirt and cashmere sweater and XL fit comfortably. Sleeves are nice and long while body had room for a layer more but it wasn't overly roomy. If you have a bigger chest it may feel a bit cramped.
I'm looking to get this jacket w/ the Lofoten insulated pants for colder day skiing and riding (teens and below). I'm 5'7", 160 lbs, 41"/42" chest, 31"waist. I usually wear meds, but I know their sizing is different.
6'2, 180 lbs. large or XL?
Go for the Large
Large, Norrona is great for us tall thin type.
can this jacket be zipped to the womens roldal insulated pants?
Let me preface this review by saying that I am a heavy Norrona convert who moved over from Arcteryx a few years ago. That being said, I am not giving this jacket high scores. I moved from the Arcteryx Fission SV to this jacket in red. They are totally different jackets, and for my uses, I should have bought another Fission SV. Here's why: This thing is long and made to end under your ass. It is like a Theta SV shell. I know why it is long. It is for warmth on things like lifts where your butt can freeze, but for shorter people who are not wearing it skiing, it can make you look stupid (I am 5'8"). What could really fix this or at least allow flexible fitting would be an inner waist cinch which the Fission SV does have. This succeeds in reducing bulk in the belly area and keeping a snug fit. This jacket is rather loose in the body and not like the Lyngen line which is super snug in the body. Either way, a waist cinch could fix this. The other thing that sucks is the unbelievably long arms on this. In a climbing jacket, I get the need for long arms as your arms need to be able to extend fully over your head. But on this? Maybe the Norwegians are built like aliens, I don't know. This thing is super warm, I mean otherworldly warm. It really doesn't make sense in something so THIN. Primaloft must really have come a long way. I like thin. I like the warmth big time. The color I wish was more like the color on the website. It isn't. It is not vibrant. I know because I have a red Lyngen jacket and that is red and vibrant. This Lofoten red is dull and washed out. Great opportunity missed here. I like the bold color schemes Norrona uses. Know what you are getting into and if it is right fit, and you are taller, you will really like this jacket a lot.
I ordered this for my husband for Christmas and it was one of the few we tried that fit him in an XXL (he's 6'4'' and 260lbs) Sleeves were very long, body length was great and it looks sharp.
I can't comment on durability yet but I was impressed with the detailing, fabric and seaming reinforcements. Also, the hood is roomy enough to go over a helmet, which I thought was a nice touch. He's been testing out warmth walking around NYC and says it's plenty warm. But that said, he's been known to ski in just a vest + thermals over 20 degrees.
If you see a very large, beared man in a bright orange jacket at Alta, it's probably him. He said he was tired of black or grey and I made his wishes come true.
I have been skiing in the Norrona Lofoten Gore/Primaloft ski jacket for 4 seasons. This is hands down the best ski jacket I have ever owned. Two layer Gore Tex coupled with 100 grams of Primaloft Sport insulation give you a formidable line of defense against a wide variety of mountain conditions.
The Norrona fit features longer torsos and arm lengths. I am 5'10", 140 lbs and wear a medium in most everything. I have owned this jacket in both Medium and Large. The only difference in fit for me between the two sizes is the arm length of the large.
I disagree with a previous post regarding the durability of the face fabric for this jacket. I have put mine through extensive field use and have never questioned the jacket's durability.
Premium weather protection, comfort on demand with Primaloft, and signature Norrona style and detail. How can you go wrong?
Can't wait to get some backcountry use out of it. I got the Pond color and the material actually has a faint grid pattern to it (i.e., it's not actually a solid color) but it looks great and I've gotten a bunch of complements on it already. I'm 6', 180lbs and the medium fits me pretty well with room for a base layer and a light fleece if I really need it (I haven't yet though).
