Straight from the Arctic Circle.

Brave the harshest weather winter has to offer with Norrøna's warmest jacket, the Men's Lofoten Gore-Tex PrimaLoft Jacket. is the only place in the US where you can get this Norwegian masterpiece, and after you ski in it you'll understand why the Scandinavians wanted to keep it to themselves.

The Gore-Tex fabric is guaranteed waterproof and breathable to keep you dry from the outside as well as the inside, and it's tough to withstand abuse. Originally designed by the US Army to mimic goose down, Primaloft insulation is has a high warmth-to-weight ratio to keep you warm without adding a ton of bulk. In fact, it's so light and compressible that this jacket packs into its own pocket. And unlike down, Primaloft resists moisture and still insulates when wet. A removable powder skirt keeps snow out on deep days, and you can even snap it to your Norrøna pant for added protection

An articulated fit ensures the jacket moves with you whether you're hiking up or skiing down. The helmet-compatible hood easily fits over your brain bucket, and it has a one-hand adjustment cord so you can tighten it when the storm picks up. Stretch wrist gaiters keep snow from getting up your sleeves, and a goggle wipe lets you clear your lens when it gets dirty. Multiple zippered pockets keep your essentials close at hand, and an internal pocket keeps your phone shielded from the elements.

Awesome coat

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: medium

I have used this coat for last month (avg 3 times a week) in a variety of conditions (-3 to 40 degrees) and variety of areas (resort and back country skiing) and it has been great. Fits me great, I am 5-10 @ 165 lbs have a size medium. I have room for beacon underneath and two layers when I needed it. I like it so much I am thinking of getting one for my adult kid


Great jacket, poor quality

  • Height: 6'
    Weight: 148 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

Great jacket, fits perfect, good hood, perfect pockets, nice and warm due to the primaloft.

I have this jacket for about 3 years and used it 3 or 4 weeks a year for skiing.

The outer layer, Gore Tex XCR, is not durable.

Due to friction when carrying my skis, there are a few holes and wear an tear, so soon the jacket has to be replaced, a pitty.

I hope the non- primaloft version is stronger.


Great jacket

  • Fit:Runs large
  • Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 170 lbs
    Size Purchased: Med

I wouldn't normally write a review but the others for this jacket seemed a bit harsh. Mine is in to its 4th season in the Alps so has probably done nearly 200 days on the mountain and is still water tight and has only 2 little nicks in the fabric, although its starting to look a little shabby now. I searched everywhere for something else to match it as I thought a change would be nice but nothing else compared for fit , warmth and function so I bought another one. It is only 2 layer Gore tex so you can't batter it like a 3 layer shell but that's what makes it so light and easy to wear. Best hood out there too. Guaranteed for 5 yrs in Europe but I've never tested that.



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

Nice looking coat and warm which is what I wanted. The outer membrane seems fragile and the inner more so. After less than 5 ski days, all mellow with no traumatic events, noticed small tear in the inside hood area. Not what I expected in terms of durability from what is spoked to be a premium technical ski brand. Have not been able to get anybody from Backcountry to talk to me about, so disappointing on that level as well.

Backcountry said it will take it back and exchange for a new one so I'll give it another try although my ski season is pretty much over for this year so I probably won't have an update for a while.


poor warranty/repair service in the USA

    although NORRONA manufactures outstanding gear their return/warranty program is not the best in the USA as instead of replacing defective items within the warranty period they only have a small repair/service center in the USA so if something breaks specially Gore Tex you end up having to wait months for it to be repaired which sucks as you need to buy another pair while you wait months to have the defective gear repaired
