    Details

    From big-mountain bombing to the backcountry.

    The Men's Lofoten Shell is Norrona's most versatile freeride jacket for powder hounds both in and out of the resort. Its Gore-Tex Pro shell provides guaranteed waterproofing that remains extremely breathable for fast-moving skiers and snowboarders. The Lofoten also features a removable powder skirt that buttons into Snap-Seal compatible pants for extra security, and X-open ventilation uses two-way zippers at each underarm to vary how much airflow you need.

    A Zip-Seal system allows you to zip the Lofoten into Zip-Seal compatible pants for complete coverage. The adjustable hood has a wired brim to stay out of eyesight, and the inner hand gaiters have thumbholes to secure the sleeves. Norrona designed the Lofoten with Y-sleeves for a full range of motions, and a drawcord at the hem and hook-and-loop cuffs ensure proper coverage. Because Backcountry.com is Norrona's exclusive retailer, you might be the only one in the backcountry and at the ski resort styling this colorful jacket.

    Great jacket, but not for me

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:True to size

    This is a very well built jacket, but I ended up returning it. I wanted a jacket for resort skiing and general around town use.

    However, the lack of pockets and the thumb loops make it, for me, hard to use in town.

    If you only use it for skiing, and specially if you wear a backpack, this would make an excellent jacket for you.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    I cannot say enough about this shell. I've had mine for three of four years now and it has been bomb proof. Granted I got the yellow so it is a bit dirty now, but still works like new. I've tested it over and over from Japan to Canada, across the US and Europe. This thing has summited Mt. Shasta in Cali, Sky Pilot and many others around Whistler, I've done extended backcountry tours in Rogers Pass and Garibaldi Park and it just doesn't fail.



    So, for features the thumb straps on the sleeves are clutch, they work great with gauntlet style gloves to keep all snow out. Powder bib + bib pants = zero snow getting where it shouldn't be. I love the full length pit zips for extra ventilation and the hood and waist bungees are great for keeping everything tight but flexible. The media pocket is great for music device and includes a hole for headphones. I also really like the arm pocket for a small tool and your RFID pass if you're skiing in bounds. Lastly this shell is great for blocking all wind, and it was waterproof for the first year or so, but as with many garments like this you will need to re-establish the waterproofing at some point with the NikWax tech wash or similar. If you don't, expect it to still work well in snow but any rain will drench it.



    As with other Norrona products I LOVE the fit. I am tall and skinny which makes it nearly impossible to find gear that fits properly. The Norwegians have my number though, and they make the sleeves long enough for me and the torso isn't ridiculously wide as most larger size jackets made by other brands are.

    Great Jacket, awkward fit

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Size Bought: Large

    I bought the green jacket with the yellow pants both in large size. It looks and feels like excellent quality work. The only thing that bothered me is the way that it fits. I am a normal built but have a little bit of a tummy, nothing crazy and you cant even see ti when i'm wearing normal clothing but this jacket is tight around the stomach and hip area. The sleeves are long and shoulder area is big as well but then it shrinks around the stomach and waist and it is really uncomfortable. I cant get an XL because I will be swimming in it. Very weird cut shape and I have to send it back even though I love the way it looks and feels. If you arent skinny, dont get this jacket. I will leave comment for pants because they too are cut really weird. Very long and baggy on the bottom and small around the bum area.

    This is hands down the best jacket I have ever owned. I have slammed into tree after tree after tree while bushwhacking errrr... backcountry skiing and do not have one rip or tear. Just last Sunday a branch caught my arm and I could have sworn it should have ripped, but no. It was fine. Not even a smudge. It's also extremely breathable and great protection from the elements.

    Awesome Jacket

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I'm 5'11" 170lbs and the M fits me perfect. Serious quality

    I returned the Jacket as I wasn't sold on the Cool Black Color. Its a lighter stone grey, not as dark as the picture makes it look.

    The Norrona Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Shell Jacket and Pants are unstoppable. Light weight, great protection, well designed, rugged. When it matters, spend the money and pick up anything Norrona Lofoten.

    Upgraded

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    This is not my first Norrona Pro Shell jacket. All the issues with my old jacket have been fixed in this new version. First off I'm 6'4" 185lbs and the large fits me pretty close to perfect. My last jacket was an XL and I am happier with fit of the L.



    - The new zipper design is far more functional and easy to use. My old zippers became useless before end of life. Better zipper pulls, my old ones came off after one week of use.

    - The hood and face mask are larger and more accomadating when you are wearing a helment and goggles. My old Jacket was an XL and I found the facemask and hood to be too tight. It was hard to zip and breathing into it would fog up your goggles or glasses when climbing/skiing.

    -I like the addition of the front vents. I'm not sure why you would be wearing this jacket if you need front pockets. For me vents are way more functional as I'm usually in extreme conditions whenever I'm wearing this shell.

    Thanks for the great review! One question, the last bit about not needed front pockets–I use them when it's really cold out and my hands are getting cold in my current jacket. Seems useful. Kind of steering me away from this one that it doesn't have them, but you mention extreme conditions and vents. I don't get it, I guess it's more about ventilation than warmth for you? Would you mind clarifying? I'm no jacket expert. Thanks!

    The perfect Apr�s-ski jacket.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    After a day of ripping down glades, defying bone breaking bumps and shredding anything a resort can throw at you, I have concluded that the Norrona Loften Pro Shell is the perfect Apr�s-ski wear. Sipping a white burgundy as the sun moves behind the mountains - I could not recommend it more.

    The perfect Apr�s-ski jacket.

    poor warranty/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

      Sorry to hear that. That was not my experience. I tore a pair of last year's lofoten pro gore tex pants November in Whistler and Backcountry replaced them with this yepars model. I had to pay the $60 dollar difference between model years, but that was it. Maybe the policy changed?

      Love my Norrona shell!

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

      Skied 5 days in Big White, BC over New Years in some days between -5C to -14C. I'm slim build 5'10" 150 lbs and the small fit me just right, even with multiple layers. Very large pit zips for super quick venting. Well made zippers (no hand warmer pockets though), and comes with a goggle wipe plus tether in chest pocket. Large hood easily fits over a helmet is great for riding on the the cold windy ski lifts. Hand gaiters a bit stiff and cuts into the hands when I put on my snug Norrona Narvik Dr1 gloves. Inside pocket not big enough to fit an iphone 6. Snaps on perfectly to the Norrona ski pants with the removable snow skirt (also option to do zipable skirt that comes with pants). Hit and tree branch (low speed) and no damage at all to the jacket. Loving the colors, didn't see a single person with same jacket all week.

      Love my Norrona shell!

      Great Jacket

      Been a long time Arcteryx user, but Norrona is my new go to for shells.

      Large jacket fits perfect. 5'11.5" and 183lbs.

      Medium pants fit good with a 34 inch waist.

      The color coordination is awesome.

      Great Jacket

      Bomb Proof

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit:True to size

      Used it all over the US in every kind of condition from putting it on to run out to the car if its drizzling, to freezing windy corniced ridge-lines, even in the Tongass rain forest AK. Never been wet. Rain/Snow might get down your neck but it is not going to come in anywhere else . Have this jacket with the bibs to complete the set. Feel kinda like a mannequin at times, color schemes are super matchy matchy but it seems like it will age well. Even got the wife a full set of jacket and bibs. We are both very happy after years of use. Saw something in another review about no pockets... yeah there are pit zips that allow you to reach in and put your hands in your inner jacket pocket. This is a durable Tech Outershell not some padded willy nilly ski jacket to put your ungloved hand in a pocket. As for the misguiding info Backcountry provides about the pockets, it is kinda lame. If you wear this when it is around/under 45 degrees I highly recommend layering either a synthetic or down puffy. If you cant wrap your head around the idea of a "shell" style jacket don't get this. Otherwise BUY BUY BUY!!!!

      Bomb Proof

      You knew I would have something to say..

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit:True to size

      So here goes again... This is my 4th or 5th year in the Lofoten jacket and bibs from Norrona. The series has really dialed in fit, design, function and quality build. The media pocket (inside breast pocket), has a small slit to accommodate headphone wiring. The pocket is small however, and will definitely not accommodate an iPhone 5 with a life proof case. I wish this pocket was built into the outside left napoleon pocket to access without having to open the whole jacket up, but maybe in the future. The other major update is the color schemes. With all of their jackets and bibs, all colors in the season are compatible with one another (the zippers accessorize with all bibs). The napoleon pockets are the same as last year and function well with a harness (for those ski mountaineers out there). The pit zips are gargantuan, allowing for awesome venting. There are no hand pockets in this jacket, so you have to use your pits zips to access other layer pockets or the napoleon pockets. The left napoleon pocket also boasts a cleaning cloth on a leash for goggles. the hand cuffs have gaiters with thumb loops that are not removable. The gaiters are a soft elastin material with a lot of flex. The wrist cuffs elongate over the hand to tuck well into a glove. For sizing, I am 5'10 165lbs and a 33 inch waist. This jacket fits me perfect in the medium. The sleeve length and the body allows for a few base layers. With several layers I still have the ability to still make dynamic movements. The interior waist has a built in powder skirt. The skirt has 4 snap buttons (2 on the front and 2 on the back), in order for the jacket to snap into the bibs in the lofoten line. The skirt also has a silicone strip that grips to the corresponding bibs. All in all this is one of the best-built jackets on the market. You will not regret your purchase.

      Some other notes I ran out of room to mention... The hood and the waist both have zip pulls to customize fit. The hood is fully helmet compatible. There is a super plush material around the top of the zipper around the neck that is comfy on the face and reduces rub. The jacket comes has YKK zippers built in the that will last for years. The waterproof seaming will break down after a couple of seasons, but remember, Norrona has a 5 year warranty. GTX pro shell is the most breathable product on the market boasting 9 billion pores per square inch. This baby is going to breath like no other. Though the material may feel lite, remember it is 3L pro shell so it is tough as nails. I ski through tight lines through the trees and had several encounters with renegade branches over the last few years and no holes. I am going to say this is one of the best systems and best manufactured products on the market, but if you have more questions please ask!

      Hi Robby,



      I have the jacket and pants as well and my powder skirt zips into the pants quite nicely. Though, it is hard to layer a warm jacket underneath when using the jacket-zipped-to-pants interface, because the jacket cannot pass the zipper of the snow skirt. I generally just wear the pants as a bib, and then layer an Arcteryx Atom over the bibs (the bib part is very formfitting, I can get a Patagonia R1 under and that is about it) and then I am ready to roll in the pow all day.

      How warm is the shell?
      What temperatures are too low to wear this shell?

      Does this jacket have hand warmer pockets?

      At 6'2, 185... any chance a medium would work for me? Looking for something fitted but long enough to snowboard with. 41" chest. I had an arcteryx theta AR and the large bulked up a ton with a pack on.

      Hey there,



      It may work for you, but it may be a bit too short depending on your torso length. What I suggest doing is purchasing a Medium and a Large so that you can compare sizes and go with the one that best fits you and return the jacket that doesn't work out.
