    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.

    GTX Pro Shell is Nuclear Bomb Proof

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

    Okay maybe it could not save me from an a-bomb, but hopefully I'll be skiing pow in it if one goes off. The jacket is sick. Zippers are all solid, pull tie at bottom keeps it tight when I don't want to use the skirt. The seams are all taped with small tape, but sealed nonetheless. The sleeves fit me well, but I could see people with large forearms having issues with how tight they are at the bottom. The wrist gaiters take a minute to get used to be keep the weather away from your hands.

    I am 6 foot, 165 lbs, and the Large fits me pretty well. It could be slightly longer, but all the other dimensions fit right.

    I give it 4 stars for a pretty small downside. The issue is the inner cell phone pocket doesn't fit my Iphone 5s with a case on it. It might be the case, but I know a 6s or 6s plus would not fit either. Maybe it has been updated since my model, but I thought that was a slight bummer.

    I'm back

      Hi, I was going to return the jacket L because I feel little baggy. Fortunately I keep it. I cannot say about durability since I used 1 day, but it feels really good! Warm enough but more important super comfortable. Really love it!

      One of the best shells.

        First I tried with M. I'm 5'9" 190lbs. Didn't fit at all. Went to. L. I have to say the fit is kind of weird. Long arms, maybe not so long, but I'm not get use to it. Normally I wear M to have trim fit or L to have some room, but this L was loose on chest and arms and snug at waist. I'm using Arcteryx Crossbow M and fits perfect. It's an old model bought in 2011, but You can under layer ok. Don't get me wrong, I could use this jacket in L, but I prefer a better fit.

        Excellent Quality

          The fabric is great, very light and kind of soft outside. Definitely a premium shell. The size was to small for me. I took M, the arms are ok but too snug at the bottom. I'm 5.9" 190lbs, so I went to a large.

          Fantastic Shell Jacket.

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

          Just received this jacket yesterday so this is just an initial review as I obviously haven't even been outside in the jacket never mind skiing in it (it's July!). But I can say my initial thoughts are this jacket is incredibly well made. Top notch feel, seams, zippers, all feels very high end. I'm just under 6'4" tall, 200lbs, 42L suit size, 35" waist, and the XL fit perfectly. Excellent length of the sleeves and below waist/butt for great snow coverage. With it being a Euro company I think the overall fit is a tad on the smaller side even though I labelled it true to size, it is, but compared to a US XL it is on the "slim" side. I was worried i'd be swimming in an XL (like I am in my current Rossignol insulated jacket) but it's not at all. I debated between a L and XL but knowing I would be layering underneath I went XL and glad I did. I also bought a fleece jacket in Large to use under this jacket, perfect fit for me. I look forward to using it this season. Lofoten Pants coming next!

          Lofoten is the new Narvik

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

          For the past 7 years I've ridden the Norrona Narvik jackets. When I was forced to replace the last one I was devastated to learn that Narvik had been changed into a baggy fit downgraded model without zipper link to Norrona pants. I'm glad I checked out the new Lofoten though. Basically they've taken the Narvik cut/fit to Lofoten, which used to be much baggier. The new Lofoten has a great fit that is not baggy yet allows excellent movement (I'm pretty slim with longish arms and size small works great). I did like the pockets/vents in the old Narvik better though. Also, the super thin hard shell takes some getting used to for someone who's been riding a softer shell. Not a complaint however, just need to reconsider the base layers.

          Awesome stuff

            I am 6'1.5" tall, 190lbs. I have a 33/34 inch waist. I originally ordered the large shell and the medium pant. I was at the absolute maximum on the pant so I returned the pants and got a large which is a perfect fit and I have room both larger and tighter if I need it. I love both the shell and pant, but unfortunately I did this today. Total bummer! I was messing around off the side of a cat track before bombing down a run and I went between two branches and I didn't see the stick poking out at shoulder height. I bashed it so hard that it ripped through the jacket for about 6 inches and gave me a pretty good puncture wound, scrape and bruise. Maybe not bomb proof, but I like it enough to order another shell. I love the way the jacket snaps into the pants and even zips together if you wanted for extra protection for deep powder days.

            Sweet Shell

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

            Beautiful fit and finish, thoughtful design features, welded seams, and comfortable wrist gaiters. I'm tall and I hate jackets that are too short in the sleeves to accommodate longer arms, and this jacket fits me perfect in a size Large. This is hands down the nicest piece of outerwear I've ever owned.

            Great Shell

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

            I've put about 10 days on this shell. Thanks to everyone for their reviews that helped in pulling the "buy it" trigger. It fits like it should. I'm 5'9" and float between 160 and 165 pounds. I have 31" waist. I also got the Lofoten pants in Medium. The shell definitely fits close to the body. However, Probably could have worn a small as the arm length is generous. But happy with medium. In cold WX I can put a down jacket under it and it's not too snug. With just a light fleece there is some extra room but not too much. I skied in it on sunny days and snowy days. It sheds water as it should. But I also liked how it seemed to allow sweat to evaporate out if it to a reasonable degree. One small issue: inside pocket needs to be bigger to hold today's stupidly large smart phones.

            The pants : I definitely could have worn a small, but was hesitant to be at the high end of the adjustable waist. On the medium, I can cinch the waist to where I need it without lots of bunching. As far as performance, they worked great with a mid weight base layer down to 15 degrees. Below that you'd need some more: another reason to have the medium for me as I ski in colder Montana mostly. They shed water and breathe as advertised. I also like the extra snap at the bottom so that I can snap them for a closer fit around ski boots.

            Can't say much on how they will last based on only using them 10 times but construction appears to be top notch.

            Final note - the light blue she'll is a great color. More than one stranger offered a compliment. I got the black pants but they are more grey than black. I like the color.

            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 uncomfortable 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.

            Norrona Lofoten Pro Shell

            • 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.

            • Size Bought: small

            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!

            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.
