BC stands by the product

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

I have reviewed this jacket before, got it a couple seasons ago. Unfortunately, the shoulder pocket delaminated this winter. BC handles all warranty issues and I quickly had a new jacket, albeit in a new color. But good experience give BC's revised return policy. Even with the delam issue, still a fan of the jacket.

Norrona is the bees knees

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

This Jacket is what your looking for if your heading into the backcountry (see what I did here?). Light weight with amazing breathablity. The zippers are a high quality zipper. This Jacket has all the bells and whistles you could want. Just a heads up, it is a European type fit so its a tight fitting but it doesn't restrict your movements.

Didn't keep it

Seems like a good jacket but sizing was small. Returned it for the Mountain Hardware jacket.

Purple put to the test...

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

After trying the Lyngen Driflex3 out and I just did not like the cut for me. The lyngen has an athletic fit and though a stretchy material, it was too tight around the chest for me. I felt it did not allow me enough room for layering, swinging axes and was not great for dynamic movement with poles on tours. After I returned that I purchased the Lofoten in deep purple.

Pros
What I like about this jacket is is it has the extra room in the chest. That is great cut for me because I like to layer up under this jacket and I can get a full fleece underneath with a base layer or two and still have room for swinging tools and or crushing tours. This jacket is not as athletic cut as many of Norrona's other jackets, but it does work well with a pack. I can also layer up over the Lofoten perfectly with my Lyngen Lightweight down 750 fill jacket. The powder skirt buttons into the Lofoten bibs to secure it. The Breast pocket has a super handy lens cleaner on a leash. The Gortex pro shell is softer than previous Gortex products and does not swish as much. I can easily fit my helmet under the hood. The hand gaiters are a huge bonus.

Cons
Now to a few things I don't like. Unlike the Primaloft version of this jacket, this jacket has no hand pockets. It does have huge vents that make base layer pockets accessible, but I really like having hand pockets.

I have used this jacket so far on several backcountry day trips. It has lived up to everything it should be. It is completely waterproof and sheds water better than any other Gortex pro shell I have had. The water beads off when snow melts. The jacket as mentioned below by CHRP breathes amazing. It is completely wind proof and I am not going to discuss insulation because there is not any and you need to layer up. The more layers the colder the temp. I am 5'10" 160 lbs and I purchased this in a medium, which fits me perfect. I usually buy mediums in tops and bottoms so I would say true to size

Another question: is the tasty red orange as stated by one reviewer or is it actually red?

Responded on

leaning more toward orange imo

Responded on

I am split, I have some friends tell me it is orange and others tell me it is red. I think it is an in between, but I have orange counter tops at my house and when I have them on the counter they definitely look red to me. I really think it depends who you ask. I think in my opinion seeing them on my counter I lean more towards red than orange, but again is probably more in between the two. I hope that helps.

It is an orangish red, but it is not red as shown on the site.

Asif: I just checked the inventory records and we do not have more Deep Purple (size small) on order right now.

Responded on

If you really like this jacket, go to Norrona.com and buy it direct. They have plenty in inventory. The benefit of purchasing from Norway is any product over 120 US dollar you get free shipping. The product dollar amount will be lower from Norrona because BC .com increases their prices to compensate for importing fees. The downfall is you may incur duty fees, but many times can still be cheaper than buying from BC .com. The other downfall is if you do need to return, you have to ship back to Norway, but with a brand like Norrona, I rarely have to return anything. I shop from Norrona direct quite a bit because BC .com only has limited inventory of Norrona so they sell out quick. Also if you are a small size, definitely go for the small in this. This one is built with a little more room than say their active fit shells, so you will have room to layer even in a small. hope that helps.

Best Answer Responded on

Wanted to add a few other notes. So if you can't find your size and really want this jacket, like I said above you can purchase it direct from Norrona. Their price for this jacket is 579 USD. As I mentioned above this would qualify for free shipping to the US. The duty charge on this jacket is 48 USD. So the total you are looking at is 627 which is 11 USD cheaper than backcountry.com. Granted their sale is pretty bomb, but most people don't fit L and XL. hope that helps.

Hi Sit Rep...Situation report.. wondering if the Bamboo color will return to store?

Thanks

Responded on

Unfortunately we don't have any more of the Norr�na Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Shell Jacket in "bamboo" in stock and we don't have any on order at the moment either.

However, this is the beginning of a new year and we are placing a lot of new orders with our vendors. An order for "bamboo" colored jackets could well be in the mix. Please check back in a week or two if you haven't found an alternative source by then.

Jac, they have this jacket in bamboo at Norrona.com in all sizes other than XXL. It will actually be 11 dollars cheaper to buy from Norrona. Their price for this jacket is 579 USD. This would qualify for free shipping to the US. The duty charge on this jacket is 48 USD. So the total you are looking at is 627 which is 11 USD cheaper than backcountry.com. Granted their sale is pretty bomb, but most people don't fit L and XL. In all the times I have purchased direct it has been less than 1 week shipping. Hope that helps.

Awesome jacket with great fit/features

  • Fit: True to size

This is a great ski jacket. I looked at a number of similar Gore Tex 3-layer jackets but Norrona had the best set of features, fit (for me), and styling/colors (I have the Electric Blue) that I was looking for.

Fit: I am 6'5", with 43" chest, 225 lbs. The XL fits me perfectly. This jacket has a more tailored and trim "european" cut compared to Arcteryx/North Face/Patagonia. Its not slim fitting by any means; I can easy fit a lightweight down mid-layer (XL Arcteryx Cerium LT) underneath. The arms are nice and long and the length comes well past my hips.

Features:
I really like the stretch Gore-Tex used for this jacket which provides just enough give and flex when needed. The wrist gaiters and removable powder skirt are nice touches. The well designed hood easily fits over my helmet (Giro Seam) without being intrusive. There is also a goggle cloth on a detachable tether and a water-proof internal pocket that just fits an iPhone. The only thing that would be nice to have would be a internal mesh dump pocket for goggles, etc., but that would add bulk and weight to an otherwise lightweight jacket.

Put to the test: The first time out with this jacket was at Whistler with 49 cm of fresh overnight, 0 deg. C at the base and -10 up top, with heavy snow all day and strong winds up high. This jacket ate it all up and I stayed warm and dry all day. Totally windproof and no "wetting out" even by the end of the day. I was very impressed with how well the jacket breathed - even in the warm and damp conditions, I never had any moisture build up on the inside. A couple times while waiting in the lift I easily dumped heat with the underarm zippers. Note that these zippers open from each end, which is different from say Arcteryx where the zippers are together; at first I thought this would be an issue, but I like being able to open from the bottom to access inside pockets, or open from under the arm to vent heat without exposing my torso.

Highly recommend.

Michael, with my experience as a consumer buying from backcountry.com they only put in 1 order a year with Norrona for winter seasonals and 1 order for summer seasonals. These orders come in over a period of a couple weeks to months. With that said, they have to import Norrona from Norway or Sweden depending on the distributions of the item. It is too costly to pay duties several times /year. Long story short, whatever inventory they have from Norrona right now, they will not be getting anymore winter inventory until next year. Next year they may or may not have the same colors and will most likely expand and update models. If you are really interested in this item, go ahead and go to Norrona direct Norrona.com. As I have mentioned on here before, even with importing duty fees you will pay 10 dollars less than what you would on backcountry.com for full price and they will ship your jacket to your doorstep within 4 days (in my experience). Not bad for shipping across the pond . Again they will definitely be getting more of these late spring early fall next year for the 14-15 winter, but past season colors and design might not come back. I hope that helps.

hi, i am 5'7", 170 lbs., 41" chest, 33" waist. which size Lofoten jacket should i pick? Many thanks,

Responded on

If you prefer a slightly more slim, athletic fit--you'll be able to squeeze into a medium (just barely in the chest!). If you'd prefer a roomier cut, and plan to layer underneath, then pick up a large.

I personally tend to wear layers as tightly as possible without restricting movement, so I would tend towards the smaller of the two sizes, but your mileage (and personal preference!) may vary!

Not the same colour as advertised

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

I have the norrona women's jacket version and I absolutely love it. I bought the Tastey Red Men's version as a gift for someone else and was disappointed in the colour (thats why I gave it a 3 - not because of the quality of the jacket, but because the colour was completely off). It was not a red at all, but orange - a bright orange. We returned the jacket for a different colour. Other than that disappointment, I have had my norrona for a year now and I am continually impressed by it. They are excellent jackets, with small details that are very thought out that make the jacket, in my opinion, better than actreyx. While those jackets are also nice, I find that for the money, there just seem to be little details that don't quite work. While the norrona jackets are simplistic, there is nothing that i would change in them (except the colour)

FYI - The mens version seems to be built for taller and leaner builds (e.g. above 6ft) vs shorter and stockier builds (e.g. 5'8). There is a lot of extra room in the sleeves - they seem baggy at the armpit and tend to be long. The body of the jacket fits well.

Great Jacket

Excellent Jacket, lighter than I expected and a great fit. Very distinctive color (purple). Looking forward to using it on the slopes soon.

I'm 5'11 and 195 lbs. My son is 6'1 and 155 lbs and wears the medium pants and jacket. I think the XL would fit waist and chest for me but am concerned it would be too long in the sleeves and legs. Any help would be appreciated.

Responded on

on their website, they say the xl jacket is 23.2" from nape to waist, and 23.6" in the sleeve. You can compare that to your measurements to get an idea. also, they state that the size large jacket is for a 39.4" chest.

Physical Stats: 6'4" - 238#

When I sized myself and used the Norrona sizing chart - I sized into an XXL. I purchased the Lofoten Gore-Tex Primaloft jacket in that size and realized very quickly it was too large for my tastes.

I returned it and upgraded it to the Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Jacket at XL and find that it fits near perfect for reasonable layering, with the exception of the sleeves running longer than I would expect.

Its a matter of personal preference, if you like baggy fit for their athletic cuts, follow their size, otherwise stay true to your size.

Can this be used purely as a hiking jacket...

Posted on

Can this be used purely as a hiking jacket or is that overkill? How supple/soft/light is for freedom of movement?
What pants does it pair with for the snap closures feature?

Responded on

depends on the hiking you do. gore-tex pro is a great material and the added stretch means it wont hinder your movement. there are lighter waterproof materials, but they're not quite as burly. but if you're only going out in decent conditions, you could save some coin and get gore-tex 2 layer.

the jacket pairs with other norrna lofoten pants.

Responded on

The snaps are basic, snap to loops that most all ski\snowboard pants have under the belt loops. This jacket is way overkill for hiking, its very large with skiing features (helmet compatible hood, powder skirt, pass pocket)
I usually use a mountaineering jacket or light technical shell for hiking. For ultra light the Marmot Super Mica is awesome. Burly all year use I like the Outdoor research Mentor or furio. all made to be worn with packs, lightweight. no features that are ski specific.

Responded on

My two cents - if you're forced to buy only one jacket and you're doing multiple activities that includes snow sports, this is going to be a great jacket for you in that case. Otherwise, I would consider a true hiking/mountaineering shell for your needs given the same reasons as above.

The compatible pants in the Lofoten line are extremely burly and personally not something I would hike with unless I'm scaling snow capped peaks. Unfortunately, each brand has their own snap/zip enclosure systems that are generally incompatible with other brands, so keep that in mind when purchasing.
