Description

For big-mountain bombers.

The Women's Lofoten Shell is Norrona's most versatile freeride jacket for powder hounds. 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 control airflow.

A Zip-Seal system allows you to zip the Lofoten into Zip-Seal compatible pants for complete coverage whether you're touring in the backcountry or cruising the resort's back bowls. 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 motion, and a drawcord at the hem and hook-and-loop cuffs ensure proper coverage. Additionally, because Backcountry is Norrona's exclusive U.S. retailer, you might be the only one in the resort wearing this colorful jacket.

Hamming it up

Hamming it up

I've got a HUGE puffy jammed on underneath this jacket because it was SO frigid.
It's pretty roomy for me - see sizing info below.

I'm debating between the Lofoten gtx pro and the lyngen driflex 3
What does the jacket feel like. I don't really want a crinkly rustling shell.

Tweaked Fit

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

I had a Lofoten shell from 3 years ago, Norrona has changed the fit a bit.
The shape of this jacket is significantly more hourglass now. The jacket flares out quite dramatically beneath the breast. I personally did not love this cut (I prefer a straighter cut) but I know women who do appreciate this more tailored look.

I am 5'3" and 120 lbs and the small fits nicely with room to layer up underneath on cold days - even with a HUGE puffy. I hypothesize I could get away with the size XS, but I appreciate the extra wiggle room the size S affords.

Construction, in true Norrona style, is totally bombproof. My last shell lasted over 200 days on the hill and backcountry touring.

The ample pit zips provide huge opportunity for venting and are easy to reach and use - zipping action is very smooth.

The feature I like MOST about this jacket are the very wide, princess style cuffs.
They are fairly easy to wrestle over the gaiters of my mittens and I like that the cuff extends so far over the back of the palm. I do not like, however, that Norrona used two separate patches of velcro to secure the sleeve strap. I find that the EXACT place where I need to affix the velcro is the zone where Noronna did not put velcro. This doesn't make sense in my mind....not sure what they were going for there, maybe weight savings? It's a little silly if you ask me.

The wrist gaiters are a nice feature - I prefer not to use them as I dislike the texture. I love that the powder skirt is removable. The silicone grip on that thing is SUPER sticky. It really helps to keep the jacket in place - I don't need it because I use bibs, but this is a really well-designed powder skirt.

All in all a very durable, stormproof option for someone who logs tons of days on the mountain. Norrona is a brand I trust to get me through the nastiest storms.

where is this made?
