Measure First

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

I should have known better, I bought the Yellow Saffron Norrona Loften Gor-Tex Pro Shell for my wife. She's always a size medium (in "American Sizes"), large is always too big, small is always too small for her. This product DOESN'T run small, it's exactly how Backcountry noted, look at "PLEASE NOTE:" above. I tried surprising my wife with it and bought a medium without checking the sizing chart, had I checked and bought the right size this jacket would have been perfect for her.

Other than that, the jacket out of the bag was awesome. Great weight, features, feel, and it has the hour glass athletic fit. I'd put love it if we didn't have to return it....and now it's no longer on sale. Maybe next year I'll try again!

This jacket is amazing!

  • Fit: True to size

This is the best shell I have ever owned. It is stylish, versatile, breathable, and light-weight.

Large wrists for total coverage

The wrist sizes are pretty large on this jacket but it completely covers gloves & mittens. Very easy to adjust the straps and tighten around the wrists while you're wearing gloves. No more cold, wet hands after a yardsale!

100% Helmet-Compatible!

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

Amazing shell! I love this jacket. It is 100% helmet-compatible. There are a lot of jackets out there that say they are helmet-compatible but once you try and zip the jacket all the way up, it's way too tight on the face. This isn't the case with this shell. The hood fits very comfortably over a ski helmet and it can zip all the way up without being too uncomfortable.

I'm 5'3'' and have this jacket in a small (size small helmet as well) The jacket fits true to size, with room for layering underneath (as it is a shell)

I've worn this in really cold, windy conditions and barely feel any breeze underneath the jacket. The seams are taped so it keeps the cold out. 100% waterproof too.

No hand pockets, but I like that since I barely use those pockets anyway. Two chest pockets, (goggle lens cloth included, attached inside one chest pocket) one sleeve pocket and one internal chest pocket.

I HIGHLY recommend this shell! Also, I have this in the Yellow Saffron color- Nice and bright for snowy conditions when you can't see anything or anyone. Better to stand out than blend in!

100% Helmet-Compatible!

Hi, on the above picture the purple haze jacket looks more like bright pink. I checked the color on the Norrona website and the it looks totally different. Could you please let me know which picture (the one on your website or the one on Norrona'swbsite) represents the best the purple haze. Thanks

Responded on

Hey there, so I checked out the Purple Haze color on Norrona's site as well, and they are slightly different. It's really a matter of lighting when the picture was taken. We took this photo in-house on the model so we had specific lighting directed towards the model. I'd say the purple haze color will look slightly more like the color we show (a little brighter)- it all just depends on the lighting you are in. Hope this helps!

is this jacket stretchy? Is it the only one in the lineup that is?

Best Answer Responded on

Gore-text pro shell is not what i could call "stretchy". It will have the same feel as most high-end waterproof breathable shells. A somewhat stiff nylon feel. A smooth face fabric of some type of nylon with laminates (the gore-text part)on the inside of that face fabric. The gaiters are listed as being stretchy lycra though... and I do see in the description that it says the face fabric is nylon ripstop stretch (somewhat confusing thing to say), but this will not be anywhere near as stretchy as a softshell.

Awesome shell!

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

I love this jacket. Fit is awesome. I had to size up a bit for the bust area. otherwise fits pretty true to size for an athletic fitted cut. Totally wind and waterproof and very durable. Colors are great, my brother can always find me in bounds or in the backcountry, even in a blizzard!

Someone reviewed about color mistake in this site. I want you to make sure whether teal color with orange, pink & green zipper is pond or northern light. thanks.

Responded on

Yes, the teal jacket with orange/pink/green zippers is POND. So if you want this pond jacket with multi color zippers, you have to order pond, and not northern light. This might be confusing, because in you cart you will have the wrong color, but trust me, you will get the POND jacket in the mail, because backcountry does not look at the color on screen, they look at codes on items. I did it and my orderhistory still shows the wrong color, but says pond. By the way, i cannot stress enough ow beautiful this pond color is.
If still in doubt! Check norrona's official website for this product:

Hope this helps and you get the jacket you want!! Good luck!

I noticed BC fixed their little color confusion. Pond is sold out, and northern light is the bright blue colored jacket. Disregard my previous warnings...

This might easily be one of the best products not only Norrona's, but on the entire gear market. Fits great, colors are very noticeable in the backcountry, which is not only pretty, but safe as well. Material is bombproof, yet light, by far my favorite jacket!!! I am 5'11" 155 lbs and got it in XL and have plenty of room for layering, as they run a little large, which is the case for most Norrona gear. I cannot say enough great things about it.

note for all of you that are considering colors Pond and Northern Light: there's a mistake on this website, and the Pond color is really Northern Light and Northern Light is Pond. pond is the dark teal one with orange/pink/green zippers and if you want it you have to order Pond, not Northern Light. i got mine in Pond and it is B E A U T I F U L ! ! ! !

Hi, what are the chances of you having in stock more sizes and colors of the Lofoten in the next month or two? I am looking for size M but I don't like the colors you have in stock currently. Thanks

I've had the pleasure of using an older version of this jacket. I've used a lot of ski jackets in my day, and this is one of the best out there. I've thrashed mine over 100+ days on the hill and the backcountry, and it still has tons of life left! It's durability is excellent, function and fit is great. I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone who spends lots of days out in the snow.

Love this jacket for skiing!

This is a wicked ski jacket!! There is enough room to move in it, it is breathable and keeps you dry, awesome colours (can't go wrong with Norrona), and the chin zip is just the right size with or without the hood (I usually don't use the hood unless it's storming). I returned the insulated version because I found it too warm - the shell is perfect because I can layer a fleece underneath if I need it. zippers are in the front - nicely accessible when skiing with a pack on in the backcountry. The powder skirt easily zips on and off. I have also used this in a pinch for rainy weather - with the beautiful blue colour, you can't go wrong and get tonnes of compliments!!

If/when will more sizes of the Lofoten Pro Shells will be in stock? The only alternative seems to be directly from Norrona and that is far out of my price range. Thanks.

Ira, use the "Chat Now" feature and one of the gear reps can give you an approximate date on when and if they expect more in. BTW, this is a great jacket!

You can also check where Backcountry sells some returned merchandise and you could get a great deal on one. I know they have a size small for over half off because I looked at it for my wife.
