Complete and total protection.
In the harshest of ski conditions, staying dry and covered is crucial to your survival. For the ultimate protection against the elements, the Norrøna Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Shell One Piece Suit is in a class of its own. This durable, minimalistic one piece is constructed with two types of Gore-Tex Pro Shell. The upper half features a new ripstop stretch face fabric for greater mobility, while the lower part features a durable hardshell design with super-strong Aramid lower leg reinforcement. With the Gore-Tex construction and one-piece design, you can be confident that absolutely no weather will be able to penetrate the shell or reach your body, no hatter how harsh the conditions are or how long they persist.
For even more weather protection, the Lofoten one-piece has built-in
wrist and boot gaiters and a helmet-compatible storm hood with one hand
tightening. Asymmetrical cuffs provide a
better glove interface, and Y-Sleeves are designed with extra gusseting for freedom
of movement, even with a harness. Now, you may be thinking that a one-piece
suit is a great idea—until
you start hiking and it feels like a steam room inside. No need to worry, a 3/4 length leg zip and extra-long X-Open underarm zips offer plenty of ventilation, and the Gore-Tex Pro Shell has excellent breathability. A generous pocket count gives you storage options inside and out, and the loose fit keeps things nice and relaxed.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
So the new onesie is out and the build gets better and better every year. This one has an internal media pocket, a thigh pocket, card pocket and two Napoleon pockets. The side zips go the length of the leg. The pit zips go all the way down. Of course the good is helmet compatible and the gaiters are built in. The only complaints I have are the price gouging norrona is doing in the US market. I bought mine direct from norrona for a cool 1200 with free shipping. I have not had it on the slope yet, just waiting for the deep stuff to drop, but speculating this is going to be my go to for those deep powder days and in waist deep backcountry. As sizing goes I am 5"10 165 (32 inch waist, 41 inch chest) and bought this in a medium. It fits perfect with a few layers on underneath. I feel like I will comfortably be able to rotate lite bases to heavy bases without jeopardizing dynamic movement. The crotch sags a bit (I have A 32 inch inseam) but when I raise my arms the crotch comes all the way up. The same goes for the shoulders, there is a little sag in the shoulders. But when I raise one arm and drop another I reach a stop gap. All in all I would say true to size but won't know more until I get it on the steeps.
Um yeah I play dress up sometimes...
