Description

Bombproof for big mountains.

The Men's Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Shell is Norrona's most durable and functional backcountry freeride pant for skiers and snowboarders. Its Gore-Tex Pro shell provides guaranteed waterproofing that remains extremely breathable for fast-moving powder hounds. The low-profile bib is removable to accommodate snapped in powder skirts, and X-open ventilation uses two-way zippers at each leg 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. Knee-length side zippers accommodate ski boots and allow access to the ankle gaiters. A loose fit leaves plenty of room for layers while articulated knees ensure a full range of motion, and Norrona's Custom-fit waist system ensures a snug fit no matter how many layers you have on. Aramid lower leg reinforcements make sure you can ski in these pants for multiple seasons. Because Backcountry.com is Norrona's exclusive retailer, you might be the only one in the backcountry and at the ski resort styling these colorful pants.

Tough as Nails

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 150 lbs
    Size Purchased: Small

I cannot get over how tough these pants are. The fabric deflects everything, ski edges, branches, rocks, and snot rockets. I have used them extensively in the PNW and recently brought them on a trip to Utah and they still look new. The waist is a little small overall, with the size small just fitting me, I tried the mediums too but the waist was out of control big even with the compression straps?I have a size 30 waist. I do wish the smalls were a tad longer, but they get the job done. You cannot go wrong with these, they make other pants of similar price look silly.

oh! I will also add that I wear my mid layers over the bib portion. The bib is made of a super breathable material that fits close to skin. The most I can wear under it is a Patagonia R1. Anything else ends up being too bulky.

poor warranty/repair service in the USA

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

although NORRONA manufactures outstanding gear their return/warranty program is not the best in the USA as instead of replacing defective items within the warranty period they only have a small repair/service center in the USA so if something breaks specially Gore Tex you end up having to wait months for it to be repaired which sucks as you need to buy another pair while you wait months to have the defective gear repaired

Rasta Pants

These Norrona Gore Tex Shell Pants are the bomb. They are beyond sturdy, have great pockets, light yet protective, full length vents, expensive but worth the $$$.

Great shell ski pants

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

I skied 5 days in Big White, BC over New Years in -5C to -14C temps (and colder at the summits). Love the 2 huge front pockets, full length side zips to quick venting. On par with the fit from Arc'teryx pants (slightly looser, but not snowboarder loose). 3 options at the waist - included suspenders I found was too snug around the belly when I had multiple layers on. Also included is a zippered waist, or if you can use snaps on the powder skirt that comes with the Norrona jacket (my choice). I tend to run cold, so I had on underneath a pair of expedition weight baselayer pants (Terramar 3.0 body sensors alone) and found it a bit too cold on the chair lifts, so adding a cheap pair of Misty Mountain fleece pants that I cut off below the knees was just perfect for me.

If you don't like the suspenders, you can swap it out for these zippered waist that fits perfectly to the Norrona Jacket. Great for those huge powder days.

fits a bit too snug around my belly, especially after a few layers

i felt that too.... i wear it under my layers... i usually need a "warm" (body heat) pocket anyway to keep things which dont like the cold so much so it works well for that...

WOW, Norrona gives Arcteryx a run

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

These pants are all they are cracked up to be and more. I purchased a set straight from Norrona, as I wanted yellow in an XXL. I am glad I did. I like my ski wear to fit baggy and relaxed. I am 5'10" 190 44" shoulders and 35" waist. With a pair of compression pants and Long johns these fit perfectly. My Arcteryx micon pants in a XXL are much larger, they have a extremely baggy fit, as those have a more technical athletic fit even though it is Norrona's baggy fit.

The quality of these parts are amazing so far. Like I said they I've arcteryx a run for the money as the top quality of outerwear. The Lofted Pro Shell Pants are built well and I hope they last as long as my Micon's have. The Micon are my other favorite pant, I have two pair with roughly 100 days on each.

Responded on

Your review made me reconsider to buying a XXL pants. I like my clothes baggy. Do you have a jacket also? I'm 6'4'' 210 I dunno whether to go with and XL jacket or a XXL

Responded on

I went with a Large jacket and it fits perfectly. I would think you would want the XXL in the jacket. I did however get the anorak

I'm looking for these in black or gray but the zippers on the black and the green bib is too loud for me. Does anyone know what next years colors will be? I'm matching with a dark purple Lofoten jacket.

Responded on

Hey! Sadly we do not know what next years colors will be but most of the time Norrona, goes with a flash of color on there gear. But who knows, they might make a pair that's a bit toned down :)

On to a comprehensive review...

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

First of all, this is my 4th -5th year in this Lofoten line of bibs and jacket. The bibs are almost identical to last years, but a few modifications from years past. 1st, the bibs front pockets are external (meaning they pouch out, instead of flush with the gortex material and pouching into the leg). This does a couple of things. It gives you more room for storage on the thigh pockets and makes for a more comfortable ride. 2nd the bibs colors (zippers and bibs) are coordinated with any of the jackets in the series, so all colors get along. This pricing has gone up considerably from years past these bibs use to go for 550 or there abouts in the past. Now on to the specifics. The YKK zippers are bomb, and super durable. They are going to last seasons. The waterproof seams are going to wear over time, but they will give you a few years to get your moneys worth depending on how much use they get (remember they have a 5 year warranty). The bibs themselves have a loose fit (considering you bought the right size for you). The fit allows for plenty of dynamic movement and allows you room to breath. Obviously the GTX pro shell gives you 9 billion pores/ square inch to stop unwanted condensation and heat. Now these bibs will allow for a harness and it seats really nice for those ski mountaineers like myself! On to the fit... Well I am 5'10" 165lbs with a 33 inch waist and 32 inch inseam. I have worn these and continue to wear them in the medium, which gives me great length and coverage. I have extra room in the waist for layering (usually a mid layer and an extra mid layer when temps dip). I would say I have an extra 2.5-3 inches around. The bibs are adjustable and my height fits the shoulder straps with room to go up and down. I would say if your 5'11"-6'0" you may be pushing it and large might be for you. Aside from that you will not find a better built bib on the market. The sizing and cut is perfection. Questions, please ask...

Responded on

A couple more notes (they really limit your review space)... The jackets in the line have a elastic band that runs around the bottom with 2 button snaps on the front and back that snap into the pants creating a powder skirt. The skirt will seat tight with a beaded barrier (I think silicone all around) that sticks to the bibs. The built in gaiters open all the way, and are velcro with snap buttons on the top and bottom. They will easily fit over any ski boot. The bottom of the bibs have a strong protection at the bottom called Aramid system material. This material is bomb. The only way your going to rip it is if you take a crampon and intentionally gouge it. This will ensure you can go hard making any dynamic movement. The waist system is adjustable like all Norrona pants, so you are going to be able to tailer these pants in the waist for your needs, layering up or down.

Nice review! How warm do you find these shell pants? I tend to run cold on the legs and have only owned insulated pants in the past, but really loving the Norrona colors. On a really cold day, would these pants do well enough warmth wise with a thicker midweight underpants?

Responded on

Dar105257438 , These themselves aren't insulated so you really just get a shell. When I wear the bibs I usually wear a medium weight base layer underneath and am comfortable into the single digits for the most part. I may be bias, seeing as how I spend 60% of my winters outside, but obviously your base layer will determine the amount of cold you can tolerate. You will get warm are trapped between your legs and the shell of course if your moving which will insulate, but these are not going to be an insulated layer by any means. I hope that helps your out

Responded on

Bought these today after trying them on, small was a bit looser than I imagined (I've got skinny legs) but lots of room to move. The bib is a bit snug, I'll likely wear it under my mid layer top. For sizing, I usually wear 33" waist and 32" length pants (I'm 5'10", 155 lbs). I'll try to post some pics of the black pair I got, love the different colored zippers.

Beware the bib fit-very euro

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Since you cannot try these on anywhere in the US outside of the brick and mortar store in Utah, I took a chance ordering these sight unseen. Finish wise-these are very well made bibs, great material, great stitching and well proportioned-except for the bib itself.
Im 5'9" and weigh 185 in my birthday suit-I'm not particularly broad chested or 'stout'. I ordered a medium. The pants portion of these fit perfectly on my 33 inch waist and the length afforded me good coverage and ground clearance while wearing my ski boots. When it came to the bib portion (which is removable) I was very surprised to find that it was uncomfortably tight around the upper portion of the fabric. The lower portion was nicely snug-not too much so, but at the top it was constricting my breathing. I contacted both Norrona and Backcountry to see if there would be a way to exchange the bib portion for a large size but no dice. It appears that while the lower portion of the bib is made of a softshell stretch fabric, the very top seam has little to no give in it-which would be a welcome design element.
If I cannot get a tailor to extend the bib I'm going to have to return them. A shame since they are otherwise very attractive and desirable.
Norrona will do well in the US if they can adjust the tailoring to be less euro-centric.

This is the 4th or 5th year I have worn the Lofoten bib and jacket series. Just like the first time, I am just as impressed as the last, if not more. The bibs fit just like last years, so if you had last years gear it is going to be almost identical. For those of you who are new to the Lofoten bib, like mfup588981 below (sounds to be), I would have to disagree that this is a euro fit at all. First of all mfup588981, you are 185 lbs. I would automatically say r/t your weight however distributed, you are on the cusp of needing a large bib. I am 165 lbs 5'10" with a 33 inch (actual) waist size and the medium is absolutely perfect for me. I am a true medium in all categories so considering you have 20 lbs on me there is a discrepancy. I would say I am proportional from the top down (for those of you wondering). 2nd when I am wearing the bib, I have about 2" maybe slightly more for layering comfortably. the bibs on the top portion are made from an elastic material that allows it to stretch over layers unlike the actual pants portion of the bibs. Above is all educated guesses given the information that you have given. All in all, I am going to just throw my opinion out and say you are a large and need a large size bib. I have several friends in the mid 180s-190s who wear Norrona products and all wear size large. I hope that helps others thinking about buying Norrona products.

Responded on

Agree to disagree john. The large would have been far too large in length and waist. The only area that the bib did not fit perfectly was at the top of the bib portion. While there is an "elasticity" in that fabric it has a short limit and was literally like a corset for me. I wish it were otherwise because the bibs are the nicest I've worn. I stand by my evaluation.

Responded on

Personally, I prefer to wear these pants without the removable bibs. I have zipped them back on from time to time, and they are definitely nice in some situations; however, I like to go without and haven't had any issues with keeping my pants up.

Responded on

More info:Recap (5'9" 185 lbs athletic build) I've since gone through some other mfr's bibs and took a chance at trying these in a large. Some impressions: Overall these are great-fit and finish is so superior to whatever else I've tried. The inseam length could be about an inch or two shorter for me (30 inseam) the waist has some adjustment room-(I wear a 33) but its not as ginormous as I anticipated. The bib still has a very snug fit around the chest (i'm a 42) and its significantly better than the medium but still noticeable when taking deep breaths. I'd love the bib pocket to be about 1/2 in taller-would fit the iphone 6 perfectly-as is I have to 'lever' it in there-its totally doable but definitely a snug fit. Time will tell on the cuffs but barely scuffed after two days of tele this weekend.

Responded on

hey mfup, I feel I'm in exactly the same boat as you. 5'10, same weight.... I feel the waist I'm about tapped out but it feels good ... but yeah the bib part is a shocker. I was thinking about ordering the large to compare, but am concerned about the length ... I'm not into the baggy look and I feel the medium is about as far as I'm comfortable going length wise. What do you think?
Must say, they are very well constructed.

Responded on

the large is definitely longer, and its kind of baggy on me. i would love to shorten them by 2.5 in at least. i'm finding that because of the length the ski edges are abrading the keprotec but strangely only on one cuff.
