    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.

    Best pants ever

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

    I rode my previous Lofoten pants for 5 years and didn't even have to think about it when the time came to replace them. The fit is great (loose enough but not baggy), the pockets are fantastic, the zipper link to Norrona jackets is perfect (the only complaint is that they removed the feature from Narvik jackets). And lastly, the quality is outstanding. I rode my previous Lofoten pants 200+ days.

    Awesome Shell Pants

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

    I got these pants this season because I was overdue for an upgrade. I've got to say that so far, these things are absolutely legit. I'm tall and these pants fit me perfectly in a size Large. Great fit and finish, quality materials, and great pop when you end up in a photo. I couldn't be happier.

    FOR SKINNY PEOPLE

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I am 5'9" with at 32" waist. I ordered a Medium. Everything is baggy with the exception of the waist which is pretty snug. If you are overweight at all with shorter legs I would steer clear of these pants.

    Good pant/Bib

      Nice set. Everything you would expect from gore tex. Durable too.

      Awkward fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Size Bought: Large

      Got the yellow pants. Color and texture are spot on but the fit is awkward. They are long and bulky in the bottom which is fine, but around the hip an bum area it gets really tight. I have hip pads and I can still zip up but its tight and uncomfortable. Just note that if you got any booty at all and if you're wearing hip pads, don't get these pants. There are designed for skinny guys.

      Cool Black looks a bit more Grey outside

      Here's a photo of the Cool Black color Norrona Lofoten Bibs in action - as you can see, they look a bit lighter in person/on snow.

      good gore-tex shell pant

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

      im 6.2" 85kg,L is a little big,but it's OK.

      goood pant iove it.

      Tough as Nails

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 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

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

      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.

      Great shell ski pants

      Included zippered waist

      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.

      Included zippered waist

      included suspenders

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

      included suspenders

      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.

      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



      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

      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...

      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?

      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

      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.

      5'10" 33" waste 180lb what size pant would you get?

      Best Answer

      Hi David,



      With a 33" waste you are right in between the medium and the large. If you plan on wearing some layers underneath I would go for the large, if you don't plan on having much on under there, the mediums might be the way to go. In any case, looks like some people are saying this runs a little small so the large may be the way to go either way.



      Thanks,

      Size recommendation for 6'3" 225lbs, 35" waist, 34" inseam ??

      Hi Ron,



      Unfortunately I think that whatever size you go with here is going to be a little on the short side. All things considered I feel like the large would be the way to go for you. If you want to hit me up for the order and they don't work out for whatever reason I can help you out with a return.



      Thanks,

      Get XL. I have 34 inseam and 35 waist.

      Hello, im 6'1" and 220lbs muscular build w around a 48" chest and 32-33 inseam, recommend the xl or xxl?

      Marlin H.



      I would lean you more towards the XL as you would be swimming in the XXL with you height. Depeneding on what you would be using them for (ie weight on large items) you might be able to squeeze into a Large as well. Another thing to consider is purchasing both and returning the one that doesn't fir for a refund

      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.

      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 :)
