Norrona's most durable and functional freeride pants with a zip-off bib.

Choose the colorful and playful options of the Norrona Women's Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Shell Pants, or go with the sleek black—either way, you'll stand out amongst the hordes of backcountry boarders with the amazing functionality and high quality that Europeans expect out of Norrona. is the exclusive US retailer for Norrona products so you can shred in pants that usually eat up Eiger's powder for breakfast. Made with Gore-Tex Pro, this pair of pants features guaranteed waterproof protection that keeps you dry in some of the stormiest weather you can come across at ski resorts, and the pant remains highly breathable so you stay remarkably comfortable if you're touring up a big mountain under a sunny sky. Norrona also used Gore-Tex's thin 13mm tape to cover all the seams for extra waterproof protection that prevents snow from seeping in, but because the tape is so thin, this lightweight pant remains non-bulky and ready for any skiing or snowboarding adventure you head out on. The integrated, zip-off bib extends coverage past your waist, but not up too high (that gets uncomfortable), and it can easily be left behind when you're just cruising.

A loose fit leaves plenty of room in the Lofoten for layers on the coldest days of the year, and it lets you move freely at the park for spring shred sessions. Norrona reinforced the lower legs with super durable Aramid so you can ski the years away without a tear. The full-length side zippers let you take this pant on or off even with boots on, and you can unzip to let a bit if steam out when you're hiking up steep switchbacks. The snow gaiters rise up just below your calf to fully protect your boots and legs from the snow, and water-resistant zippers keep you dry in ways that most ski pants don't. Norrona's proprietary Custom-fit waist system lets you adjust the waist band quickly and simply for the ideal fit regardless of how many layers you have on. The Zip-seal system lets you connect this pant to a jacket so you're completely covered from snow storms, and the Snap-seal system further connects a compatible jacket to the pants.

Simply Amazing

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used these in windy conditions as well as during a snowstorm that had the really wet snow. Never felt the wind or the snow even though my bibs were covered with the snow, I never got wet. Wore these with my Arcteryx Sidewinder SV jacket and Icebreaker 200 Oasis leggings, and they performed perfectly. Love the number and location of the pockets..I know that I'll be using these for many years to come.

Best pants ever!!

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

This is my second pair of these pants, and these ones hold up as well as the ones from two seasons ago. I use these while at my ski instructing job, and love them. They put up with the abuse from new skiers running into them, to shredding up the mountain in my free time.
On the negative wind chill days I wear a light base layer and usually a pair of soccer shorts under and am toasty warm.
The removable bib is awesome and easy to put on for those pow days. I also love the option to make this a one piece.

Overall these are worth the money, I have one pair that easily has 200+days on them and they are still as awesome as they where on day one, and my new ones have 30+ days of little kids running into them and still have no cuts in the material or signs of damage.

Even though these are a bit pricey I know I will not have to replace them for a few years and in the long run end up saving a ton of money with not having to replace my ski pants every year. That and I get a lot of comment on them.

Fit is true to size. Well waist is, I'm short so legs are always long on me.

Awesome pants - Love the high waist

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

I originally bought these because the colors were bright and uncommon for women! I liked the suspenders. They fit great - I took a chance and got an XS size - I wear anywhere between a 2-6 pant or a 30x32 levi's. They fit without being too snug or loose. Any larger I think would be baggy. All the pockets & zippers I love. Finally some great fitting pants in great colors and style for women! I actually got 2 pair in different colors.

A version of this bib from 3 years ago.

3 years of on.

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have an older version of these pants, have used them for the past 3 seasons and logged well over 200 days on them. The durability is impressive, and though they are nearing their retirement, I continue to use them. After puttin these thru the wringer? here are my impressions:

- Durable (ditto)
- Comfortable, LOVE that I don't have a waistline impeding movement around the hill, you hardly know you are wearing these things. The newer version has MUCH improved upon the suspenders. The older pants used a material that stretched out pretty quickly. This year's model uses better suspender material, and the configuration of said suspenders is more comfortable and secure.
- Waterproofing is awesome. I've treated these once with Nikwax Tech Wash and TX Direct and have never experienced problems with wetting out, even with extensive use. Really great.
- Zips/vents! Waterproof zippers are awesome, I never worry about my valuables or electronics when stashed in these pockets. The HUGE full length zips on the pants are awesome, I love using these pants for touring or hiking because you can cool down so quickly.

- Even though the gaiters are reinforced, I wore holes into the outer fabric with my boot buckles after about 75 days. I reinforced them (ok -well, my mom did that, I watched) again with some heavy canvas, but they too have holes now. (Maybe I should adjust my stance???)

- On the current version, Norrona uses a noticably thicker bit of reinforcing Aramid fabric. Hoping this addresses the issues I experienced with the older version.

All in all: great value. I've thrashed these, they still have life. Love 'em so much I just got the green pair to replace them.

Oops. Forgot fit.
I think these run pretty big/baggy. I am 5'3" and 120 lbs went with size small. They are definitely NOT skin tight, but not so baggy that I'm embarrassed. I think someone taller and heavier could definitely get away with the size small. They are fairly long on me and the waist is loose.

I'm 5'4 and 126 lbs, waist 26, hips 33-34" so, really no hips or butt. I have a short waist and long legs (muscular). I tried the women's small which fit except for the crotch b/c it was a little too short. The women's medium was huge in the legs, although the waist could be adjusted to take care of the big waist/hips/butt, I was most concerned about the legs being huge. So, went with the men's is much like the women's small with the exception of 2" more in the inseam/crotch area and slightly bigger in the waist, though not really noticeable

Hello, Looking for help with sizing. I'm 5'6", 132lbs, waist 30" and seat 37 1/2". Should I go with small or medium?? I definitely want room to move but do not want a lot of bulk. Thanks!

Hello amep, thanks for the question!
I'm not sure if this can be of help, but at least it will provide a reference point for you. In my experience, Norrona typicaly has a looser and longer fit than most typical outdoor brands.

I have a size Small in this pant, I am 5'3" and 120 lbs with a 28" waist. I can't actually say I've recently measured my booty, but it's about average in size.

The fit is comfortable, if a bit on the loose side (also pretty long, but the suspenders also help you tailor the pant length to your desire). I would admit that the size Small is a bit baggier than I would have hoped, but the XS was too tight. The tabs on the waistbelt ensure a lot of versatility with fit, and the seat area isn't tight on me at all. Let me know if you have any further questions, been rocking these bibs going on 3 years now...

Could you please help with the sizing for these pants? Per the sizing information provided, I'm somewhere between a "S" and "XL". I'm 5'10", 135lbs and usually wear a 38 European Size. The trouble tends to be length with pants - my inseam is approx. 33". Would these pants fit me - if so, which size? Thank you!!

Best Answer Responded on

I am 5'11" 155lbs and have a36" inseam in comparison. I have no choice but to get it in XL, because of my leg length, and i could use at least another inch. I am pretty sure that you will fit beautifully in a Large, with room to layer underneath. Waist is beautifully and easily adjustable and the inseam length should be right for you. Other than the fit, you will really enjoy the features of these super amazing pants!! Good luck!!
