Bombproof protection for the versatile skier.

The Women's Lofoten is Norrona's most versatile freeride pant for powder slayers both in and out of the resort. Its Gore-Tex Pro shell provides guaranteed waterproofing that remains extremely breathable for fast-moving skiers and snowboarders. The low-profile bib is removable to accommodate snapped-in powder skirts, and X-open ventilation uses two-way zippers at each leg to control airflow.

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. And, because Backcountry is Norrona's exclusive U.S. retailer, you might be the only one in the backcountry or at the resort wearing these colorful pants.

3 years of use - READ 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.


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.
