Mother Nature's got nothin' on the Norrona Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Shell Pant.

Long days out in the backcountry call for bomber protection and durability. The baggy-fit Norrona Women's Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Shell Pant gives you exactly that—plus a healthy dose of Norwegian style. Norrona supped-up these bib pants with top-of-the-line waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric—you'll stay dry and warm no matter how nasty the squall. The Lofoten Pant's high suspender bib and Zip-seal System work together to keep you protected from the cold and wet no matter how deep the goods get beyond the skin track. Aramid reinforcements on the Lofoten Pant's cuffs stand up to backcountry abuse and full-leg zips put an end to overheating while you hike.

Here's what others have to say...

Would not want anything else

These are the best pants, EVER! They do fit baggy, so there is plenty of room to move around comfortably. I always freeze on the lift, and this is the first time I can say that I didn't feel the wind. Amazing!

The pockets on the front of the legs are very handy. I purchased a size medium instead of a small because I am 5'8" 130 lbs and I didn't think a 29" inseam would be long enough. While the pants are a bit big, the waist is adjustable.

Five hundred dollars is a lot to spend for a pair of ski pants, but they work, and that's what matters to me. I skied in very wet snow and 50 degree conditions a couple of days ago. I bit is pretty bad, and have a huge bruise on my leg. These pants kept me completely dry and I'm pretty sure they saved my leg from being sliced by the side of my ski due to their thickness.

Almost awesome... but not quite

I was so, so, so excited to get these pants that zip to my Norrona jacket that I love so much! Alas, I ended up returning them. Here are the pros and cons:

- Zips to the Gore-Tex jacket. Love the idea! Way cooler than wearing bibs.
- Rad zippers!
- Super bomber fabric all over, extra super bomber fabric all the way around the bottom of each leg.

- The XL is huge, like out of control huge. I am 5'8", 180 lbs, and the XL was huge everywhere. The inseam is 37"! Who was their XL fit model, a Norweigan giantess? Maybe.
- The pant to jacket connection was a little strange. I expected a direct connection, but there is a zip-on flap that connects the two pieces, and it folds down in a strange way. So you end up with three layers of outerwear around your waist when it's all zipped together, which is quite bulky.
- The jacket is great for ski mountaineering, but the pants most certainly are not. They are huge, heavy and bulky and take up tons of space in a pack.

So, like I said before, they are almost awesome, but not quite. Sad.

I'm 5'11" and need a 37" inseam. So you don't need to be that tall to need an XL :) Thanks for the info and a pic - very helpful!!

I can't decide which size to get. I'm right in between S and M I am 5"5 and 125lbs. I have pretty short legs, but pretty strong ones from skiing. I want to be able to fit a pair of fleece long johns underneath. When you say they run large do you mean they are long or roomy?

Responded on

i bought the mediums last year and they were huge on me. i'm 5'8 and 130 lbs. usually a 28 in the waist. so i would go small. i usually wear a medium in everything. hope that helps.

Responded on

I agree with "ski." These do run large. I am also 5'8" and 130 lbs and the medium I purchased is quite large on me. I like them a bit baggy, so they work for me.

best pants ever

best pants ever. i got stuck in waist-deep powder and stayed dry. but, despite the serious waterproof protection while outside, the all-the-way-around waist zip allows for easy bathroom breaks. they definitely run large, but the waist tabs allow you to customize to some extent and the fit is pretty flattering for a pair of baggy snowpants. i wear size 8-10 in regular pants, L in most snowboard pants, and the M in these are pretty roomy on me even with a midweight baselayer underneath. the white gets filthy after a couple minutes in the parking lot slush so i'd recommend the ebony if you don't mind the neon zips.

Great bibs, love 'em.

Got these bibs a few months ago and I've been out in them almost every weekend. Went ice climbing, mountaineering and skiing and they performed great in all areas.

The only thing that was a little strange is that the upper part of the bib above the waist zipper does not have fabric covering the spot right above the upper fly snap, so there is a little opening right there. Not a big deal really since you'll be wearing layers under it but just looks funny (although overall they look really sweet). Also, while they have "full size zips," they dont go all the way up to the point that you can fully unzip them from the waist. So, you still have to pull your feet in and out from the waist area.

A few things I absolutely love are the huge deep pockets on the legs - they have a lot of volume, enough that you could stuff a liner glove, cell phone or wallet in there and not really notice. The gore-tex fabric is also burly and stands up to hard abuse and inclement weather. The waist zipper is also pretty easy to use to get the pants on & off.

I wasn't sure what size to get because they said this pant runs large. I'm a 5'7", 130 lb woman and decided to get a medium. This was a great choice because they're only slightly baggy when I'm wearing thin long underwear on underneath them - I can fully bend over without it bunching up on me - but, there is enough space that I've been able to wear long underwear and fleece pants under them for cold days (and then they fully expand into all the free space). Just wanted to throw this out there because I struggled with sizing. If you're in between a small and medium, get the medium.

What is the top half of the pants made of (above the waist)? It looks thin and stretchy in the photo, and not waterproof.

Best Answer Responded on

It is thin and stretchy and not waterproof. It's just the bib, they're assuming your jacket will go down below that line and waterproofing the bib won't be an issue.

so - let's say i'm very pear-shaped. ie. small waist, big hips / legs. are these pants are a good choice? they look quite big in the upper body

Best Answer Responded on

My girlfriend is put together in a like manner but probably a little more pear on top & these fit her great. They also have enough room in the lower legs for snowboard boots.

Responded on

I'm the complete opposite of pear-shaped, so these don't fit me.

I have no waist, my ribs are the same width all the way down, which makes the bib on these pants too small for me, even if i size up. But the rest of the fit is so great that i've considered getting them anyway, and just use them without the bib...

Favorite pants on the planet

Magenta purple is beyond dreamy. I'm super comfortable in a medium at 5'9" 150 lbs. The butt looks very cute when it is synched at the waist a little. Completely impervious to the wind, this shell impresses me like no other. The reinforcement around the ankles is totally heavy duty. And the pockets! Yay for those pockets!!

Worth every cent

Sweet design, light weight..but strong enough to rip through the trees without worrying! I just spent 5 days in the backcountry with these pants and love them- side zips vent perfectly, and the waist zips off for simple bathroom stops without having to remove ANY layers. I have been looking for a good bib set up and this is it. I only wish I could also get the jacket and perhpaps a second pair of pants in the event these ever wear out.. I don't think I will ever want another pant.

Pants to match jacket

I reviewed the womens jacket and rated them a 5. As for the pants I would go 5+. These pants are bomb proof and will handle anything you throw at them. I have the Arcteryx bibs and would def. get the Norrona over Arcteryx.

Foe my wife they run a little long in the leg, but with ski boots on its no big deal. They are wide enough for snowbaord boots.

To get the best from Norrona you need to buy the jacket and pants as the ski skirt can be zipped into the pants making it an all in one without that 80's style screaming "Old Skool"

If my Arcteryx ever gets stolen or tears (unlikely) I will def match my wife on the slopes with Norrona.

I am really interested in these pants...

I am really interested in these pants however not sure of the fit. It says they run small then someone left a comment that they actually run large. Being tall 5' 11" and somewhat thin I'm not sure what size to order. I also like a little bit of a baggy fit. Maybe I should order the men's. I just don^t want to spend that much money plus interenational shipping if they won't fit...

Best Answer Responded on

I just tried them on - I normally fit a medium, and I needed a S in this case. They are not very baggy, but not tightass either. Really cool fit, but I dont think It's a very good idear to buy the mens pants, the are quite big in the fit - dont think they'll be cool...

won't be making this long. So all in all these pants are rock solid. The seams are perfect, the fit is perfect, the color is perfect, the cut is perfect. I can not praise these pants enough. I feel as if I could quite happily take them to the moon and back. They're light and don't hinder your movement in anyway as will sometimes we with bibs.

These will get you through what ever you put them to. Rock solid, top notch product here and I recommend them to anyone looking for the cream of the crop.

Now I just need to get my hands on the Norrona Lofoten jacket!

Great pants

I haven't used them yet but have been happily wearing them around the house. They fit perfectly (I ordered a large even though I was at the high end of the sizing) and are well constructed and seem extremly durable. They are much better quality than either the MEC brand or Arcteryx bib style pants. I am looking forward to taking them out in some West Coast weather and will be ver suprised if I get enven a hint of wet. The bib is removable and extendable so you can pick your level of coverage. The colour is exactly what I was expecting, I only wish that I had ordered the jacket aas well.

best around

I tried Arcteryx bibs and Arcteryx Stingray pants. I found Lofoten superior. Finishings were the same at the naked eye, seams and zips look equally waterproof and neat. they are Gore-tex pro (stingrays are not); they feel really comfortable (bibs do not). They have the bottom leg in a very sturdy fabric (stingrays do not): this was important because my last pants were cut just above the boot. They are also cleverly designed because you can zip bib attachments on or off, and they can zip or not zip even to their jacket (similarly cleverly designed). Above all they look amazing (I bought the atoll color). in short, i was pretty sure i was going to buy stingrays, until i tried these on, then it was a clear choice. Arcteryx devotees present all agreed!
