Love this jacket
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I find it light but warm and easy to take on trips because it
packs into it's own pocket.
Great at first, but . . .
I am 5'6" and 120 lbs. I ordered the medium and it fit comfortably, a little big, but I plan on wearing things underneath, so it's perfect.
After a couple times of wearing the jacket (I wore it straight from the package) I noticed that I kept on getting lots of white fuzzy cotton balls all over myself.
Upon a close inspection I found that whatever was being used as the synthetic insulation was so fine that it was coming out of the fabric . . . and making an awful mess of my clothes whenever I wore the jacket.
Needless to say I am not happy about this. This jacket was supposed to be a good investment, instead I now need to return it and get a new jacket.

Hi, I have a question about sizing on this Norrona Lyngen jacket-
I am 5'8", 130lbs, long arms & torso, wondering what size would fit me best? Thanks for your help!
Burly all weather insulation
I pack this jacket for nearly everything I do.. from cragging to climbing Denali I use this jacket all the time. Super durable, comfortable, great warmth to weight ratio, and keeps you warm in the wettest conditions.
So cute and warm!
Have other Norrona products and love the norwegian quality and fit. This one did run a little smaller than other Norona jackets that I have, had to order a M instead of S that always fit well. The S fit more like a sweather whereas the M fit more like a jacket. It is perfect for spring and fall weather as well as under my shell for skiing in the winter. Very warm with low weight.
I am in love with this jacket. It is super soft, super flexible, lightweight, and surprisingly warm for how thin and light it is. It looks GREAT on me, much better than I expected a jacket from an "outdoor brand" to look. The color is fun (I got the fuschia) and the cut is very flattering. I am 5'10 and 135 lbs, and the small size fits me perfectly. I am hooked on Norrona!

I'm a senior citizen living near the Adirondacks. We get about 6 feet of snow each year. I need a WARM jacket to wear when I'm out with the snow thrower (takes me 1-2 hours) or walking my dog. I have poor circulation and get chilled more easily than most. Daytime temps often stay in the low twenties,and it's windy here. Does anyone know if this jacket that will keep an old lady warm for up to two hours? Does the zipper have a tiny pull on it, or is the pull large enough to grasp with gloves on? Thanks!
This is more of a light packable layer for backpacking. Serious warmth is going to come from a more substantial jacket, like the Mountain Hardwear Sub Zero, the Norrona Lyngen, the Marmot Slingshot, or the North Face Destiny. What I'd recommend more is a parka. They are more expensive, but the added length helps keep your lower half warm as well. The North Face Metropolis, the Mountain Hardwear Downtown Down, the Marmot Montreaux, the Patagonia Get Down, all of these will keep you super warm.
I knew I'd love it!
This jacket is just a cream-puff. I got the Festival Fuschia, with those eccentric yellow zippers, in size L. It is super soft and extra-flexible. Don't let this make you think it isn't very warm. You will be surprised how much warmth it holds in! I'm 5'10", long arms, and the sleeves fit me so well. If you like to enjoy refined, well-made to the detail products, GET IT!

anyone know the down fill on this? how about the length? I need something that comes down past the waist, like 28"?
Well. It's not down at all - synthetic Primaloft One insulation.
Torso length is 26.5" for size M. *To convert to other sizes, simply +/- 1" per size.
from their website (norrona.com)(there you can also see the more specific sizing):
The human body spends a lot of energy keeping its optimal temperature, especially under cold conditions. Primaloft®One is a patented icro-structure that gives great thermal insulation to help the body maintain its temperature, minimizing energy loss. Extremely light and soft, it was originally developed by the US Army to replace natural down. As down absorbs moisture, it becomes wet and loses its thermal-insulating abilities. Primaloft® One absorbs three times less water, is 14% warmer when dry and 24% warmer when wet, than the competitive insulation.
