Norrona's dedication to clean design and attention to detail comes through in its Women's Lyngen 750 Down Jacket. The lightest and most packable down jacket Norrona makes, the Lyngen is stuffed with 750-fill down from free-range birds raised in the Pyrenees, so you can feel good about its provenance even as you enjoy its premium quality. The jacket's stitch-through  construction prevents the down from shifting in the jacket over time, and an unexpected asymmetrical baffle just above the waist adds a fun twist on the traditional horizontal design.

The Lyngen also features a storm hood that wraps around your head with wonderful warmth, and the high collar is lined with soft fabric for no-chafe comfort. Its Packable Pocket lets you compress it down and clip it to your harness while you climb or stuff it in your backpack without sacrificing much space. The Power stretch arm cuffs simply seal out the cold without the need of bulky straps, and the handwarmer pockets are always available to keep your fingers nice and toasty while you walk across snowy streets. is Norrona's exclusive retailer in the US too, so you know where to go when you want to experience European luxury.

Great for broad shoulders and "chests"

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

My body shape is wide at the top "X" with a chest - size 8 top and 6 bottom. I tried several brands before discovering Norrona - in all other brands, even with a large, I can barely zip up at the chest and move my arms - AND I look 9-mths pregnant. In the Lyngen, I am a medium. That being said, since I am in Eastern Canada, the Lyngen by itself is not warm enough to downhill ski in -15F - common throughout January and February. Thus, I got a large Lyngen to layer it over the Norrona Alpha and I can ski all day - I bought complementing colors (Lyngen in magma with pink zippers and Alpha in crash pink with orange zippers) - though function trumps fashion, nice colors are a big bonus. (BTW: the Alpha is perfect for Spring skiing.) I love my Lyngen - it's light, warm, colorful, comfortable and the hood fits over my helmet. Caveats: 1) as with most down jackets, the outer fabric is delicate - I kept mine in new condition by putting it inside out when I took it off (body only not sleeves); 2) dark feathers show through light colors -- who is looking that closely anyway? ; 3)single zipper only - a double zipper would be ideal, not only to access pant pockets but also to attach my ski pass.

So sad it didn't fit me

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I so wanted to keep the jacket but decided to return it because of the poor fit on me. I am short (5'1"), medium built (125 lb 36B), top-heavy (size 8 for tops and 4/6 for bottoms). I first ordered a medium since my jackets are all medium (TNF, Patagonia, and Marmot). It was huge. So I exchanged it for a small which was still roomy especially around the chest. The issue was that my neck and arms are too short for this jacket. I love the look of the jacket on the model (and the pictures people posted here!), but I looked too disproportionate (boxy snowman-like top). My kids said I looked like I was wearing my husband's jacket! I ordered the black (caviar), which had a grayish tint to it. Maybe I should've ordered a brighter color? I don't know.

Besides the poor fit on me, I loved this jacket that it was so light yet warm, puffy and soft, long but not too long (covered my rear end completely). If I were going on an alpine adventure, I would've kept it but I just needed a warm everyday jacket in the city (wanted something light but warmer than Patagonia Down Sweater). So bummed!

Great Fit and gets the job done!

If you are on the fence with this jacket - I would say GO FOR IT!

I ordered to sizes as I thought it may run small - but it is SO true to size and its not super short like other brands! It covers your lower back and the sleeve length is perfect! It is so warm and the hood is a good fit. This is one of my ALL-time favorite buys from Backcountry and of course Im a huge Norrona Fan!!!!

BUY IT! You can't go wrong with any of these colors but I got the light blue!!

This jacket has saved me. I get cold easily, especially after the effort of climbing and whenever I am going above 2500m I bring this jacket. It keeps me warm, but also the comfort of being surrounded by the light hug of the high-quality down seems to help me with any altitude doubts. This coat is truly a great comfort and so easy and light to pack. I agree with previous reviews that you have to be careful with the delicate fabric.


Interior AK, close...

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

I wanted to love this jacket. It is lightweight and warm. The first flaw I noticed is that one of the baffles on the lower right hand side of my tummy was under filled, it was cold. Each time I walked, there was this strange cold sensation in the one panel area. I wore it on several different walks, two on ski trails and the rest around the neighborhood walking the dog in 0-9 degree weather. Just too cold (in the one spot). I WAS going to have it replaced.

Then flaw 2 happened, the zipper. I took the dog out and just as I closed the door, I heard the zipper at the bottom of the coat unzipping. The second time it happened I was slightly bending down to adjust my pant leg. (I am in no way a very big person and was surprised as I have coats a lot tighter than this and I have ripped across tundra without an incident). I sent it back.

I checked out a local store here in town and found the Cho Oyu Jacket from Mountain Equipment. It rocked my socks! I'll give that one a try. The fabric on this jacket seems less prone to ripping than the fragile Norrona. Wished that things would have worked.

Light and Warm

  • Fit: True to size

Purchased this puffy for my wife after trying on many others from North Face, GoLite, and Marmot. She is always cold in the winter and I wanted a great coat for winter fun activities. So far she loves it! For a large puffy the fit is very nice. I purchased XS, she is 5'7", 106 lbs. The coat fits very well.

Winter Hikers out there,

Hi all, trying to decide between this jacket and the Lofoten Gore-Tex for Winter Hiking in the White Mountains. Main concerns: warmth, portability and mobility in the arms. I tend to get cold really easy as i'm pretty thin. I am 5ft 7 and 116lbs. I am trying to decide between this and the Lofoten Gore-Tex insulated Jacket. Would the Gore-Tex be ok to backpack in? Would i be able to move my arms. Also weight wise. Backpackers know you want to keep your ounces down. Would this jacket breath better than the Gore Tex. Also i'm not in the budget to buy a down and a shell for it. Seems like the Gore-Tex would be a better investment. Like to know everyone's thoughts. I only have money for one or the other.

Thanks everyone!!! happy travels.

If you're not planning on buying a separate shell, the Lofoten Gore-Tex Insulated Jacket that you mentioned ( is probably going to be better bang for your buck, though not ideal for backpacking because the weight difference is significant (11.8 oz on this one vs 32 and change on the other jacket). This would be the better piece for backpacking, but the lack of waterproofing is a problem if you need it to be an all-around piece. The Gore shell with the Primaloft Sport insulation will breathe better than down would as a midlayer, especially since it's got pit zips for dumping heat.

Any idea on how much down fill is inside...

Any idea on how much down fill is inside this jacket? I'm looking for something warm for my sister in CO this winter and want to make sure the overall weight is due to down and not just features and fabric.

Best Answer

It says its 750 down, which is a pretty good amount and should be warm enough. For comparison, Patagonia and North Face both have 800 fill in their down jackets for women. I am frequently cold, but those jackets keep me nice and warm in the winter of Colorado.

Fill is a measure of the quality of down not the total amount. Basically it means how much space a given amount of down will occupy when pressed with a certain weight (simply the number of cubic inches one ounce of dry down occupies). Also europeans test more conservatively than americans, so 750 eu down is often comparable to 850 american down (I know, confusing!).

I'm actually looking for the fill weight, as in how much down is actually stuffed into this thing. Sweater weight jackets (patagonia UL down sweater) often have 3oz or less of down while expedition parkas (rab neutrino plus) will have 9oz or more. I want to know how much so I can roughly gauge the warmth of this jacket. Thanks though!

What is the center back length of this...

What is the center back length of this jacket?


Is there an weatherproof shell made...

Is there an weatherproof shell made specifically for this jacket by the same manufacturer?

There is not a specific shell made for this jacket. However Norrona does make high end shells that are fully waterproof. You can always wear this under one of their fine goretex shells and never have to worry about getting wet.

As of today all prices of new norrona gear...

As of today all prices of new norrona gear went up 10%, which now makes the norrona website cheaper and that is with with $20 shipping to u.s. and duties. WTF?

Hi Kara,

No scam going on (Norrona's site does not account for tax & duty so when you look at their site it's misleading)...just the unfortunate cost of getting this stuff into the US from Europe for our customers (we are the only US retailer you can get it from on the web or in a brick n' mortar).

Thanks for your question Kara & for your involvement in community!
