Initial impressions

I just got this yesterday and had the opportunity to take it backcountry skiing early this morning. First of all I have to say, for a soft shell wind protector this jacket is tops. The jacket itself is essentially wind proof and believe me on the ridge heading up Mt. Bierstadt this morning, that is exactly what I needed while skinning. The jacket is so flexible it is what you want for dynamic fast paced movement. The flexibility articulates well at the elbow and is not encompassing at all. The hood may be big enough to accommodate a helmet if need be, but I can not be sure because I never tried. Storage is pretty dope, because you have a zippered napoleon pocket on the left breast, 2 zippered hand pockets and the big bonus is you have two interior pockets to drop gear in on the inside of the jacket hidden behind the hand pockets. The jackets insulation is pretty nice with the inside lined with fleece. as far as fit goes, I was able to get a couple of layers underneath (lofoten warm1 fleece and a traditional base layer) and still feel comfortable without movement being inhibited. The fit on this one is athletic so it runs slimmer in the arms than a traditional jacket and the chest has more of a formed fit. I usually wear a medium in jackets for most brands (excluding Arcteryx). I am 5'10" about 160 lbs and purchased this in a medium. I would say this jacket fits me perfectly. I would suggest going with your average fit. On an economic note. I picked up this one in Too Blu/Polar Night from the outlet at more than $100 off MSRP. I might have bought the last Medium, but if you can fit a S L or Xl this is an amazing buy. I hope this info helps.

Good Utility Jacket

This jacket I feel is more wind oriented with some water resistance. Warmth-wise, it's not terrible, but not super warm. It's very good at cutting out wind, and does resist light amounts of water, but it really does not insulate heat as well as I expected. It claims it is at a Warm2 rating, but my Warm1 fleece is probably warmer than this. I suspect it is because this uses Polartec Wind Pro, whereas my fleece uses Polartec Thermal Pro. The Wind Pro does it's job of beating the wind, and only a moderately decent job at keeping insulation. The Thermal Pro is the opposite. Overall, don't trust the Warm2 rating necessarily, but it is still an excellent light Flex Fleece jacket that I like that is suitable still for most general outdoor adventures. I used it on hikes, climbs, camping trips, and evens ski trips with extra layers underneath. Plus it's a cool looking and feeling jacket for casual use around the town.

Amazing in the Alpine or around town.

I wear this fleece nearly everyday in the mountains. I work as an IFMGA Guide in Lofoten, Norway all winter and this fleece is on me nearly everyday. Perfect cut for a slim fit person and arm are nice and long so I get great coverage in the wrists. Hood rocks and love the full zipper for venting if I start to get to warm. I'm 6'2 180 Lbs and this fits me perfect.

Smaller than I thought

  • Fit:Runs small

Have a Lofoten Goretex in a Medium, and that was too big. The Lyngen, in a Medium is a bit too tight. Else like the material (and color), though I haven't put it through the wringer yet. My wife cannot believe that it will keep me warm ... (just got it this summer)

What your height to weight ratio? The lofted is a completely different cut than this jacket. This is supposed to be a athletic cut and fit snugly, where the Lofoten is meant for layering. If you fall on the in between then these sizes might not be the perfect fit, but it is tough for any manufacturer to design around all the somatotypes and in between. Any ways If you give me your dimensions I might be able to give you a point in the right direction.

Warm2Flex blue color pattern

Nice trim fit, long sleeves and body. Got an XL and I'm 6'5" 195lbs. Jacket breathes well, not really that 'hard face' but Wind Pro fabric is great for an active cool weather piece. Pricey but the cut is superior to the common brands where the XLs are more baggy and short sleeved.

Great and mostly windproof fleece

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I bought this to replace a softshell that lost a battle with a tree and tore badly. This is very breathable, surprisingly warm and is about 90% windproof. With a harder face it will also be a go to piece for Rock Climbing and other activities that are generally hard on clothing.

Unanswered Question

Planning on a trip to Peru - Cordillera Blancas region in July. Would a Warm2 vs Warm3 be better than my Patagonia R3 I used in Nepal last Oct or a Mammut lighter-down jacket? I love the Norrona products and have some of the gortex jackets.
