SMART ARMOR INDEED!
Very useful all around jacket! Great unisex fit. I am 5'11" 160lbs girl and medium fits really great.
Nice and light jacket
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I use this jacket with a "underjacket" and I'm allmost too warm even at temps down to -15F.
The powder works great. Overall a good jacket for many uses, skiing, hiking, just as a windbreaker.
I'm 5'10" and 185 and like how the XL fit me.
Good, not great; Tall skinny guys rejoic
The fit is tall and slim. I'm 6'2" and 185 with 36" length sleeves. The jacket fits great.Hand gators are super. All jackets should have them. Pockets are good,but they could use more, so if your ski pants have pockets, you will probably need to use them.
For such a nice jacket, the weakpoint are the zippers. The teeth are small and the drag on the pull is tight. Further, after about 4 weeks of use, one of the side pockets zips broke off, mostlikely from wear against a back pack strap. Luckily it is a double zipper. Still I sent it back to Backcounty and they kindly honored the return.
So would i buy another? Yes. Its warm, comfortable and works as advertized.
Well, the good: Great fit, not baggy, not too trim for layering, slightly longer in the waist, great durable fabric feel, easy to use vents.
The best: the wrist gaiters, absolutely fool-proof way to keep snow from getting into your gloves or up your sleeves.
The meh: the "soft-shell" gore-tex is not much warmer than than a proshell and is not as windproof. All indications point to really good breathing though.
The bad: the pockets: the hand/breast pockets are only accessible when the vents are open, so with the vents closed you have two zippers to go through to get to the contents... Also, no, stash pockets, never realized how much I enjoyed those little mesh pockets that are so handy for holding a hat or gloves until they no longer existed. The sleeve pass/radio pocket is fine, but not big enough for most radios, they do include a credit card sized elastic pocket for your pass within the pocket which is a nice thought.

love the unique jacket and unique blue- its not bright but muted, and reflects well in the snow- then the bright red zippers does the trick to balance off. the cut is great, smart and fitting... for those who dont like the baggy style. Its workmanship is excellent too. given the 30% discount... i thot its a good buy. in my view, its not inferior to the very very top brands.

I get out skiing about 2x a week, all conditions. They call this a "soft"-shell but it doesn't feel "soft", over easy or medium hard, might be more like it. Appreciate the thoughtful features - fleece collar, hand gator, large cuffs that cinch easily over gloves, hood fits perfect over helmet, comfy form fit over the right base layers. Very satisfied with my purchase. I feel indestructible when I am rockin the Narvik!
Serves resort skiing/boarding well
5'11" 165lbs 33inch waist 39-40" chest and 35" sleeve length in a dress shirt. Bought a Large. Have owned the Norrona Falketind in a large. Bought sent back a Lofoten Active Shell in a Large. The Cut of this jacket is longer than the Falketind or Lofoten Pro with a bit of a drop tail. its just the perfect cut without being boxy like the ultra thin but very nice Falketind. So much nicer than the Active shell. A large in the Active shell looked like a hefty trash bag on me and the zipper is funky, especially left partly unzipped up by the neck.
im thinking of being one of these jackets...
im thinking of being one of these jackets - i'm 183cm and 75kg - is medium the best fit?
Unbelievable attention to detail

This was my first experience with Norrona and I hope it won't be the last. We'll see how my bank account holds up. Super jacket and the Gore softshell fabric has a substantial but soft feel that makes you want to wear it all the time. The fit is trimmer through the arms and body than most US brands. I am 5'10" 175 and wear a Large, which fits comfortably with good range of motion for skiing, skinning, and hiking. The features of this jacket are amazing. Anatomical multi-panel sleeves with curved seams, curved cuffs with some sort of soft Velcro (never seen it anywhere else), welded laser-cut wrist gaiters, superfine stretch mesh vents...I mean, the powder skirt alone must use 5 different fabrics. The chest pocket even has a quick-clip microfiber goggle wipe on an elastic cord. Norrona clearly pays attention to the little things. I've used this jacket for two seasons with 45+ days on the mountain, and never been happier with a piece of outerwear. The brushed lining also makes it warmer than a plain shell, which means I need fewer layers underneath. I'd complain about the price, except for the fact that I haven't found anything that equals it in quality.
Durability does not match price
I have owned this jacket for one year and there are already holes in the shell. Backcountry has been no help and told me to contact Norrona. Norrona refuses to pay for the repair of the jacket and attributes these holes use.
Its a ski jacket and should be designed to hold up under skiing use for more than one season priced close to $500 retail.
I'll be taking my business to another retailer and outerwear company who support their customers and products and so should you.
I have this jacket as my main ski coat. Im 6'3" and 220 lbs the XL fits well and the sleeves are just right. The cut is longer and the bottom of the jacket covers my ass well:)
The vent pockets on the torso hide 2 hand pockets while also opening a mesh screen for venting. Not everybody will like this.
the collar rides very high which I like as my neck is a cold point for me, it also has anti scratch chin lining.
The wrist gaiters are the best, I use this jacket for photography and you would be surprised how well those gaiters keep my hands a little extra warm when my gloves are off, talking of which, the cuffs are overly ample to get over gloves.
The exterior material is soft shell like and doesn't stiffen in cold temp.
The Powder skirt is the most secure i have used and combines with Norrona pants as well.
I'm 174cm and around 75 Kg, chest 100,...
I'm 174cm and around 75 Kg, chest 100, waist 88, seat 95.
I check Norrona's size-table, and my size between S and M, but close M, but and think about ordering
one in S.
Will especially the arms be too short in S?
If I will have thick fleece under the jacket, how mach stretched it?
I am 180cm and about 84kg. I use an L size and it fits fine. I would recommend an M size in your case especialy since you need room for a fleece mid layer. I think that size S will be small.
