Norrona's softest jacket for freestyling the resort.
Stand out amongst the hordes of park boarders in the colorful Norrona Men's Narvik Gore-Tex 2L Performance Shell Jacket. Its fully taped, two-layer Gore-Tex membrane gives this jacket guaranteed waterproof protection that keeps you dry when you eat crud, and it remains highly breathable so you stay comfortable when you hike up the park all day. Norrona made the shell out of recycled nylon to minimize Norrona's footprint on the environment. And, because backcountry.com is Norrona's exclusive retailer in the US, you won't find a bunch of jacket-twins on the jumps or in the trees.
A baggy fit leaves plenty of room in the Narvik for you to layer up on frigid days without restricting the movement you need to hit the halfpipe. This jacket features X-open ventilation underarm zippers that release steam when you work up a sweat, and mesh linings prevent any snow from seeping in while you have the zippers open. The powder skirt snaps to complementary pants so you can shred the pow and stay completely dry. Its hood slides over your helmet or cinches across your head with a simple one-handed adjustment, and its wire brim keeps the hood out of sight while you ski. Water-resistant zippers protect you in ways that most jackets don't, and the adjustable cuffs have wrist gaiters with thumbholes for extra comfort.

- Fit: True to size
I received my jacket yesterday and I have to say, I am quite impressed. The quality is top notch and it looks sweet! I received a few compliments up at Snowbird today and it was nice to be wearing something that not everyone has. In Utah that is hard to do. I'm 6'1" 170lbs and I ordered the medium as I am not one of the park bros at Brighton hittin boxes and bowls and I don't like my gear to fit super baggy. It fits well and with enough room to layer when it gets really cold. The jacket itself is actually warmer than I thought it would be. Must be the liner that makes the difference. I put my sleeve under my kitchen faucet and the water just ran right off so I'm pretty sure that I'll stay dry even when it storms bad. I'll write some more after I've got 20-30 days in to see how durable it is.

Top quality but really, really long

I received my jacket today but I'm sending it back. The cut is really long. I'm 5'8" and 165 lbs and the hem goes probably about 4" above my knee and a few past my inseam. I normally wear a medium because I like my jackets loose so I can layer under them. Cut is just right around my chest so I don't think I could get a small as it would be too tight. Material is top notch and the liner is perfect to add some warmth to just a plain shell so you won't have to layer as much. The interior pocket has room for a iphone/etc but some of the larger phones might not fit well. There is no cable management or hole to thread your head phone jack through so you can't zip the interior pocket all the way up if you plug in some headphones. Bummer, but not a deal breaker for me. The powder skirt doesn't zip out and if left undone it cinches around the waist to make it feel fitted which was kind of weird as it pulled the jacket in close to the body. I didn't have the same effect when it was stretch around the waist and snapped in place. So, to me, it wouldn't work well as a jacket off the slopes. You have to be on the tall thinner side for the cut to work for you. Finally, I got the tasty read and it is much brighter than the pics on backcountry.com. More like a bright chilipepper red IMHO. Great jacket just not the right cut for me. Definitely a high quality jacket for the price if you can get on sale like I did. Full price...not so sure.

Heres a pic of the bluegrass coat, I think it shows the color a bit better. The blue is more teal once you see it in person.
