The Norrøna Narvik Long Glove is at the cutting edge of alpine hand protection.

- Q & A
Color and Size
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
I bought these gloves (size XL, Jungle Fever) and received them yesterday. First, the color on the website is much lighter and lime-green color, than the actual. The gloves are the same as the "Norrona / 29 Logo Beanie" also on this website described as Chrome Green. It looks good, just different than what I expected.
Second, the sizing runs a bit small. I measured my hand length (palm to tip of middle) at just below 8 inches. Therefore, I should of gotten the large, but the XL fit snugly.
Hope this helps.

Haven't used it yet
But the Nordic Sea color is almost a teal color in real life. I wish they made this one with Gore-Tex and maybe a tad more insulation... it feels too light to keep me warm, but I'll give it a run and post any updates.
Where's the short version?
So far I like them, I go through gloves fairly fast so we'll see how they handle. Green stiching is a tiny bit off, just like the stiching inside my flex 3 jacket. You can tell where the excess fabric wasn't cut perfectly.
Not a bad pair of gloves so far only used in 15-25 degree days. Really like the wrist cuff thing for when you take them off. I am not a fan of the gauntlet long style.
Backcountry when will you carry the short version?
