This fleece is super warm and slim cut like other reviewers have said. With that being said, I'm 5'5" 125lbs and I actually ordered a Large. I sized up based on other reviewers and I'm happy I did. I can layer underneath this jacket and also still wear this underneath a shell without it being too bulky. I can agree that if you are tall, the torso might be short, but for me, it's the perfect length. The arms weren't too long on me either. Love the high funnel neck and the hood is super warm when up. Overall a great product.

Really like this fleece. Quality is super good. Extremely warm. Sleeves are slim, though. I can't wear this over a thick sweater; just something thin. But that's fine. One big beef: the sleeves are tooooo long! I bought the small and my arms are proportionate to my height/size. The sleeves bunch up like the Michelin tire man. They're truly about 6" too long. My hands would have to be at my mid-thighs for these sleeves to make sense. But this jacket is worth altering because it's the best fleece I've worn. Only other issue: I thought I was buying some great Norwegian brand of gear and it's made in China. Felt a little misled.

I love everything about this fleece but the torso length. I hate the cold drafts up my lower back, when I bend over to put my ski boots on or take them off. I am pretty tall (5'11") and came up with a solution that tall girls often resort to: men's version. It is much longer in torso, has a slim fit, and ends up looking way better than this one on me. I know it is hard to believe, but is worth trying, if you have the same problem as I have. It should perform beautifully, if you are 5'7" or less i suppose or if you like your jackets really short.
more colors, please?
These are the only colors Norrona came up with this season. Maybe they'll have more choices next year.

Haven't taken this off since I got it in the mail. The fleece is super dense, but softer than any other fleeces I've ever had. Long enough for my tall torso and long arms and has a really nice feminine cut (5"8, 130 lbs, small fits PERFECTLY). I bought the magnetic color and found that it's got a slightly more purple/wine tone rather than the fuchsia hues that the picture shows, but I still love it (it could just be my computer!). It also has a nice high collar, which I love, and the hood is cozy and not bulky. This is much warmer than TNF Denali and looks a lot nicer on!
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?
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!
the color of zipper is not blue as in the picture. it is just black. so, the whole look is a bit dull. except that, I am fine with the quality and design.
This is the warmest fleece I have ever worn. PERIOD.
I often find that it is actually too warm for all but 32 or below days.
The quality of this jacket is amazing and I am pretty thrilled save this one issue which is somewhat of a deal breaker for me. The inner lining underneath the zipper is CONSTANTLY getting caught in the zipper when I try to zip or unzip this jacket. I think they may have made the zipper lining too long, as it is always getting stuck and I find myself embroiled in an epic battle to extract myself from the jacket. I thought about cutting the lining down, so it isn't always falling victim to the zipper, but I think I will contact Norrona before I do that.
I am have been searching for my one warm layer for travelling the world for a while now. I am extremely picky and spent hours researching fleeces. After trying on the TNF Denali, MH monkey man, and Patagonia R3, this is by far my favorite. It is super soft and cozy, thick, and has a nice cut to it. It is still high-loft but seems more dense than the other fleeces. It is fitted through the torso and has long-ish arms but it still works fine for me. Really nice jacket. I had never heard of Norrona before this but I am glad I tried their gear.
I have this in the current season style in black and really appreciate the warmth and fit. The sleeves are on the long side and the fleece is a 300 weight Polartec. The hood is a functional design with a funnel neck when zipped up. The overall fit of this jacket is long and lean.
I bought this jacket in morning pink, size small. It's a slim cut jacket but covers my torso (I'm 5'10) and has more than enough arm length. One of the great aspects of Norrona is their colors coordinate and since I'm a layer person, I wear a lighter weight Norrona jacket - Narvik Warm2 Stretch jacket underneath in birch green. The color of the zipper (birch green) in the Warm 3 Fleece matches the overall color of the other jacket underneath. But, better than the colors are 2 things: the fit (a slim European cut); and the warmth.
Just got the dark purple jacket yesterday late afternoon and I love it already. Since it's made of Polartec fleece, it's super soft and cozy (just like those fuzzy fleece Bershire blankets). The hand gaiters help keep your sleeves from bunching up and protect the cold from "climbing" up your arm. What the photo doesn't show is that the two large chest pockets extend to about 4-5 inches from the bottom. You can kind of use the pockets like a kangaroo pocket or just store stuff in there. As for the hood, it's fitted to my head which is great.
I wasn't crazy about this fleece. The color is lighter than on the website, so it read as a bubblegum pink rather than a nice rich pink. The fit was weird for me. The shoulders fit but the arms were very long and the end of the cuff flares out rather than being tight around your wrist. I am returning this item.
Bought this hooded fleece in purple/pink to wear underneat my Norona 2L jacket. The cut fits nicely and the colors are great.
I am 5.8/130lbs and bought a small which fits perfectly well. Great purchase!!
I am tall and skinny, and have serious trouble finding clothing that fits my long monkey arms, and is long enough through the body without also being really wide and baggy. Can anyone tell me how long the torso is on this jacket? Have any other fellow monkey-armed people tried this out successfully?
