layering piece; too porous to wear alone

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I love the quality of construction; I own many Norrona Narvik warm 3 jackets. (The Narvik is your typical 300 Polartec jacket, plush and dense.)
This Roldal is very porous in the weave and the fleece is not dense at all; you can see light through it.
There is fleece on the interior and the exterior is the "wrong side" of the fabric.
This would be a decent layering piece but lets through even the lightest wind if one wears it alone.

Pure awesomeness...

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

With the exception of a few Euro idiosyncrasies (left hand zipper) - absolutely the best mid weight fleece product... so much so that I would rate it over Patagonia R3. Highly recommended for everyday and travel use.

Very warm

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size

Norrona grades their fleeces according to their weight with the terms Warm1 to Warm4 in the product name, Warm4 being the warmest.

This is Warm3 and it is seriously warm. The fleece weight is, as the tech specs show, 300. This is going to be too warm in many situations. In fact, I'm taking advantage of winter clothing going on sale right now and haven't yet had a chance to test it fully. But the quality is usual Norrona. The fit is great, nice and firm (athletic), love the deep purple color (quite unusual) and the contrast stitching. The Polartec Thermal Pro material is not the smoothest of materials but it does the job. Nice hidden hand pockets with zippers, and a napoleon pocket. The thumb holes in the sleeves are well done. Pocket zippers are coil zippers, the main zipper is metal. There's a chin guard as well.

Overall a great piece, just know that it's for cold weather. It's going to be too warm to wear inside.

I wanted to add this to my review but I don't see how to do it. Anyway, one thing I've noticed with this fleece after having is used it a bit is that the fleece easily picks up things that sticks to it. For example I was using it under a down jacket and previously I've never noticed down leaking much from the jacket but with this fleece all the leaking down stuck to it so it was quite noticeable. Not a deal breaker but the surface is not smooth like a Patagonia R1 (which is not comparable to this fleece as it's much thinner) so things do get stuck to it.

Love the cut

I own this one and the warm 4. I really love the fit for both of these. the warm 3 is not nearly as soft to the touch, but has lots of very large pockets (interior and exterior). Love the wrist gators. they both have low backs. this one breathes super well, but wind cuts right through it (any wind). though this layer never claims to be wind proof.

Hi, your review is quite helpful! Could you tell me will the hi-loft of warm3 make it seems to be warmer than the warm4? And, actually compare these two products, which one do you prefer and why? I am now trying to choose between them, and really puzzled. You answer will help me a lot. Thanks.

This will keep you plenty warm in the low temperatures all winter long. When I first wore it, I forgot to take it off when I got inside and then realized I wasn't getting to warm even though I was still wearing this really warm fleece. It definitely regulates your body temperature to keep you at the right temp all day long. I bought it as a mid-layer for snowboarding, but works perfectly well in the cold as long as there isn't wind.

It is a tiny bit of a slim/athletic fit, probably more than most, but i wanted something like that so it fits me great (me 6'2", 205lb, 38" chest, 34" waist).

My only gripe is the hood - while I'm glad it comes with one, it's rather large, almost enough for a helmet. I can't really complain since I do like it, but since it doesn't have any way to tighten for a better fit, I'm a little torn on it. It also comes with thumb holes in the sleeves, which are a nice little addition.

This is my first Narrona purchase, and I am definitely impressed. I looked for a long time before purchasing a mid-layer, and I'm so glad I chose this one. I get plenty of compliments wearing this out around town or in the house.

Norr?na R?ldal Warm3 Fleece

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This fleece excels within its intended application - ample insulation under a shell be it an event/goretex hardshell, a softshell with a windstopper membrane or a cheap windshirt. This fleece was never made to stop wind. In fact, wind will go right throught it. However, wear it over a baselayer and under a windstopping layer, and you will survive the hostile conditions of freezing temperature and wind. The hood easily fits over a helmet. It is refreshing to see a hooded fleece that extends well below the tailbone. The stitching, zippers, embroidery, and thumbholes are executed to the level of perfection. Is it pricey? You bet! But if you'd like something above the typical excellence of Arc'teryx or Patagonia - this is it!

Warm, maybe too warm?

    I think this jacket is bomb. So freakin' warm probably the only layer you will need down to low teens. Too warm to wear in the 20's for me anyways. This jacket keeps the heat in, recirculating your body heat over and over again. I am a hot body and have a slightly high core temp; so everyone is a little different. The quality of this jacket is unparalleled to none (Just like every single article of clothing Norrona makes). Now, don't get me wrong, I was on Arc'teryx jock for a long time and you could definitely call me a repeat customer, but If you have not noticed, Arc'teryx fit and design has changed over the past 5 years. Since moving their manufacturing to China, their sizing system has really tanked because I use to fit into a medium top in everything they had to offer, but since around 2007-08 I am literally swimming in their mediums; which fit like a large or XL. The cuts are always sooo awkward an inefficient. I have enough extra material in the arm pits to make another jacket. Norrona, cuts all of this BS out of the equatioin. Their quality is the best, their design is patterned for a true athlete; form fitting and molding to the body and allowing flexibility for dynamic movement such as: swinging ice tools overhead,making big moves, or just running ropes on the wall. Don't get me wrong, I understand what Arc'teryx is attempting to do in their design, but they fall flat as their jackets are too baggy in the wrong places and you end up with much more material to get caught up with. If you care about efficiency, design, quality and functionality, you will sell all of your Arc'teryx gear and jump on the Norrona bandwagon. And lets be honest about pricing, if you can afford Arc'teryx you can damn sure afford Norrona. Some keys I like about this item. I like the cuffs on the sleeves. The chest pocket is convenient and the cut is pretty sleek. I am 5'10 160 and I wear mediums in all of Norrona's tops including this jacket.

    For Alpine Trekking - would anyone recommend this Rodal Warm3 Fleece or the Narvik Warm2 Stretch Zip Hooded Fleece? I have a Patagonia R3 high loft and wondered how these compare? thanks!

    I have this fleece but haven't tried the Narvik Warm2.

    The Rodal is quite heavy as you can see from the weight in the specs. The Narvik is just below a pound. The fleece weight of the Narvik is around 200 and uses a stretchy fleece.

    I haven't tried alpine trekking with my Rodal. All I can say is that it's heavy and quite warm and doesn't have the kind of stretch that the Narvik has.

    Does this fleece "pill" up over time?
