Description

Insulated and waterproof for chilly, wet days at the resort.

Norrona's philosophy to make clean, sleek, minimal products with all the critical details shows in its Men's Roldal Gore-Tex Insulated Jacket. Backcountry.com is the exclusive US retailer for Norrona products too, so you can hit up St. Anton in Austria, Stowe in Vermont, or Tahoe in California and not see your jacket-twin everywhere. The Roldal's Gore-Tex shell gives this jacket guaranteed waterproof protection that remains breathable so you stay dry in bad weather and comfortable when there's nothing but a sunny sky overhead. Norrona also stuffed this jacket with soft and supple PrimaLoft Infinity insulation that warms you up while remaining incredibly light and compressible.

An athletic fit pulls the Roldal close to your body without restricting the movement you need for mogul runs and skate-skiing across the flats, and a longer cut gives you move coverage. The powder skirt blocks snow when you're floating through waist-deep fluff, and you can remove it when you don't need it. Underarm venting lets out some steam when you work up a sweat, and its mesh lining prevents any snow from slipping in when you have the zippers open. The hood can slide over your helmet or cinch tightly across your head to protect you from snowy conditions. Inner hand gaiters with thumbholes keep you hands warm as well as keep the sleeves in place.

Very happy with purchase

The Jacket is true to fit. I purchased an XL and it's just right for my 6'1" 215lb frame. It is a longer jacket and is better suited for a taller person. Looking forward to using it here in the north east. Can't speak to how warm it is but it feels like it's gonna do nicely. Hope this was helpful...

I'm 6'0", 160 pounds with a slim build. I like my jackets to fit trim, not baggy. What size would you suggest in this jacket?

Responded on

Height and weight are unfortunately very poor indicators as to how a jacket would fit. It's very possible that you could have an apple bottom on top of stilts and we end up putting you in a jacket that is WAY too big. Norrona provides a very detailed size chart with their products, I suggest focusing on your chest and sleeve measurements and comparing them against the size chart just above the Add To Cart button. If you have any further questions please chat in or give us a call and one of our Gearheads will be happy to help you out.

great jacket, too warm...

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

Primary use was meant to be skiing (backcountry downhill, occasionally some short skinning/hiking ascents). Turns out that the jacket is super robust, probably one of the firmest clothes (gore tex) i ever encountered.

Holds out literally everything, rain/hail/snow/you name it. At the sime time i do not see the advantage of a insulated gore tex jacket, since wearing a backpack at most of the time skiing the garments get compressed and sweat/moist gets collected in the jackets liner at my back. fortunately there is no reason to get cold; it breathes, on the other hand: you will just sweat more than it can let out.

Under all conditions i just wear a thin merino t shirt (1 layer!) underneath. Since i also got the matching pants, there is nothing except a boxer short and a t shirt and this combo.

Works acceptable (hot) in january, is unsuitable for spring.

Having said this, in the meantime i bought me a gore tex pro shell pant and jacket (trollveggen) for multipurpose and more active "duty". This roldal jacket is by far the most super tough jacket i ever had, fits extremely well in XL at 6'5", but generally too hot. I got me one of these lynx furs from norrona in house and wear the jacket most of the time around the city nowadays (which is why i gave it a 3 star rating instead of 2).
I bought it November 2012 and used it 100+ ever since...

I tend to agree with you. I have the same set in black. Used it once in the Alps on a -8C day. Was way too warm. This set is to be used on VERY cold days with strong wind chill factor.
Also keep in mind if flying - it does take some space in your luggage. All in all - great set that will take any abuse you want to give it. True to size

When do you get the Norrona Roldal Gore-Tex...

When do you get the Norrona Roldal Gore-Tex Insulated Jacket Caviar in XL back in stock?

Responded on

I would probably check back around the end of September to middle of October as we start getting in a lot of our winter stock.

how packable is this jacket?

Not especially. It's a fairly heavy-duty fabric, and synthetic insulation doesn't really compress well. You can still roll it up, but it won't really compress like down.

Fantastic backcountry ski jacket

  • Gender: Male

I had last year's model of the R?ldal and this year's model fixed last year's issues while keeping all of its good qualities.
The things I love about this jacket are the cut, the light but warm insulation, the face fabric, and the overall style. I primarily wear this jacket skiing, and it is absolutely brilliant! I have been on slopes in windy, cold conditions (-12 deg C), as well as more mild conditions (0 deg C) and in both cases I was so happy to have this jacket.
Prior to owning this jacket, I went with a hard shell, mid-layer combo, but I love this jacket so much more. The insulation allows me to wear just a baselayer on warmer days, and on colder days add a mid-layer. The length and hood with high collar provide wonderful protection in the wind, while pit zips make it possible to dump excess heat. Pretty much anything I could think of, this jacket has: fleece-lined pockets, goggle wipe, key card pocket, powder skirt, fleece chin guard, helmet-compatible hood, drawstring hem, hand gators, long length (I'm tall), long sleeves (I'm tall)...I honestly can't think of a thing I don't like.

I don't say this lightly, but this jacket is pretty much perfect. And tasty red (pretty close to orange) is a requirement for people who spend any time in the backcountry, in my opinion.

This is one snazzy looking jacket (not that any of us hardcore outdoor-type people care about such things). Seriously though, look at how cool beardy looks!

Not bad...but.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I like the jacket. However, the long cut was a little funny. I guess I prefer a slimmer cut. On the other hand, a well constructed jacket with all bells and whistles money can buy.

Great ski jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought two of these because I liked the polar night and the tasty red. Obviously, I also had too much disposable cash. I'm 5'11 and 185 pounds and the jacket in large fits great with some room. The sleeves are a little long but the velcro closures take care of that. Loved the built in hand gaiters. the material is heavy weight enough to take on any tree that will try to grab you. I have skiied in this coat three times so far in different conditions; blowing snow and cold, cold (14 f), and warmer (32 f), and it was comfortable in each circumstance. The open armpit vents work great for the warmer weather and when closed it keeps you warm in the colder conditions. The hood fits comfortably over my helmet, and there are many pockets for storage. Expensive, but I'm worth it.

Excellent winter jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this jacket as a winter jacket, for higher temperatures than my 3 down jackets. I initially planned to buy the /29 parka, but found that this jacket would be more versitile temperature vise (as it is less insulated, and the /29 parka is as warm as a down jacket), and the hood on this jacket is much better than the one on the /29. It also has armpits vents, which I really favour.
The jacket looks great in caviar, like a regular winter coat. The GTX fabric keeps you dry, and the hood fits well. I also bought the fur that can be attached to the hood with welcro, just love that one. The jacket is not bulky, like a Canada Goose, and the light insulation makes it best suited for -10 to +10 deg C (14-50 deg F). The fit is more relaxed than Lofoten or some other Norr?na jackets, and that is nice for the purpose I bought it for. I normally wear XXL or XL in Norr?na, and bought this in XL. It is on the large side, with very long arms. Consider sizing down on this jacket. Highly recomended as a everyday jacket around town, but I'd prefer the lofoten shell when going skiing. I will add a photo of the hood with the fur later.

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?

Responded on

Hi Kara,

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!

Cheers,
