Description

Stay dry during backcountry tempests.

When you plan to spend a month living out of your pack in the backcountry, bring along the Norrøna Men’s Svalbard Dri3 Jacket to protect you when the inevitable storms roll through. The Svalbard Dri3 shell’s waterproof, recycled fabric not only breathes so you don’t sweat to death while exerting in rainy weather, it also keeps plastic out of the landfill for a little bit longer. Underarm zippers let air flow to your pits when you need to cool off, and reinforcement panels prevent backpack straps from abrading this jacket’s shoulders. Angled sleeve cuffs provide added coverage for your hands without impeding dexterity.

Great Shell!

This is an awesome jacket. I have only had good experience with Norrøna and their products. It does have a longer fit overall and does cover your butt about halfway so this may or may not be a draw/turn off for some. I did find that the sleeves were a bit bulky but that is just my experience. I have yet to have the durability issue of the cinches stated by vic. I would definitely recommend this jacket, especially if you can snap it on sale.

Good good jacket

This is my first Norrona jacket (and product) and I was positively delighted when I received the jacket. When on sale, it is definitely a steal. I'm 6'2, 180 and I got it in L. The fit is really good, the sleeves are perfect (finally a jacket with long sleeves) and the body length is really not too short. In L, I have plenty of room to add some extra layers and I think that for those being after a tighter fit, a size M would be even better.
After few days on the slopes, I can report that the windproofing as well as the waterproofing are excellent. You really feel bomber, despite Dri3 being lighter than the Gore-Tex competition (in three layers).
I have some concerns thought that the jacket won't hold up that well after several weeks of abuse: wearing a backpack, I noticed that the material was already weakened by frictions between the elastic cord at the waistline and the padding of the backpack.
I would say that the jacket is still a perfect choice, just that longevity will come with a bit of care. It is not a 3L Gore-Tex jacket so don't expect the same level of toughness.

Rad Jacket

Definitely diggin this jacket. I was a bit nervous about how thin the material was but it's proven to be pretty solid. I'm thinking that being so thin, it'll be an excellent option year round.

Love the cut. The sleeves are great for going over the gloves. I'm 6'1 170lbs and went with the XL. The length is great and works well for not having a powder skirt. Perfect for layering as well.

I've gotten a lot of compliments on the caviar with blue zippers. Adds a nice bit of flare without looking like a smurf.

Write your question here...hey, would this be a good ski jacket if you layered up underneath? seems pretty waterproof, if anyone would know itd be a great help

Responded on

I'm thinking the same thing. The other reviews basically signal a go, but I get the feeling it might be too thin.

Responded on

this is strictly a shell. it would be great for skiing you just need a good layering system underneath. its well made and the cloth is pretty robust so it won't be tearing or falling apart if you snag something.

Can this jacket be used for snowboarding?

Best Answer Responded on

Why wouldn't you be able to use it for snowboarding haha? But yes you can, Its a pretty light shell so layering is key. Got the Under Armour Amourloft jacket and this jacket and thats good to about 5 degrees, might put on another midweight sweatshirt if it was colder but the jacket its self provides no warmth and just blocks out the wind and rain which is all u need. Cant wait to use this in heavy snows in AK.

True to size

I must say that if you are a large then get large. these are not made to layer. they fit really well with a fleece. Over all great jackets get one and be happy with your buy.

I am 5'7'' 145 lbs and was wondering what size might be best. I understand that this jacket has a trimmer more european fit, would a medium be too large? Also, how would this compare to a gore tex paclite product, or a good 3 layer shell, could I wear this snowboarding or mountaineering in winter?

Hey I have been trying to decide between this Norrona and the Westcomb mirage jacket. Ive heard awesome things about eVent but not as much about this Dri3. I mainly hike and camp at around 4000 ft. in Blueridge mountains. Any suggestions?

Responded on

I have owned both Dri3 and eVent. I returned my event jacket because even though it is more breathable than gore-tex it really needs pit zips. I would go with dri3 because it seemed to stand up better to abuse then eVent for me. Also I would go with Norrona. This brand is incredible and I buy all of my stuff from them now. If you are looking for a a good wateproof shell that combines both form and function I would highly recomend this jacket. I have the green with red zippers and the color scheme is pretty sweet too.

Hello,

If a Large is ordered, will Backcountry.com automatically ship a European XL?

I'm 6'3 180lbs, and I'm looking for an athletic fit... any recomendations?

Also, I'm planning on using this jacket for alpine touring... Will the dri 3 fabric hold up? Would you say that the dri3 is similar in weight to the Gore-tex Paclite material?

Any input would be appreciated...

Thanks,

Best Answer Responded on

I am 6'3 1/2", 184 lbs and wear 42L suit jacket. I bought size large last year and fit is excellent. Can wear it alone or with one or two layers. I have a mountain hardwear with goretex paclite and Dri3 is much stronger and warmer, maybe good for temps 20 degrees colder than paclite. It is more like two or three layer goretex. I wore this all last year skiing and boarding at 9000ft, 5-20 degree temp, and high winds and felt bullet proof. I have a high metabolism and tend to run hot, and i was amazed at how well this vents moisture.

I should also mention the fit. While not technically athletic, it is cut for tall and fit northern european types. American jackets in this size are cut for 46" chest including athletic cuts like arcterx and this one is cut for 42".

Awesome Jacket!

I was not too sure what I was buying, I will be honest went into ordering it blind. Never heard of Norrona before, did not know how good the product would be. Let me tell you, right after opening the plastic I fell in love with the jacket. Surprisingly I wore it the second day after buying it because it was raining up on campus. It did everything it was supposed to! I really like the slim fit (athletic) fit of the jacket. I ordered the Caviar and the colors look awesome, got tons of compliments on it and I have only had it for three days! Sick jacket for use anywhere where it is going to rain, even just as a normal shell. Norrona has gained my respect!
