Description

Norrona's warmest down jacket.

Wear the Norrona Men's Trollveggen Down 750 Jacket for frigid days on the mountain. Developed primarily for ice-cold bivouacs during challenging climbs and other high-mountain activities, this jacket utilizes an Aero down-proof shell that's soft and breathable yet water-repellent and wind-resistant. Made with recycled polyester, this shell meets Norrona's standards of minimizing its footprint on the environment we all love to play on. This jacket uses some of the loftiest 750-fill down insulation around to keep you nice and toasty at belay stances, and Norrona also covered critical areas with synthetic PrimaLoft Infinity insulation to eliminate any cold spots.

The Trollveggen also features a storm hood that slides over your helmet or cinches across your head with a simple, one-handed adjustment, and it has a wire brim to keep the hood out of sight while you belay your partner. Its Packable pocket allows you to compress this jacket and clip it to your harness if the day warms up. Elasticized cuffs seal across your wrists to keep the sleeves off your hands and seal out any cold drafts. Because backcountry.com is the exclusive US retailer for Norrona products, you won't see too many people on the mountain sporting the same jacket.

FANTASTIC

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

I tried 6 different down jackets from various well known companies. None of them kept me warm even at 30 degrees. After discussing my failure to find a suitable jacket I talked with Customer Service at Backcountry who suggested looking at Norrona's Trollveggen. Although it was a bit more than I wanted to spend I decided to order this jacket. Am I glad I did!!! It is definitely worth the higher price. I had tried jackets with as high as 900 down fill, no luck. The Norrona is 750 fill and so far I have been very warm at 5 degrees, windy day, on long walks with my dog. The quality of this product is excellent. When all buttoned up the only part of you exposed to the elements are your eyes. I will recommend this jacket to everyone I know. Exceptionally true to size, for me at 6'3"tall and 175 lbs. a large is perfect.

Best Coat Ever

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

I live in Chicago and got tired of being cold, so I splurged on this coat. Boy, am I glad I did - it's the best coat I've ever owned! I am 6'6" tall with long arms and athletic build, so most coats I buy that fit me through shoulders are boxy in the body. Not this coat - long arms, broad shoulders, tapered, long body - the XL fits perfect. When you put this coat on, it's like you're enveloped in a soft, warm hug. You can fit layers underneath (the coat is pretty compressible), but I rarely need to. It's been negative 20 F regularly here this winter, and this coat keeps me warm. The hood is amazing - I can, for the first time, see when it's on, but it snugs up around your whole head like folding a feathery pillow across the back of your head and up next to your cheeks. The zipper comes up high and protects nearly your entire face. I got the blue and love the color - it's energetic and sporty - I've gotten many compliments from others. What else can I say - superior fit, attention to detail, well constructed, warm. My only regret is not getting this sooner - but the long suffering through cold winters is now officially over. Thank you Norrona!

Love it- except neck is a bit tight

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

Overall, love this jacket. I haven't been camping/hiking/skiing with it yet but have used it a lot walking the dog and look forward to wearing it. The hood has a fantastic pliable "wire" in the brim which allows you to customize the fit of the brim/hood depending on the wind and light = a fantastic feature. My only complaint is that the seam at the base of the neck is too tight for me by about 1/2". I have a 17-17.5" neck, though I am trim. The fabric/zipper at th elower neck will sometimes push in against my throat and makes me feel like a little kid with a sweater on- that gag feeling. It may go away as the zipper, etc. fabric breaks in and becomes more flexible. One positive to the snugness is the added warmth from sealing off some that chimney airflow in loose-fitting jackets.
The long sleeves are EXCELLENT!

Any thoughts about sizing? I am 6'2", broad shouldered, narrower waste (not "skinny"), 220#s. Should I go for XL or XXL?

Thanks for any comments...Geoff

Responded on

XL should work well, the arms run a little longer than US brands and the body is a little trimmer. AT 6'2" 220# the XL should be a perfect fit (unless you like it baggy).

Why does this jacket use 750 down when 900...

Why does this jacket use 750 down when 900 down is available? 900 has a greater warmth-to-weight ratio.

Best Answer Responded on

Different fill powers are used for different purposes. 900 fill is much more expensive and tends to go into pieces that are meant to be ultra light and supremely compressible. For this jacket, the 750 was the choice that Norrona made.

Responded on

Ultra light and supremely compressible. Sounds like two characteristics I really want in an alpine down jacket. "For this jacket, the 750 was the choice that Norrona made." Well said sir, well said.

Responded on

There is no standard for reporting fill power. Euro companies tend to be more conservative with their fill-power reporting. You can learn more from Valandre's (a world leader in down gear) website.

Responded on

Actually, there are very specific standards regarding down fill measurements they incorporate temp, humidity, barometric pressure, altitude, and even the chemical composition of the atmosphere.

The reason why Norrona didn't use 800 or higher is simple: they aren't on par with the super high end down manufacturers such as Feathered Friends. Not that they make 'bad' gear by any means, but the same money gets you a Marmot, FF or other parka with 800-900 fill and better quality. (750 isn't exactly low end either, I have several Canada Goose and Fjallraven parkas which use 625-700 fill; top end Arctic gear tends to use lower fill because it compresses less in the insanely high winds)

Responded on

900 would be out of control. That fill category is used in Altitude Mountaineering and Arctic Expedition style jackets. It would be too warm for what this jacket is purposed for. This jacket is not a stand alone like many expedition jackets are. This jacket can be used as an extra layer outside of a shell when belaying, or on shorter ridged ascents with quick descent in mind. Norrona is one of the best outdoor clothing manufacturers in the world, so it is nothing to do with them being subpar as mentioned above. I can't agree with seventh on that. It has only to do with the fact that Norrona has not developed a concept for Expedition style clothing like Canada Goose, Marmot, Feathered friends and other companies like that. This company is focused on other sports more specific to winter big wall climbing hence Trollveggen (workwear for the mountain), not Hight Altitude workwear. Their other products are more focused on big mountain skiing, backcountry skiing and park skiing. All of which require equipment to be light, compressible and packable. 900 fill clothing is not any of that, it is bulky not as compressible and takes up a lot of space. Hope that makes sense.

Responded on

Euro rated 750 fill-power is approximately equivalent to US 800-850 fill power. This jacket has exceptional down. Granted, 900 down is available, but it is prohibitively expensive relative to the negligible benefit you get over 850 down. I disagree with Rambo that 900 wouldn?t make sense for a jacket in this category; Patagonia makes 1000 fill-power jacket in the same genre. You just pay an arm and a leg for the novelty. 900 fill isn?t just for high altitude mountaineering; it is for every possible temperature range that would require insulation. Also, again disagreeing with Rambo, all of the so called expedition companies he listed do not have 900 fill-power expedition style jackets. Lastly, 900 fill is exactly the opposite of what Rambo suggests; it IS light, compressible, and packable. Actually, it is the best at all of those things. That?s why it is appealing. Bottom line: You get great down in this jacket. If it has enough fill weight (in contrast to fill-power) for the temperature range you expect to encounter, you would be making a great choice.

Fantastic jacket with one caveat

Fantastic styling and overall comfort with one caveat; I’ve owned this jacket since November of 2012 and have only had the opportunity to wear it 8 times. The reason for this is that this jacket is so warm that even wearing it in the mid 30's is overkill. I have found that there is one problem with this otherwise wonderful jacket. The armpit areas of the sleeves are very tight. This makes the jacket noticeably uncomfortable in that area and makes it difficult to wear a sweater underneath this jacket. With a bulky sweater I find the feeling unbearable. In spite of this problem I am keeping this jacket as neither cold nor wind present a problem and the issue I mentioned is minor if you wear a shirt (no sweater) and undershirt beneath it. If Norrona decides to redesign this one area this will be a killer coat.

i would like to know how many grams of down is this jacket filled,and how much primaloft is filled?

Andreas, I think you might be asking an impossible question. Norrona has this to say on their site
Lightweight 100% recycled polyester fabric, developed specifically for down products. It�s soft, water-repellent, wind-resistant, and down proof to allow improved moisture vapour transportation over coated and laminated fabrics while providing excellent packability.
According to their site 70% of the fill is recycled, but it gives no ratios. This may be a good question to ask Norrona directly. They do have a Facebook page in which they will respond to questions from consumers. Hope that helps.

yes hi. i am wondering if a simple large plastic dispossable poncho is a good way to keep jacket from getting wet in a suprise down pour. they are easy to keep handy.

Responded on

order a larger hardshell that would fit over the jacket or I would buy a Mountain hardwear down jacket that has 800 fill down and then put a hardshell over that!

Responded on

Look into the Rab Neutrino Endurance for a lighter, more water resistant and much cheaper option. Great reviews and has won awards.

Norrona!!

As always a great product from Norrona! Superior warmth and cool colors on this one.

Anything better?

In down likely not. The Trollveggen is one of the best climbing/cold weatehr jackets around.

Waterproof?

Waterproof?

Responded on

These do have a DWR coating that will shed some moisture, but no, NOT waterproof.

Responded on

thick enough that it takes a while for the rain to soak through, and quick drying.. so if you get caught in the rain for half an hour or so youd be fine, but not a reliable waterproof option

Responded on

One of the best DWR...but not water proof.

is this blue any less crazy bright than the blue of the Norrona Lyngen Men's jacket?

Best Answer Responded on

Crazy bright is the Norrona way.

Responded on

ive seen both in person now, and youre right, still crazy.. but slightly less bright than the lyngen!

Responded on

Both crazy bright. But you're in the backcountry, so bright means visible, and that's good.
