    Norrona's most durable waterproof jacket.

    The Norrona Men's Trollveggen Gore-Tex Pro Jacket stands up to anything you do on the mountain whether it's mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, climbing rock and ice, backpacking, or trekking. Its three-layer Gore-Tex Pro membrane gives this jacket guaranteed waterproof, windproof protection that keeps you dry in some of the burliest conditions around. Despite its durable protection, this jacket remains surprisingly breathable so you stay comfortable while you hike the steepest summits of the mountain. Fully taped seams, with Gore-Tex's thinnest tape, boosts weather protection without boosting bulk. And, because is Norrona's exclusive retailer in the US, you won't see your jacket-twin at every winter turn.

    An athletic fit pulls the Trollveggen Gore-Tex Pro close to your body in order to reduce bulk, and the Y-sleeves enhance your range of arm motion. This jacket features X-open ventilation zippers at the underarms that let excess steam escape when you work up a sweat. The storm hood slides over you helmet or cinches tightly across your head with a simple one-handed adjustment, and the wire brim keeps the hood out of sight while you belay your buddy. YKK Aquaseal waterproof zippers enhance this jacket's waterproof protection in ways that most jackets don't. The asymmetric cuffs stay off your palms when you're climbing, and there are two drawcords at the hem and waist to completely block out the bad weather. The two large zippered chest pockets can be accessed even with a harness or backpack on.

    Have questions about this product?

    Glad I got it

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

    Im really happy with this shell. I am tall and really appreciate the extra length in the arms. I had a tough time committing to investing in a large purchasing like this without trying it on but the back country staff recommended it for the longer sleeves. It fits great!

    The goretex has been phenomenal in both snow and rain. Keeps my down under layer dry. I am glad they went the extra mile for the waterproof zippers. The collar comes up nice and high and the hood fits well. The wrist closures work well for me.

    Im actually glad it does not have a snow skirt because I also have used this as a rain jacket for hiking in the spring. I like it that much I dont want to put it away!

    I got the green and its a sharp color.

    Exceptional Construction

    Great Jacket. Awesome build quality. Fit is unique. I'd say it's on the slim side with arms that are long. (About 2-3") longer than most other brands.

    Gnarly shell, but no wrist gaiters

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

    The Trollveggen fits its description; it's the most durable GoreTex put into a shell designed and built for hard work in the mountains. No bells or whistles, although not lacking in functional features, except one: wrist gaiters. Maybe another, a powder skirt, which matters alot to some but not much to me since I wear bibs and the jacket has hem and waist draw cords, but I digress.

    IMO, wrist gaiters should be a standard feature on a top of the line shell. While the cuff velcro-type closure on the Trollveggen wraps the wrist way tighter than any other shell i've owned, it's still not as good a barrier against snow as wrist gaiters. Consequently, when I want to be sure I won't get wet from the cuff up I wear my Black Diamond Guide gloves which have a gauntlet. I'd prefer to wear my Mountain Hardwear Compulsion gloves with the under cuff wrist, so that's irritating.

    Other than my wrist gaiter complaint, the Trollveggen so far meets my expectations, which basically match up with Norrona's description of the jacket.

    PS I bought the Trollveggen to replace the Norrona Lyngen DriFlex3. The Lyngen was better than GoreTex for me for most activities but the zippers are not waterproof. Got soaked to the skin while canyoneering during a flash flood type rain squall in the Swell. The Trollveggen is the only Norrona jacket with waterproof zippers. All other Norrona jackets advertised as "waterproof" are not, like most brands waterproof jackets that don't have waterproof zippers. Buyer beware or read the zipper tech specs like I didn't!

    Expensive, leaky, bad service

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

    Ok, so I bought this super expensive Norrona Trollveggen shell for several outdoor purposes like hiking, climbing, skiing and cycling (commuting to work). I washed it regularely according to the instructions with all the necessary detergent and DWR sprays. I was sort of happy for a year. Water repellency never used to be extraordinary, even after washing and applying the spray. Then after a year, the jacket leaked at the hood seams. Brought it back to the shop, they sent it straight back to Norrona, asking for a repair. It's been almost two months now, since I brought it back, and Norrona hasn't done a thing about it yet. The shop called / mailed them several times - nothing. I don't know what's wrong with the jacket neither where it is or when / if I will get it back.

    Meanwhile I bought a second-hand Arc'teryx Sidewinder jacket for work, which was 1.5 years old when I bought it and washed several times - good repellency and no leaking.

    I know I might have gotten one with a fault or that I might be a single case, but my personal bottom line of the story is: Norrona - never again. Not worth the money.

    Ripping my old Arcteryx from 2001 recently, i decided to switch brands.

    It appears that Norronas fit is more athletic, at least for my 6'5". Happy to not have taken L but XL instead, it provides sufficent freedom of movement in every direction. Cuffs are on the long side, but due to this so called asymmetric cut, you close them with Velcros (about 4 times the size of arcteryx'es) which really wrap around your wrist, glove or whatever is underneath.

    As for the zipper, you need to pay attention to really fully close it. It's a heavy duty type of zip coming apparently from the transport industry, so if you do not pay attention, there will be a small breach left behind. Else, they are supertight.

    As for these pockets, the trollveggen runs minimal. They do not interfere with any backpack straps, which is good. First I thought, i will miss the side pockets, but since these side-vents are huge, you just open them a couple of inches to fit your hands in if you need to heat them up in your underneath liner.

    There is no collar, but just the hood. A bit strange first but roll the hood and tuck it around your neck, which is no problem if supported by the rubber straps/bands.

    The garment is really heavy duty: whilst fabrication; having stretched the goretex pro layer to the max, there is the top layer sealed upon. the latter is a bit larger so overall the jacket has a slight stretch effect.

    Went with jungle fever, which is slight a bit fancier than this seasons green to be seen all around.

    there is a hem drawcord which IMO not too many brands unfortunately offer anymore; i was used to it from my old jacket and looked for something the same way.

    Overall a really great jacket for heavy use. I consider it to last about 10 years, hopefully. Anyhow, it needs to sustain next summer first - will look forward if i change my mind and go for the falketind then. But as for now, i am happy.

    Troll Wall

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large

    Me: 5'10", 140lbs, thin / athletic build.

    Jacket: Norrona Trollveggen Men's size small, color caviar.

    Norrona has gone with what I would call a very roomy cut on the Trollveggen jacket. The cut is more akin to freestyle skiing, rather than ice climbing / alpinism. The bottom rear of this jacket falls well bellow the belt line, providing ample coverage even when bending over. The front lower hem sits about an inch higher than I would like. My under layers peek out a tad in the front. This is actually a deal breaker for me as far as cold weather waterproofing. The sleeves are extra roomy, with very long pit zips. The zips can be opened from either end so backpack shoulder straps will not be a burden while venting. The hood is on par with most hard shells available these days. In my experience every GTX Pro jacket is slightly different in texture, and weight. The Trollveggen is a heavy duty jacket that focuses on durability. At the time of this review, only the Trollveggen, and Mountain Equipment Tupilak have the YKK AquaGuard front zips. Supposedly a 100% waterproof zipper. Is this really a big deal? I'm not sure, but having dealt with total zipper failure before, the more robust look is attractive in a durability sense. The zipper will cost you a little more pack space compared to those on ultra light jackets. Ultimately I have elected to return the Trollveggen. I think Norrona produces very good products, unfortunately in this case the cut is not for me. If you prefer a more generous fit, this may be the jacket for you. For me the Trollveggen would have to be less roomy in the sleeves, and torso. It would need to be about an inch longer in the front, and I would prefer a snugger fit around the neck.

    The bottom line: This would be a great jacket for someone looking for a heavier duty hard shell, and is looking for a roomy cut. I would say be careful to study the size chart if you have a long torso.

    I have this jacket from a few years back, used primarily for skiing and touring. I like that they've changed the pockets a bit. Mine were lower but could still access with backpack on but these new ones should be quite clear of any waist straps. Might miss the upper chest pocket but didn't use it that much. Ditto on the sizing, I'm 6'0' 160lb and initially ordered the L. Main issue was that sleeves were really long, returned for a M and fits great. I've put it through a lot, equivalent of two hard charging seasons. As far as durability goes, I have had some minor delamination on the seals around zippers. I've also ripped some holes in the arm/sleeve from some bushwacking. The second one was major and almost ripped the entire sleeve off. In fact, a chunk of material is completely missing. So, I'm now in need of another jacket and will likely get this one again. For those considering, keep sizing in mind and the fact that it is not completely bombproof. The delamination should be covered under warranty if it got to be an issue.

    I have to disagree about the cut, I am 5'10" 160 lbs and this jacket fits me just like my Lofoten. There is room for layering up, but definitely nothing like the Narvik with a freestyle cut. If one were to go with the lyngen which is much more of an athletic cut than most of their jackets, one would find it is very slender and does not allow one to layer up underneath like one can with this jacket or the Lofoten. I am not sure why Mat above me was bushwhacking in a trollveggen, but I have not had any troubles with punctures of the sort. Sounds like you may be using it outside of its intended use because I have never been in a situation where I needed to bushwhack with a winter mountaineering or climbing jacket on. I will agree that with time the YKK zippers do degrade, but I chalk that up to normal wear and tear over time and again if you were bushwhacking, there may be something else going on there. For more information r/t the cut just look below at Lexis photo. The gentleman on the right definitely looks like the cut is form fitting which is more my context with this jacket.

    Yes. Waterproof. PROOF.

    One of our trusty gearheads tests out the Norrona Trollveggen Jacket and Lofoten bibs under the toughest conditions (On the right).

    As he fends off direct hits from a garden hose and an overhead shower, he discovers that YES, in fact this garment is truly waterproof.

    The power of Gore-Tex in action.

    Our Gearheads have a pretty sweet day (and night) job!

    Yes. Waterproof. PROOF.
