Well, the Stranda was designed for skiing/tight and the Lofoten for Snowboarding/loose.
Both jackets use Primaloft for insulation, however the Lofoten has a Gore-Tex shell. I have both, and always takes the Stranda for skiing and the Lofoten pretty much any where else. The Lofoten is a little warmer. They are both waterproof, (and windproof).
