Anyone have a picture of this jacket ,
with the hood up over ones head ?
Can only find a norrona video of the female version ...
Hi there ,
strange norrona did not include a elastic cord with cordlocks to tighten the hood in front.
- > Though i just noticed there is a fabric strip ,
on the inside edge of the hood .
If it forms a hollow "tube" , would it be possible to retrofit an 2-3 mm elastic cord w/ cord locks ?
Seem like a fairly easy sewing challenge .
Although it would seem strange to have to do this to brand new piece of clothing ...
How thick is the padding on the waist belt and shoulder straps ?
Is the waist belt really load bearing or mainly stabilizing against sway.
My old Henderson Marine pump had a 3 foot long hose and needed to be filled with water before being able to pump anything .
---> Oh what a joy this pump is - compact - perfect hight for a sea-kayak.
Powerful stream of water streightaway.
It even floats do to high visibility foam floatation.
Found a small eyelet near the top - so now it is tied to the boat with a fixed length cord.
Here's to my mini-review of the Arc'teryx Kappa pants:
I use this binding on top of the v-20 riser with its fitting heal block.
Scarpa T2x boots on Fischer Boundless Crown XCD skis ( 98-69-88 )
It provides an amazing amount of side support - with the 2 upper bail positions .
I can easily crank turns on the down in soft snow and even in wetter heavier snow.
I use this setup in early winter in now more than a foot ( 30 cm ) of soft snow on base.
Any deeper or heavier snow and touring /uphill skiing becomes rather uncomfortable. As there isn't enough free upward movement of the boot and the ski thus tends to submarine under the snow at every step . Having to lift the snow on the ski tops on every step is quite a workout.
This is a comon affair with non-hinged bindings.
But the feeling of 3-pins is so liberating ,if the conditions are fitting.
So they'll allways have a place in my heart and quiver.
For deeper snow i bring out my other skiis with 7tm Power-tours - a hinged free tour binding.
The pants really do fit well over everything.
But the rather puffy boxy look may not bee as stylish on its own - though the high warmth trumps style. :P
No pockets on this pant , but possible pockets on the underlying pants are easily accessed via the side zippers.
Wide cuffs go nicely over telemark plastic boots (Scarpa T2x ).
There is an elastic cord tightener at the cuff that doesn't work quite so well - velcro on outside would have been better.
But this won't matter much when worn over ski boots.
The lining is very slick durable feeling ripstop fabric.
The texture and color of the main fabric is pleasantly non-shiny and quiet.
High quality smooth running zippers.
Suprisingly small packing - so this pant will go on my day long backcountry ski tours - along with a puffy jacket for breaks and bivy.
Might also be an option as a warm layer under some shell pants.
Is the warmest synthetic puffy pant
i could find.
How are these insulated on the inside/palm ?
If fleece - how thick is it ? - Micro fleece , polartec 100 , p. 200 or high loft ?
I really like the clean looks of this jacket.
I would be using it as my main wintertime shell.
My Q. are:
- Is there a drawcord at the hem ,
and one a bit higher up.
(where the powder skirt is usually mounted)
- Is there a rigid or wire supported visor on the hood?
- What sort of lining is on the inside?
Micro fleece/Dri-clime ?
what is the diameter or circumference of the wrist cuffs
unstretch'd ,on the L and XL ?
Does the jacket fit skin tight or can i fit a body hugging MH Monkey Man jacket underneath.
Also does the jacket have a hem drawcord ?
How thick is the fleece lining ? - Is it in the realm of power stretch or polartec 100?
Thanks a bunch,
Hi there ,
purple is one of my fav. colours ,
Does anyone know if the hood sports a firm ridgid brim -
to protect ones face and eyeglasses in rain and blizzard.
Also will it turn well with just a wool hat underneath (no helmet),
So that my head does not swivel - while the hood stays in place.
The cut looks very long , though .
As i do telemark skitouring/resort , if cut longer than mid butt ,
the jackets can prevent getting in the low enough turn stance.
Thanks a bunch. =P
Hi there ,
can anyone tell me if the jacket has a -
powder snow skirt?
Also is the shield of the hood reenforced ,
to better shield my glasses
( wich i have to wear 24/7) ?
Seems like a great Dayhike shelter.
Can you tell me what the single pole weighs in at?
Also since there are loops along the outer fabric for the tent pole, would it be possible to suspend the tent from tree branches ?
This would provide a lighter solution for below treeline trips.
Thank you ,
ich habe meine bei Sport Conrad bestellt - super niedriger Preis und es ist das model mit "step in".
Der Shop "Sportler" hat eine Filiale in Innsbruck
(bindung ist teurer als sp-conrad)
Hoffe dies hilft.
