Ingrid J's Bio

Grew up tromping around the smaller mountains of Vermont. Moved to Seattle when I was 13 found the real deal with these western mountains. Traded in my snowboard for a set of tele skis and havent strapped on a board since. I love traveling whether it be looking for snow or water....Im happy with either.

i lOVED this fleece. i bought it in the only size left hoping it would fit...but it was too large. Norrona does run a little large so i should have known to stick with the size XS (5ft4 120-125lbs). It was just a little bulky for me. I rather wish i had kept it as I'm regretting returning it. i liked the semi higher collar, the fleece was nice looking and very comfortable. will be buying from the norrona website as i must have. i did buy the black and it attracts pet hair and dust like crazy...so i was constantly plucking off hairs. i think in another color it would be less noticeable.
Got one in XS, perfect fit.

i wanted a short boot i could toss on and wear after skiing or whatever. the boot was so stiff that it would flop off my ankle and made my toes grip to keep from dragging the boot. after wearing for 30 mins at work i was so annoyed i returned the day i bought the boots. Uggs don't slip off my ankle at all. i did like the fur as it was luxurious and good quality. the sizing was large, so i went a size down. i got these in black which was nice/non-descript and they looked cute on the foot...not overly bulky.

I personally love this top. I like the thin aspect of it and the inside is lined with a bit of a fleecy feel so its soft. i overheat and love that i can layer this on its own, with a wool tank or with a wool t underneath. i love the extra long zip for venting. its great for xc skiing, biking, or anything where you can sweat to death. i don't have to wash it every time i wear it which is also kind of nice. but i usually wear a wool t with it. norrona runs a little large so i got this in an XS (I'm 5ft4 between 120-125lbs) and it fits perfect. not snug at all but not loose, its literally perfect for me.

I haven't taken this bag on a plane yet. I just bought it to replace an ancient old ski bad. There isn't much padding, but when then bag rolls out flat there are compartments for 4 sets of downhill skis or numerous sets of xc skis. the bag rolls up into what appears to be a large Toblerone chocolate bar. each compartment has waterproof lining so you can pack skis and also pack some clothes in the bag. the bag is HUGE so you can stuff clothes on each end of the bag to maximize luggage. the bag is rather long so carrying it may be a challenge if its super heavy. all in all, so far i love this bag but again haven't really used it yet. **If you plan on using this bag for travel take into consideration the weight limits for your bags. I loaded this up for 4 sets of skis, 3 sets of poles and a few bits of clothing and it was way over 70 lbs....oops. it did fit everything very well, but for a short stump lugging around a 70+lb bag, wheels would have been nice.

These snow pants are by far the best pants Ive ever bought. Goretex for obvious reasons makes these pants uber water resistant even on the wettest colded days I am sitting happy with these pants. I use them for snowboarding as well as telemark skiing. Im 5ft 4" 125 lbs (or less on my good months) and i bought size small. They sit on my actual waiste and not my hips. but they dont give the appearance of a mom butt. they are NOT tight by any means. I prefer a looser fit over skin tight snowpants (which seem to be the style) These fit a little looser in the leg but not loose too loose. They are perfect when wearing ski or board boots but when i am wearing regular shoes or just walking around they are quit long and drag.
The pants came with an attached powder skirt which is awesome for added protection.
all in all, these pants are worth the money.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The coat is SOOOO comfortable and warm. I felt like I was putting on a down sleeping bag. The hood was lovely, big enough for a helmet but can also adjust to normal head size. It comes with a coat carrying bag which would be nice for travel or using for other travel purposes. I am 5ft 4 125 lbs and I bought an XS. I wouldnt be able to wear a thick wool sweater with it and be able to raise my arms, but who needs it when this coat is so warm. I prefer a more snug fit when I buy down jackets. It hit below my butt which is nice for butt/thigh warmth on blustery days. The front of the coat is higher on your face so its nice to block cold wind on your face. Im basically regretting that I returned this jacket....I did return it as I needed a shorter coat and something that was lighter for my travel needs. **update: I ended up buying it again but they only had size small. Had to return that as the small was way too big. The arms were bulky and shoulders were too wide. Norr�na does run large so always go down a size from normal.

Love this jacket. I use this all year round. If its a super sloppy day I wear a hard shell, but normally i toss on a base layer and im good. Its super light weight, has good movement (not stiff), great against wind, and snow. Recently took it on a trip to Norway and i was xc skiing in 50mph winds and i wasnt cold at all!! Love the hood, works for a helmet and can also scrunch down for heavy winds so the wind isnt poofing up your hood and allowing cold air down your neck. I highly suggest getting this coat.

These pants are worth every penny. They are super warm but not sweat to death warm. I can wear them when its super cold and can also wear them on their own for cross country skiing on warmer days. Love the small pocket, great for ID or hut money. Im 5ft 4 125 lbs and got the small. They are about 2-3 inches too long for me but its not too big a deal. If i roll them up wrong I do get a little rubbing in my ski/board boot but nothing life altering. They were snug on me but not skin tight, I feel very comfortable in them. I can move around but they arent baggy at all by any means. I dont have any hips to speak of, so they fit perfectly for me in the hip area.

Love the look of this pack, reminds me of my uncles vintage bags from Norway. The green color with the red piping is so classic looking. The bag is perfect for smaller day hikes or shorter trips. For anything longer it would be a little uncomfortable. The straps are narrow and there is no back padding, so if you have anything thats a weird shape (shoes, food containers, etc) it will dig into your back if you dont pack your bag carefully. The bag has great pockets and its super light and great for traveling and day hikes. The fabric appears thin, but seems durable and the zippers are tough and strong. Well made bag.

I bought this for added warmth for ski touring but have since used it all the the time anytime i need touch of warmth. It's incredible how light this coat is yet it's ?uber warm and functional. I love that it barely adds any weight to an already heavy pack and even on times I haven't needed to use it i always bring it as it is virtually weightless and if my pack is full I clip it with its bag onto the side of my pack. This coat is also great for late summer hikes. I thought I lost this coat and without blinking bought another one. that's how much I love it. Practical for all things cold.
Im 5ft4, 122 lbs, narrow build and went with a small. The arms are the perfect length and it hits right at my hips.

I bought these for a trip to Argentina for day hikes and lots of trail walking. I am breaking them in before my trip and have found there isn't much breaking in to do. The first day I wore them I walked home from work....with no socks. Bad idea, i had no skin on my ankles by the time I got home. With socks these shoes are a dream. Uber comfortable, very supportive, stiff for hiking and love the lace design. The laces don't become loose and undone at all.
**I have been wearing these shoes all summer. Ive used them for trail running and for light hiking. they are so comfortable, very stable, and perfectly stiff. when i step into a stream or its misting rain my feet have never gotten wet. i wear them walking to work every day and they feel brand new still. brand new in a good way though. ***Side NOTE-these shoes run small. I am normally a 6.5 in most shoes and i bought these in a 6.5. hiking its ok, but trail running is painful as my toes pinch. I have had these shoes for 2 years and havent thought about exchanging them....but maybe its time for a 7.
**another update. So I got the size 7 as the 6.5 was tad small. But the size 7 were actually too big. I took them on 2 hikes with thick socks and even with thick socks they just felt too long. My ankles slipped out the back and my toes had too much room. I dont know if i should try another 7 or another 6.5 as I love these shoes. Besides my odd sizing issue i truly love these shoes.
