Great jacket for most days
4 5

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

I bought this to complement my Patagonia Down Sweater (which is a great jacket) with a Primaloft jacket with a hood. I have ended up using the Lofoten jacket more and more as it is looking so comfy so it is hard not to put it on before going outside.

It is not as warm and light as the Patagonia Down sweater and it doesn't pack as small as a down jacket but it has a slimmer profile, is light and warm enough for most cold days and definitely if used together with a shell. The hood is great both when on and keeping the neck warm when off.

The jacket is possible to pack in a pocket but it takes an effort and don't see it as something I would do on a chilly day without gloves. I normally just stuff it down the packback when not using it where it is quite bulky. My Patagonia jacket is much more packable and has some elasticity in the pocket that makes it easier to pack.

All in all the Lofoten jacket is a great jacket and is very versatile with few limitations. I use it a lot and have almost a dozen of other Norr�na stuff that all are performing to expectations.

Am thinking to upgrade telemark rig. Today on old Karhu Jak BC (127-97-117). Am focusing on offpist. Love skiing in big, fast surfy turns in powder, crud and slush. Good enough skier for any terrain, 165 pounds and 5'10, skiing on T1s. My question is: are the Sidestash too stiff for my way of skiing and should I look for a softer ski like Line Prophet 115 or similar?

Used these shorts pretty much every day this summer. Very comfortable, I like the hip adjustment with Velcro. And I do like the pockets placement similar to Norrona's skiing pants.

Spent one week hiking in the Dolomites with these. Perfect pockets, map in left cargo pocket and Iphone/Android phone in the internal pocket in right cargo pocket.
