I've been using the Lofoten jacket and pants throughout the 2007/08 winter season for both summit trips and resort telemark skiing. They are truly great stuff, worth every penny. The jacket is very thin and light, using gore tex pro shell. Details are just what you need, no more no less. Also versatile as you can choose between zipping jacket and pants together to a 1 piece suit or using the powder skirt and suspenders. Jacket takes almost no place in the backpack. Gaiters fit nicely around Scarpa T1 boots and reinforcements show almost no signs of use so far. Great buy!
