I have a pair of Norrona Stranda lightly insulated pants from a couple of years ago and bought the Lofoten insulated jacket this year. I love both of them! Norrona puts out a very high quality, nicely crafted product.

I have the pants in a small and the jacket in a medium. (5'4", 130 lbs). I almost purchased the jacket in Sm, but happy that I went with Md as it's a bit of a slim fit. I think a small would have been binding under the arms. At first I thought the Md was a little binding under the arms, but after the pit zips relaxed a little bit, the slight binding feeling went away. The light insulation is quite warm, but not too bulky.

I have the blue... it's a very bright blue, pretty true to what is shown, however it has a very nice fine plaid in the color that's just a slightly darker shade of blue (don't see it unless you're up close).

Worth the price paid! Thank you for importing product from this company.

I have a Stoic softshell jacket in a size medium and love it! It has plenty of room for layering and is very well made and styled. I ordered these pants after reading all of the reviews... I am 5'5", weigh about 125 lb and usually wear a small (6) or medium - depending on the cut. The Stoic Tour Softshell is a nice heavier weight softshell with some useful features, high quality construction and nice styling... However, when I tried them on I found them to be too snug in the hips and thigh and about 4" too long. I cycle, skate and tele ski with a normal build for these activitites and do not have short legs for my height. Sadly I had to send the pants back - which was very easy to do with the Backcountry return policy. I instead went with a Mountain Hardwear Synchro softshell pant - which is a roomy medium with belt loops and easy venting (I could almost go with a small in this one - but I don't like restrictive clothing for tele skiing and prefer to have room for adding a layer). I would give the Stoic 5 stars for quality and style, but only gave them 3 stars because of fit.
