    From big-mountain bombing to the backcountry.

    The Men's Lofoten Shell is Norrona's most versatile freeride jacket for powder hounds both in and out of the resort. Its Gore-Tex Pro shell provides guaranteed waterproofing that remains extremely breathable for fast-moving skiers and snowboarders. The Lofoten also features a removable powder skirt that buttons into Snap-Seal compatible pants for extra security, and X-open ventilation uses two-way zippers at each underarm to vary how much airflow you need.

    A Zip-Seal system allows you to zip the Lofoten into Zip-Seal compatible pants for complete coverage. The adjustable hood has a wired brim to stay out of eyesight, and the inner hand gaiters have thumbholes to secure the sleeves. Norrona designed the Lofoten with Y-sleeves for a full range of motions, and a drawcord at the hem and hook-and-loop cuffs ensure proper coverage. Because is Norrona's exclusive retailer, you might be the only one in the backcountry and at the ski resort styling this colorful jacket.

    "No such thing as bad weather..."

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    When I moved to Norway a comment I heard many times was "there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing". My initial reaction was funny - ha ha, as I arrived in Norway with high quality American brand outdoor gear. After seven winters in Norway all of the gear I brought had been replaced with Scandinavian brands, and primarily Norrona. Depending on your perspective, it is either over-designed and 'heavy' or bomb-proof. After many winter adventures in Norway, many involving unexpected weather conditions and some requiring unplanned bivouac in snow holes, I came to appreciate the Norwegian clothing design standard. The fit is different than many American brands and is consistent with a country of people who are generally thinner and longer legged than us. You need to be prepared to try the fit. I am a medium is almost everything but ended up buying the Norrona Rodal GT pants in small (separate review) and the Norrona Lofoten GT jacket in medium. I agree with other reviewers that the internal phone pocket is too small for the newer larger phones but I find every other design element to be great. The hand gaiters are perfect, the sleeve length is fine and being able to 'snap' the jacket powder skirt to the Rodal pants is great. I have Norrona gear that is 20 years old and still going strong. Based on my experiences so far I expect to have the Lofoten jacket for many years to come.

    Best shell I've ever owned

    I haven't bought a ton of shells or ever spent this much on one, but this thing is the bomb. Great fit, great look, sturdy, comfortable, and just fantastic in deep snow. I've only used it for lift-served terrain, but it's seen very cold weather in Utah, and very wet snow in the Sierra. Kept me warm and dry when everyone else was heading for cover. Love it. And with the awesome bright green color my wife loves that she can always see me in a lift line or on the slope. Look forward to testing it out for Alpine Touring later this winter.

    Definitely fits a more athletic build, it's relatively narrow at the waist. Made for a european fit.

    Probably the best piece of ski gear I've ever purchased.

    Best shell I've ever owned

    GTX Pro Shell is Nuclear Bomb Proof

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L

    Okay maybe it could not save me from an a-bomb, but hopefully I'll be skiing pow in it if one goes off. The jacket is sick. Zippers are all solid, pull tie at bottom keeps it tight when I don't want to use the skirt. The seams are all taped with small tape, but sealed nonetheless. The sleeves fit me well, but I could see people with large forearms having issues with how tight they are at the bottom. The wrist gaiters take a minute to get used to be keep the weather away from your hands.

    I am 6 foot, 165 lbs, and the Large fits me pretty well. It could be slightly longer, but all the other dimensions fit right.

    I give it 4 stars for a pretty small downside. The issue is the inner cell phone pocket doesn't fit my Iphone 5s with a case on it. It might be the case, but I know a 6s or 6s plus would not fit either. Maybe it has been updated since my model, but I thought that was a slight bummer.

    I'm back

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Hi, I was going to return the jacket L because I feel little baggy. Fortunately I keep it. I cannot say about durability since I used 1 day, but it feels really good! Warm enough but more important super comfortable. Really love it!

    I'm back

    One of the best shells.

      First I tried with M. I'm 5'9" 190lbs. Didn't fit at all. Went to. L. I have to say the fit is kind of weird. Long arms, maybe not so long, but I'm not get use to it. Normally I wear M to have trim fit or L to have some room, but this L was loose on chest and arms and snug at waist. I'm using Arcteryx Crossbow M and fits perfect. It's an old model bought in 2011, but You can under layer ok. Don't get me wrong, I could use this jacket in L, but I prefer a better fit.

      Excellent Quality

        The fabric is great, very light and kind of soft outside. Definitely a premium shell. The size was to small for me. I took M, the arms are ok but too snug at the bottom. I'm 5.9" 190lbs, so I went to a large.

        Fantastic Shell Jacket.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        Just received this jacket yesterday so this is just an initial review as I obviously haven't even been outside in the jacket never mind skiing in it (it's July!). But I can say my initial thoughts are this jacket is incredibly well made. Top notch feel, seams, zippers, all feels very high end. I'm just under 6'4" tall, 200lbs, 42L suit size, 35" waist, and the XL fit perfectly. Excellent length of the sleeves and below waist/butt for great snow coverage. With it being a Euro company I think the overall fit is a tad on the smaller side even though I labelled it true to size, it is, but compared to a US XL it is on the "slim" side. I was worried i'd be swimming in an XL (like I am in my current Rossignol insulated jacket) but it's not at all. I debated between a L and XL but knowing I would be layering underneath I went XL and glad I did. I also bought a fleece jacket in Large to use under this jacket, perfect fit for me. I look forward to using it this season. Lofoten Pants coming next!

        After wearing this Jacket several times now skiing in ranging weather conditions, I am VERY happy with it.
        In cold/windy weather (-5 and below) just be sure to bulk up on the mid layers but in the teens i've often had to remove a midlayer I was so warm. Access to pockets is great with the HUGE side openings and the hood is excellent, very easy to slip over my helmet. The fit and quality of the jacket is just so superior to anything I have had previously.

        Lofoten is the new Narvik

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small

        For the past 7 years I've ridden the Norrona Narvik jackets. When I was forced to replace the last one I was devastated to learn that Narvik had been changed into a baggy fit downgraded model without zipper link to Norrona pants. I'm glad I checked out the new Lofoten though. Basically they've taken the Narvik cut/fit to Lofoten, which used to be much baggier. The new Lofoten has a great fit that is not baggy yet allows excellent movement (I'm pretty slim with longish arms and size small works great). I did like the pockets/vents in the old Narvik better though. Also, the super thin hard shell takes some getting used to for someone who's been riding a softer shell. Not a complaint however, just need to reconsider the base layers.

        Awesome stuff

          I am 6'1.5" tall, 190lbs. I have a 33/34 inch waist. I originally ordered the large shell and the medium pant. I was at the absolute maximum on the pant so I returned the pants and got a large which is a perfect fit and I have room both larger and tighter if I need it. I love both the shell and pant, but unfortunately I did this today. Total bummer! I was messing around off the side of a cat track before bombing down a run and I went between two branches and I didn't see the stick poking out at shoulder height. I bashed it so hard that it ripped through the jacket for about 6 inches and gave me a pretty good puncture wound, scrape and bruise. Maybe not bomb proof, but I like it enough to order another shell. I love the way the jacket snaps into the pants and even zips together if you wanted for extra protection for deep powder days.

          Awesome stuff

          Sweet Shell

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Large

          Beautiful fit and finish, thoughtful design features, welded seams, and comfortable wrist gaiters. I'm tall and I hate jackets that are too short in the sleeves to accommodate longer arms, and this jacket fits me perfect in a size Large. This is hands down the nicest piece of outerwear I've ever owned.

          Great Shell

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Medium

          I've put about 10 days on this shell. Thanks to everyone for their reviews that helped in pulling the "buy it" trigger. It fits like it should. I'm 5'9" and float between 160 and 165 pounds. I have 31" waist. I also got the Lofoten pants in Medium. The shell definitely fits close to the body. However, Probably could have worn a small as the arm length is generous. But happy with medium. In cold WX I can put a down jacket under it and it's not too snug. With just a light fleece there is some extra room but not too much. I skied in it on sunny days and snowy days. It sheds water as it should. But I also liked how it seemed to allow sweat to evaporate out if it to a reasonable degree. One small issue: inside pocket needs to be bigger to hold today's stupidly large smart phones.

          The pants : I definitely could have worn a small, but was hesitant to be at the high end of the adjustable waist. On the medium, I can cinch the waist to where I need it without lots of bunching. As far as performance, they worked great with a mid weight base layer down to 15 degrees. Below that you'd need some more: another reason to have the medium for me as I ski in colder Montana mostly. They shed water and breathe as advertised. I also like the extra snap at the bottom so that I can snap them for a closer fit around ski boots.

          Can't say much on how they will last based on only using them 10 times but construction appears to be top notch.

          Final note - the light blue she'll is a great color. More than one stranger offered a compliment. I got the black pants but they are more grey than black. I like the color.

          Great jacket, but not for me

          • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
          • Fit: True to size

          This is a very well built jacket, but I ended up returning it. I wanted a jacket for resort skiing and general around town use.

          However, the lack of pockets and the uncomfortable thumb loops make it, for me, hard to use in town.

          If you only use it for skiing, and specially if you wear a backpack, this would make an excellent jacket for you.

          Norrona Lofoten Pro Shell

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: XL

          I cannot say enough about this shell. I've had mine for three of four years now and it has been bomb proof. Granted I got the yellow so it is a bit dirty now, but still works like new. I've tested it over and over from Japan to Canada, across the US and Europe. This thing has summited Mt. Shasta in Cali, Sky Pilot and many others around Whistler, I've done extended backcountry tours in Rogers Pass and Garibaldi Park and it just doesn't fail.

          So, for features the thumb straps on the sleeves are clutch, they work great with gauntlet style gloves to keep all snow out. Powder bib + bib pants = zero snow getting where it shouldn't be. I love the full length pit zips for extra ventilation and the hood and waist bungees are great for keeping everything tight but flexible. The media pocket is great for music device and includes a hole for headphones. I also really like the arm pocket for a small tool and your RFID pass if you're skiing in bounds. Lastly this shell is great for blocking all wind, and it was waterproof for the first year or so, but as with many garments like this you will need to re-establish the waterproofing at some point with the NikWax tech wash or similar. If you don't, expect it to still work well in snow but any rain will drench it.

          As with other Norrona products I LOVE the fit. I am tall and skinny which makes it nearly impossible to find gear that fits properly. The Norwegians have my number though, and they make the sleeves long enough for me and the torso isn't ridiculously wide as most larger size jackets made by other brands are.

          Norrona Lofoten Pro Shell

          Great Jacket, awkward fit

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
          • Size Bought: Large

          I bought the green jacket with the yellow pants both in large size. It looks and feels like excellent quality work. The only thing that bothered me is the way that it fits. I am a normal built but have a little bit of a tummy, nothing crazy and you cant even see ti when i'm wearing normal clothing but this jacket is tight around the stomach and hip area. The sleeves are long and shoulder area is big as well but then it shrinks around the stomach and waist and it is really uncomfortable. I cant get an XL because I will be swimming in it. Very weird cut shape and I have to send it back even though I love the way it looks and feels. If you arent skinny, dont get this jacket. I will leave comment for pants because they too are cut really weird. Very long and baggy on the bottom and small around the bum area.

          How warm is the shell?
          What temperatures are too low to wear this shell?

          Does this jacket have hand warmer pockets?

          At 6'2, 185... any chance a medium would work for me? Looking for something fitted but long enough to snowboard with. 41" chest. I had an arcteryx theta AR and the large bulked up a ton with a pack on.

          Hey there,

          It may work for you, but it may be a bit too short depending on your torso length. What I suggest doing is purchasing a Medium and a Large so that you can compare sizes and go with the one that best fits you and return the jacket that doesn't work out.
