Raising the bar on burly.

The terms burly, tough as nails, and bombproof get overused whenever outdoor gear gets brought up, but if there's one ski jacket deserving of such high praise, it would have to be the Norrona Lofoten ACE Gore-Tex Pro Men's Jacket. Too tough for scissors to cut and too rugged to be dyed, the Lofoten Ace is the first jacket built with Vectran fibers. Vectran is spun from a liquid-crystal polymer that is coated for added durability when you're skiing through thick stands of birch trees in Hokkaido or shouldering your skis up a steep bootpack in Engelberg. Vectran fabric is then backed by a Gore-Tex Pro membrane for dependable waterproof, breathable protection during the biggest storms of the season.

Just short of perfect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large
  • Height: 6'1"
  • Weight: 175lbs

This jacket is truly incredible, however there is one design element that kills it for me: The chest vent that comes all the way to the chin. This vent zipper does not properly lock at the top, resulting in zipper slippage that requires constant re-zipping. The netting that comprises the vent piles up on the inside of the chin when the vent is fully closed which creates a bit of clutter inside the neck of the jacket. Finally, the fact that this vent comes all the way up to the chin adds complexity to unzipping and re-zipping the jacket. I found myself constantly having to brace the vent when trying to unzip, or grabbing the wrong zipper by mistake dud to the close proximity of the zippers. Besides this chin vent, the jacket is perfect, but for the price, they should have nailed this design element as well.

this jacket is phenomenal. Very durable, and lightweight. Was a little concerned about the weight initially, thinking that it would sacrifice the durability and abrasion resistance. I was wrong, the 3 layer gore never fails. Noronna went all out making this the ideal backcountry or resort ski jacket that you need for your ski equipment. Fully sealed and dry in any conditions you will be, and just enough room to layer comfortably. I would say that the fit is slimmer through the chest, so something to keep in mind. I tried it with a cerium LT from Arc'teryx and it was snug through that area so size accordingly.
