I've been using this jacket for over a year. It's a great shell. Versatile enough for casual travelling, hiking, glacier walking. Abrasion resistant, fully waterproof and windproof. Has long venting zippers. Lower pockets are able to accommodate iPad mini. Hood goes over the helmet but could be adjusted to use without it.
This particular jacket is roomier than typical norrona style. I have size M and can layer underneath. I wear M in Marmot, Columbia and NF, but size L in Haglofs and Norrona (could wear M, but with no room for layers). But still, as all Norrona products, this jacket is made for tall guys, the sleeves are long, but It is appreciated in harsh environments, when arms are covered no matter what you are doing.
External pockets are velcro and I have never had an issue with them, it is even convenient, when I'm wearing gloves
Overall, I like this jacket very much.
On the photo I'm wearing this jacket on a glacier walk in Norway (with Haglofs rugged II pants, which are also great). Im wearing old colour version.
