Baerwrote a review of Norrøna Lofoten Gore-Tex Active Anorak - Men's on February 1, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I bought this jacket as a replacement to my Arc'teryx Beta AR jacket form 8 years ago. So far so Good, construction is great, seams are well put together. I have worn it skiing about 5 days and two times out to rainy football games. I wear it around town as well. Keeps you dry and warm.
I feel as though it breathes better than the Arc'teryx as I can wear this with just a t-shirt underneath and my arms don't get sweaty and stuck to the backing material. The only question I have is how durable the face fabric is. It's a very light weight material which makes we question if it will last as long as my Beta has. The beta is still in great shape after this many years, I just wanted an anorak instead of a full zip. I will update this as I get more wear out of it. I will be on a ski trip for 7 days in the next two week so this jacket will be put through the wringer.
