JohanBwrote a review of Norrøna Lofoten Primaloft100 Jacket - Men's on October 24, 2013
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I bought this to complement my Patagonia Down Sweater (which is a great jacket) with a Primaloft jacket with a hood. I have ended up using the Lofoten jacket more and more as it is looking so comfy so it is hard not to put it on before going outside.
It is not as warm and light as the Patagonia Down sweater and it doesn't pack as small as a down jacket but it has a slimmer profile, is light and warm enough for most cold days and definitely if used together with a shell. The hood is great both when on and keeping the neck warm when off.
The jacket is possible to pack in a pocket but it takes an effort and don't see it as something I would do on a chilly day without gloves. I normally just stuff it down the packback when not using it where it is quite bulky. My Patagonia jacket is much more packable and has some elasticity in the pocket that makes it easier to pack.
All in all the Lofoten jacket is a great jacket and is very versatile with few limitations. I use it a lot and have almost a dozen of other Norr�na stuff that all are performing to expectations.
