The Norrøna down guide

A down jacket is probably one of the best investments for your winter (and basically all-year) wardrobe. It has a great warmth-to-weight ratio, ventilates well, and can easily be compressed when traveling. And most important – it will keep you warm and protected on cold days.

With a wide range of down jackets on the market designed for different conditions and activities, it may be difficult to choose the right one for your needs. Here’s a little guidance through the jungle of down.



All season versatility

If you're looking for an all-season puffer that can be used as an outer layer or as insulation underneath or on top of a shell, we recommend you check out our bitihorn, falketind and lofoten collection. 


The falketind down jacket and falketind down hood jacket are versatile, lightweight and can be compressed into their own pocket. They're made for a great variety of outdoor activities and work perfectly as an outer layer on cold summer days as well as mid-layer during the winter. 

If you easily get warm or are going to be active in cold temperatures, you can also choose a down vest that keeps the torso warm and your movability maxed. Together with gloves and a beanie, a vest will keep your blood flowing on cold days. 


Being some of the lightest down pieces on the market, the minimalistic and bitihorn down900 jacket is the ultimate insulation piece to bring along as it requires minimal space and keeps the weight down. It's perfect to pull on for some extra warmth when you have reached the peak, are taking a lunch break or just as a mid-layer on colder days.

We also recommend the lofoten super lightweight down Jacket - one of the lightest down jackets in our assortment made for skiing. 


Mountain protection

For maximum warmth and comfort on cold days in the mountains our trollveggen down850 jacket or lyngen down750 jacket have you covered. We can also recommend the lyngen down850 knickers to keep warm and comfy during your ski touring breaks.

The trollveggen down850 jacket is our warmest and most durable down jacket, made for adventurous and demanding mountaineers. It offers excellent warmth and durability and will be an insulating companion for many years.

The lyngen down850 jacket and lyngen down850 knickers are the ultimate insulation garments when out ski touring. Filled with high quality down with a great warmth-to-weight ratio the lyngen down jacket is our lightest down with a hood. The prizewinning knickers will ensure your lower body stays warm and won't feel left out. Both can easily be compressed into a packable pocket.

Street smart insulation

Staying warm shouldn't compromise on design. Consisting of street smart, functional and timeless designs, our oslo and røldal collection keep you warm through a cold winter in the city.

The exclusive oslo duvet jacket is inspired by the classic expeditions down jacket made to keep you warm under any condition. All through the clean design is perfect for recreational days off the mountain, the technical functionality is kept to a maximum. The construction of the jacket’s down insulation is specifically designed to prevent cold spots and maximize warmth. The fit is kept greatly oversized creating a contemporary and stylish look. 

With technical properties blended perfectly into its sleek look and feel, the røldal down750 jacket is a classic styled down jacket that works just as well as an insulation piece on freeride adventures as in the cold city scene in between.

Responsible down

Norrøna only uses down that is Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified which ensures that down and feathers come from animals that are treated well and according to the five freedoms; Freedom from hunger and thirst, Freedom from discomfort, Freedom from pain, injury or disease, Freedom to express normal behavior, and Freedom from fear and distress.  


Washing your down products when needed will make the garments last longer and perform optimally. When washing Norrøna down clothing, the washing instructions attached to the garment must be checked, but are generally as follows:

Machine wash on a gentle cycle (40 degrees C/104 degrees F) with gentle soap, preferably ment for down products. We recommend two rinse cycles. Tumble dry the product on low heat with two clean tennis balls until the product is completely dry. Do not use fabric softener. Do not dry clean or bleach.
