Lightweight hard shell which breathes very wellThis is a hard shell in Gore-Tex active fabric which is a great jacket for skiers and snowboarders that want to have a allround ski jacket which works well for both skiing powder, ski touring and skiing in the slopes in a ski resort. It is lighter, and a bit less durable than the Gore Tex Pro jacket. It has great ventilation possibilities, together with covering you up and keep you protected against what mother nature throws at you of wind, rain and snow. It takes so little space in your backpack. It also comes with a new very lightweight powderskirt which you attach to your Norrøna ski pants for preventing snow to enter, making it almost like a one-piece. I'm 172cm and 60kg and use size S in this. Quite regular size on this. The hood goes well over a ski helmet, and is easy to tighten with one hand on the backside of the hood.
How is the fit on this one compared to Lyngen Driflex3 Jacket? Longer/shorter, narrower/wider?
Asked by: Erics
The jackets measure exactly the same across the chest, so they run quite equally in the width. The Lofoten Gore-Tex Active Jacket is 1.5 cm. shorter in the centre front length than the Lyngen Driflex3 Jacket. But overall I would say that they are quite similar.
I hope this was helpful.

Is this fabric 3-layer Gortex. Is it still durable in combination with backpack?
Asked by: Died
Yes, this fabric is a 3-layer Gore-Tex Active with 30 denier, and will be durable enough to use with a backpack.
