With the intention of being a game changer to new
generation of skiers, the lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Pants
were made uncompromisingly to fulfill the big
mountain freeriders need for protection from the
most demanding conditions out there. Just like the
original, the new pants have a looser fit and unique
features such as thigh cargo pockets to ensure
easy storing, long zippers for great ventilation and
extremely durable reinforcement on the lower leg to
protect the pants from steel edges. The bright colors
introduced in the original line have been modernized
and more tonal but are still bright enough to ensure
secure visibility. The pants come with a removable
bib which prevents the snow from creeping in and
keeps your pants in place.
GORE-TEX® Pro is the most durable fabric technology from GORE-TEX® for outdoor use. The GORE-TEX® membrane uses a woven liner to reduce weight and bulk, enhance moisture transport and minimize abrasion, all while maintaining durable waterproofness. The ultimate storm-protection fabric.

Strong and sweetRiding with the Lofoten GT Pro is a treat. I love how the pants function in remarkably well in tough conditions, their features such as pockets on the right places, ventilation and that you can tighten around your ski boots when cramponing, makes this an awesome pant. The fit is great. I´m a XS with my 153 cm / 5 foot and love how these pants fit well both on the length and the width. When I need to perform I don´t think about the pants, and that´s good. They are just there, comfortable, well-functioning and simply aweseome. And they will last for wear and tear. Just how we like it.

For those that really tend to put their gear through the wringerI've worn these pants throughout all 5 stops of the Freeride World Tour last winter. We hike to the top most of the time and that include making your way over snow, ice and rocks. These pants held up no problem and I'm confident they have MANY seasons in them even if you wear them as often as I do!

Disappointing Changes, but Loyal to the PantsI have owned, worn, and loved Lofoten Gore-Tex pants and jackets for years, and they have stood up to all abuse, wear and tear in the mountains of Vermont. I have several of them, in many colors. I had wanted white ones for some time, so when I saw them on the website I ordered them immediately. The website claims these have the same loose fit as the original, but strongly I disagree. These are quite a bit more narrow across the upper thigh, hips, and seat, so much that my old ones fit loose and comfortable over two mid layers, including fleece short johns and a quilted down pant (it's cold here), while these ones - in the same size - are very tight from two-thirds of the way up the thigh and past the hip, and that is without any layers under them. They also changed the zipper so it now stops below the snap buttons instead of going all the way to the top like the old ones. This creates a small gap that lets cold air in and looks unsightly, as it creates a small bump.
Despite these new flaws, these are still great pants, but they definitely do not fit like the original. Because I love the brand so much - and because I really want these white pants - I took them to my tailor. He has altered the length of other Lofoten pants I own, so he is taking part of the excess leg fabric from these and adding it to the hip, upper thigh, and seat area, and he is changing the zipper so that it goes all the way up as the old ones do. An expensive endeavor, but worth it for a pair of pants that I know will keep me warm and dry for years to come. I do wish they had not changed them.
