Developed in collaboration with the Norwegian,
Swedish and Danish Special Forces, the recon
Gore-Tex Pro Jacket is our most durable and
weather-protective shell jacket yet. Now on its
fourth generation, this legendary jacket is truly one
of the finest waterproof, windproof and breathable
outer shells on the marked. It is designed to meet
all the requirements set by the military and is
suitable for all-round hunting, expeditions, glacier
walking, trekking and general outdoor pursuits. It
has a roomy fit with multiple equipment pockets
YKK WR zippers. Despite the excellent protection it
provides against mother nature, we have kept the
weight down to a very impressive and comfortable
level. A true favorite amongst Norrønas own
employees with a design that works everywhere
- from hunting on the mountain plateau, touring
(with skiis) in the mountains, or just as a really
awesome jacket for the rainy days in the city. Made
of recycled Gore-Tex fabric. Unisex model.
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.

That’s what I was expecting! Awesome!Placed the order on Tuesday at 22:00, delivered on Thursday, great service! The jacket is exceptionally finished. Must try under harsh weather. Only con is the size that suits a bit too large. Took a M instead of an L that was advised by the size app.

I'm no special forcesI bought the Recon jacket and trousers some 5-6 years ago, so feel that I've now tested these products for long enough...
I remember the day I picked up the jacket and trousers, I was completely blown away by the build quality of these products..
Since that day I have used them in the mountains of Snowdonia, surveying woodland, general day to day waterproofing. I have been out in some pretty horrific weather conditions over the last 5-6 years and Im always amazed at just how well these garments stand up to it. Also being the owner of four very energetic Spaniels these garments have seen their fair share of filth and grime, Ive lost count of how many times I have washed and reproofed them, but they always come out looking amazing.
Thanks Norrøna for making such amazing products.

Bought the grandaddy of this jacket 1999I purchased the earlier generation of this jacket in 1999 when I lived in Stavanger. It has trekked with me through the world and has kept me warm and dry in great style. My ONLY complaint is that the two "leather" patches are starting to degrade a bit. This is absolutely my favorite piece of clothing and I sport it now in the Elk Range mountains in Colorado! Get lots of comments on the jacket. Hoping that the Gortex continues to last but I am watching for the day that I have to get it replaced and am REALLY hoping that Norrona can do the job!

What denier is the fabric used in this jacket?
Asked by: Luke21
Thanks for your question on the denier in the new Recon Gore-Tex Pro jacket with recycled material. The denier is 80, making it a really sturdy jacket.
