THE most incredible jacket on the planet!!I bought this on a gut feeling after considering the usual suspects. I wanted something completely outside the box so I ordered this.
It's just about everything I've ever wanted in a shell. Huge pockets and a lot of them, but the two chest pocket are asymmetrical which enhance the design/look of the jacket. I love the two hand pockets too, with horizontal zippers.. you never have to worry if you left them unzipped and something will fall out. I'll never buy another jacket without hand gaitor's ever for snowboarding. Genius.
The jacket is long, the arms are long and the coverage is just great, you feel completely protected, like no other jacket.
A few small suggestions on updating fit below:
The hood is deep so you have to cinch down the drawstring to get it away from the sides of the goggles. Also once this is done turning you head side to side you don't have the most flexibility so I'd open it up the neck diameter a hair for better movement.
Also it's a bit of a slim fit which most Norrona products seem to be, I'd open up the waist or middle section of the jacket a little bit, say an inch or so just to get a bit
more loose feeling. As a snowboarder sitting down it can be a bit snug, I'm a solid 32 inch waist and got a medium, but the lower zip on the main zip definitely helps loosen things up.
Overall I'm gonna buy another one in a different color, I got the camo and nothing compares. I hope next years colors rock, I do like the more toned down colors in this line, but still not completely into the blue and tan.
I'd like to see some camo pants, but in the Lyngen design or Lofoten, I like the zips on top of the thigh which look cool under the bottom of the jacket.
Well done Norrona. I'm going #allnorrona
