Developed for demanding ascents and descents in harsh alpine environments, the trollveggen PrimaLoft100 Zip Hood is our most technical and durable hooded insulation jacket.
Introducing the revolutionizing, recycled PrimaLoft Gold Aerogel insulation, the jacket offers an outstanding a warmthto- weight ratio. Aerogel is known as the world’s lightest solid, and with the PrimaLoft Gold Aerogel they’ve managed to utilize its great insulation properties into outdoor gear.
To ensure maximum performance, we’ve mapped out different key areas of the upper body and used this to place extra insulation where it’s needed. The outer fabric is a durable, lightweight rip-stop nylon Cordura ideal for rough surfaces and is highly windproof and water repellant.
This creates a jacket that can take a hit as a standalone outer-layer as well as a warm and protective mid-layer. Practical features include a wind hood which fits a climbing helmet, hand warming pockets with extra insulation thanks to the quilted front, inner pocket and longer cut back to prevent gaps.
This down-like product is the go-to mid-layer for any mountaineer with no room for compromises.

PrimaLoft™ Gold 100 g
PrimaLoft™ Gold 100 g is a patented micro-structure that gives great thermal insulation to help the body maintain its temperature, minimizing energy loss. Extremely light and soft, it was originally developed by the US Army to replace natural down. As down absorbs moisture, it becomes wet and loses its thermal-insulating abilities. PrimaLoft™ absorbs three times less water, is 14% warmer when dry and 24% warmer when wet, than the competitive insulation.
Norrøna continuously strives to improve the function and sustainability of our products. In order to get the best combination of sustainability and performance this product was developed with a C0/NFC finish which means we removed the fluorocarbon chemistry (PFC) from the water repellent treatment. Unfortunately this may temporarily cause “chalk marks” or visual irregularities on the surface of the fabric, but it will disappear after the first wash and it does not effect the performance of the product.
Oeko-Tex® Certified Standard
Oeko-Tex® is an independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels. To be certified all parts of an article must meet the required criteria - in addition to the outer fabric, for example, also the sewing threads, inserts, prints etc., as well as non textile accessories, such as buttons, zip fasteners, rivets etc.
Bluesign® Approved Fabric
The independent bluesign® system pursues the unique approach to minimize the environmental impact of materials throughout the production process. The so-called Input Stream Management ensures that all during the textile production process applied substances and raw materials are already verified in advance of the production. The system focus guarantees the application of sustainable ingredients in a cleaner process that reduces water and air emissions, improves its waste water treatment and generally reduces its ecological footprint.
