Good Jacket

So I bought this jacket this summer with the intention to ski with it. So, I will probably write a more detailed review after I ski in it. You could definitely wear this as a multi season for rain/snow Nice lightweight shell jacket. The lightweight material makes me a little nervous about brushing it against a tree or branch while skiing . Fit is an athletic fit, as described. It fits great with a fleece or down sweater underneath it. Not too worried about the shortness of the jacket because I wear bib pants when I ski. Can’t wait to try it out this winter.

100% windproof and waterproof, this jacket is light but sturdy. The harness friendly side pockets are spacy. I bought a medium and it fits perfectly with my base layer and a thick fleece jacket. Norrona in US is always on sale. It definitely beats an Arcteryx hardshell jacket with similar price.

Looking for a men's parka, gore tex (or reasonable facsimile) w/ zippered pockets, liner, and storable or detachable hood. Most I see the hood is non-detachable. Suggestions?

Awesome Lightweight Jacket

I've been skiing in this jacket for 2 seasons now and absolutely love it. I use this jacket on the warmer but stormy days where not alot of insulation is needed. It fits really well, I ordered an XL and I'm 6'3" 22lbs. It does fit slightly short but i also wear bibs so the short fit doesn't bother me much. I think due to the color when the jacket gets wet it looks like it gets soaked through but it indeed does not and I have always stayed 100% completely dry. It can get a little chilly at times depending what layers you're wearing underneath. I also use this jacket as a rain jacket especially when out walking my dog. The pit zips are nice and big allowing for heavy airflow when it's warmer out on the slopes or for touring. The two chest pockets provide more than adequate storage and the hood is larger to fit over a helmet.

Great jacket, but SUPER short!

I bought this jacket for my husband for Christmas this year and when he tried it on, we both just stared at it, wondering why it would be made SO short in the front! He’d have a pretty cold belly if he tried to wear this on the mountain! Also, the color represented online is a brighter blue, when in reality, the jacket is super dark blue. The construction is good, sleeves are long, but not wearable if you’re tall (he’s 6’4”).
