A labor of love.

Breaking trail through waist-deep snow is tough work, but it's worth the effort when you're rewarded with a slate of untouched powder. Designed for those days when your skintrack fills in after every run, the Norrona Men's Lofoten Gore-Tex Active Jacket is made with a highly breathable membrane and three large vents—two along the underarms and one at the chest—to let body heat escape when conditions are just too good not to set another skintrack. When it's time to rip skins and cut another clean line down the mountain, the Lofoten's integrated powder skirt, helmet-compatible hood, and wrist gaiters ensure all that cold, dry powder stays in your face, where it belongs.
