Serious protection for four-season adventurers.

From summertime glacier skiing to mid-winter snowshoe hikes, the Norrona Svalbard Men's Gore-Tex Jacket is your best defense against whatever the weather decides to throw your way. With a nod to Norrona's classic mountain jacket from 1975, the Svalbard has a vintage look and feel melded with technical materials to ensure reliable weather protection during all of your year-round adventures.

Thanks to its three-layer Gore-Tex laminate and fully taped seams, this jacket effectively seals out rain, sleet, and snow, while also providing adequate breathability to prevent underlying layers from becoming wet with sweat when you're on the move. The Svalbard is even made with Gore's C-Knit backer technology to more effectively transport accumulated heat and moisture outside of the jacket. In terms of fit, the Svalbard sits slightly looser through the body and arms than most technical shells, providing additional room for extra layers and giving it a more relaxed look and feel. The cuffs and hem can be adjusted to lock in heat, while the two large underarm zips can be opened up for quick ventilation if things start to get too toasty.

Style and space

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Light shell, oversized but has style. I’d say order true size and prepare for a spacious fit.

My favourite outdoor jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've been using this jacket for over a year. It's a great shell. Versatile enough for casual travelling, hiking, glacier walking. Abrasion resistant, fully waterproof and windproof. Has long venting zippers. Lower pockets are able to accommodate iPad mini. Hood goes over the helmet but could be adjusted to use without it.
This particular jacket is roomier than typical norrona style. I have size M and can layer underneath. I wear M in Marmot, Columbia and NF, but size L in Haglofs and Norrona (could wear M, but with no room for layers). But still, as all Norrona products, this jacket is made for tall guys, the sleeves are long, but It is appreciated in harsh environments, when arms are covered no matter what you are doing.
External pockets are velcro and I have never had an issue with them, it is even convenient, when I'm wearing gloves
Overall, I like this jacket very much.
On the photo I'm wearing this jacket on a glacier walk in Norway (with Haglofs rugged II pants, which are also great). Im wearing old colour version.

yup, as you said, "as all Norrona products, ...... made for tall guys". I'm 5'8" 175 lb. I wish they made GT ski pants with short inseam....

Looks good but quality suspect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

A lot to like about this jacket. Roomy enough to wear over a sweater, nice color, big pockets, quite warm considering that it is pretty light. But less than six months after purchasing it, with fairly light wear, some of the stitching on the pockets is coming apart. Makes me wonder about the quality, which is surprising considering how expensive it was.

Cool style from a unique brand. Just purchased so can't comment on the durability yet but initial impressions are great.
