Gear Review: Norrona Lofoten Warm2 High Loft Jacket
Norrona Lofoten Warm2 High Loft Jacket
$199, 13 oz. (men’s medium)
Sizes: Men’s S-XL, women’s XS-L
A highly breathable fleece jacket is a layering staple for almost any cool- or cold-weather outdoor activity year-round. This lightweight jacket raises the bar in the two most important characteristics to look for in this type of piece: insulation and breathability. After wearing it on numerous winter days backcountry skiing in Idaho’s Boise Mountains, I’ve decided the Lofoten is the Goldilocks insulating layer: it always feels just right.
The jacket moves moisture so well it kept me from overheating during hard exertion and allowed my body heat to dry out damp base layers very quickly as soon as my exertion level dropped.
