The Men's Lofoten Shell is Norrona's most versatile freeride jacket for powder hounds both in and out of the resort. Its Gore-Tex Pro shell provides guaranteed waterproofing that remains extremely breathable for fast-moving skiers and snowboarders. The Lofoten also features a removable powder skirt that buttons into Snap-Seal compatible pants for extra security, and X-open ventilation uses two-way zippers at each underarm to vary how much airflow you need. A Zip-Seal system allows you to zip the Lofoten into Zip-Seal compatible pants for complete coverage. The adjustable hood has a wired brim to stay out of eyesight, and the inner hand gaiters have thumbholes to secure the sleeves. Norrona designed the Lofoten with Y-sleeves for a full range of motions, and a drawcord at the hem and hook-and-loop cuffs ensure proper coverage. Because Backcountry. com is Norrona's exclusive retailer, you might be the only one in the backcountry and at the ski resort styling this colorful jacket.
