Norrona Narvik Jacket

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am looking for some feedback on the Norrona Narvik Goretex 3L softshell. I am thinking of replacing my Arcteryx Stingray with it. While I like my Stingray I miss the wrist gators, the fit of the Norrona seems a bit closer to the body as well.

I was today on a tour wir my narvik 3L jacket and pants... Very breathable as always, very comfortable and doesn't make the strange noise when you walk... It's hard to compare  the haglöfs, mammut or arcterix i, for me the norrona narvik or lofoten is the best jacket to buy... bougt it last year

Fit is quite narrow, but if you are a slim guy it looks perfect.

I'm slim with long arms so I'm hoping the advice on the narrow fit will work for me.  I just discovered the Norrona line of jackets so hopefully you don't mind if I ask a couple of questions:

  1. Are the arms on the long side?  I've heard they're cut a bit longer than other jackets (which would be nice for me).
  2. Is the Narvik insulated?  If not, are there other Norrona jackets that you'd recommend that are insulated?


-Thanks, Todd

The Narvik is not insulated, but the Roldal is.

Looking at a Narvik XL, I'm 6'2" and 200+, I've been told to go with the XL if I'm replacing my Sidewinder AR XL for layering up.

I use a Stingray L for spring skiing, which could be longer, but it gets use in FL during winter and during rainy season. biggrin.gif


I can always use another opinion.

I'm 6'1" and generally in the 215 +/- zone. I have the Narvik and Lofoten in XXL. The cut on both runs pretty snug in the shoulders and chest. If you are string bean build, XL may do it for you. I can't downsize to the XL and still feel like I can layer. The good news is that backcountry is mellow about returns. So if you need to swap, it is fine (assuming they are not sold out).


The Narvik is nice and tough. However,  I prefer the Lofoten if I'm carrying a pack - the pockets are just smarter for that. But there's a price in durability for the lighter weight and stuffability of the Lofoten IMO. Both are awesome jackets.
