I'm trying to decide on some new gear.
I am split between a jacket/pant of the Norrona Lofoten Gore Tex Pro Jacket and Pants and the Arcteryx Caden Jacket and Stinger Pant.
Both combinations use Gore Tex Pro, so I thought the material would feel the same, but in fact they feel very different.
Both Arcteryx articles feel very noisy and brittle while the Norrona jacket feels soft and thin while the Norrona pant feels soft but very thick.
I'm looking for the most durable combination as I don't want to buy new gear for the next ten years.
Can anyone offer any insight?
