Backcountry. com is the exclusive US retailer for Norrona products, and it's bringing you the Women's Lofoten Gore-Tex Active Shell Jacket so you can sport it down the steep summits in Chamonix, France or the steeps of A-Basin, Colorado. Made with a Gore-Tex Active Shell, this jacket has guaranteed waterproof protection that keeps you dry in the burliest weather, and yet it remains remarkably breathable and light--weighing barely over one pound--so you can climb, tour, or even hike in this jacket and stay completely comfortable. All the seams are taped with Gore-Tex's thinnest tape so you don't feel bulky and uncomfortable while you boot up big mountains. The powder skirt's silicon grip means you won't have to tug it down after a long run in the trees, and it's removable so you can leave it behind when you don't need the extra snow protection. Norrona designed its Lofoten with a medium fit that accommodates layers for the frigid days and articulated elbows that make sure you get the freedom of movement you need to hike and ski. Not only does this jacket have the X-open ventilation zippers under the arms, but it also has a VentPoc pocket so you can let out all the steam you sweat up when you're working hard. The hood can either slide over your helmet or cinch comfortably across your head with a simple, one-handed adjustment. Water-resistant zippers enhance this jacket's waterproof capabilities in ways that most jackets don't. Asymmetric cuffs stay out of your hands so you can summit peaks without torn-up sleeves. And Norrona's proprietary Radio/Keycard Pocket at the sleeve offers an excellent place for your radio or ski pass.
