Norrona's philosophy to make clean, sleek, minimal products with all the critical details is obvious in its Men's Roldal Gore Tex Insulated Jacket. Backcountry. com is the exclusive US retailer for Norrona products too, so you can hit up Bohemia in Michigan, Stowe in Vermont, or Tahoe in California and not see your jacket twin everywhere. The Roldal's Gore Tex shell gives this jacket guaranteed waterproof protection that remains breathable, so you stay dry in bad weather and comfortable when there's nothing but a sunny sky overhead. Norrona also stuffed this jacket with soft and supple PrimaLoft Infinity insulation that warms you up while remaining incredibly light and compressible.A more athletic fit pulls the Roldal close to your body without restricting the movement you need for mogul runs and skate skiing across the flats, and a longer cut gives you move coverage. The powder skirt blocks snow when you're floating through waist deep fluff, and you can remove it when you don't need it. Underarm venting lets out some steam when you work up a sweat, and its mesh lining prevents any snow from slipping in when you have the zippers open. The hood can slide over your helmet or cinch tightly across your head to protect you from snowy conditions. Inner hand gaiters with thumbholes keep you hands warm as well as keep the sleeves in place.
