It is written that Arc'teryx Norvan is the market's lightest, most compact GORE-TEX® product with hood. The jacket weighs only 120 grams with a fantastic comfortable and smooth fabric. It comes with a small bag to pack the jacket down in.

Water and windproofness

Norvan SL Hoody keeps the water very good and breathes very satisfyingly. It has a long-necked hooded hood that keeps the hood open when your head turns. The hood goes well over the head with a stiff screen edge in the pan. The zipper is pulled well up to the hook. The seams throughout the jacket are glued / welded.


The jacket breathes very well and leaves little moisture inside even at high intensity.


Awesome soft and comfortable fabric (Permanent Beading Surface) that has a solid thickness. The jacket is tightly seated with long, good arms with rubbery cuffs and a reflective edge around the body. The jacket fabric also gives a warming effect when the sun shines on it.


This is my favorite jacket on regular exercise trips when there is a lot of rainfall.

That little extra

Extended arms with comfortable cuff edges, folding hood and a fabric that is very comfortable against the body.
