Norrona Recon Gore-Tex Pro Jacket

Brand: Norrona
Weight: 740 g         9 reviews
The legendary Norrona Recon Jacket, now in its third generation, is Norrona's most durable and weather-protective shell jacket yet. Developed with the help of the Norwegian, Swedish and Danish Special Forces, the Recon Jacket is truly one of the finest waterproof, windproof and breathable outer shells available.

Made from the 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro material, the Recon Jacket is ideal for use both in the UK and overseas, offering fantastic protection from wind, rain and snow. It comes highly recommended by Ray Mears and the Woodlore team after extensive use around the world, particularly in the Arctic wilderness where it has become our go-to jacket. The Gore-Tex membrane uses a woven liner to reduce weight and bulk, enhance moisture transport and minimise abrasion, all while maintaining durable waterproof properties, making it a superb storm-protection fabric.

Designed for use in the areas of trekking, mountain hunting, forest hunting, expeditions, glacier walking, general outdoor pursuits and military use, the Recon Jacket is a truly versatile and heavy-duty outdoor jacket. Despite the excellent barrier it provides against the elements, the Recon Jacket is surprisingly lightweight, at just 740 g in size Large.

  Great jacket and fast delivery, thanks.

  This is basically a waterproof combat jacket; pricey but bomb- (if not fire-) proof. Excellent peripheral visibility from hood. Plenty of useful pockets. One-handed adjustable drawcords for hem and waist inside pockets a great idea. Perfect for wet weather, but with layers turns into an arctic parka; also blends into an urban environment. Very light with good movement. Downside - it's a bit crunchy but not as bad as other waterproofs. If you're looking for flexibility, multi-purpose, different environments - and for that price for me it had to be - this is it!

  I was sceptical about choosing an outdoor jacket and the price of the Norrona Recon Jacket was perhaps more than I was expecting to pay. But having recently purchased one last winter I can honestly say it’s a superb versatile jacket and one that I would strongly recommend purchasing. It’s all round reliability is excellent, windproof, waterproof, loads of pockets and dare I say from a female point of view even stylish. Excellent quality that will last for many year to come!
