Norrona Discontinued The Trollveggen Dri3 November 2016
In a neck in neck race with our Editors' Choice, the Norrona Trollveggen Dri3 - Women's almost won for its exceptional features, comfortable and stretchy fabrics, and great design. It's also $100 less than the Theta, making it a more affordable shell. Where it fell short was its odd constricting fit across the chest and the comparative weather proofing wasn't as good as the Gore-Tex Pro shells. It also had tiny hand pockets that could hardly accommodate a small pair of gloves. A big plus was its thicker shell, making it the warmest tested. As a result it wasn't as light but still packed up really small. What we really loved about the Norrona was the fact that when we put our arms up, the jacket did not lift, making it a superb shell for any avid ice climber, mountaineer, or rock climber. Not only that, but its fabric is just as breathable as the Mountain Hardwear Torsun - Women's, allowing you to keep it on while hiking uphill.
