Picked this jacket up mainly for in bounds skiing. Also, looking forward to being able to use it throughout the year because of it's versatility. Shell is extremely well made and finish is top notch. I picked up the Blue Berry color and love it! It's a perfect fit for using with just a base layer under it or going with multiple heavier layers for colder days. The cut is slightly "looser" than the Narvik 2L jacket as it goes past you mid section to the bottom of the jacket. I've only used it skiing once so far but it performed flawlessly. I'm 6'1" about 205lbs - Chest measures 43.5 and waist is about 35 or 36 in jeans. I picked up an XL and it fits excellent throughout. I couldn't go smaller because the jacket would be too tight in the shoulders and chest. Pics posted to show general fit and color when being worn. Also there is an interior zip pocket and the pockets built in to the chest vents do have a separate zipper to hold you're valuables in if the chest vents are open. (left chest vent pocket does have the lens wipe attached in it)

I check Norrona's size-table, and my size between S and M, but close M, but and think about ordering
one in S.
Will especially the arms be too short in S?
If I will have thick fleece under the jacket, how mach stretched it?

I am 180cm and about 84kg. I use an L size and it fits fine. I would recommend an M size in your case especialy since you need room for a fleece mid layer. I think that size S will be small.

I have owned this jacket for one year and there are already holes in the shell. Backcountry has been no help and told me to contact Norrona. Norrona refuses to pay for the repair of the jacket and attributes these holes use.
Its a ski jacket and should be designed to hold up under skiing use for more than one season priced close to $500 retail.
I'll be taking my business to another retailer and outerwear company who support their customers and products and so should you.

I have this jacket as my main ski coat. Im 6'3" and 220 lbs the XL fits well and the sleeves are just right. The cut is longer and the bottom of the jacket covers my ass well:)
The vent pockets on the torso hide 2 hand pockets while also opening a mesh screen for venting. Not everybody will like this.
the collar rides very high which I like as my neck is a cold point for me, it also has anti scratch chin lining.
The wrist gaiters are the best, I use this jacket for photography and you would be surprised how well those gaiters keep my hands a little extra warm when my gloves are off, talking of which, the cuffs are overly ample to get over gloves.
The exterior material is soft shell like and doesn't stiffen in cold temp.
The Powder skirt is the most secure i have used and combines with Norrona pants as well.
