Norrøna’s meticulous attention to detail and steadfast search for excellence help you go farther, faster and longer. Just ask Giuliano Bordoni, freerider, ice climber and mountain guide who puts his gear to the test day after day. Having scaled more than 50 new icefall routes and mastered the most formidable frozen faces nature could offer, Giuliano trusts Norrøna to elevate his experience whether tackling mountain peaks, pushing his physical limits, or simply navigating the wild and romantic valley he calls home.
From trail running and mountain biking to ski touring, ice climbing and mountaineering, Giuliano’s life has been punctuated by the thrill of exploring uncharted territories. So, when we asked him about his go-to Norrøna favorites, it was no surprise that the Lyngen Alpha 90 jacket, featuring premium Polartec® Alpha™ Active Insulation technology, was at the top of the list.
Flexible, protective and extremely light, Polartec® Alpha™ Direct is a unique and sustainable recycled insulation engineered to provide all-day warmth while releasing excess moisture and body heat. Because Alpha™ technology is designed to work in demanding stop-start conditions, it effortlessly adapts to your body’s internal temperature to keep you cool when you’re active and ensure reliable warmth when you’re not. The result is unrestrained freedom, comfort and breathability without the added bulk.
