At Outside Sports we only stock the very best, so we’re super proud to welcome Norrøna of Norway to our stores. Their backstory is fascinating and shows how they’ve earned their place as one of a tiny handful of ultra-premium adventure sports brands. 

Family owned since 1929 

In 1929, Jørgen Jørgensen, a Norwegian outdoor enthusiast, began making durable outdoor equipment that would perform in Norway´s harsh and rugged land. Almost 100 years later Norrøna is still a family-owned and run company, based at Norrøna House in Oslo, Norway, and the company is still dedicated to creating the ultimate performance product for outdoor adventure lovers.

Loaded Minimalism™  

Loaded Minimalism™ is the principle that guides Norrøna’s design team. Their mission is to establish construction techniques, and redefine the meaning of fit, fabric, function, and finish.  

Norrøna’s signature style is clean, pure, and highly functional, in joyful colours that reflect the happy feeling of being out there in nature. 

Norrøna’s drive for practical purity has produced a number of pioneering benchmarks. Norrøna created the original mountain tunnel tent, devised the standard monitoring system for backpacks, and were the first company to use Gore-Tex® in Europe.

Welcome to Nature

Norwegians have a saying ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes.’ To Norrøna that means making the apparel you need to get out there and enjoy the outdoors without the weather being an obstacle. Their vision is ‘Welcome to nature’ and they deliver that by creating the world's greatest outdoor products through responsible business.

How to pronounce Norrøna 

Norrøna is named after an ancient Norwegian Viking dialect – hardy adventurers who never let the weather stand in their way. To say Norrøna like a native lightly roll those ‘R’s, and gently accent the second syllable. The ø is prounced as a soft ‘ou’ sound as in ‘you.’
