This is a Norrona Roldal Gore-Tex Jacket, in women's size small. Color is called "blue moon." This jacket is not insulated. I have the insulated version and I absolutely LOVE it. I wear it often and beat it up and it last really well, and it keeps me warm. This jacket is the non-insulated version. It's a hard shell and offers excellent wind protection, as well as Gore-Tex waterproofing.
If you're not familiar with Norrona, they're an environmentally conscious Norwegian company that's been around for a long time and is just recently available through lots of retailers and not just backcountry.com (who had exclusive distribution rights in the US for some period of time). I've been wearing Norrona jackets snowboarding since I first tried one, and now I will never wear anything else. They're well made and they last forever.
I've worn this jacket less than 10 times (which is why I'm selling) because I don't do much spring skiing and I need more insulation than a hard shell. So I just don't ride much in conditions where this jacket works for me.
As a result, this jacket is in excellent shape. There are traces of wear along the edges of the front zip hand pockets (shown in photos). Otherwise, I couldn't find any flaws. The color is the most accurate in the first picture. It's close to a robin's egg blue or a bluebird blue, not as bold and bright as it looks in a couple of the photos.
Personally I don't like hard shells for skinning/touring, so I wouldn't recommend it for backcountry, but it would be great for resort riding. I love the length because it covers your butt and keeps you warmer.
