Last line, Locked down :)

Bought these for days when the sky will be open and there will be nowhere to hide.

Normally im wearing soft shell trousers that will deal with some light showers and contact with some slushy snow, however there comes a point where softshell options will wet through.

I wanted a hardshell option to match my Odin Jacket, something beyond my Valen 4S, so bought these.

Been out a couple of times on rainy days and have kept warm and dry at all times. Have used the long side zips from the thigh down to act as vents when the skies cleared briefly, worked well and kept them on all day without issue with sweats/condensation.

Havent used the braces yet but these are a nice option. Kevlar instep protector and RECCO reflector are great :)

Vanir Eclipse

Purchased in March and used on a 5 day ski trip in Colorado. The pant performed very well against snow and trees. I'm 6 ft, 195 lbs, size Large fit me well. Internal gaiters fit perfectly over alpine ski boots and two way full length zippers made for easy venting on warmer days. Solid pant that I intend to use for many years.

Terrible / Non-existent Customer Service

At the start of the year I would not have believed that I would be writing the following review, having previously bought 5 items of clothing from Jottnar, all superb.

I ordered a pair of Vanir LT in small, and on arrival they looked excellent (well made and good materials). Unfortunately I then tried them on.

They are labelled ‘small’ inside the garment, however they are way oversize, more like a medium (maybe even large). When I measure them, the dimensions fit with the medium ones on Jottnars website. I believe that I have been sent a medium sized pair of trousers, with a small label incorrectly attached.

To illustrate. I already own a pair of the original Vanir’s (in small), and they fit perfectly.

I used Jottnars contact service on their website 4 weeks ago and sent them all of the above info (and my all important order number) - no reply at all.

I sent another message 1 week ago, with all of the same info and a request for an urgent reply, and a customer returns authorisation number as the 60 days return period was approaching - no reply.

I managed to get a phone number for Jottnar on the internet (there is no contact number on their website) - no answer.

Useless.

I will not be buying from Jottnar again (shame as I was planning to get an Odin jacket - not any longer).

A very disappointed, and £375 out of pocket former Jottnar customer.

Excellent Performance

This is the first time I have purchased Jottnar, I have used the Vanir LT Pant already on 4 munro trips in the Cairngorms in Scotland, lots of snow and ice, extreme wind and very cold. The Vanir LT performed flawlessly and without doubt they are the best and most robust piece of essential gear I have purchased and in my view worth the investment. The design and finish of the material is very professionally done and the material is waterproof and they also provide excellent performance keeping the chilling winds at bay, I highly recommend and would purchase Jottnar again based on my experience to date.

Excellent pants for any condition

Awesome waterproof pants for all weather types. The build in waist band and more than ample pocket space make it extremely useful. The only thing to point out is that if you plan to use it with ski boots the bottom doesn’t always zip all the way around, but the build in gators more than remedy that situation. It’s a trade off I will take because it is excellent with normal boots/shoes.
