I just got my snorkel blue delivered and it's definitely the Norse II (not zoned). I have a navy one on order too but it hasn't shipped yet. I ordered them a few days apart.

Per their US & UK websites, Ping's 2020-2021 fall/winter apparel is now available: https://ping.com/en-us/shop/products?category=apparel&filter=mid-layers,rainwear,outerwear https:

GOT IT and its fridgen awesome!!!! the fit, style, warmth, and color is right on point! The quality is amazing, even the way the zipper is shaped makes it extra easy to zip. it gives a updated "fitte

I hate their website. Something always seems to be broken. Today, depending on the brower that you use, you might be able to see the various Elden color options on the little picture below the large picture of the beige (Feather Grey) Elden. But, even on that, the color is muted. The Elden appears to be on sale at other locations as well TGW appears to have all colors available and is $4 cheaper than Ping is. They also have free shipping.

At 40% off, the breaker isn’t a bad deal. It’s nowhere near the jacket the Norse is at full retail, but at $80 or less, it’s a good buy for a good looking, average performing jacket (there’s no real “tech” in it). Just keep in mind the Breaker is a good bit of a slimmer fit than the Norse, so it will fit much more closely to the skin by design.

My golf club had the Breaker in stock - gray and beige. The forearms were a bit snug for me, so, it was a pass for me. I am right in between size S and M, so, unless I can try it on, I am unlikely to buy it. It is fun to look, but, realistically, I have enough gear for now. Though, I managed to lose a bit of weight, and, was a size M, but, some S's fit better now.

FWIW. the Breaker jacket & vest are also available at TGW for significantly less that the sale price on the Ping website ($18 & $16 less respectively, before Ping shipping cost). PING Men's Breaker Full Zip Jacket | TGW.com PING Mens Breaker Full Zip Vest | TGW.comThis is not intended as an endorsement of either the Breaker apparel or TGW (I don't have either, nor have I ordered from TGW). Just passing along info.

 

Lastly, TGW has a good price on one of the Norse II jackets. But, I can't tell which one. They are calling it the Zoned Jacket. But, all of their photos are of the non-Zoned version. They are selling it for $110 (large & XL are available). If it's the non-Zoned version, this is a great deal. If it's the Zoned version, reviews haven't been quite as good. If I were in the market for another Norse II (and they had XXL available), I'd take the chance that they are selling the non-zoned version. If they sent me the zoned version, I'd return it saying that the jacket that they sent doesn't match the photos on the website.

I first saw this a few months ago, when I was in the market for the Norse. I wrote TGW to tell them that the photos and title were in conflict with one another and included photos of both versions as well as links to Ping's website. They just got more confused and thought that I was talking about last year's jackets vs this year's jackets. By that point, I found the Norse II cheaper at Golfbase and just bought it from them and gave up on trying to help TGW correct their webpage.

Ping Mens Norse Primaloft Zoned Jacketthis is a another one of the right picture wrong description original Norse available at worldwide for 50%off. Probably worth the risk to send back if it isn’t right. They do have a separate listing with the zoned pictures here

That would be awesome. Or you can wait until I’m back in Atlanta. Probably first of the year.

 

but wow man, yeah I can mail it back if it doesn’t fit. You said these run small right? But are to be worn pretty tight?

I have the black and grey vests and coats from the 2016 Nike Aerolayer line, can wear the vest over the coat, warm and very non restrictive. I got the new Steph Curry UA golf hoodie, which is a solid top layer if really cold.

2nd Swing has a listing for Ping Norse Zoned Jackets on sale at $99 but offer a extra 30% on Apparel. I am not sure if that is the “good” jacket or not but for $69 I’m sure I will get some good use out of it.

tgw has the new norse 2 for $39 and change

The title says zoned but the description and pictures are of the good one. Also, the new version of the zoned is not available in the light blue color to my knowledge (its only available in one color) but regular norse 2 has 2 color options (both available at tgw).

I ordered the dark blue in large and XL last night to try out. If its the zoned, Ill send them back, but at $39 each, its worth the hassle of shipping/returns to see if its the good one, get the right fit, and send back one or both if it doesn't fit or isn't the good jackethttps://www.tgw.com/ping-mens-norse-primaloft-zoned-ii-full-zip-jacket
