F.A.Q. on the “Geographical Norway” Brand

1. Is this the official website of the “Geographical Norway” brand?

No.

2. Which is the official website of the “Geographical Norway” brand?

It is Artextyl.com, as far as we know.

3. Where does the “Geographical Norway” brand come from?

It is based in France, as far as we know. By the way, here are some other French brands.

4. Why are you using a similar name? Doesn’t it confuse your readers?

We have owned this website name for over 10 years now and we think it’s a great name for an outdoor site like this one.

But, we understand that it may confuse some readers, and for this reason we are doing all we can to clarify and give you all the information we have about the “Geographical Norway” brand.

5. Ok, but why do you review Geographical Norway jackets?

Because we like them, and our readers like them.

We review brands that we like here on our website. Or brands that we think our readers will like and/or are searching for information on them.

6. Do you offer support for “Geographical Norway” products?

Of course, not. We don’t have any connection with them. For support please contact the official website and/or the store where you bought the product(s) from.

7. How to avoid buying fake or low quality “Geographical Norway” products?

We have received many questions similar to this. While we are not the official website, we believe we can offer a few suggestions that we have learned over the years, to increase the chances that you get a good product from this brand, and also good support.

Here they are:

– Don’t buy from sellers who don’t respond to your questions, have bad reviews, or their site doesn’t look credible.

– If you buy on eBay, check the seller’s profile, their reviews and the type of products they have sold in the past.

– We’d personally avoid private discount websites, normal discount websites and social media sellers, if you haven’t heard of them before and if they don’t have a good reputation. We’d also be careful if they don’t have a reputation at all.

– If buying locally, we’d avoid local bazaars if you are not sure that you can find the seller again, should you have a problem with the product in the future. Instead we’d buy from an established trusted local store.

– If buying online, we’d only recommend Amazon at this moment. Yes, we may earn a commission if you buy by following the links to products on Amazon that we provide on this website, as we said above, but we think Amazon offers good customers support and a good return policy. Of course, check the product and seller’s reviews there too, and don’t buy if in doubt.

– Lastly, we think that if Amazon doesn’t ship to your country and if there isn’t any trusted local store available, you should try with another brand. Probably there are other outdoor brands available in your country. But, if you don’t mind spending some money to find out if the product is actually good, then go ahead and do as you please. Yes, we are very careful when buying things, because we think, better safe than sorry.

8. Are “Geographical Norway” jackets any good?

Geographical Norway jackets have a good price-quality ratio. You can get one of their softshell jackets for $50-$70, and one of their parkas for $100.

Their softshells are water-resistant and breathable. Their parkas are very warm, heavy and waterproof. The materials they use are usually synthetic, mainly Polyester, Nylon and Elastane (Spandex).

The brand doesn’t have the history and recognition of other famous outdoor brands, but at these prices it is worth a try, in our opinion.

If you want to learn more, we have reviewed their Alaska parka here and their outdoor softshell jacket here.

9. Are “Geographical Norway” jackets waterproof?

Geographical Norway parka jackets are waterproof, while Geographical Norway softshell jackets are water resistant.

You can learn more about the difference between “waterproof” and “water-resistant” jackets here.
