Columbia Men's Lhotse Mountain Parka
Lhotse Mountain rises massive and majestic as a wonder of steep peaks and stunning vistas. The fourth highest point in the world, it's the truly daring that take on its treacherous descents and icy blue beauty. Only slightly less impressive, the Columbia Sportswear Men's Lhotse Mountain Parka is a wonder of versatile innovation and technological advancement. With zip in capabilities, this 3-in-1 system has endless options for the many moods of winter.
The shell provides waterproof, breathable comfort from the elements as well as Omni-Shield repellent properties to shed rain and stains. The thermal liner is designed with Omni-Heat reflective technology to prevent heat loss and keep you toasty when temperatures are extreme. Wear the shell and liner together at the beginning of the season, then separately as the weather warms. With added features such as a removable hood, pit zips, plenty of pockets to stash your gear, and articulated elbows for freedom of movement, this durable jacket was designed with the rider in mind. Made with 57% recycled materials, not only is the Columbia Sportswear Lhotse Mountain Parka for men good for the shred, it's good for the earth as well.

Lhotse Mountain Parka
I ordered this Columbia jacket for Christmas. I would like to mention that Altrec shipped fast. I was impressed. I have owned several Columbia jackets through the years. I like their affordability versus the quality when compared to other top name brands. Columbia quality is second to none at a usually lower price than a comparable product. This Lhotse Mountain Parka has great features, such as a lift pass clip, zippered vents in the underarm, and my favorite, the liner fully zips inside the jacket. I haven't tested this parka yet, but it seems to have solid construction, as all Columbia products I've owned have had. I really like the features as I already mentioned. It's overall a clean, functional design. This will be my favorite jacket yet. The only drawback to this order, and not necessarily this jacket, is the sizing. I've always bought Columbia jackets in size Large and they have fit me perfectly. I am 5'7 155lbs. Not a really big guy at all. The Altrec video for this jacket shows the tall lean model to wear a size Medium, which according to that, would be a better size for me. But I ordered a Large since all my other jackets have been large. This jacket seemed quite large. The liner alone is definitely too large. I'm going to return this one and get the medium. I have always bought "jackets" versus "parkas" and I know a parka usually fits larger, so maybe this is my mistake. Regardless, the point being is this jacket is super nice, although it does seem to wear larger than other Columbia jackets I've owned. Step your normal size down one size and I think you'll be very happy.
