Decent Jacket I had my last Columbia for more than 10 years. It was a lot heavier feeling jacket than this one but that is likely due to the new materials being used. I hope it is as warm as the old one. The winter had subsided by the time I purchased the jacket. I typically wear a large but this jacket had reviews that said it ran small. I heeded the advice of the reviews and bought an extra large and it fits. It is still a little tight in the shoulders but it works. I am concerned how well the Omni heat material lining the inside of the jacket will hold up. It feels like a very easy material to tear. I hope it doesn't but time will tell. As far as appearance it is a great looking jacket. April 5, 2014
Jacket Love my new jacket. nice and warm in -20 degree weathergood to warm shopping or having fun in the snow March 23, 2014
Unbelievable I am 67 years young and retired. I have worn many combinations of coats,jackets,rain gear and base layers. Nothing comes close to this Lhotse 3 in 1 jacket. I hike or walk everyday in this very cold weather north of n.y. city. Believe it or not I only wear a T-shirt under this jacket and remain very warm. Take dogs out at nite with just liner and T-shirt. We'll worth every $ . Buy it only if you want to stay warm,dry and comfortable. March 3, 2014
Retired My Old Columbia jacket I shoped hard to replace my old jacket and found the Omni Heat to be the best vaule.On its first ski trip we encounter heavy wet snow and the jacket prefromed great!The deep pockets are a plusThanks March 3, 2014
Great Coat I purchased this coat right before a trip to Colorado skiing. The coat performed great. Thursday 2-20 was easily one of the coldest and windiest days I have ever skied in and the Omni-Heat worked just as I hoped it would. This is the third Omni-Heat product I have purchased and I highly recommend it March 2, 2014
Very Warm Coat I bought this coat with the intention of taking it on a ski trip and did not regret it. I did not feel cold even once while out on the mountain. The inner coat helps to provide an extra layer of protection from the cold, and I like that I can wear that layer by itself in slightly warmer weather. I would definitely recommend this jacket to anyone looking for protection from bitter cold. March 2, 2014
Issues with main zipper..... This coat kept me warm and dry during a seven mile hike in a driving snow storm while on vacation in Jackson Hole. The pockets are nice and deep. The only issue is that the main zipper does not flow smoothly and tends to bind up on the nylon material that it is sewn next too. Better stitching or a heavier zipper may eliminate the zipper getting stuck.... very annoying. February 21, 2014
Excellent product This coat is excellent in every way. The only thing I'd be sure you check out is the size. My husband has never worn anything other than the medium or large. Fortunately we were at Columbia outlet and he tried it on only to find out even the large was on the tight side. They did not have a larger size in the store so we ordered an extra-large online which fits perfect. February 21, 2014
Awesome Cold Weather Coat Also Great for Rainy Days Heat trapping feature kept me toasty warm on the coldest of days. Runs small so if you intend to ski with it make sure you get one size larger than you normally would buy. However, it is so warm you probably won't need a heavy sweater underneath, even for skiing at 10F. But I do still recommend one size larger. I'm normally an XL bought online but I had to take it back to get an XXL. Lots of pockets. Very well constructed. Has liner that zips out for when you need more of a raincoat in the spring. February 18, 2014
Traded LL Bean jacket for Columbia Lhotse Mountain II Bought an LL Bean ski jacket that is comparable in material and 3 in 1 style. The Lhotse Mountain II is much warmer and has so many extra features (powder skirt, armpit vents, omniheat foil, fleece lined neck) that makes this jacket worth the investment. I would definitely recommend this jacket for skiing or everyday use as the 3 in 1 style makes it very versatile. February 13, 2014
Excellent Choice The jacket is great. It was down to zero the other morning and I was warm and toasty. Did what i wanted. FYI - it does rune a size small, I had to return the first one, ordered a large and it was tight in the arms and around the waist, normally I wear is a large. I got an XL and it's perfect. Very happy with my choice - good quality fair price. February 8, 2014
Awesome Jacket Just a quick review to add my 2 cents on this jacket... It's a totally awesome jacket, and worth the money! I highly recommend getting it. It is a really warm jacket! I've been wearing it around in Seattle in weather in the 20's and have been very toasty! Warmth is really important to me. I don’t know if the omni-heat thermal reflection actually works or not, but this jacket also has omni-heat thermal insulation, which is really what makes it warm. The jacket is really light weight too, and very comfortable to wear! It’s a great looking jacket also! My wife really likes the way it looks on me.I bought a Glacier to Glade interchange jacket at the Columbia outlet store in San Marcos, Tx., and while it was pretty comfortable to wear, and performed nice in the rain, it did a terrible job at keeping my warm. I think the omni-heat thermal reflection by itself is pretty much worthless. Fortunately, I decided to return my jacket to the Columbia store in downtown Seattle, and I talked to a manager named Kirk who was totally awesome, and helped me get a refund, and get this new jacket. I have been absolutely happy since! I totally recommend it! February 7, 2014
Lhotse Mountain II I love this jacket (it's really two interlocking jackets). I live in the Los Angeles area and bought a coat for a December trip to NYC from another manufacturer. That coat was rated "warmest" and was supposedly rated to -15 degrees. At +25 in NYC, I was always cold in that coat. I returned it and bought the Lhotse. Wore it to Portland OR a few weeks ago when it was in the +20s and I was plenty warm. Great quality. Good strong zippers, etc. January 28, 2014
So far, so good I bought this combo for a skiing trip in Anaconda, MT. It held its own with a baselayer and pullover. I was on the mountain the day after Christmas on a gleaming day. The temperature was probably in the mid to upper 20's, give or take. The only times I felt cold were on the lift. Although that seldom happened. The powder skirt did a sub par job. I was a little damp after a full day of skiing and falling here and there. That was my first time skiing, so an experienced mountain man would probably keep dry. I only have issues with the outer layer. The pocket located near the heart gained a hole only after a few times of wearing. I'm not sure if it was due to an old mp3 player I kept in there or what. Either way, I did get some condensation on that mp3 player. And cant' remember if it had that hole at the time or not. But buyer beware, I'm going to have to sew that hole up before it becomes to large. The side pockets are located closer to the chest, so it makes it somewhat awkward dealing with them. The sizes of each pocket will allow you to carry more than you need, so that's nice. Also be careful with the draw strings on the hood. One of mine has nearly been pulled off already. So that's a pretty big negative. Especially since the hood easily gets blown off in windy conditions. The outer layer also didn't come with an extended cord to help pull the main zipper up. With gloves on it's a task trying to pinch the zipper. I added a drawstring from an old bag and it did the trick. The water rolls right off in the rain. The inner jacket is a gem. I've been rocking that bad boy just about every day this cold winter. You don't have to over layer underneath it. Throw on a hoodie, gloves, and scarf and you'll be warm in the single digits with just your regular outfit. I bought the Dark Backcountry version and am very pleased with both jackets colors. I'm 5'11 190lbs and the large fits nice. Overall, I really like this product. A little disappointed with the wear the outer layer has shown early on, especially with the price tag. But the inner layer is so nice it almost makes up for my distress. January 24, 2014
Omni Heat Jackets This is such a great product. I bought the whole family jacket for Christmas. I purchased a total of (5) winter coats. They were just in time for the weather at the football games. Very warm and comfortable.Perfect product. January 23, 2014
Up to the Challenge? Just purchased the Lhotse today, my third Columbia coat system in 20 years. The first coat, a Gizzmo system, is by far the best outdoor coat I've ever owned. The zip-out jacket liner was even reversible so I could wear it as a black jacket or a purple jacket. I've skied with it at -15F with 15-20 mph wind and it kept me warm. It still looks great but I am reluctantly giving that one up to charity because I'm a bit larger now than I was 20 years ago and it is too snug at the waistline. The second coat, a Double Whammy system, is not as warm as the Gizzmo, but is a great coat for day to day wear and looks awesome; but that too is now headed to charity for the same reason, also still looking great after 8 years.It is currently snowing, +3F with -15 windchill and I've warn the Lhotse sytem out three times, two short outings and once for about a half hour while shoveling. Because it is so much lighter than the Gizzmo, I had doubts that it would be as comfortable in these colder temperatures we see around Minneapolis in the winter, but so far I am impressed. I hope it continues to impress me and that it will prove as durable as my two previous Columbia coat systems. If it does prove to be up to the challenge, I'll be back to up my ratings on the coat.Nits-and-picks: The shell hand pockets are a little higher than I am used to, but they are nice and deep and made of a soft micro-fleece so are warm to the bare hand. Though I went up a size from my previous two coats, the waistline is only slightly larger than the others. The previous two coats had the name of the coat embroidered on the back of the collar (you don't think I remembered those coat names did you?), a classy touch. Not so with the Lhotse...guess the few cents it cost to embroider the name was too big a hit to the company bottom line. January 20, 2014
Zipper Issues Bought this coat for my boyfriend for Christmas. He was so excited when he saw it. When he put it on the zipper under the arm got caught on the material (zipper was small) and we could not get it undone. Disappointed, I sent it back ;o( January 18, 2014
I must say, that for my money, this is the best jacket hands down. A little backround about myself. 20 years ago my buds got the bright Idea to hike to the top of Mount Whitney, the highest mountain in the lower 48. With that, we needed gear, so I had purchased a 3 layer Gore-Tex shell. At that time I had no idea how much I would use a water proof/replant jacket. Since that purchase I have used it to hunt, fish, and backpack to the highest points in 9 states and have stayed very dry in the wettest conditions. It poured rained for 3 straight days in the high sierras and we stayed dry.It is now time for a refresh, as my old jacket is wetting out bad and the seam tape is coming out.So the replacement jacket hunt had begun. I found this Columbia Lhotse jacket/parka after I had researched many Jackets including many big name brands. I must say, that for my money, this is the best jacket hands down.I have worn this jacket driving down the interstate at 70mph in 26 Degree weather with my left arm out the window. I must say that for 6 miles I did not get cold. Chilly, yes, but I would expect that. I was wearing a T-Shirt and a dress shirt (I was going to work) under the jacket only, needless to say I was impressed with this jackets ability to keep the cold and very important, the wind out. I had paired this jacket with Columbia gloves and liners. The gloves performed well in keeping the wind out, however, I did notice that the tips of my fingers were getting chilly much quicker than my arm and would probably have gotten cold if i had exposed them for longer than the 6 miles. I have also performed this test the next day(24 degrees), paired with Spyder liners and Marmot gloves with great success, hands did not get chilly at all. I have not had the opportunity to give the jacket or gloves a waterproof test as of yet, but I will, and provide feed back when that is complete (I fully expect great results).We are going on a 4 day snowmobile trip in Feb 2014, and I cannot wait to expose this jacket to the mountain elements in northern PA.I also must mention the interchange system, this is nothing short of brilliant. I have a lighter Columbia Jacket that zips right in to give greater flexibility to meet the conditions of the weather and outdoor activities we enjoy, or you can wear it as a shell only.The omni-heat technology and insulated liner are a great pair to ensure warmth, while allowing moisture to escape from your body.I must also mention that the jacket is very much backpack friendly with the high pockets and arm pit zips.My colors, in our circle (long Story about selecting colors with my buds) are Green and Black, the dark backcountry colors are exactly what I was looking for.Okay, so here is what I do not like about the jacket.1. They run small. I wear a 17x33x34 shirt, my jacket size is 40 regular. I tried the large on and felt constrained across the shoulders so I bought the XL, which will also allow a few extra layers if need in extreme cold. With that said,2. the hood is a little large due to the size of the jacket, however it is removable so this should not be a big deal, and will provide added space when wearing a helmet while ice or rock climbing.3. The drawstring release buttons and zippers need to be larger so you can manipulate them with larger gloves on. I will be adding some larger pull cords to the zippers.4. Generally, the media pocket has a whole for your head phones cord, I cannot find the whole in the liner for this. (maybe I just am missing it)5. The parka is a little noisy while moving. I wear a shell with a 2xl camo hooded sweatshirt over it to hunt in, and this may be a little loud while hunting, we will see.So as of right now I am extremely happy with this jacket, I hope when we get into the back country of PA this parka performs as well as I expect it to. I will post back after I have had it in the elements for several days.As of right now, I would highly recommend this parka and expect to get many years of service out of it.I hope this helps you decide if the jacket is something you would purchase, as I have read many many reviews of all brands of jackets and again, for my money, this is the best.I gave the jacket a 5 out 5 for quality as this jacket is very well made, and 4 out 5 on the function as I have not tested the waterproof capabilities and the small zippers and drawstring release buttons. January 17, 2014
Good all Rounder Nice fit and good hand. Size is great with sleeve length a perfect match for my arms. Usually wear a 35" shirt sleeve. Color is great and liner is a nice warmer weather jacket. January 15, 2014
This product is wonderful . I bought this jacket for my son, he was impress he wore only at shirt and his boxers, he was never cold. January 13, 2014
Gift I bought this jacket for my son for Christmas. He loved it but was so disappointed that it was too snug in the arms. He wears a large and that is the size I bought. I will be exchanging it for a X-large, hopefully it won't be too big. December 24, 2013
Tons of Features Things I like:sleeve cuff on liner keeps out drafts and snowhigh pockets allow rain to drip from elbows instead of ending up in pocketsexcellent hood cinchhood folds back to give better visibilitypowder skirt can be fastened, or not, both with solid heavy duty buttonsabsolutely water tightlow bulk but very warmsoft collarbutton at top of zipper to hold it closed when fully zippedI can't recommend this jacket enough. December 22, 2013
Excellent Got this jacket and left for a ski trip at Sugarbush VT with temperatures that fluctuated between -14 and 20 degrees Fahrenheit with some snow on the warmer day.The jacket kept me warm, dry and was lightweight. Not sure there is much more I can ask for. December 19, 2013
Warm jacket This jacket keeps me warm in snowing and windy weather. It's great. December 17, 2013
Good Product This jacket is a decent product and I have tested it in about 10 degree and it keeps you warm when you have activity, like walking. If you just stand in cold weather (Like in bus stop, waiting for bus), it'll still be a good insulated jacket but you will slowly feel the cold weather. The main advantage compared to jackets in the same range from other brands is that, it doesn't make you sweat when you are inside, but when you are outside, I have expirienced better quality of insulation from other brands.The water-proofness is really awesome and keeps you completely dry.Unlike other products from Columbia, which are smaller than size, it is true to size. December 15, 2013
So far so good.. I've had this jacket for about a week now, and it's been pretty good so far. It's the first winter jacket I've owned in a while, so it seemed a bit bulky at first, but I've been told it adds some width to my skinniness (in a good way!).I really like the 2-layer design, especially because the inside layer actually looks pretty good. I've seen/owned some jackets where the inside layer is just ugly and so basically (for me) renders the separation useless. But, this one is great so far.Also, I got this for a really good deal. 25% off for the holidays, plus the $30 GC and another $20 from amex, bringing it down to about 150. I don't think I would pay more than 200 for it, however. December 15, 2013
Great deal Excellent product keep me warm during the winter snowing day,i would definitely recommend this jacket. December 15, 2013
4.5 out of 5 stars The hand warmer pockets need to have a warmer lining as well as the arms. The back the arms got chilled, on very bitter winter day, while wearing a short sleeve shirt. Overall the jacket preformed well, it was a gift for my wife who is a veteran Columbia jacket owner and I do listen her complaints on occasion. Rob December 15, 2013
Great winter coat Bought this for my husband and he LOVES it. We have been having below normal temps 10 and lower and he is staying warm.He has a very hard time staying warm and this jacket is doing the job. He has always had a Columbia jacket which have been great but this omni heat is the best!Thanks Columbia keep up the great work. Plus I got it on sale for 60.00 less than asking. December 13, 2013
Excellent Coat I am amazed by how toasty and comfortable this is, like putting on a warm duvet. The overall build quality is excellent; well-worth the price.I tell everyone who sees me in it how warm it is. December 9, 2013
Warm as Needed Purchased this jacket for use in German winters. Winter climate here tends to be cold and wet with frequent snow so a warm, weather-proof jacket was needed. After two weeks of use, I can say that the jacket keeps me as warm as needed. When I've gotten cold, it was a lack of other insulating gear not the jacket. Likewise, I haven't overheated despite several miles of hiking with moderate loads (~30lbs). This jacket, like most Columbia products, is extremely well made with quality fabrics that are functional and durable. I have only two complaints with it. One, the main zipper is a bit small and does not have a lanyard to find it quickly. No problem unless I'm wearing gloves so it loses a bit in the function category. Two, the jacket is a bit snug for me in the shoulders - particularly in the arm pit area. This is likely because I have an athletic build so the fit is my frame more than the jacket. Nevertheless, a bit of extra room in the upper sleeves would make it perfect. The jacket fits perfectly everywhere else. December 9, 2013
-7ºF outside, real feel temp -18ºF Clear night and VERY HAPPY! Just got this product and could not be happier. Was surprised with how light the jacket was didn't think it would hold up. Did the only thing you can do and put it to the test with the freezing weather outside. It held up better than I could have imagined with just a cotton T-shirt underneath. The only thing that got cold was the legs but the top half was indescribably comfortable.The coat feels snug but moves surprisingly well for how it feels. I also prefer looser fitting clothes so may not be used to the fit. December 7, 2013
Great Jacket Light, Heavy duty, fits well. December 6, 2013
Truly Warm and Lightweight This coat is as advertized. Very warm and lightweight. I agree with previous reviews that the pockets are a little high to place your hands in and the main coat zipper is very small with to additional connected pull but overall this is a solid purchase that you will not regret.The coat is both extremely lightweight for the warmth it provides and is not overwhelming when worn inside for short periods of time.If I needed to but another coat I would consider a second purchase of this same coat due to the features and the quality. December 5, 2013
Great jacket Bought this for my son and was initially alarmed because it felt so LIGHT. It's extremely warm and I'm very pleased because he already has to carry so many things to school, I'm glad he doesn't have a bulky coat. This is well made, extremely warm (Chicago winters) and he loved the look and fit. December 2, 2013
Lhotse ll Interchange Jacket I purchased this jacket for my 21 year old Grandson and he said he loves it and it is the warmest jacket he has ever had. November 27, 2013
It is great! I like it! It is a good product, hopefully it will keep me warm in the Minnesota winter. November 20, 2013
Overall, great product! It is truly amazing.. it is going to keep you dry and warm from the cold rainy days.I no longer need to wear thick clothes inside of my jacket!I went out with a short sleeve shirt inside the jacket for 5 minutes and it protected me 100% from rain and cold weather. November 18, 2013
This product lives up to it's name I was in the need of a new winter jacket and this has really worked out well so far. Great fit, and stylish, but built for the cold weather. The interior liner jacket is nice for those fall days as well. I also like how the hood is constructed, not too big. Very please so far. November 18, 2013
Love this coat! I love the quality and build of this coat. There are several pockets for things such as cell phones and keys. The way it holds body heat is incredible! It kept me nice and toasty even after being in 25 degree weather for over and hour. If you're looking for a good winter coat, I highly recommend this one. November 13, 2013
Very Promising Jacket Was a little unsure of the extra details that this coat had emphasized (ex.omniheat), as i thought it was just a marketing feature. But it turns out the coat works like a charm. Its a little snug but nonetheless performs well! I really admire the technology of this jacket,which REALLY shows under cold weather. Whats amazing is that the jacket doesn't overload you with heat as most jackets aim to do with colder weather. What the jacket does is maintain a comfortable temperature despite how cold it gets. Its very breathable and you are virtually unaffected by low temperature. This feature is something that I have never experienced before and am impressed each day by as i commute to the chilly city. All in all, the jacket is highly effective and sets out to accomplish all the things that a good high quality jacket should. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering getting this. Its is also very stylish which is a big bonus for me. November 12, 2013
Lhotse Mtn. 2 Been wearing this interchange around for the last couple of weeks now. I'm a big fan of the versatility of this combo. The insulated inner layer retains off more than enough warmth by itself for days in the 40s and 50s. It was snowing out this morning, so I wore the full combo -- definitely warm enough to get down into any temperature I'll experience with a fleece on underneath.My only criticism is that the jacket's main zipper doesn't have an elastic cord attached to it. It's a little annoying having to fumble for your zipper when you've got a pair of thick gloves on.Would definitely recommend. November 12, 2013
Exactly what I was looking for! I was looking for a new winter coat, and after extensive comparison shopping settled on the Lhotse Mountain II. To make a long story short, it's perfect. I commute in the city of Chicago, and I have to contend with unpredictable combinations of wind and precipitation for the majority of the year. So far I've only worn it during Fall weather (40-50 degrees), but here's a brief summary of my observations thus far:- It's dry. I was recently rained on during my entire commute and the water beaded up and brushed off easily. I can't vouch for its integrity in an extended downpour, but it handled a typical November rainstorm flawlessly. The hood is just a bit shallow, but proved sufficient for keeping rain off my face.- It's warm. I haven't had the opportunity to pit it against Chicago's infamous winter yet, but on a wet and blustery November day it kept me perfectly comfortable. The liner in particular is quite toasty, even on its own.- It breathes. When switching between warm, dry interiors and the much colder and wetter weather outside, the coat regulated my body heat remarkably well. I was quite comfortable even in well-heated interiors. The shell by itself makes an excellent rain jacket or wind breaker and is light and cool enough to use even in warmer weather.- It looks great. I have an average build at 5' 11" and about 175 pounds and the medium fit me perfectly; the coat is a fairly trim fit, so if you expect to layer heavily under the provided liner you might want a size larger. Both the liner and the shell have a great fit with simple, clean lines.Overall, the coat showcases good attention to details and seems to be made with high quality materials. I've been very happy with my purchase! November 5, 2013
awesome jacket and great features My son purchased his first jacket from Columbia store 16 yrs. ago and just now needed another. Wonderful products. November 4, 2013
Awesome I have an old (like 18 years old) Bugaboo that is finally on its last leg. The color and fit, of course, are now very "90's" as well. I decided to look for a new one and came across the Lhotse Mountain™ II Interchange Jacket. I could not be happier with it! The old Columbia stuff was good way back when, but this is a whole new level of good. Lightweight, VERY warm, functional, comfortable, and attractive. I was pretty sure back in the 90's, and now I am positive, that I will never own a winter coat by any other maker. October 31, 2013
Fantastic Cold Weather Jacket I bought this jacket for my son. We do many cold weather sports including sub zero snowmobiling. While we have not had the chance to try it out yet in freezing temps my son said the jacket is awesome and he has NEVER had a warmer coat! He loves it. CAUTION: THEY RUN SMALL! My son is a very trim Medium and he needed a large. October 23, 2013
i love this jacket very light and warm. and good quality October 10, 2013
My last Jacket lasted 25 years Love Columbia I wouldn't wear anything else. October 9, 2013
The Best I have Found. I wear a large everything, but Columbia is tricky... This combo has been the best one to satisfy what I've been looking for. I have worn the liner more than the combo and would have paid the same price just for it. The rest of the interchange is just icing on the cake. April 14, 2013
Small across the back/shoulders The jacket was everything I was looking for with the technologies Omni-heat, Omni-shield. The jacket is very warm. I get cold easy and wanted a heavier jacket. While shoveling snow, I had to zip it open a little and a little more and finally had it fully unzipped--it is awesome. I even fully opened the armpit vents. The pockets are roomy and I like the idea of the interchange (a specific feature for me). I went to a sporting goods store (when first shopping for a Columbia coat) to try the various sizes and the XL was too big, so I decided to buy the L. The large was sized better for me in all respects--I had tried on the Whirlibird II. I had been looking at the Whirlibird II initially but I didn't like the styling--the only color left was bright red. I went home and bought online and when comparing features and the technologies, I bought the Lhotse. The only problem for me is that the jacket is too tight across the back and shoulders when I bring my arms forward and across the chest. If memory serves well I wear a 42R suit coat. I don't have a big chest but my shoulders are broad. The bind in the back/shoulders is not much but I can feel it restrict my movement a little. Unfortunately they did not have the Lhotse in stock at the sporting goods store (end of season). I don't know if I would have noticed a difference in the store because I figured the large of most any jacket would be a similar fit in other models (as also indicated by the sizing chart on Columbia's website)--I fit the Large category. Otherwise, the jacket is outstanding; the features, pockets, and construction sold me on this model. I did a side by side comparison of several of their insulated and interchange jackets. This one had all the features I was looking for and basically had all the features of the other jackets. April 1, 2013
