Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features. The 3 in 1 jacket is perfectly designed for all types of weather including spring rains, changing weather conditions in the fall, and the coldest weather in the winter. I highly recommend this jacket! July 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just plain awesome First off, Columbia has one of the best customer services. They stand by their products (this coat was a warranty replacement). Second, the coat offered just what I needed: something that was warm and dry. I love the soft fabric inside the pockets. I wear a 42 slim and the large fits perfectly. April 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent jacket I have ordered this jacket in color MARINE BLUE, COLLEGIATE NAVY for my dad and he loved it. The color is brighter in comparison to the picture above, the jacket is very light and comfy. April 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warranty replacement coat. My coat ripped on the left cuff and the zipper broke mid-winter. I mailed it in and received a credit from Columbia to buy a new coat of its web page. It was a generous amount. I have no complaints. However, realize this is not a fast process. April 18, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by no wow factor Online purchase is a very bad idea. It was large, even for M. Quality wasnot of 140$(thanks Lord, not the real 240$). If i am given the chance to return it, i will. my last columbia experience was terrific. This time, it was disappointing. March 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best jacket I've ever owned! This men's Lhotse II Interchange Jacket is a super-good-looking coat! Very handsome, and superior quality. There is one downside (FOR ME).........I have very short arms, so the sleeves are uncomfortably long on me. The Velcro fasteners at the wrist help some, but still not perfect (a high quality knit cuff works best for me). But I can put up with that. I bought it after the worst of the winter weather, but am totally confident that it will perform extremely well in the worst of any winter weather. And the interchangeable features make this a jacket adaptable to all weather from cool to deep-freeze frigid. March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent, versatile jacket! After much research, i found the perfect 3-in-1 jacket! March 12, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Just ok I got this to replace a 6-7 year old whirlibird that I loved. Got this jacket in the same LT size as my old jacket and this one is huge. The sleeves run well beyond my knuckles and the design on the sleeve cuff does not allow my to cinch the sleeve tight enough to keep them at my wrists. My old jacket had elastic on the cuffs with a Velcro strap. This just has the Velcro. The result it similar to boot cut jeans. The sleeves are not tapered at all. I ended up returning the jacket at my shipping expense which is unfortunate because I cannot find a store that carries tall sizes locally, so I have to order it online. Even though I ordered the same size from the same manufacturer as my old jacket, this did not fit so it is my fault and I have to eat the shipping costs. I didn't try the new whirlibird because I don't want to have to eat another $15 shipping if it does not fit. March 6, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Returned twice I bought this jacket for my first winter in Chicago and I was so happy with it but within one month the zipper had fallen apart. I liked the style of the jacket so I returned it for a replacement. About 1.5 months later the same thing happened to the zipper on the second coat so I returned it for a refund. Someone else mentioned that their arms were cold when wearing this jacket and mine were too. My arms never felt super warm but my body was oftentimes was too warm. I thought this was to be expected but I do not have this issue with the new coat I purchased from a different company. Also: The sleeves fit fine but I found the body of the coat to be rather snug. March 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Color name is misleading Everblue and Nightshadow are green and green. I thought I was ordering two shades of blue. The jacket is great but I never would have ordered a green one had I known. March 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fairly Light weight but WARM I bought this looking for a warm but not heavy coat. Since I live in Arkansas I don't need down but still need something warm for those 20 degree days with wind. I wanted a coat with a hood to shield me from those windy cold days. This coat has met or exceeded all expectations. It is light, warm and has plenty of storage pockets. It is a little bit small, but I am fat. I wouldn't get a larger size. February 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quality and Versatility Love this coat......have been looking all season for something that has warmth but also the ability to have a zip out to wear when its not so cold. The womens coats are cut too small for us full figured gals so this is the perfect solution! Thanks Columbia for providing choices and great products. February 24, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cold in MN COLD in sleeves! Way too cold! February 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good ski jacket Bought this for my son for christmas. He is 6'1" and 170 Bought a large. Fits him well. Omni shield is a nice feature and the liner is a nice jacket for something lighter. February 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Needs 2-Way Zipper I purchased this jacket online and I really like the fit and color, and it seems well made. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a 2-way double zipper so you can unzip part way up from the bottom. It would be more comfortable when wearing it while driving if it had that feature. February 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for cold wet weather This is a great product. It is pretty much true to size. I'm 5"11", 165 of average build and wear a large. It is has been plenty warm this winter where temps have sometimes been in the 20's and teens. I owned a Columbia jacket in the 90's and wasn't impressed. However, they have greatly improved. February 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Jacket This is the third Columbia jacket I have owned. I really have no reason to switch to another brand. The jackets are durable and warm. I've never had a problem with their products. No rips, tears or failures. I like that this specific jacket has the outer waterproof shell and the inner jacket, it's basically two jackets in one. I also like that the hood is removable. February 14, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mixed feelings I don't dislike the jacket but I don't absolutely love it either. For starters, it's kinda heavy and definitely feels like you're wearing 2 jackets. Also, it got pretty cold this weekend, below zero wind chill. I didn't feel that warm walking around, which was somewhat surprising given all the "technology" put in to the coat. I purchased this jacket to replace a 6-7 yr old (competitors) jacket that was starting to develop a tear. I feel the old jacket keeps me better insulated. The size chart is fairly accurate. I am 6'2", 210# and the large is the right fit for me. The jacket looks pretty good and I like the flexibility of the 3 coats since it has potential to get a lot of use in Chicago seasonal weather as well as a functional travel jacket. I just thought I'd feel warmer walking around when the temp was below freezing. February 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really Warm Yet Very Light I'm really impressed with this jacket. In WI we have some bitterly cold days with -25 degree windchill. The Omniheat in the jacket works as advertised. You stay warm, even on the coldest of days. This jacket will easily and naturally become your favorite, as you stay toasty warm and dry through bitter cold. Yet, when the weather warms up you can this jacket through 3 seasons. February 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men Lhotse ll I love the feeling of the coat fits the size perfectly for this New York weather . February 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Jacket--could use some tweaks I was looking for a parka-length 3-in-1 jacket. So far, so good. I wear a size "large" across most brands. The jacket fits; however, there is no room for layering underneath. Layering will be necessary for cold temps, unless you are very active and generate a lot of body heat. Overall, if the jacket were slightly larger, had slightly more insulation, more pockets, and a two-way zipper it would be just about perfect. February 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Only one major detail & 1 minor gripe Love this color combo on the green/dark green. Jacket is super warm. Fit is true to size. Cons: Hood is TOO SHORT, if it is remotely windy during a rainy day, it would just about render this hood as almost useless. PLUS, it offers zero warmth. 2. Only the chest zipper pocket is waterproof. The lower pockets for the hands are not, but they have a 1/4" flap overlapping the zipper. It is my 2nd favorite jacket. February 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Right On The Money I was looking for a great winter coat and this surpassed my greatest expectations. I not only love it but all my friends do too. I would highly recommend this coat to anyone. Five stars!!! February 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than you think! This jacket is far superior to others I have tried. It keeps you warm and dry and has many different functions. I like how the pockets are fleece lined. I have only had it for about a week. However,I used the liner for a bike ride I take to get to school early in the mornings. It was ~ 20 degrees F, very windy and the liner kept my upper body much warmer than any other biker wear I have. Great purchase and great price. I could have easily paid twice for this quality jacket with other vendors. February 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible jacket for an incredible price This jacket screams quality. I bought it to replace my off-brand winter jacket, and they are incomparable. The omni-heat keeps me warm, the outer shell keeps me dry. It works as well or maybe even a bit better than I thought it would., but it runs a tad larger than I would like. Highly recommended though. February 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket, but cut very larger The jacket is great, but it is cut very large. The Mens small is too large on me (I am 5' 7" and not terrifically slim). But I went to the store and found a womens version of the same jacket in large. It is cut and designed identically and is working very well! January 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just one thing I would change I really like the looks of this coat. The warmth of the coat is amazing. I probably will take the liner out unless it is really cold. It is a little longer than I like, which makes it difficult to sit in the car with the coat zipped up. What would really make this a GREAT coat is if it had a zipper that would reverse from the bottom so you could sit down easier. January 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very, very good! This jacket fits perfectly and keeps me nice and warm on our cold days in NW Ohio. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great winter coat I've had this coat for about two weeks now and I am thrilled with it. The versatility in making it any of the three options is ideal for changing winter weather conditions and it is an extremely warm coat to wear during cold weather/snow conditions. I love the inside coat as well, it's pretty easy to zip out of the outer shell and its good looking and warm by itself. My one critique of the coat is the hood. The hood isn't as warm as I wish it was and it is fairly vision-restricting when cinched down on your head. Other than that minor detail, I'm thrilled with the coat! January 24, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bad description Description says runs small, so ordered an XL - I wear all XL shirts as well. However, got the coat today and it's much too big. Going on an ice fishing trip tomorrow so paid for overnight delivery - huge disappointment. Coat seems nice, but online description when ordering clothing has to be taken into consideration. January 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not what i thought. i received the jacket on time. but, it is not what i requested i checked on time the from the jacket. the logo is missing in the back it fits a little big and the logo in the arm looks like a sticker that is just placed on. i am planning to go and return it to the store. really i thought because buying from the company it would be good. January 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product l really love this product. Note:Yesterday I saw the price was $179 so it is expensive to me. Today I go to store and the price is $144 before tax. Make sure you check the store price! January 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mens to Lhotse II My son is allergic to down,and we've been looking for a jacket that is warm. The jacket overall is good but he can't wear the liner alone because it runs small whereas the outer shell runs true to size. Overall it serves it's purpose January 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket Excellent jacket..... I'm a hard sell. I was pleasantly surprised when I wore it outside in 8degree temp with wind... I live by a river.... Always windy...... The only thing that got cold was my face. You won't be disappointed.... P.S. I'm not a thrill seeker.Just outside alot January 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 Season Hiker/Walker In my home state of Michigan, I hike all four seasons. I have been in wind, rain & snow conditions and this coat keeps me dry & warm. I bought it specifically for hiking/walking this winter season; but with the rain proof shell & inner jacket; I will also be using it this Spring & Fall. I had a pair of Omni-Heat gloves which sold me on getting a coat with this. There are many pockets to hold your gear, phone, wallet, etc. a hood and many drawcords to keep the weather out. I am 5' 10" at 175 lbs and bought a black extra large. I strongly recommend this quality made coat for anyone; any season. January 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by i like it, but be aware that sizes do run large The medium fits like a large. I originally bought a "large" since reviews said the jacket ran true to size and I normally wear jackets in "large". No way, it had room for at least 6-8 layers or a second person. Traded it in for a "medium" and it fits almost perfect. A wee bit tight under the arms with a couple thick layers on, but there is still plenty of flexibility for movement. I'd rather it be a bit snug than feel like I'm wearing a whole down comforter. This jacket is a great choice for mixed use. Was able to walk about a mile in ~40F with just a t-shirt on under, and easily handled ~20F with a shirt and sweater on under it. January 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 and 1 Wore it during Christmas week in Chicago and it performed better than I expected. Was excellent at repelling rain and snow and kept me warm while walking downtown Chicago. Would definitely buy again. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket I did a lot of research before buying a winter jacket and it paid off. This jacket is versatile and is great for New England winters. I found that it is perfect for outdoor conditions and will need to be removed for car rides over a half an hour. Can't ask for a better option. December 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Need Tall Options I ordered this coat for my husband who is 6'4" and a sleeve length of 36/37. The sleeve and body length are too short. Wishing there was a tall size option. Can you please start making tall sizes in a variety of jackets? Please carry TALL sizes! December 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great I purchased two of theese coats one in black and one in red for gifts for my fiance and his brother i gave them both of them a little early and they love them tge fit is great and both say there so warm and love the 3 in 1 so id say amazing product and good price point December 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight Yet Very Warm I love this coat. It is superbly made. Lives up to the company motto "Tested Tough." Being lightweight I don't feel smothered by the coat yet it keeps me plenty warm enough. I also love the versatility of 3 different ways to wear it. What a great design! December 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good goods It's suitable for outdoor during cold weather. December 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs large, not small A lot of reviews indicate this jacket runs small. I found it to be quite the opposite! I am 6'3", 185 lbs and the SMALL has room to spare. That's right: I got the small. The jacket is still plenty long for my tall frame. December 9, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by If you like Velcro, It's fine Bought this jacket for my husband and he told me to send it back. He wanted nothing to do with the Velcro. The Velcro aside, it was a nice jacket, but not like the jacket we purchased for him in early 2000's. That jacket had hand-warmer pockets in addition to hand pockets at the hips. He really likes that jacket. Columbia: GO BACK TO SNAPS INSTEAD OF VELCRO!!!!!!! December 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Jacket We haven't had any rain yet, but we've had snow and wind storms, I was very happy with the performance of the jacket. December 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great versatility perfect jacket, just enough style to feel comfortable and the inner/outer combo makes for great multiple season use! justtt allitle expensive November 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A better jacket than the Whirlibird I owned the Whirlibird for a couple of years and it has this design flaw where the material of the sleeve starts rubbing against the zipper of the pockets when you put your hands into them. The material rips open. I was able to return the jacket because of Columbia's great Lifetime Warranty. I choose the Lhotse as an exchange and I can alsready see that it is a better jacket. The material that the outer shell is made from is 100% nylon Omni-Shield Double Ripstop which is a smooth fabric and it will not rip from the zippers. The Whirlibird's outer shell is made of Twill and is a lot more susceptible to rips in addition I also think it lets moisture through a lot easier. Also, the sizing of the two jackets is different. The large Whirlibird was tight and I had problems just putting gloves into the pockets. It ran really small. The Lhotse is a good size large. There is a lot extra space and I dont have issues with putting gloves into the pockets. I'm 5'9" and 212 lbs. November 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fit I'm 5' 7" 160 lbs. I bought a medium. The coat is great. It keeps me warm. It fits me perfectly where I can wear something under it and it is not too heavy. I bike in Brooklyn and it is perfect. It's bright enough for the cars to see me. April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Beast in the East With this year's rugged winter (some would call it Brew-TALL) I realized a jacket with a face in the name was not enough. I tried on the Lhotse in a store in New England, and loved it on first trial. The color I wanted however, was unavailable. Not to worry. The unbelievable folks at Columbia searched for stores that had my size and an alternate color - and got it done in a matter of hours. What a company - what a jacket. Versatile, stylish, warm. What more can you ask for! Great on all counts. March 26, 2015
