Adventures at altitude require awesome protection from the weather and the versatility to be ready for pretty much anything. The Columbia Lhotse Mountain II Interchange Parka delivers serious protection for intense experiences above the tree line. This three-in-one system includes a burly outer shell with Omni-Tech technology to shield you from the elements and a zip-in liner jacket with Omni-Heat tech and synthetic insulation.

  • Omni-Tech membrane seals out moisture while remaining breathable
  • 20k-rated fabric means you'll stay dry even in heavy, wet snow, while fully taped seams keep droplets from sneaking in through the cracks
  • Omni-Heat reflective lining in the removable jacket keeps your body heat where you need it
  • Insulation made with recycled polyester holds warmth in and is easier on the environment
  • Underarm vents get rid of swampy air when your internal engines start churning out heat
  • Removable, adjustable hood keeps your head warm until you ditch it for around-town wear
  • Snap-back powder skirt can be deployed to keep snow out when you're skiing in the deep stuff
  • Adjustable cuffs prevent snow and cold air from sliding up your sleeves
  • Interchange system with zip-in functionality means you can wear just the shell, just the liner, or both
  • Plenty of pocket space including a media and goggle pocket make it easier to haul your essentials

Warm and versatile

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit:True to size

I bought this as a gift for my Dad, and he loves it! He likes how he can wear the 2 coats together, or each on their own for different situations. He really likes how the insulated layer has the wrist gaiters, and claims that they really make a difference! The only thing he has said could be better is the placement of the hand pockets, they are a little too high to be super comfortable to leave your hands in.

Fit issues with product in arm areas

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:Runs small

5'8" 150lbs. Tried two sizes of this product, M & L. I wear M size on all coats and this one is no exception. The issue I had with the coat in both the M & L sizes is that it fits real snug in the armpit areas (it felt creepy to the point I couldn't wear the jacket). I tried it with a long sleeve shirt and just a summer t-shirt but had the same experience. I usually like my clothing a little loose fitting so I imagine if you like slim fitting clothes (the kind that look like their painted on), then the jacket wouldn't bother you. I really liked the jacket otherwise for the colors and technology but couldn't get over the fit issue.

I ABSOLUTELY agree! I am shorter, 5'5", but have an athletic build. I found the M (which is nearly always a perfect fit) tight in my shoulders and was constricting when I'd reach forward with my arms. I was only wearing a single, long-sleeved, medium-weight shirt when I tried it on, too. The L fit as expected for a M, but was like a dress on my shorter frame (too long). Otherwise, everything about the jacket was amazing: Great materials, excellent warmth, etc. This is an EPIC fail from Columbia. Sad too, because this is the best jacket out there material-wise, in my opinion. FAIL.

Great jacket, just a little small.

This jacket is beautiful. I ordered per the sheet measurements, but I was afraid it would be to small (I'm 5'11 and 185 lbs) in the medium. It was, but just barely. I'm looking forward to trying the large out when it comes in the middle of winter. That will be the true test. I go to and from work in subzero temperatures and would really like a jacket that keeps me toasty. More to come...


    I was hesitant about buying this jacket, but was very surprised at how well it worked. Purchased it as a daily wearer for midwest winters and I am pleasantly surprised. I most cases I can venture out with only a t-shirt underneath. My only complaint would be the placement of the pockets...they seem a bit too high to be comfortable. If you have a slightly disproportionate wingspan (5'9" tall vs. 6'1"wingspan) it may become annoying to reach "up" into the pockets. Overall a good jacket that keeps me warm...
