Columbia Lhotse Mountain II Interchange Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $143
A good winter coat.
- Well made
- Side pockets are too high
- Velcro on front zipper
This is a warm and attractive winter coat. I am 6'0", 185 lbs, 43.5" chest, 34" sleeve, and the large fits me perfectly. The liner comes out and can be used for a jacket. It seems to be well made, and is quite comfortable. I got it for skiing, and although I haven't gone yet, I think it will do quite well.
I'm not a huge fan of the velcro that seals the front zipper, snaps probably work better. Also, the side pockets are strangely too high, which makes no sense. But those two complaints are minor.
