Get serious about your mountains with the Mountain Equipment Men's Lhotse Jacket. This jacket, like the Himalayan mountain it's named after, is for men not for boys.
When you're out on the edge, it mind, body and equipment. The first two only you can control, let the Mountain Equipment Men's Lhotse Jacket influence the third. Here's how;
A combination of 3 layer GTX Pro 40D and 80D fabric provides complete weather protection; waterproof, windproof, and of course the best breathability of any hard shell textile. The mix of 40 denier and 80 denier ensures maximum resilience where you need it most with minimum weight and bulk in less exposed areas.
The dual tether hem drawcords allow you to adjust either just the back section or the front panels independently, and more importantly it means there are no dangling loops of cord to catch your ice axe or crampons on.
Your muscular physic is enhanced with the tapering form of the jacket that also includes articulated pre shaped sleeves for comfort and easy reaching as you attack Gulley Five on the north face of Ben Nevis.
If you want to see where you're going a good hood is essential and Mountain Equipment have been unstinting here, with a helmet compatible hood that is fully adjustable and with easy reach cinch cords that stay out of harms way.
Three exterior pockets all reside above your harness line and are generously sized for thick mitts or a map in your Napoleon pocket. They are all fitted with moulded Aquaguard zips and are highly developed internally such that any water that does manage to get thru quickly drains away to the bottom of the zip.
Large 2 way YKK moulded Aquaguard front zip has an internal storm flap with press studs top and bottom.
The cuffs have a large area of velcro, so you can be sure they'll stick even when snow and ice are trying to clog them up. Adjustable, they are wide enough to take a high insulation glove cuff or wrap around a narrow gloveless wrist.
Man didn't put footprints on the moon by using a second rate rocket. Where ever you want to put your feet, it's more likely to happen with first rate gear. Mountain Equipment make exactly what their name suggests, no gimmicks, just well thought out, well specified, well manufactured equipment for mountain men.
