Skip the DC Fantastic. I love it.

jcar702 I bought this jacket because I was going to start a journey of hiking and didnt want to get caught without the right gear. I used this jacket at 12000 ft elevation and it performed very good. The Omni-Heat feature is great feature and it met my expectations. I have used this in cold weather, light rain so far. There are many zippers for storage. I have had other jackets but this is best one of them all. I looked at Glacier-to-Glade 3-1 and found it to fit smaller on me and it doesn't have Omni-Heat.

The only thing that this jacket doesn't have is waterproof zipper on the easy accesible zipper but this wasn't a problem so far.

rohank4284 Overall, I really like this jacket, it's very warm in winter and it's pretty lightweight for being a heavy winter jacket. Columbia's omni-heat lining is very good and does keep you a lot warmer than other jackets. The water-proof shell is fantastic, the jacket was drenched on the outside, but I was completely dry on the inside. A big improvement over the "water-resistant" jackets, where you can sometimes feel the water seep through during heavy storms. The design of the Lhotse jacket is pretty basic, but the colors work well togehter and it's looks pretty stylish. The one thing I found odd were all of the zippers Columbia put on this jacket. I don't see the need for such large hand pockets and the underarm zippers seem odd, it just makes the jacket feel tight. The sizing is off, so make sure you go one size larger than you normally would, for instance, go with an XL, if you normally wear large. The Columbia Lthose jacket isn't perfect, but it's a very good jacket and I would recommend it.

Matt This is one of Columbias higher-end 3-in-1 shells, part of the Titanium line. It is very solidly constructed of their Omni-Tech material (basically, off-brand Gore-Tex), and has fully taped seams (so it should be VERY waterproof, but still very breathable.) The material feels somewhat heavier than on their cheaper shells, so it will probably be more windproof, a little warmer, and last longer. It has a snap-back powder skirt and pit zips, and a waterproof zippered chest pocket. The hood actually *zips* on, unlike the cheaper Columbia shells that only use snaps/velcro, so if you like to use the hood thats a big plus. The zip-in liner also seemed to be a little higher-grade than on the other shells, but I didnt care much for the styling. This uses the standard Columbia Interchange System for the zip-in liner, so you could substitute in any matching liner. (Also, as with other Columbia shells, you lose access to the powder skirt and all the internal pockets when the liner is zipped in. I actually prefer not zipping the liner into the shell when wearing both.)I had two problems with this shell:1) I wanted it in a tall size (Backcountry doesnt carry this, but some other sites do), and the tall version comes in any color you want -- as long as its solid black. I dont normally care too much about how my gear looks, but since I also have solid black ski pants, and a black helmet, Id be rocking the Darth Vader black-on-black-on-black look. Thats pushing it. :-/2) Inexplicably, the XL Tall size of this jacket fit differently through the shoulders/upper body than the other two Columbia shells I tried in the same size (the Whirlibird and Bugaboo models). Those two fit great; this one was tight on me through the shoulders and upper chest.

BarbaricBoulderingBeast I just came back from a 4 day trip to Joshua Tree for climbing... The temperatures on the first night were about 20.F and this jacket kept me pretty warm. I have to say that I was partly skeptical about the the new Omni-Heat insulation lining the secondary jacket but, to my surprise it is very functional, not just a gimick. The first night was well below freezing and my body was pretty warm. On another day we were doing quite a bit of skirting/class 4,5 scrambling in the ice cold jtree shade, and when the liner gets hot its hot however, it does a considerable job at wicking moisture away... The shell, I would rate with some of the top notch mountaineering shells, it held up very well against climbing the cheese grating, meat grinding, my hand is still swollen, rock of joshua tree. The shell wasn't phased a bit, it's a great shell and very water/ stain resistant. If jackets could take on the form of a type of person this jacket would be a Barbaric Warrior. Overall this jacket is well worth the money, extremely durable shell, very warm lining, slightly bulky, slightly heavy, and totally awesome... Hope this helps!



The only reason I gave this jacket 4 stars is: the second soft puffy jacket doesn't have any type of ventilation zippers... This would be a 10 star jacket if the sleeves of the puffy jacket could be removed, maybe in another model!

The Biking Engineer Wonderful jacket. Fits somewhat slim in the small, but as I am slim this was a pleasant surprise. I've mostly used this jacket with just the liner and it does very well at keeping you warm with a minimum of bulk, it's a stylish jacket as well which helps.



I used the full system for a chilly downpour when visiting PA this winter and found myself dry and toasty warm. The outer shell has vents which do a good job at regulating temperature.



The powder skirt fits well and stays out of the way when not in use. I could see this being a great jacket for a long day on the slopes, though I have not personally used it for that particular activity.

wmh2488756 The product writeup says it all...This 3-in-1 is detailed to perfection. If you prefer not wearing the hood most of the time, no problem. It stores easily in either of the large front pockets without looking bulky... yet, is available for that unexpected downpour. Sometimes actual colors are quite different than they appear online. In this case, at least for the Infinity/Navy, its right on. Overall, great value for the price!

Uncle Guy Good-looking jacket - marred by being not true-to-size. Others warn about it being too small -- it is. The problem is, if you try buying a size larger the arms become too long and the hood does, as well.



Another problem is the interior removable layer makes the sleeves difficult to get off when removing the jacket. The internal connecting point for the sleeves is higher up from the cuffs. If you do not grab the interior liner through the cuff, getting it off like a normal jacket is difficult.

Joe average Tried this parka on at the store. Needed one size larger "large" than my current "medium" columbia parka. Main use is just as a winter coat, back and forth from work, short walks at 1 to 2 miles.

It is very warm, fits well, zips up to chin and keeps the wind off my neck, soft lining at neck. Wind and rain proof. The inner lining is very light but warm. I love the deep pockets. Only minor complant would be the inner linning pulls through sometimes when you put the coat on.
