Review: Mountain Equipment Lhotse

Featuring three-layer Gore-Tex Pro, an alpine fit with articulated and pre-shaped sleeves, pit-zips, plenty of pockets, and a fully adjustable hood, the Mountain Equipment Lhotse does it all in a comfy and efficient way. The combination of its outstanding cut, quality components, and solid feel make is a seriously reassuring companion on wet, windy days. Hailing from across the pond in the U.K., the Lhotse is spendy, but is indubitably one of the best all-mountain jackets on the market. $600;
