The Lhotse and Manaslu Jackets represent the pinnacle of waterproof protection for the most serious mountain all-rounders. Combining GORE-TEX® Pro with our STORM Construction techniques, they take Mountain Equipment’s hardshell engineering to the next level. With up to 28% greater breathability and even better durability new GORE-TEX® Pro is built specifically for the most demanding applications.

When combined with our 40D face fabric and even tougher 80D fabric reinforcements

it becomes an exceptional choice for severe four-season mountain use. Painstakingly engineered Alpine Cut offers exceptional fit and mobility which will be equally appreciated by mountaineers and hill walkers alike. Our renowned Mountain HC Hood swallows a climbing helmet but cinches down to offer equally perfect vision and mobility on remote treks through driving rain. The wired and laminated peak ensures performance in the face of violent gusts where less structured models can leave you unable to operate effectively.

Consisting of two large chest pockets and a cavernous Napoleon pocket our Stratum Storage System ensures that the essentials remain accessible when wearing a rucksack or climbing harness. A new YKK® Aquaguard® moulded front zip is easy to use in difficult conditions and keeps working smoothly even as your jacket rimes up in inhospitable icy gullies. Laminated and bonded pit zips provide extra ventilation for heavily laden walk-ins through driving snow and incessant drizzle.

Simple but highly protective shells that do it all, the Lhotse and Manaslu Jackets are equally at home on steep technical ground and in rain lashed valleys. Combining full specification design with features and fabrics guaranteed to perform in the worst weather they are the obvious choice for those who demand performance and simplicity.

Features:

• 3-layer GORE-TEX® Pro 40D fabric
• 3-layer GORE-TEX® Pro 80D fabric reinforcements
• Mountain HC Hood is fully adjustable
• New Alpine fit with articulated and pre-shaped sleeves
• Storm Construction techniques used throughout
