Lakpa Rita Jacket - Men's

Item# SM609
(lak•puh ree•ta)
Named for Lakpa Rita Sherpa, the “Best Sardar in the Khumbu” and our chief mentor and gear tester. To date, he’s been to the summit of Everest 17 times…and counting.
A legend in his own time, Lakpa Rita was the first Sherpa to climb the highest peaks on all seven continents. He also happens to be our toughest critic and gear tester. This jacket is named in honor of him, and it’s our best waterproof/breathable hard shell – period. Made of the finest materials available, it features design and construction details specific to serious alpine pursuits. Two eVent® waterproof fabrics – strategically placed nylon ripstop and nylon taffeta – feature Direct Venting™ technology: water stays out while perspiration vapor escapes through microscopic nano-vents.

M from Washington, DC on Dec 04, 2016
I purchased two of these in the Winter / Spring 2016, 1 L and 1 XL. I used the large for general around town wear (snugger fit) and the x-large for climbs / layering. For reference, I'm 6'0 ~200lbs, wide shoulders. The large is excellent for daily use, breathes well, wears comfortably and handles rain, snow and wind well. I can fit an R1 hoody and a long-sleeve shirt under it comfortably. The x-large is a bit roomier with good shoulder flexibility, and can easily accommodate winter layers including a down coat. I used the XL on a couple North Cascades climbs this summer, including 7 days along the Ptarmigan where it poured with high winds for the first 4 days. This jacket handled all the weather in stride and was one of my few pieces of gear that stayed 'dry'. Sat well and was comfortable for climbing, easy fit around harness, etc.
