Men's Lakpa Rita Jacket

Men's Lakpa Rita Jacket is available to buy in increments of 1

This jacket is named in honor of Lapka Rita, the first Sherpa to climb the highest peaks on all seven continents. It's the 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.

  • Seams are placed away from shoulder tops and hips to avoid chafing under pack straps, pack belt, or harness
  • Main fabric is an eVent waterproof/air permeable laminate made of 40d x 40d with a 70d ripstop
  • Helmet-compatible hood has a single adjustment at the back to snug the fit when needed; the stiffened brim can be shaped to deflect inclement weather
  • Large, zippered hand pockets are placed high so as not to interfere with a harness or pack belt


  • Main fabric: 100% nylon taffeta treated with DWR finish; 40D x 40D eVent, a ePTFE laminate, gets a 20,000mm/25,000 mvtr waterproof/breathable rating
  • Contrast Panels: 100% ripstop nylon treated with DWR (durable water repellent) finish; it gets a 20,000mm/30,000 mvtr waterproof/breathable rating
