Award Winner - National Geographic Adventure Gear of the Year Award 2012
The Mountain Hardwear Men’s Ghost Whisperer down jacket is one of those jackets you’ll be glad to have during a cold, winter day. This jacket, made by Mountain Hardwear, features quilt construction to hold insulation in place, and front handwarmer pockets to keep your hands nice and warm so you can do stuff like tie your shoes when it’s cold out. We all know how much of a challenge that can be. A lightweight single pull hem drawcord gives you the freedom to decide how tight, or loose, you want your fit to be. An insulated hood is also a cool feature on this jacket, so it has pretty much everything you need to be warm in the winter. Oh how wonderful.

Yes, it is the best Down Jacket, but now there are the new Ghost whisperer whit the Q shield tratreatment is nothing but silicone impregnated in the feathers, makes them water repellent and more resistant to moisture or sweat condensation, I think it's a great idea, but there are no ghost whisperer Q-shield with hood,You can get the same effect with a simple Q-Shield Nkiwax Down Proof, the same principle, but the power is renewed every wash that is done.
The jacket has minor flaws that I wanted to put in place, the storage system inside the pocket I eliminated, too difficult to insert, and may break, I took a piece of writing with zip Stow, then I did a fixed setting of 'elastic lumbar and I sewed. now it's perfect. M weighs only 203 grams
I got this to be my comfy layer under my waterproof shell. The quality of the jacket is killer with a hood that fits inside most snow jackets and shells perfectly. The jacket has more shine to it than I had expected but I do not mind as I like the shine and wear it as a layer most of the day. The extremely light weight of the jacket makes you forget you have it on or under your shell :)
I've worn this jacket frequently in the month I've owned and I must say I am very impressed! The jacket is light, warm, and fits me well. The hood is excellent, and I have no complaints about the quality of any of the components. I am comfortable wearing this jacket over a cotton t-shirt on 32 degree mornings; I can't vouch for anything colder in this mild winter.Overall, I would highly recommend this jacket.
"AMAZING JACKET! The entire staff at the store wanted to try it on when I picked it up..."
and I let them. Then at another store, more staff members wanted to try it on. LOVE this jacket and it's been perfect with the start of a cold winter in the windy city. Being super light, it compresses into my bag so I never have to coat check anymore, which I had to do all the time with my old stupid jacket. My rain shell fits perfectly over it, making it the most BA jacket combo out there.Yes, this jacket whispers my name and I will wear it anywhere it wants to go.LOVE THE HOOD!
