"Great product. little brighter than it looks"
I've had this jacket for a month now and got the chance to test it on cold weather (-2) This jacket is incredible light and warm for it's weight. Feels like im wearing hot air. It tends to let some air. I had it on on (-2) F with a only a long sleeve on I felt the cold air coming but again I had only a layer under. The color is brighter than it seems and the fabric sines quite a bit. I geta lot of complements about this jacket, but it kinda makes me look like a puff cheeto :/ The fit is great and slim. A little baggie on the stomach but not a biggie
My husband had been searching for a down jacket thin enough to fit under his Kepler, he tried several jackets, but they were either too puffy or too long. The Ghost Whisperer was perfect and so was the price, almost 50% off.
This is a must have jacket supper light packs up into the pocket.Very tough material doesn't loose anything in the wash,extremely portable doesn't take up much space in your suitcase.I have 100% confidence that his jacket will keep me warm no matter what conditions i have been exposed to, you will be the envy of all your friends.Ok so I spelled one word wrong in my haste, now where's my points.

I ordered this jacket expecting it to be a somewhat warm and light nsulating layer, but I was surprised by the warmth that it provided. I was pleasantly surprised when it shielded me well from 15-30 mph gusts of wind in freezing temperatures with no difficulty.The second time I wore the jacket, I accidentally scraped up against a really rough concrete wall and was positive that I had to have ripped the material. Surprisingly enough, the outer fabric was strong enough to withstand the scrape and it was still as good as new!My only complaint is simply the cheap wrist cuffs. I also own the Arc'teryx Atom LT and its extremely comfortable wristbands have spoiled me.
I bought this jacket off of a recommendation from the people at Moosejaw and absolutely love it! It's hard to believe how warm it is when you first put it on, it's light weight, and collapses down for an easy fit in the backpack. I wore this while hiking and campiong in below 32 degree weather and was never cold. I'm 6'0 about 195 lbs and the large fits me perfectly. I have nothing negative to say about this jacket, it's amazing!
A lot of people have been complaining about the sleeves on this jacket being too long. For me I wish they were a bit longer. I bought the medium which fits my midsection perfectly but the sleeves are just a half inch shorter than I would like. I bought the medium thinking that all of the complaints about the sleeves would mean that it should fit me perfectly but it does not. When I take the time to ensure the sleeves are pulled down there are no issues at all with the sleeve size.
"Makes me look like Big Bird....and I don't care!"
This jacket is so light it registers -4 grams on my scale! Could be the scale, but I blame it on the jacket. (It doesn't seem to mind!) It stuffs into its own pocket for compact storage in my pack, and makes a decent pillow if I don't have to wear it.
The Ghost Whisperer competes with the Patagonia Ultralight Down Jacket, and some of Mont-Bell's offerings. Mont-Bell was the only player for years, but MH and Patagonia have ushered in more typical (American) cuts and fabric improvements. This jacket is so light, I sometimes forget it's on at all. The colors are a bit outlandish ("fashion-forward"), but look good. Silky smooth, and more loft than you'd expect.
