    Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket - Men's is rated 3.7143 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from VERY light warm jacket I bought this product for a trip to the (lower) Himalayas, and also have been walking the dog in it! Comfortable down to mid-20s with only t-shirt underneath, which is amazing considering it only weights 7.5 oz. Have seen other reviewers question the wind-proofing around the zipper. Have only tested it against a light wind so far, but it was fine. The main down side is that although it's comfortably snug in the chest, there's enough room for quite a big pot belly, and I don't have one. (This is not because I'm really muscular in the chest; I'm a pretty slim guy.) But the cinch at the bottom mitigates any heat loss due to this slight bagginess. The generously sized pockets are also nice, and it packs extremely compactly into one of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uber light and warm! OK so my coworker had one and said he was shocked on many levels with the Ghost Whisperer. I read up on it and knew it was for me. Never even tried it on. I had a few giftcards to offset the crazy high tag and pulled the trigger on buying it. Out of stock in all 6 local REIs so I mail-ordered it on a Friday and got it Monday. Was the Ghost Whisperer really so special that it was sold out and unavailable in all sizes and colors? I guess so! Cons: it takes a lotta clams to procure this coat! Pros: where to start... -It's so light my body tries to stop me from heading outside because it thinks I forgot a coat! -Lighter than my smartphone; not kidding. -Wore it in 10°F (-12C) with just a thermal long-sleeve shirt. Felt so comfortable and warm! Quiet too... most synthetic fibers become loud under movement in sub-freezing temps. -Size was true. I'm 6', 225 sport/muscle build and on the L/XL cusp with no beer-gut; I can wear some size-L shirts but I like coats in XL so I can layer. This gives me about 4" of room up front for my belly to grow! ;-) But it's not too big, IMHO. -Again, the warmth is unreal on this coat. -Packs into a size smaller than any burrito you can buy (not fast food burritos, the real ones you get at the Mexican joints). -It's lighter than my NF fleeces (which honestly are barely useful for walking to the mailbox) and the Ghost Whisperer is (did I mention?) warm!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Perplexed I am perplexed. The performance of this jacket is remarkable. As one reviewer noted, it feels like wearing warm air. Virtually weightless but noticeably warm. An impressive engineering accomplishment. However, the fit is awkward. Narrow at the chest, wide at the waist, for "pear-shaped bodies". I also tried the larger size which fit the chest, but was too long and floppy everywhere else. I would imagine that most customers shopping for an ultra light layer will have an athletic build, not a pear-shape. I am perplexed that a product with so much R&D would miss the mark on simple fit. Active men have athletic bodies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive This jacket is a regular for me with any sort of travel (even just in the car); It accounts for virtually no space or weight in a pack. This jacket's ability to regulate body temperature in multiple climates is what makes it a standout. It feels awesome in low 60s (above that, I start to overheat) but even down to the 20s, it supplies plenty of warmth by itself. This jacket seems to be the perfect asset for cold, dry, windy weather. However I have been hesitant to take it out in too heavy of weather situations only due to its ultralight design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from light, comfortable, & so cool it's hot I am traveling to extreme cold weather areas this winter and the product is perfect for dealing with the temp. It's easy to pack, does not wrinkle, keeps you warm and dry without adding to your travel load, and looks great. Compliments every time I wear it. As a plus, the jacket folds up into a package about the size of a baseball. There are many similar jackets but unfortunately they all look the same. The lining on this jacket and the style details make this Jacket stand out as the exception to the boring puffy jacket rule.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality This jacket is remarkably lightweight, but unfortunatelly in an effort to make it this extremely lightweight, the zippers and adjustable drawcord at the hem are of a very poor design. The drawcord got detched on a second use! This product should be made more durable. Unfortunately it seems that Mountain Hardware lost focus on quality. Considering the price and the unacceptably low quality, this is definitelly a jacket one should avoid.
