Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product - horrible zippers I bought a ghost whisperer for backcountry skiing 2 years ago. Most of the time the jacket sat in my pack, but it was great to have. Packs small and very warm - exactly what is needed when storms blow in and it gets cold. The problem is that you have to fight the zipper everytime you put on the jacket. The zipper failed the second year I owned the jacket and I did not even use the jacket much. I took it back to REI and they replaced it with a 2015-16 model. Thank you REI!!! Hopefully, the zipper is improved on the newer versions or Mountain Hardware will hear from me. Too expensive a jacket to have a low quality zipper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Light weight Down Jacket I bought this Jacket for backpacking purposes, trying to lighten the load. Today it was 17 degrees and sunny. I wore this jacket with a long sleeve Ice Breaker merino wool shirt underneath. I walked a mile in the cold and I was more than warm under my jacket. This jacket is all it is talked up to be and will be in my back pack the next trip to Spain

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like wearing a furnace A coworker was sporting one and when I commented on how awesome it looked, he let me try his on. I was shocked to feel how light it was, like how LIGHT IN WEIGHT it was. My car keys were heavier! I've now had mine going on 2 years and not only do I love it, I often take it off and let people try it for themselves, often yielding the same surprised reaction I had. Warm? Well let's say this thing is like wearing a portable furnace. Here in Chicago we get cold. I've used this with just a t-shirt underneath while shoveling in the +15f degree range and it was perfect. Sure I was generating a ton of body heat with that activity but still. I've used it layered with a t-shirt and long sleeved shirt for -5f degrees and it performed like, well, a small furnace. It's versatile: I've used it snowshoeing in IL, hiking in CA mountains, walking in Denver all with zero complaints, just cinch the waist drawstring to keep the draft out (or let it in to regulate). Suggest getting a rain shell if you may get caught in rain/sleet/thaw conditions because I wouldn't wanna test their waterproofed feathers claim out in the field.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultra light and warm Only have had this a little while but so far its amazing. Very light and can stow in its own pocket and clipped to my bag when I don't need it. If you cant afford this top of the line down jacket, you can always save $100 and for Mountain Hardwares other jacket that is a little heaver and not cut as athletic, but has the same Q Down. 4 stars only because price high and colors are OK

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and Functional First, let me tell you what I bought it for. I bought it to be an extremely lightweight, packable, mid to outer layer for hiking and camping. To this extent, its amazing! The warmth to weight ratio is truly insane. I am a thin blooded Floridian and this thing is all you need with whatever underneath easily into the upper 20's. I have worn while day hiking and it was honestly hot in the 30's. Let me tell you some facts, but not necessarily negatives. It's honestly not a fantastic fashion statement. Its a bit "poofy" in the middle and could use a more athletic cut. Also, the material is so thin that it looks a little space man esc. I also had to return the large which is my usual size and get the medium to full fill my desire for it to be a mid layer. All in all, amazing warmth and packability. Not perfect for fashion. No opinion yet on durability but I don't think I would bushwhack with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Losing feather thru stiches Wore it only once and found two stitch holes losing feather. Seems too fragile. Yes it is very light but there are many other closer competitors on that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow! This is an endlessly reviewed product but I can't help myself. It's really awesome. Unbelievably light, packs to nothing and appears to be really warm. I haven't tested it yet. In San Diego the cold nights are few and I think I'm out of them this year. Come on sierra's! As the last reviewer said, the zippers kinda suck. They get stuck on themselves more than the jacket. Not great but so far who cares. Maybe some candle wax on it will make it smoother. Otherwise reeeeealy nice. It is a bit large compared to most. I'm most definitly not the model pictured. My nano puff is getting tight around the gut at the same size but this one fits. When I get into backpacking shape (get off me!) I'll be able to fit a layer under it. Maybe runs a half size large. Get it on sale and you'll be thrilled. Happy trails

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best things I've bought with money. I was in the market for a jacket and decided to splurge on the best. This jacket had not disappointed. It's so light that it floats on the air if you throw it. It packs down easily and gets to be about the volume of a standard nalgene bottle, out smaller if you stuff it in a pack. The warmth is truly astounding. I wear this over a tee shirt all winter in DC and Michigan, and I'm nice and warm. It can be below freezing and my hands will sweat in the pockets. This is not meant to be abused, however. The shell will tear if you're not careful while performing certain tasks, though the tear I got was very small and contained by the rip stop, and I was carrying building materials at the time. My fault. Overall, this jacket is pretty close to being magic. It's warm, light, and packs small. The trade off is of course the price point.

How low of a temperature will this jacket keep you comfortable? And, I am not referring to a survival temperature like what is used on sleeping bags. I want to know when I could use this jacket, versus needing a heavier jacket. Thanks.

Asked by: H2OGeo Dave
Most manufacturers unfortunately do not put temperature ratings on jackets because they are too subjective. Not only is everybody different but conditions, nature of activity and the type and amount of layering underneath can affect how a certain temperature will feel. That said, the Ghost Whisperer has Q.Shield DOWN 800-fill insulation that resists moisture and maintains warmth. It is a very warm jacket.
