    It might just be the next greatest thing to ever happen to you.

    A bold statement, we know, but when you zip on the Mountain Hardwear Men's Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket, the ridiculous warmth and lightness of the Ghost Whisperer might be the next greatest thing to happen to you. The 800-fill Q.shield down brings massive warmth without weight, and the down resists moisture so it won't stop insulating if it happens to get a little soggy. Its lightweight Whisperer ripstop nylon pairs up with the down to make this puffy weigh in at a mere 7oz so you'll be able to throw it in your pack when you're climbing or harvesting some backcountry turns without it taking up too much space or acting like a lead balloon in your pack.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large

    Love this Jacket.

    It's warmth to weight/size ratio is the best - bar none.

    I have worn in Fall, Winter, Spring in New England and it has done the trick every time. I always bring this jacket with me while hiking in the mountains, because of it's size there is no reason to leave it at home. It is a little tacky looking due to the shininess of the jacket material (according to my girlfriend) so I don't wear it much around Boston, but I only get compliments while on the trail!



    It runs a bit large for my taste, but it is definitely not too large for me.

    Great Jacket

    Tits Magits!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: medium

    Light, stashes in its own pocket, dries quickly, warm warm warm. Is a great jacket as a midlayer in the winter and for chillen with a chillum around camp. Not to be worn as an outer layer as the poly fabric will tear to shreds. Not very waterproof, but will dry quickly in one night next to your heat sack in a blizzard or monsoon. Keep it clean, use down wash and water repellent products to freshen up its hydrophobic properties. Use it as a pillow.
    Has performed wonderfully in -30 degree blizzard winter traverses on Mt. Washington and recently in an always present rain snow cloud on Mt. Shuksan. Has served me well. Runs large, but good for layering.

    Runs Large and Very Thin Material

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I am 6'3 175lbs and this was by far the largest medium I've ever purchased. The proportions were all wrong with baggy upper arms and a wide middle which, when the jacket was cinched, would cause the middle to pouch.

    Also, be warned, the material is very thin, which I was not prepared for. Yes it is rip stop but unless I was wearing a shell I always felt like I was going to catch it on something and rip it.

    Otherwise this jacket felt incredible. The material makes it feel like you are wearing a cocoon of warm air. Kept the 20 degree Michigan winter at bay with only a T shirt underneath.

    Holy cow buy this jacket.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small

    What else is there to say about this jacket. It's impossibly light while staying incredibly warm, looks totally rad, packs down to a size smaller than a football, and is an 800 fill down. The sleeves and length of the jacket are a tad longer than other MH small a I have, but nothing outrageous. I bought the unhooded version at a local outdoor shop in Japan where I live, but I'm sure this jacket will be an excellent choice anywhere. I highly recommend it.

    Great Looking Lightweight Down Jacket

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large

    I bought this jacket for my father for a recent trip to the Swiss Alps, he had a heavier weight down jacket but wanted to get him something more fitted that he could layer under the shell I got him for Christmas. The fit is a bit large, my father is 5 foot 7 145 and we started with size medium and ended up returning and getting a small which was a much better fit. The jacket is highly compressible , which came in handy when they lost his luggage and he discovered he could pack it up inside his laptop bag when not wearing it! The jacket does have a sheen to it, but in black and grey looks very nice, bit more dressed up even.

    Had to return

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I like how it fits and warm it is. Unfortunately I had to return mine because I didn't realize the jacket was quite glossy. I like the matte look so I didn't get to try it out.

    Very Light

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: large

    This jacket has already been used in 20 degree weather and excelled above and beyond in the warmth category. I usually keep it packed down and stored in my commuter pack and pulled out when the wind picks up in NYC. I have two cons and only two. It will snag very easily especially when the zipper is being used. And the sizing runs large so I had to size down to a med. I usually wear a large with room to add a layer underneath. The body of the jacket was too wide and bulky and added way too much material. Aside from that it is a fantastic piece of kit and I am looking forward to getting it on the trail.

    Why did I wait to buy this jacket?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M

    Weight to warmth is incredible. Fit was just right. Sleeves were spot on (33") and length was just below the belt line. Bought a Medium. 5'7" 165lbs.

    Lightweight and warm

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M

    Fits well - true to size M and love the Compass Blue color. Very minimal leak of feather. Extremely lightweight and packable. Washed up nicely. Needs a shell for rain.

    A light weight that's a heavy hitter.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I have been eyeballing a high quality down jacket for a long time and finally decided on this one. This was without a doubt an excellent purchase.

    I have used this jacket probably 10 times now and carried it in my pack a few more days. My primary use for this jacket is as a mid layer under my FlyLow shell while skiing. So far it has been perfect for this. I generally wear a base layer, then my Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket, and finally my shell. Using it like this I don't feel like the Michelin Man due to bulk, because the Ghost Whisperer is the exact opposite of bulky. This combo has been able to cover me over a pretty good temperature gradient.(0-30 degrees Fahrenheit) I haven't had a chance to use it in weather any colder than 0 degrees. I have worn this as an outer layer while touring on a few cold and windless mornings and it performed excellent. When things have gotten sweaty before I had the chance to open some vents or drop a layer this jacket seamed to handle the moisture pretty well and didn't lose much loft in the typical spots like the wrists, inside the elbow, or on the shoulders.


    This jacket packs a lot of punch for how small it packs down to and how light it is. When it is all stowed away inside its own pocket it fits in the goggle pocket of my Black Diamond backpack and I really like that because I never have to fret over leaving it home or bringing it with do to space available in my pack.

    Bottom line
    I would recommend to a friend.
    I would buy it again.
    I do love it.

    MH ghost whisperer jacket

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: xl

    Bought XL size. I am 6'3" 220 lbs athletic build. XL was just too large all over. If you go by size chart XL seems to be my size however it runs too big or jacket is just not for athletic type build. It is looking and feeling great though....

    Perfect mid or outer layer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I have used this jacket in many different combinations. I have used it mostly as an outer layer, because a t-shirt and the ghost whisperer together are plenty of warmth for your average 32 degree day. When it rains, I use a lightweight rainshell over the ghost whisperer and it keeps me both warm and dry. Definitely an incredible amount of weight for the surprisingly light weight. Overall, the jacket is very good, but you do have to be careful with sharp objects and abrasive surfaces. As far as the fit goes, I am 6 foot with average/slightly longer arms and torso, and the medium jacket fits me perfectly.

    Warm for the weight

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: medium

    Light weight

    Sheds a bit of moisture

    I would say the sizing runs large - the medium worked over two base layers and a shell (see photo).

    Warm for the weight

    Best Down Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I was a little hesitant to get the Ghost Whisperer because of the price tag, but I did anyway based on its great reviews - and I'm really glad I did. It's amazingly light weight - the lightest down jacket I've ever owned. The outer material is extremely light and seems thin, but it's remarkably tough. I've caught the jacket on rough wood and trees and it hasn't been any worse for the wear.

    The outer material shed moisture, but things do get damp somehow, the hydrophobic down still keeps me warm. So you can wear it as an outer piece, or layer it under a ski shell.

    My one gripe would be that it's slightly boxy fitting, but minimally so.

    I'm 5'11 150lbs and a medium seems to be the proper size. Because I'm skinny, that my be why it seems boxy.

    nice, light and toasty!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    I've been eyeing this jacket for close to 6 months based on an indefinitely wild review. spotted a medium on clearance and pulled the trigger. i've taken it out camping twice this fall and boy, did it keep my core warm! the jacket is incredibly light and compresses to the size of a small to medium grapefruit. my only quip is the sizing. i'm a short dude with a muscular build, wide shoulders. torso fits great but sleeves were a little long for my arms. my easy fix was just to cuff 'em. perfect fit! i highly recommend it! i can't wait to layer it up this winter in wisconsin!!!

    Never Leave It At Home

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Full disclosure I used to be an MHW ambassador, but it's safe to say this was/is one of my favourite all-time layers. It's so light and packable that you really never have an excuse to leave it at home, and hey, the best layer is the one you have with you. Highly recommend it for ski touring keeners.

    Got a sizing question. I am about 6ft 185 lbs athletic build and want to wear a base layer under this jacket. I usually wear a medium. Should I get a medium or large?

    I do not own this jacket but just wondering, WHY?! for the past ten years would you not have a chest pocket on all outerwear?

    I'm not a Mountain Hardwear rep, so I can't speak to their intentions as a brand, but I'd suggest that it's likely because this is intended as an ultralight piece, and more pockets/zippers = more weight. Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with!

    Do you have any of the older men's Ghost Whisperer hooded jacket (med) that is 850 fill down? instead of the newer 800 fill.

    Best Answer

    Hey Katie - I own Green River Sales which represents MHW in the Rockies and for BC.com. The Ghost Whisperer style(s), whether at 850 or 800+ fill are identical...there's essentially no difference between the two fill power rates. The key is our really in our "Ghost" face-fabric and less so the fill power of down. I've been in the industry for 20+ years and I spent close to a decade at The North Face prior to this, where I was part of the global product PL protocol. I've got a tremendous amount of experience with goose down and fill powers and frankly anything over 800 is by all intents and purposes, the same. So, have no fear, the 800+ fill power down Ghost's are STILL, the lightest weight, fully-featured down jackets money can buy and again that's largely due to the 7D Ghost face-fabric that only MHW has access to. Hope this helps!!

    Looking for info on how well it packs? Will this squish down to a small size to fit in my pack as an extra layer?

    It folds up quite nicely in its own pocket, imagine a squishy burrito from Chipotle and that's your jacket lol. But even then it can be mashed a little more. I've thrown mine everywhere from the bottom of my pack, a small zippered pocket and it's been great.
