My girlfriend loves it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Bought this as a gift and she is crazy about it. You would never think such lightweight would be so warm.

Poor quality stitched baffles.

Stitching and baffling coming apart all over this jacket. This is the back shoulder and the right arm.

Did this come from Walmart??

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

I bought this product in December, it is now April and since about January I've had major issues with it. I have only used it from walking back and forth from my truck to my office, (very light use), and it is falling apart. It started with the stitching baffles coming out, they snag on everything - I have strings hanging off my coat in several places. Then shortly after the logo on the inside of the neck wore off, followed by the logo on the chest. It is unreal. It looks like garbage. The logos are ironed on plastic, not embroidered on like any quality coat should be, especially considering the brand and the price tag. I live this brand but I cannot understand how their quality control would allow a product made so cheaply leave for sale to the public. When I purchased this coat it was retailing at $319! (Really?) For this? I wouldn't pay $60 for something made so poorly. I'm very disappointed, I love the color and design, even though it's no "coat", but rather a light warm layer for 40 degrees and above. I live in Colorado so I know cold, and I know down coats. I bought this because it was rated the highest down fill I could find (850 fill), I was "upgrading" from my old North Face coat that I used for years without hardly a single sign of wear. My old coat was a 550 fill and always kept me warm in Colorado, even when camping at altitude near the top of a 14er. But this Mountain Hardware coat is lightweight yes, but it is tissue thin, and feels like it's only a 250 fill. It is quite cute, but doesn't do much else. This is a huge disappointment.

Two questions: (1) Are all colors listed made with the new Q.Shield Down? Or are the versions on sale made with non-water-resistent down? (2) I never know whether to order M or L. I have a MH shell in L that's huge on me. But generally Med tops are too short in lengths (arms shoulders torso) even though they fit my body (girth). Thanks.

warm and super light

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

The color of the zip on the dark Plum is pink, not orange as it looks like online. But I love it.

Great jacket

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

I love this jacket! It is extremely light, but has great warmth and wind resistance. The color ("sea level") is beautiful. Perfect alone in temperatures above 20 degrees or so; low profile for wearing under a shell. No unnecessary bells or whistles, just good design.
Fits true to size.

Nice and light but did not like shine

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

Perhaps it's just me, and I'm female, but I did not like the shiny black outer covering. It gave the jacket an industrial look and I did not like it. I did like the weight of the jacket and it fit well but every time I tried on the jacket that shine got me.

I've seen the black and it is shiny, I ordered the Steam color and love it!

Perfect light weight jacket!

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

I ordered this jacket to bring hiking in the winter/fall and have additionally started wearing it everyday. It is super light weight and comfortable. It is surprisingly warm and fits comfortably enough to fit a few layers underneath. I layered on top while camping in the snow but even without a windproof layer, it is still super warm.

Great lightweight and warm layer!

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

I keep a ghost whisperer in my pack doing pretty much everything and it always comes in handy when the unexpected chill hits or you're out later than you thought you would be rappelling off a route. It's so lightweight, you don't even notice it in your bag. It packs down super small. Love the color of the dark plum! I also wear this puffy every day of the winter. It is a great layer under a shell for added warmth as well as to throw on top of your outerwear when you top out on a hike and need that added extra warmth quickly. Great fit, love that it's lightweight yet still keeps me super warm! Have washed it numerous times, wear it all the time, and it's still holding up super well. Definitely my most used item out of all of the Mountain Hardwear gear.

UltraLight and UltraWarm

  • Fit: True to size

I could not have asked for any better down jacket! I?m on the smaller side, 5?2 and 114 lbs, so I?ve been able to wear a boys XL jacket for years. It was finally time to replace it, and I?m ever so happy that I did! I purchased the men?s version of the Ghost Whisperer for my boyfriend last year, and ever since then, I?ve been coveting it. I ended up going with the no hood version in a size Small, and it fits great! I?ve had problems in the Patagonia Down Sweater in having super long arms, but the fit on this jacket is perfect. The fit on the jacket has a very feminine cut, without being too tight. I love that there is a drawcord in the hem to pull it in a little bit more too. There is not a whole ton of room in the arms for thick layers underneath, but with the warmth from this jacket alone, I don?t think I would ever need a thick layer under it! The amount of warmth that this feather light jacket has is astounding. It?s perfect for a chilly night alone, or as a layer under a shell for the super cold days out at the resort or in the backcountry. I hands down recommend this jacket to anyone- it?s my new favorite piece of gear!

Light & Fast & Versatile

Use this piece for both layering and as an outer layer. Versatile and useful in many applications. Packs up small, gives off good warmth, and is light & maneoverable. From skiing, ski mountaineering, cragging, or evening cover, it works. I am 5'8, 140lbs, athletic build, and the MEDIUM fits perfectly.

Great ultralight piece

This jacket is almost lighter than air and so comfortable. I bought it for cool weather and for layering. It looks great, and fits great. The arm holes are slightly on the slim side, so you can't put a super heavy layer under it, but that helps keep the fit trim in the arms, which looks better than most down jackets. This jacket looks and fits much better than the Patagonia version. For cold weather, I'll be using my Rab Infinity jacket, but this is a nice jacket to have available when it's not too cold.

Lightweight and Warm!

This coat is awesome. It's super lightweight yet it keeps you very warm. I'm always making people feel it because they don't believe me that it weighs practically nothing. It's not bulky and has a women's fit to it. I even got caught in a rainstorm in it and it kept me perfectly dry. I wear it all over: to work, out and about, and being active. I highly recommend this down jacket!
