Why We Like The Ghost Shadow Hooded Jacket

When our comrade's project is at a shaded wall, we pack along the Ghost Shadow to stay warm as we give them a catch. It's baffle free below the waist for a more comfortable fit under our harness, while the low-bulk, breezy insulation keeps us cozy as they suss the crux.


  • Versatile jacket to boost warmth on the trail and around town
  • Durable recycled material provides quick-drying performance
  • Synthetic insulation delivers lightweight warmth even when wet
  • Fixed hood and adjustable hem offer additional protection
  • Stows into its own pocket for compact stowing
  • Runs small, so we recommend sizing up for ideal fit

Handsome, light weight warm jacket

Beautifully designed and sewn down jacket w/hood. It's an alternative, for me, to a cashmere sweater, but with a hood and pockets! So light weight, elegant looking for a down coat, warms me instantly over even a tee-shirt. I travel with it packed small - but ready to pull out in planes, on windy days, etc. Great long sleeves, terrific option to have turtle neck "tight" top, hood stays in place. Love it - and hope the blue one comes back, too. (155 pounds, 5'7", LARGE)

Runs small

I usually wear size medium in the Ghost down jacket. This was too small in the arms and shoulders. I wish it was more of an athletic shape. I returned it and ordered the large. But feels somewhat baggy

Lightweight. Practical. Stylish.

Great light jacket. Light weight. Not stiff or marshmallow feeling. Easy to move around. The slightly cut-in torso makes it flattering. Not too boxy. Length hits just above my hips. Sleeves seem a tad narrow, but I don’t plan on wearing a bulky sweater underneath. Good for chilly, Spring weather. I have owned a Ghost Whisperer for 2 years which is perfect for snow wearing just a T-shirt underneath. (It was worth every penny!) This Ghost Shadow will need a long sleeve shirt for more warmth, if needed. Great for 55-60 degree weather. I did get hot after light exercise, so not sure how breathable it is. But then again, I just want to stay warm. Wind does not whip through it. I love it!!! Thank you, Mountain Hardware for outstanding useful products.

Runs really small!

I ordered this jacket in the same size as my other Standard Fit women's jacket from Mountain Hardwear. The other jacket fits great; it is a comfortable looser fit that layers quite nicely. I could barely get this jacket on over my arms. It is incredibly tight in the bicep, upper back, and chest. I am a climber but not massively muscled by any means. I followed the size chart and given the perfect fit of my other jacket that is also labeled as standard fit, I expected better out of this jacket. Going to try reordering in a size up, but I am still hesitant that the arms will be too snug. Hopefully will leave a better review with the larger size as it seems like a lovely jacket and I love mountain hardwear! Would try the men's jacket for larger arms, but the hips never fit right on an assigned female at birth body.

Great fit! Comfortable!

I bought this as a layer under my ski jacket shell. With two base layer on and this jacket under my shell, I was still cold while skiing on a 20 degree day. I expected it to be warmer.

Inferior zipper and zipper pulls compared to my old one but higher $$$

I bought one of these jackets about 4 years ago and I love it. Though the hood does not have a drawstring, it has been my experience that the way the jacket is constructed the hood stays in place when the jacket is fully zipped up. I recently bought a new one and it is very disappointing to see that the price has gone up quite a bit and they are cutting costs with inferior quality zippers and zipper pulls. My old jacket had rubber zipper pulls on all the zippers with thicker shock cord and the new one only has thin shock cord and no pulls. Within a few wears one fell out and I couldn't find it. Thankfully, I kept my old one and I replaced all the pulls on the new one. The colors don't match but I don't care. Too bad to see one of my beloved brands going on the cheap while still charging more for an inferior product. I still love this jacket and will keep it but will check other brands and rethink future purchases.

Comfortable and light but hood has no adjustment

Pros: Lightweight, water resistant, comfortable. Packs down tiny and great under a rain shell. Cons: Hood has no way to tighten and wind will blow off. No chest or internal zip pocket. Not very warm… more like warmth of a thick wind resistant polar fleece.

Colorful light jacket

Lightweight down jacket that meets a need for a spring jacket to walk the dog, run errands and take on trips. Love the color too!
