Ghost Whisperer Hooded Down Jacket
Weighing in at a mere seven ounces, Mountain Hardwear’s Ghost Whisperer Hooded Down Jacket is a weight saving addition to your backpacking kit. The lightest down jacket on the market, it’s packed with 800-fill Nikwax treated hydrophobic down. You won’t need to worry if the jacket gets wet in a light rainstorm while you’re out in the backcountry or in an alpine environment as water will shear right off.
With a low profile slim fit shape, the Ghost Whisperer makes a great layering piece to wear under a shell jacket when skiing or it can even be worn as its own layer and works great with a harness. The down insulation is packable as well and the jacket can be stuffed into its own pocket for easy storage. A carabiner loop adds convenience and clips onto a pack or harness while it’s stuffed away into its storage pocket.

- Q & A
Not Warm At All
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: s
- Height: 5'6"
- Weight: 135lbs
There is no way this is 800 fill! It provides zero warmth. I have other jackets that are 650-700 fill, and they are hands down much warmer. The cold literally goes right though you wearing it. I DO NOT recommend.
Fit compared to the Thermostatic Insulated Jacket
How does this coat fit compared to the Thermostatic Insulated Jacket from a few years ago (i.e. does it fit the same or is it more slim etc?)
Does this jacket pack into its pocket?
Hey Kate! According to a couple reviews from other Gearheads who have used the item, It stuffs down into its own pocket making it about the size of a 16 oz Nalgene water bottle. Hope this helps!
