Phantom Hooded Down Jacket

You won't notice the Mountain Hardwear Phantom Hooded Down Jacket packed away when you're hiking into the alpine, but you will notice it missing when you wake up in high altitudes. Morning's frozen dew might keep you cowering in your sleeping bag without this jacket's lofty 800-fill down insulation. An 800-fill rating is one of the loftiest out there, which means this big puffy compresses small and maintains a surprisingly light weight for how warm it is. As if that wasn't appealing enough, Mountain Hardwear treated the down with Q.Shield for hydrophobic properties that retain the puff's lofty warmth in moisture-riddled environments. All of these attributes situate the Phantom as Mountain Hardwear's warmest climbing oriented midlayer.

  • Packable and reliable mid-layer for any of your alpine excursions
  • Ultralight ripstop fabric is durable, reliable, and water-resistant
  • Water resistant down maintains loft even when wet to keep you warm
  • 800-fill down provides an impressive weight to warmth ratio
  • Helmet-compatible hood adjusts easily for the right fit
  • Two zippered hand pockets can be accessed even with a harness on
  • Item #MHWZ9BO

Great coat but tight through the chest

I've used it several times
True to size
Size Bought
155 lbs

I have been the wearing the phantom jacket for a few months now. I love the coat as is a great insulating layer. It dries very fast and is VERY light weight. I am 6' and 155 lbs and If I could I would have more room in the chest and armpit areas. Its not so bad I am returning the coat but after a few hours of wearing the coat I do notice my t-shirt sleeves bunching slightly in my armpit. Also I wish Mountain hardware would offer a color that blended in better in the outdoors. Sneaking up on a trout or ungulate is hard when you stick out like a sore thumb.

Tight in armpits

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought
160 lbs

I really, really wanted to own this jacket as spec wise it's exactly what I was looking for to use as part of a layering system for hiking and climbing. I'm 6'0", 160 lbs, 41" chest, 34" arm length, 32" waist. I gave up on MH ~20 years ago because they cut their jackets so tight in the armpits. Well, they still do. My last jacket purchases were Rab, Marmot, and North Face which fit me great. I typically wear a large jacket, but since the plan was to wear this over one or two thin, tight fitting base layers, I bought a medium so that I can layer over this if necessary. The medium Phantom Hoody fit nicely everywhere but in the armpits where it was uncomfortably tight. I ordered a large Phantom and it was ok because the chest was larger, but the torso size was way too big for the closer fit I wanted. Flat dimensions for the medium Phantom Hoody when zipped up: 21” chest, 21” waist, 36” sleeve, 27.5” back lg. 9.8” inside arm opening at chest (armpit). 10.15 oz. Flat dimensions for the large Phantom Hoody when zipped up: 22.5” chest, 22” waist, 37” sleeve, 29.5” back lg. 9.8” inside armpit. 10.20 oz. I find it interesting that the arm opening at the chest is ~the same between sizes. Larger people don’t have bigger diameter arms according to MH. This is always my fit problem with MH- and my arms aren’t that big. The weights were essentially the same, so the large size has less down fill than medium. The pros: excellent construction, nice fitting hood, zippers work well. I returned both the MH jackets, thanks Backcountry for the great service, and bought a medium Marmot Quasar Nova on closeout. Although it’s not as nice a jacket, it fits me properly with flat dimensions of 22.2” chest, 21.5” waist, 35.5” sleeve, 27” back lg, 10.8” armpit opening. I’d like to try the TNF Summit L3, but too much $$$ at the regular price. If you’re tall and skinny, with scant upper body muscle, this is your jacket if you want to use it as a layering system. If you’re a heavier build, it also might work. If you lift weights and have an athletic build, and want a close fit to layer over if necessary, it’s probably not your jacket unless you’re at the bottom of the chest measurement range for the size.

No Drawstring In Hood

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

When I ordered the Phantom Down Hoody, the description read, "Helmet-compatible insulated hood with drawcord adjustment." Let me be clear. There is no drawstring for the hood. I chatted with Support and had them update the description so it is accurate now. Nice jacket and nice upgrade from the Ghost Whisperer.
