Why We Like The Phantom Down Jacket
Say goodbye to shiver-packed days with Mountain Hardwear’s Phantom Down Jacket for diving temperatures in the roughest climates. We appreciate that the Phantom is built with high-loft RDS-certified 800-fill down that cuts out the cold and claims the title of Mountain Hardwear's warmest down jacket, as well as the lightweight ripstop fabric that holds up to ice climbing and alpine routes. At just over 16 ounces, this puffy lives hides out of sight in your ski, alpine climbing, or mountaineering pack. We also appreciate that the nylon taffeta lining has a water-repellant finish for ice drips and light snow, while the fleece-lined pockets warm your digits as you wait for your friends to skin up on ski tours.

Like it a lot, but chose another instead
Really liked it but settled on the MontBell instead. Pluses were comfort, fit, good secure pockets, very warm. The reason I chose the MontBell is that I was seeking something a little slimmer looking for 3-season flexibility and travel.

Dont order in white!!!
love love love the jacket....but in white, all the dark feathers show thru and from a distance the jacket looks like it has dirt spots all over it!!! :( so sad, because it is a wonderfully feeling jacket!!!

I searched every single down jacket available and chose this one because it has 800-fill down and is lightweight and is super cute! I am not disappointed AT ALL! I wear it every day. It is so comfortable and warm and it looks expensive. The color is an irridescent white, like pearl. There are cool pockets everywhere and it even has adjustable pull string around bottom. I have long arms and they are long enough for me. I am tall and skinny and the Medium is perfect for me. I recommend this to everyone!

not for me....
I wanted to like this coat, but I had to send it back. I have an athletic build and i found it to fit a bit to snug around the hips. I also thought the material was a bit too thin for my needs. I wanted something with a more substantial outermaterial(something water repellent). I also thought the color was a bit duller than the picture. Back it went. I liked the North Face Amore better!

I bought this jacket to wear while we lived in Calgary, AB Canada and it has served me well. I can throw on a hooded sweatshirt underneath and walk miles in temperatures ranging from 0 to 28 degrees fahrenheit. It's warm enough for the cold nights but not too warm for the cold sunny days. I have not regretted the lack of a hood, but someone else might. It fits well. No down jacket that is truly warm is going to make you look like a model, but this one doesn't make you feel 20 lbs overweight either. I would recommend it.
