Men's Ghost™ Lite Jacket is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light, functional windshirt with a hood I use the GhostLite and a Patagonia Houdini, which weighs one more ounce and has an adjustable hood. The Ghostlite hood is not adjustable, but generally I don't find that an issue. The Ghostlite is clearly not as durable, and I take this into consideration when deciding when to use which item. Both windshirts serve me well. I did save about $25 on the Houdini as a sale item, so it cost me about $30 less than the Ghostlite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ultra lite windbreaker This is the perfect windbreaker for running and trail running. It weighs almost nothing and packs into a small pouch yet it provides protection from the wind while remaining breathable. It will not keep you dry in heavy rain but works against drizzle or fog. Despite a plastic shine - I like how it looks and fits.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Zipper I have worn this jacket for a few weeks and absolutely loved it: light, good looking and fits well. However, this past weekend I found the zipper got stuck on some adjacent material and now it is impaired and not functioning properly. I mean, come on! Can't anyone design a zipper that is jam proof? Now, I'm sad......

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not For A Downpour I am horrible disappointed, I love this brand they have good quality products. I am a 5' 6" 160 and its true to fit I bought a large for layering and it works fine. The good things about it is that it is light and very packable, and super breathable. The bad is in a downpour this thing lasts about 5 minutes before your drenched to the core, also a hat is the only way your face wont get wet. it could easily have side pockets and still be the lightest jacket around. As far as the minimalist is concerned, Its fine but definitely bring a heavier backup if your going to the mountains.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightest jacket ever. It's small, compact, lightweight and does the job well for what it is. The fit is true to size for me. I'm 5'6" and 159 lbs, so not the skinniest or tall but I'm fit and muscular. I ordered the medium and it fits me nicely. Have yet to take it out on a rainy day but a cool morning jog with fog was not a problem. Breathability is adequate, and the material dries rather quick. My favorite feature of this jacket is how compact it is for stowing. I can pack it down and can have it with me anywhere. I never leave home without it now. It easily fits in one of my cargo pants pocket even. Usually though it's inside my edc bag. I give it a 4 star because it is a bit on the pricey side. Another $20 off and this would be a solid 5 star.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product This thing is great and serves it's function perfectly. Just wish it didn't look like I was wearing a trash bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from high warmth to weight gain worn over any layer while it hefts like tissue paper it has actually stood up to mild abrasion. Zippers on mine work flawlessly. Good wind resistance. I was expecting next to no rain resistance and was pleasantly surprised that it actually kept me dry in a light drizzle. Often I want to go out with just a shirt or sweater but always feel obliged to take something for unexpected rain/wind/temperature drops. Folded down flat in a rear pants pocket this thing disappears. Excellent value for what it accomplishes with 3 oz.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ghost Lite Jacket I could not find one in any stores to actually see what the jacket looked like and check out the material. So had to order on line. I was hoping to use for golf and expected it to be light but not like cellophane. I take a large in all my jackets and this large was quite tight for my liking and ability to use for golfing. Most likely if I would have had a chance to review in a store first I would not have bought.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Zipper This item has the worst zipper I have ever seen. It is almost impossible to start the zipper and then get it open after.
