Men's Ghost Whisperer™ Anorak is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Large size fit too close on my in-shape torso to allow wearing even a vest underneath. A true anorak fits loosely and comes well below the waist which this one does not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used on Kilimanjaro I gotta say how practical this Anorak is. I usually just keep the jacket in my camera bag or my briefcase for light travel needs. It's saved my butt on planes that can't regulate their ac properly, chilly days when I'm delayed outside or I just need a little extra if my body is exhausted from travel. But I took it on a trip to Kilimanjaro a couple of weeks ago and it proved the perfect breaker for the chilly winds under a blistering sun. I tried my North Face wind jacket and it was too hot for trekking, same even with fleeces. This was just perfect. In fact I wore a light fleece, this and a down jacket to the summit. I kept the down jacket unzipped and even in -15c I had my hat off, light gloves the 25 knot winds didn't touch my core. I'm a big fan. I am getting another just for my travel bag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Expensive Was hoping this would be a great windbreaker, but color "white" is really transparent. Not a good value for the price. Dissappointed that it looks like inexpensive rain jacket from discount camping store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insurance Policy I'm not sure this is a jacket so much as an insurance policy for surprises. If I actually think I'm going need a jacket, I bring the Patagonia Houdini or the Men's Effusion™ Hooded Jacket (see my review). Since I bought this jacket, I've been throwing it in my pocket or hydration pack when I DON'T think I'll need it, and once or twice it's saved me from a chilly wind. It appears to be waterproof (breathability doesn't strike me as great, if that's proof), but I haven't actually worn it in the rain yet. Note that there is no hood. It wouldn't be my first investment for drier climates like Utah, but I remember a stretch of rock climbing in Switzerland with many wet rappels where it would have been so nice to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome so far I was amazed at how light and thin this jacket is when it arrived. I've used it on about five bike rides so far to shied me from the wind, rain and cold. So far so good. has kept me dry and actually not too hot, meaning it seems to breathe well. To put into context my rides have been 30-50 miles each in the Mid Atlantic. I will be using it in N. California soon where I expect it to great because it packs so small and is so light I can use it for all the different weather conditions I experience on a ride. My only concern so far is will it hold up. Looks pretty strong and not a single issue yet. I have simply not had it long enough or used it enough to be able to give it a highest rating on quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightest shell I have ever worn This shell is amazing, light as a feather and very comfortable. I run outdoors every day all year long. Even after a 1 1/2 hr run, this shell is still comfortable while sweating. Freaky thin and well made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from too minimal this one goes too far in the wrong direction. cuffs seem weak, fit is a bit small, overall quality seems too lack. it's over priced for what it is - should have had some better attention to detail such as stronger seams and or more substantial elastic at the cuffs. it's sleek and slim - packs super tight/small but is so thin i wouldn't expect it to last very long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket rocks I use it for all kinds of activities here in the interior of Alaska and love it!!! I dont know that I would wear it under a big pack, but have used it under a day pack with no issues. I used it on Mount Healey the other day and the wind was blowing 20 with gust to 30 and it stopped the wind and chill right in its tracks I pack it on every trip I take!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. Best trail running jacket out this year I purchased this shortly after it came out this year. It's taken the place of many other running jackets. First it breaths VERY well. I've used it here in Utah during snow storms and rain early on this spring / summer. No problem over heating on long mountain runs and it's kept me dry even with a pack on. I've found it feels best with a very light weight long sleeve shirt but still feels great with a short sleeve T. The ability of this jacket to pack so small makes it the best. I can put it in a small pocket on my running pack and not have to worry about the weight.
