Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 91 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by essential piece essential peice for bagging peaks. put pit zips and make it even better for those in between days when you have short hike and dont want to put in pack February 15, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sizing is way off so I returned the Ghost Whisperer It's hard to rate an item that I didn't have a chance to use but here goes. I'm 5'11" 210lbs Athletic build and wear a 46 Regular sports coat and XL jackets from Arc'Teryx , Patagonia and other Mountain Hardware items. This jacket is cut big in the chest , torso and worst of all the arms are so long they went past my finger tips. I wear a 34-35 length sleeve so XL should have been fine. I hope this review saves someone the time and shipping cost I wasted giving this jacket a shot. The one quality flaw I noticed is that the tiny zipper is inadequate and I struggled to zip and unzip the jacket just trying it on so I know that's most likely going to fail. February 10, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Overpriced for bad zippers/stitching and design Main and pocket zippers are very low quality. The arms of the jacket are constantly "snagging" on the pocket zippers. After inspection I found the stitching on the arm is being pulled on by the pocket zipper when I raise my arms. Also, the "down" feathers move around and migrate way from areas like the inside of your elbows leaving you with cold spots. Love the softness and warmth of the coat, but it will end up going back for warranty soon. I have had the coat for 30 days. January 25, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by not great. I know this is an 'award winner' and i had high hopes and i can respect that. I wore this jacket for one solitary day...or a few hrs...my 650 down jkts as warm or warmer and i felt no need for them to be lighter. I never felt like i truly was comfortably warm in this jkt and it was not very very cold out and i was walking/exercising. The low profile design to this is spectacular though - you barely notice it being on! Additionally, mine began to leak feathers on day one, not good. Not any better in my estimation than any other down fill jkt, any brand including 650 fill. January 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Meets expectations This jacket is probably the most hyped piece of clothing I've ever purchased. This makes it difficult to be truly blown away by it once you get your hands on it. I'm 6' 0", 180 lbs and the medium fits me perfectly with a long sleeve thermal underneath. It looks like they've added a few extra inches to the sleeves to you can pull them over your hands. The extra length is not noticeable when wearing them at the wrist. As far as warmth goes, I was comfortable with just a t-shirt underneath after in hour in 35 degree, overcast, blustery conditions. It was more than comfortable during a mid-20 degree, 10+ mph wind, three hour hike when I added a rain shell and a thermal base layer. I imagine I would have continued to be comfortable well into the single digits with this setup. My only gripes are minor. I find about one down feather a day poking out of the jacket, but I imagine it would take a long time before this produced any noticeable loss in loft. The second, it that I do find the zipper getting stuck on the fabric every couple of times, but it comes undone pretty easily. In conclusion, this jacket lives up to its enormous amount of hype and its only shortcomings are fairly minor, but enough to knock it back to 4 stars. January 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ghost Whisperer Shark Review Very nice product. Crazy warmth for a jacket of such lightweight. The jacket does get a lot of looks and questions because it appears to be a puffy, thin skinned sleeping bag with arms. With that, the material IS very thin and I'm constantly worried about ripping it or snagging it. I'm 5'9" 165lbs. The medium is pretty form fitting but comfortable. Might consider a size larger if you like a loose fit. January 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great tech, but sent back for a fix after a month I absolutely love this jacket - warm and light as advertised. But after having it less than a month and wearing it only a handful of times, a big stitch popped out of one of the seams. Now it's in for warranty repair, and I have no idea when I'll get it back. I'm new to buying Mountain Hardwear gear, so not sure if this is par for the course or not. Not thrilled, but hoping it all works out. MH seems like rock-solid gear. January 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It really is like wearing warm air. This is the best jacket ive ever owned. It lives up to its claim of feeling like warm air hugging you. This jacket is incredibly warm; as if it were forged from angel tears by the gods of science. January 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded All Needs Went down to our local Mountain Hardware store (Seattle) and was gifted one of these bad boys for Christmas. The jacket had to be my primary jacket for a trip through SE Asia, which was really needed for Vietnam and South Korea. However, since we were going all around, I needed a jacket that could keep me warm with less layers and easily pack away for travel. The Ghost Whisperer is by far my favorite jacket I own and I'm sure you'll feel the same way once you pick one up too. The fit is great and so is the coloring. Held up well in light rain and handled the wind very well when zip lining. January 7, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Function / Terrible Fit As the other reviewers have stated, the general function is great, warm in cold temps (20 degrees), elastic to tighten around the waist, very light and compact. That's all great but the fit and colors are way off. 5' 10" 178 - athletic build. The medium size fits Tommy Boy tight and the large is built for extremely large bellies and arms that extend to your knees. It's not just unflattering but it minimizes the effectiveness of basic heat retention. My other issue is the color. The red is more orange which is fine, but I wouldn't have ordered it if that were clear on the website. It doesn't matter how great a jacket is if it doesn't fit. Last point - $6 to ship a 1 pound envelope in 10 days is crazy. Unrelated to the jacket review, but way outside of current shipping standards for online purchasing. January 5, 2016
