Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Fits very comfortable, unzipped nice and warm when zipped super warm! Body wise great fit but a bit long on the arms! Besides that i recommend the GW with no doubt! I got the Serpent Green which stands out amazing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Major design flaw Everything about this jacket is great. It's Light, warm and looks cool. I don't ask for much more in a jacket. However, I didn't give it a full 5 stars and I cannot recommend this jacket in its current design, as it suffers from a major design flaw. There is a thread, running the full length of the sleeves, on the inner arm, outside of jacket. When the pockets are open, the thread gets caught on the teeth of the pocket zippers. Everytime I move my arm past the pocket, the sleeve gets caught on the teeth. I have had the jacket for a couple months now and the thread is starting to pull out into loops. At some point, given its current rate of being pulled out, the thread will start pulling out completely and that's that with the jacket. I am in touch with MH about the matter and it sounds like they are very concerned about it and want to follow up with me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket! Great jacket, but since it is so light weight I have found it to be a bit fragile. Use it as an insulating layer and not an outer layer and you wont have any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hidden weapon in any pack I fell in love with this jacket after a short hike to Avalanche Lake in Glacier National Park. It was a cloudy 45 degrees outside and I was itching to get in the water. Had I not had this jacket stuffed away in my day pack, I wouldn't have dove into the water. After drying off I threw this sucker on and within minutes I was toasty and comfortable. Considering how little space it takes up in my pack and how freaking lightweight it is, this jacket is the closest thing to magic that I own. I'm 6'2" and roughly 170lbs, and the medium fits me very well. The instant you put it on you can tell that it has an athletic cut to it. I bring it on all of my cold weather adventures now over a merino wool base layer and sometimes a flannel. With a shell over it I have comfortable skied in subzero temperatures without needing to put on a more insulating mid layer. If you're researching mid layers right now, this jacket is the answer. Lightweight down jackets do not get better than this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No longer Fitted The previous ghost whisperer jacket I own had a fitted look and shape to it, at least how I remember it. My new one is now too big and is flat down the sides. Just not what I was expecting. Plus the green kind of looks like a ninja turtle. Overall, fantastic jacket. Would buy them for the rest of my life if Mtn Hardwear keeps selling them. The temperature regulation is incredible, not too hot if you're just sitting around, not too cold either. Holds body heat better than a whale's blubber. Plus it's as light as a feather and folds into the pocket. And so so soft. Wow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorites This jacket is a great jacket. Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or just someone who is looking to keep warm without all the bulk, this jacket is perfect. You barely recognize it is on as the jacket weight almost nothing. The loft of the down is minimal but it does not effect the warmth at all. The material (at first) felt super thin and you can see light through it. However, the material is actually very strong and does a great job of keeping the wind and water out. The material does have a "swish" noise at it moves past itself (aka walking). This was minimal and was no different than any other jacket. The fit is very true to spec. I am 6'3", 200 lbs, longer in torso, and an athletic build. The length falls about 3-4" below waist, it does not feel tight in the shoulders or arm pits, and full range of motion (with a jacket on). The fit over all is closer to the body (which I greatly prefer). Keep this in mind if you layer often. I have the Amphibian/Aztec Gold jacket. The picture shows the green to be a darker green. In reality it is brighter and lighter in color. So if you order just off the picture, you might not be satisfied. I cannot begin to tell you how many compliments I get on this jacket. Especially when people see how small it folds up to as well. Overall this is an excellent jacket and highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ghost Whisperer I had this little jacket working overtime. My go-to jacket pulled double duty, as light as a sweater with the warmth of a jacket. Small and compact and looks great as soon as it's out no matter how hastily I pack it. I highly recommend it and am completely satisfied with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Had this item for a week now. Weather has been low 30's to teens and windy. Wore this with a UA cold gear 1/4 zip and was perfect. Light weight, well made and warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jacket I've ever owned! I've had many winter jackets, Bean, tnf, Columbia etc. This ghost whisperer is by far the best in an 800 fill I've ever owned. Very warm by itself and with a shell its all I need for the New hampshire weather which can easily go below zero. Thanks Mountain Hardware
