Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Innovative and Versitile 3 Season Staple Pros: The Ghost Whisperer Jacket presents an impressive blend of weightlessness, breathability and durability. Its maintenance of loft when wet and low profile prepares it for an incredible variety of weather conditions. Butter fabric along the inner cuff resists pilling, is as soft as its name, and effectively seals in warmth. Many people fear the Ghost Whisperer fabric is flimsy and prone to tearing. I have yet to experience this and doubt I will. You can tell it was constructed with integrity, precision and attention to detail. Sewing work is clean throughout and notions are functional and sensibly colored. Clever design decisions such as loop for carabiner make this jacket highly user friendly. Cons: While the majority of the garment fits true to size, I find the arm holes of the jacket to be much too snug. It's a shame because everything else about this jacket lends itself to seamless layering and this feature is rather encumbering. I really appreciate the storage pouch-makes packing quite convenient. However, in the pocket that transforms into the pouch, there is an exposed serged seam allowance which is distracting when putting bare hands into pockets for warmth, especially since this seam allowance is absent from the other pocket. This is a minor issue and doesn't effect performance, but unfortunately apparent. Overall a stellar product and highly recommended! If you are looking for a jacket you can throw over a t-shirt, tie around your waist and also pack for a friged alpine trip- look no further. October 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent fit, excellent function This jacket is amazing! It fits perfectly, is incredibly warm and light, and held up well even when it got soaked in an unexpected snow/rain storm. This jacket is now a permanent part of my backpacking gear. My only complaint is the zipper--it sometimes gets jammed and seems too small and puny for the jacket. September 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Warmth without the Bulk I love this feather weight jacket. Yes it is a bit blocky in shape and snug under some arms, but there is a drawstring at the bottom. I can't tell you how much I've loved the hoodless version, perhaps buying one with a hood makes the point. I wear it around the house when cold, always in my pack for every hike, and most climbs (careful on sharp rock). I wish I could afford one in every color! August 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Warm and Light I've taken this on a couple of mountain backpacking trips and it's super light and comfortable. Haven't been able to test it in really cold conditions yet, but I expect it to need a windproof layer added when the temps get low or the wind picks up. July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This jacket can take a beating. I got this jacket last fall, it came on a waterfall climbing and glacier hiking excursion in Iceland in January, snowboarding, ice climbing and it has been through my washing machine twice so far and the fabric and feathers are as good as when I got it. This Jacket is GREAT! I am 5'01 and 115lbs, and the XS fits well everywhere, the only place I would like some more room is in the shoulders, but as long as I don't have too many layers underneath it fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite Jacket I bought this jacket at a recommendation from a few friends who had it. It is the lighest, warmest, most comfortable jacket I have ever owned. I wear it as a puffy outerlayer or as a baselayer. I sometimes forget I'm wearing it it's so light. The one thing I would say is that it doesn't do great in wind, but it's not meant to! I take this jacket with me everywhere. Great purchase. February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome MidLayer This jacket is near perfection. It is exceptionally warm for its purpose, yet it breathes very well. The only down fall is that if you are wearing while the pocket zippers are open, the material snags on the zippers. Overall it is a great jacket and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good compressible mid layer. February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'm in love -cozy cozy love This is the best under layer ever. And it's cute and cozy. In the dead of winter I layer it under a MHW shell, and it does the trick. Can't wait until spring when I can wear it on its own. January 27, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Prone to tear - not warm enough This jacket is super cool and cute. So gold star for style and hipness. It's very light which is awesome for backpacking and "layering". I am emphasizing "layering" because this jacket is not warm enough to wear alone! It's VERY THIN. Additionally, this jacket is very filmsy! My dog jumped on my jacket and scratch the jacket which resulted in a big hole. January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ghost Whisperer=Great jacket, but... I love this jacket, however, it is a bit tighter than should be in the arm/underarm region. I wish the armholes were a tad larger. The jacket fits great otherwise. If I had tried it on in the store before buying, I probably would have passed it up--tight armholes limit what I can wear under it, and add to underarm odor. I am a straight medium in most gear, so ordered medium here as well. The large would have been too loose. I've worn it daily since receiving it--it works well under another down jacket during cold weather. I carried it in a pack while skiing in a wet snow. The outer jacket got slightly damp, but the down kept its loft and the jacket was warm when I put it on. January 21, 2015
