Men's Ghost Whisperer™ Down Jacket is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Warmth, you won't be disappointed Every aspect of this jacket scream quality and no wonder it has won so many awards. I've never had such a lightweight jacket; I was worried it wouldn't be warm. Turns out I had nothing to worry about. Extremely warm; and feels great. Love the style and features.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Men’s ghost jacket review I love the style and look of the jacket. However, for a $300 jacket I would expect a lot better quality. The down feathers are already coming out of the jacket and I’ve only had it for a week. At this point I would like a refund. But i like the look a lot so hopefully it lasts longer than a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly warm and protective while feeling like wearing nothing at all! Pros: The product team at Mountain Hard Wear named this jacket perfectly. At 8oz, you won't believe how light this jacket is. I've eaten bags of snack-sized doritos that weigh more than this thing! I bought this jacket to wear while sitting in hockey rinks and on the sidelines of football and soccer fields in the fall and early springs in New England. I've owned mine for about 8 months now and it still looks brand new. The fabric has held up perfectly and it has exceeded my expectations. While wearing the jacket, not once have I thought to myself, "I should have put on a heavier jacket." The thing just works! It's not waterproof but holds up nicely in a sprinkle or light rain. I won't wear it by itself when the temp drops into the freezing zone, but I certainly will wear it as a liner with the various shells I own. Fit: I'm 6'3, 215 lbs and wear a 44L sports coat. My Large "Ghost Whisperer" fits like a glove. (I am athletic and like my clothes a bit on the trim side. If you're around my height and you don't usually buy trim fit dress shirts because they are a bit snug, go for the XL) Cons: I have to figure out a way to keep my two high school aged son's from stealing it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need, nothing you don't Bought this as an ultralight upgrade to my current insulated jacket, which is significantly heavier and bulkier. Haven't had a chance to test it yet but I've no reason to doubt the countless 5-star reviews. Water-resistant down is a huge improvement from untreated down and was the major reason I chose the GW over other down jackets. I'm 5'10" and 175lbs and medium fits perfectly. Fit is trim but not tight. Actual weight is 209g, which matches the listed spec. I suppose the only downside is that it's expensive but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this jacket I got this jacket a few weeks ago. I purchased I am still a growing kiddo so I ordered it bigger then I needed so I could grow into it so I can't really atest to the size. Regardless, picking up this jacket feels like picking up air yet it is shockingly warm. It is super comfy and packs small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightest Jacket ever! I absolutely love this jacket, since purchasing I have used it on four trips and i can honestly say I've never been more happy with a piece of technical gear ever. It is warm, it is light, and it packs small its the best of all worlds. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So light you have to hang on to it so it doesn't float away WOW! This must have been made with the lightest feathers. It's so light and warm (as a mid-layer). The fit is trim and fitted (5'-8", 165#). When not worn, it fits so snugly in a pocket. Use care with the very light fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fire season jacket Ordered this jacket to a fire camp in September. Made it on time for cold part of the fire season. Used as plow. Fitted well into my pack. And keep me warm. Would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't leave home without this jacket. This jacket was essential to my most recent trip and will be invaluable on my thru hike of the JMT this summer. I never thought I would be able to cram an 800 fill down jacket into my pockets, but this jacket proved me wrong. I was able to cram this thing into any small spare crevice or pocket of my pack at all times and wore it 80% of the time I was not actually hiking. The warmth is incredible and even though it looks super fragile it's a very sturdy material. I was thrilled to be able to pack this and a supercharger shell into my day pack during a summit bid on one of my 'off days', I was able to travel super light without sacrificing my warmth or protection from the wind & rain. the q-shield technology makes me confident when travelling in the high sierra where a storm can strike at any time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Jacket of self destruction. I loved this jacket from the very beginning, great fit, looks awesome, incredibly light, and perfectly warm. But, the thread used to keep the down in place, is the weakest bit of thread I've ever seen. And the pockets, love to grab it. But not just the pockets. Throwing on a top layer or backpack that has the slightest bit of grip or rough section? They'll grab and pop the threads. I've owned this jacket for less than a year, and the down in the arms is all congregating at the ends of the sleeves in larger and larger quantities as threads are snapped, and baffles open up. I know other people with the same jacket, and they all have the same issue.
