Men's Ghost Whisperer™ Down Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! This jacket is so light that you hardly feel it on. Wearing it is a joy! With only a shirt underneath, it's warm down to the low 50's, but layered underneath another jacket, or over the top of a sweater, it's toasty warm in considerably colder weather. My wife and I now both have one. We've love the Ghost Whisperer jacket!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down best jacket on the market Everything from fit to function on this jacket is amazing. I've not only bought one, but two - and helped brainwash five other purchases. I've used this in -20 weather and felt extremely comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Ran this up four 14ers within a week of receiving it. Temps ranging from 19 degrees to about 40, some periods of high winds and blowing snow scouring my face - jacket was a perfect outer layer that kept me warm and was easily regulated by venting with the zipper. I was worried that being so light it might also tear if looked at the wrong way, but I actually took a good spill on some talus. I have a bruise and a scab on my elbow, but the jacket itself did not rip and does not show any sign of damage. Obscenely expensive at regular price, got it on the 70% off sale and am super pleased. Medium fits perfectly, even over workout shirt and knit shirt under it - 6'1", 190lb

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and tight The product is incredible light and warm for it's weight. One concern though, is that it will not hold up in sub-freezing temps as an insulating layer. It would be suggested to have a thicker outer or base layer if this is your insulating layer during sub-freezing temperatures while you're at a standstill. If you are active, this will do great at sub-freezing temps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket! First off, the only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is because I haven't had a chance to put this jacket to the test in the woods yet. I bought it in the summer because of a sale so I haven't really used it yet. But, first impressions are awesome. This jacket is insanely light! It is amazing that a jacket that weighs hardly nothing can be as warm as this. The fit is PERFECT. I am 5'6" and weigh 140 pounds. I can easily layer underneath this with a mid-weight layer and a t-shirt. The only thing I am a little concerned about is the zippers. They don't seem to be as high of quality as the rest of the jacket. Time will tell about how they hold up. Other than that, I love this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gear. Eagle Scout stamp of approval So light and toasty. Fit is great. I wear large shirts mostly and medium jackets, and as I expected the medium fit well. A touch of room inside for layering and still no extra bulk when wearing a shell or outer layer. I've combined a MH Supervharger shell with my Ghostwhisperer and it's a perfect fitting combo. Both light and good looking. I only wish it was more durable so I could wear it worry free all the time but like all gear, no gear can do everything perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit runs small IMO I love this jacket however it runs pretty small. not designed for heavyset people. I am 5'8" 230 lbs. Unfortunately most of this weight is in my midsection (gut). For reference I wear a size 36/30 pants. I had to get an XL jacket in order to fit my waist and shoulders but the arms are pretty long. I originally ordered a large and it fit in the shoulders, the arms were just a tad long, nothing I couldn't live with but it was too small in the waist. The XL is what I will have to live with. Just as an FYI, I have tried other brands similar to this one and I have had the same problem. I purchased this on sale and would not recommend this at full price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the concept Love the lightness and it's neat to pack into its own pocket. Once unfurled, it seems to be a bit tight in the shoulders but a bit loose in the body. Guess that's for layering, but I hope when I cross my arms the stitching doesn't rip. The hooded version would have been more useful so I'll keep an eye out for that one. Haven't tried it in the cold yet but winter is coming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect So good that I bought a second one for when I wear my first one out, and I never do that! As advertised, crazy light and packable for backpacking, yet incredibly warm. Fit is absolutely perfect for me with size M and that rarely happens because I am tall (6'1" 170lb) with a thin torso and long arms, and jackets like this are usually baggy on me, with sleeves that are too short. LOVE IT! Although I imagine people of opposite body habitus might find it tight in the middle and sleeves too long.
