Men's Nilas™ Jacket is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and great quality Cuts down on weight and stays very warm even when it’s very cold. Dries quickly. Good pockets and hood. Great mountaineering parka.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for those high alpine stays i got this jacket for alpine climbing and for freezing belaying points. i was lucky enough to attend an ice climbing festival last weekend and wore the jacket while it was dumping snow. needles to say the jacket was amazing, water resistant outer kept me dry and warm. the snow didn't even melt onto the shell it just fell off. the hood fit snug over my helmet while i was belaying and was able to fit tightly on my head without the helmet. My only negative thought about the jacket is the zippers, the main zipper snags on the material inside every now and then and the pocket zippers are difficult to open with gloves on. Overall this is one of the warmest jackets i have ever warn and i will keep it in my cold weather arsenal for years to come. hands down would recommend this jacket to anyone considering a comfortable, warm, and versatile jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect winter gear I’ve owned the ghost whisperer jacket for years and it served me well. I was looking for a bit more protection but not a lot more bulk. This jacket is next level. I love the little touches like the thumb holes to keep the sleeves down below your gloves and the easy to use cinches for the hood and body of the jacket. The only thing I would change is make the zipper a little easier to use with gloves on. It’s a bit stiff and the handle is small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Half the teams turned back because of the cold I wore this jacket for a month long trip in the Himalayas for a Mere/Island peak climb. On the Mera climb, half the teams turned back because of the cold once you hit the glacial plateau. I was able to summit in this jacket with a light fleece and t-shirt. I held out as long as I could with the ghost whisperer until I absolutely had to upgrade to a heavier layer. This jacket was comfortable in camp and while on the move. I am going to take this on a winter attempt of Mont Blanc to see how it does.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very warm I have not had a chance to take the Nilas on the mountains yet but I did wear it on a 4 hour hikein -18C (0F) weather and it was more than warm enough. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent down jacket I wore this jacket for a week in cold (20 F or less) and windy conditions before writing this review. The best part of this jacket is the fit: the arms are snug and not too puffy, the hood fits well without a helmet, the body fits close and is long enough to cover the butt. I bought the jacket in XS to get as tight a fit on my chest as possible. I like wearing t-shirts or thin long sleeve shirts in the winter. There is enough room in the hood for a climbing helmet but not a ski helmet. The sleeve cuffs work well and I liked the inside phone pocket. The fleece fabric around the chin is good. I would like to have the hood lined in the same material to reduce noise when the hood is up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for winter mountaineering My second Nilas (first was stolen) and I have used it on several expeditions including Aconcagua. It always kept me warm and there was no issues with packing down or cold spots. Its very practical to use with a harness and backpack and the quality is great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket, no issues, buy it I've used the Nilas on several trips. It's very warm, well put together, light weight and highly compressible as you'd expect. Q shield seems to be effective as advertised. I'm 6' / 195 lbs and have the large (normally wear just a base and my Desna hoody under it). Bottom line, I'm happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its a jacket Bought this for Mt. Rainier, Denali, and possible Peru or Argentina higher mountains. I live in a hot climate so I have not had a chance to use this jacket. First impression the jacket fit great. I am 6'2" 185lbs and send back a medium. It fit great but was just a bit small with many layers on beneath it; the large fit my needs much better. Only issue I see so far is the zipper is a little finicky and I think it could be hard to operate with heavy gloves in a windy and cold climate. I can't wait to get out and field test this thing.
