Men's Phantom™ Hooded Down Jacket is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light, quality warmth. This jacket hits all the right points on paper. 850 down, baffled construction, light fabrics, no frills, etc. Layered correctly, this becomes a 6000m parka. Colin O'Brady used it on Aconcagua. The fit is slightly narrow for my shoulders but otherwise perfect. Had to attach a bigger zipper pull. The hood is also a little funky shaped compared to the similar Nilas. I wish it had a rear shock cord adjuster as well. This parka however has baffled arms and is decidedly better than the Nilas in that regard. This has 180g of 850 vs Nilas 215g. I have used it on Rainier and Hood in winter. Does its job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works I love this Jacket. In 10 degree weather I can wear only a t-shirt and be warm. Backcountry snowboarding I'll wear a t-shirt, this jacket, and a shell and be warm in a whiteout. I most often use it as a belay jacket and it works like a charm to keep warm in cold and wet conditions while waiting on my climbing partner. Also, my wife says I'm the reason we can't have nice things (I tend to break stuff), but I've had this jacket for a year and haven't busted it yet! Its a great jacket that does exactly what it says. Only downside is that the stuff-in-pocket stuff sack is kind of hard to use, and its a fairly large brick once stuffed in the pocket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Climbing Jacket I got to use this jacket over the past winter in Alaska. I used it on a winter climb on Mount Sanford and, just recently, for an early season climb on Denali. The jacket is very warm and comfortable, especially when layered. Wind resistance is pretty good and the jacket maintains decent warmth in strong winds (20-30 mph). Though it seems fragile at first glance, the jacket holds up surprisingly well to rougher conditions, though it may not be up to full time wear in harsh, and rough environments. This is a minimalist jacket. There are 2 hand pockets (1 works as a stow pouch), an internal napoleon pocket and 2 internal stash pockets. The hand pockets are still accessible with a harness on. The hood is the only frustrating part of this jacket. There are only 2 drawcords near the chin that are perfect for cinching the hood down over your eyes, there's no cord on the back to keep the hood out of your face. It works if you have a cap or helmet on though. The jacket works great for what most climbers need, a lightweight jacket for stationary locations and summit day. If you're doing higher peaks or ascents in the dead of winter where you may wear this 95% of the time, a burlier jacket might be necessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light and compressible parka I am really pleased with this product as a whole. I bought this with the intent that it would be suitable for my warmest insulation layer on trips and climbs where I expect frequent temperatures under 25 degrees F. I tend to stick to synthetics when temps are mostly over 25. Just due to poor timing this winter I never got to really put this jacket into a very cold situation. I can't comment as to the temperature range that this jacket was comfortable to me. The loft is about what I get from a 20 degree sleeping bag; pretty good. Considering this goes on over other layers and isn't generally used as a sleeping garment, I expect that based on loft alone this jacket will be warm enough for long and very sedentary activity (waiting out a storm for example) from around 0-5 degrees F at the extreme end, and for temps down to -20 during moderate activity, such as walking in flat terrain at a casual pace. The hood is large, maybe a touch too large for a modern lightweight climbing helmet. Otherwise the fit is great. The zipper is a tad dainty and requires a bit of care to seat properly before zipping. The chest seems filled with less density of down than the arms. I think that in practice this won't matter as much, the core doesn't cool as quickly as the extremities so perhaps this is a more efficient use of the fill weight than just simple even distribution. If a harness is worn over the jacket some of the torso loft is lost anyways. In any case I probably won't know for sure until next winter. Fabric is not "burly", expected for this category of item, so think about what this will be exposed to. The absolute zero parka has a tougher exterior fabric for more "full time use" in extreme temps; whereas the phantom is more for stationary periods while belaying, at camp, etc; during cold but not extreme weather, or during highly active light/fast ascents in very cold weather. Would make a good addition to the type of down bags that come with less fill in the chest to work with a parka to save overall weight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Men's Phantom Hooded Down Jacket purchased this jacket for use in cold weather when doing photography. Just received it and only had it for about 1 week but going to return it. overall construction is good and it has plenty of insulation but two issues are deal killers: First the hood. This hood is made to incorporate wearing a climbing helmet, as such it is way to large and effectively unusable for just your head. it's like putting a tent over your head. there is a drawstring, but when this is tightened down it closes over your face. Other MHW jackets have an adjustable strap on the back to pull the hood back but not this one. if you're not wearing a large helmet underneath, the hood is unuseable. Second, the zipper. it takes me 6-8 tries to get the zipper to engage at the bottom of the jacket. thought this was just me but I see this in other reviews. clearly a design or zipper defect. if it is this difficult to engage in the comfort of my home, what's it like when it's 10 degrees, in the dark with gloves? This could have been a great jacket, but it's fatally flawed by these two issues. I wonder if the product designers ever put it on to try out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits really large I thought this fit way too large and sent it back. I usually take a large but this was huge. I'm 6'1" 165#. Maybe medium would work. Very nice otherwise. Not heavily stuffed with down. I think it was cut large perhaps to use as a belay jacket over your soft shell etc. I had some items ordered before that were cut really large and contacted the company who had some reasons for the surprise like they were intended to layer over thick stuff, loose for rock climbing, etc. Too bad there isn't more info on the website up front.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good jacket I originally bought this jacket for a filmingtrip to Nepal and served me very well. The jacket is very puffy and very good at keeping you warm even while just standing in the same place for a long time. For most conditions this jacket would be far too warm during any strenuous physical activity but is perfect for high altitude ventures or for keeping you warm while potty training your puppy in steamboat. my only complaint would be that the zipper can be a bit finicky but that is easy to overlook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and light An excellent jacket, often compaired to the compatable western mountaineering, it does a great job keeping you warm. I've used it in temps around 10 degrees F successfully in connection with the BD BD mercury mitt. The hood is nice and large with plenty of room for a helmet. The new wrist cuffs remind me of the seventies, but function well. If I was to ask for any changes I think O would request more down as the loft is not quite as much as I hoped for. It hasnt yet been a problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I love this jacket. Super warm and comfortable. My only grip is that it fit snug when wearing a fleece underneath. The sleeves are the tightest...
