Here I am holding the Mountain Hardwear women’s Ghost Whisperer hooded down jacket. You can see how small this packs down. It is actually packed down into a stow pocket. With the light weight fabrics and 850 fill down, this jacket weighs in at just under eight ounces. It makes it a great option for backpacking or climbing when you need something that packs really small and is super light weight.
This jacket is filled with high quality 850 fill Q shield down. And Q shield down is just a treatment that is applied to each of the down feathers that gives it high performance in damp conditions. So unlike traditional down, this jacket is going to have the packability, you know, the light weight feature of regular down without sacrificing its performance in damp conditions.
The features of this jacket are really simple. You have a single elastic draw cord around the hem, two hand warmer pockets. There is a storm flap behind the main zipper to hold in heat. A very simple lycra cuff and the same around the hood.
I would say the fit of this jacket is definitely a little bit trim. I normally wear a small and most ever where pieces in other brands and this is a medium and it seems to fit me pretty well. I can definitely get some layers underneath of this and if I want to wear a shell over top it doesn't seem too bulky, which makes it a great layering piece for milder conditions. This would definitely be a good outer wear piece and in colder conditions you would want to wear a shell over top.
All in all the Ghost Whisperer jacket is your go to ultra light down jacket.
