Mountain Hardwear's Ghost Whisperer Down Vest uses proprietary in-house fabrics and moisture resistant 800 Fill Power down to create a super light mid-layer.
Mountain Hardwear says:
The world's lightest full-featured hooded down vest, its Nikwax Hydrophobic Down 800-fill insulation resists moisture and demonstrates superior loft and heat-generating air entrapment even when wet.
Mountain Hardwear's Ghost Whisperer garments are leading edge, designed to be the lightest in their class every component has been examined for its contribution to that low weight. Yet there is very little compromise on features, the jacket still has two handwarmer pockets, a cinchable hem and an insulated backing flap to the front zip.
The arm holes are lightly elasticated. 43 grams of down isn't a lot, you can compare the amount of down with other jackets in this category to get an idea of their relative warmth. The Ghost Whisperer uses slightly higher quality down than most others.
The Ghost Whisperer series are well designed and well made - an amazing piece of kit.
