The Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket is the lightest fully featured down jacket in the world at 7 oz. It's incredibly warm and packs down smaller and lighter than four Clif Bars.
Mountain Hardwear completely reinvented nylon to create the Ghost Whisperer fabric — an incredibly lightweight, stretchy, wind and water resistant nylon. We talked to the company's head designer about how it's made.
Down jackets are the de facto standard of winter clothing. They're light, flexible, warm and so far, no one's been able to make something better. Well, until now. North Face might've just made a jacket that's better than down. It's called ThermoBall.
