Discovered as part of the Ueli Steck project, the Ghost Whisperer fabric is super light yet ultra strong and durable, which is why Mountain Hardwear have chosen it as the face fabric for their pinnacle down jacket.
The Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket uses 850 fill down for a high warmth to weight ratio and is also water repellant, as it uses Q. Shield Down, a hydrophobic treatment that means that it stays warm, even when wet.
At only 212g, this is a super lightweight performance piece that maximizes warmth, yet packs down into it's own pocket, creating a easy to stow item for potential cold weather protection.
