Pros Inexpensive, lightweightIncredibly light, compact, warm for its size and weight, packs into its own pocketVery warm, lightweight, versatile, great featuresDurable, weather resistant, athletic cut, good movement, versatileGreat generalist jacket, ethically harvested down, very cozy
Cons Less warm, lower quality downNo way to cinch the hood, lighter materials are more fragileMore expensive, less stylish, less durableNarrower baffles compress downFabric gets dirty easily, truly excels in no category
Bottom Line This is a very light, entry-level down jacket for limited use and moderate temperatures.The Ghost Whisperer is as light as a ghost, or so we assume, and boasts incredible warmth for the weight.This is an excellent lightweight down jacket that is twice as warm as the competition: an excellent severe weather jacket for ice climbs and ski tours.This is a durable, versatile, and very comfortable jacket that can handle many activities, from mountain to town.The down sweater is a comfortable, warm down jacket with many applications but which excels in no one category.
