This year, the Ghost Whisperer has been usurped from our Editors' Choice award by the Arc'teryx Cerium SV Hoody. It is still a definite award winner, earning our Top Pick as an ultralight down jacket. This model is excellent for those who don't need quite as much warmth and that value extreme lightweight clothing, or for those looking for a lightweight insulating jacket to layer under a hard shell or a bigger puffy jacket. This was our favorite to use under the other award winner, the Cerium, for those ultra cold days ice climbing.
The Women's Ghost Whisperer is also available without the bulk of a hood, check it out here; Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket - Women's The addition of a hood to any jacket provides extra warmth, but we also understand that it also adds bulk. If you're looking for a more streamlined layering option, check out the Ghost Whisperer Jacket.
