Whether you live for Halloween parties and hair-rising hijinx or not, if you're looking for a ridiculously lightweight but super warm parka to wear on deadly cold nights, check out the Mountain Hardwear Women's Ghost Whisperer Down Parka. This ultralight jacket barely makes a dent on the scale, weighing in at a measly 9 ounces, and still packs a wallop of warmth with 850-fill down. When you're tired of the weight of the world on your shoulders and you need a warm parka, reach for the Ghost Whisperer for heavyweight warmth and a lightweight feel. Down is known for providing superior warmth without significant weight, but with a substantive failing--when wet, down is as warm as your birthday suit (not very warm). So the folks at Mountain Hardwear engineered Q. Shield Down. Traditional down, a mix of feathers and plumules, is infused with permanent water-repellancy, and the fibers retain their loft even when exposed to moisture. So long as the down stays lofty, it retains its insulating abilities and you stay warm. While this jacket won't withstand a downpour, you'll have plenty of time to find shelter from the storm without ending up with the chills. Ghost Whisperer ultra-light fabric is naturally windproof and water-resistant, offering protection from wind-whipped flurries and sleet. Sewn-through baffles prevent the down from shifting and leaving bare spots, and articulated quilting at the waist offers definition without constriction. Princess seams enhance the distinctly feminine shape of this cozy parka, and on-seam pockets provide storage without changing the sweet shape of the jacket. Stay warm and ladylike through bitter cold or freezing drizzle in this lightweight down parka.
