User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Phantom Jacket
Fabric: superlight 15D ripstop nylon
Price Paid: $225.00
I purchased this jacket to wear around camp during winter hikes. although i have not worn it in single digit or sub zero temps yet, it has become my favorite insulated jacket. At 16oz. it is a few ounces heavier than other jackets on the market, but the additional features make up for the added weight. I chose it because the fabric was more durable than its ultra light competitors and has more features. it has a trim athletic fit so it is not bulky if worn under a shell or on its own around town, micro chamois fleece lined hand warmer pockets, micro chamois fleece around the inside collar, and adjustable velcro cuffs. the jacket comes with a stuff sack and compresses down to about the size of a nalgene bottle. it has convenient one handed hem and lower back draw cords that are easy to use with gloves, an inside zip pocket and a chest pocket. this is a really great jacket.
