Price Paid: $68
I wasn't expecting much from this gift. I haven't had great luck with OR in the past. I was extremely surprised when I took a good look at it and tried it on. It fits great, the zipper goes all the way down my chest and keeps me cool on the uphills. The pocket isn't big enough to put too much in -- about the size of your hand, it's great for a small map or Ipod. The inner fleece is soft enough to wear as a baselayer but I usually keep it as a midlayer or light outerlayer. I live in the Appalachians and spend a lot of time in wet weather, and this pullover shrugs off light rain

This fleece is so soft, you will not even feel it on, sorta like the ghost that is following you.

Take the Specter Pullover with you on your next backcountry trip for that lightweight ultra-stretchy mid-layer. The smooth durable outer surface is long-wearing and bunch-free when layering. The inner fleece is incredibly soft and comfortable yet capable of wicking moisture after skinning up your favorite mountain. The deep front zip makes it easy to pull on and vent excess heat during your push to the summit. After your climb you'll still be reaching for the Specter Pullover even on lazy weekends when you just need a little extra warmth.
