We’ve often said that the best time to score amazing cold-weather apparel deals is when it’s warm out. However, once in a while, a sweet sale surfaces even as the temps are dropping. Such is the case with Mountain Hardwear’s Ghost Whisperer/2 Jacket, which is 25 percent off —in five different colors and sizes — at Backcountry.
This isn’t any old down jacket, either. Mountain Hardwear made the original Ghost Whisperer to meet the demands of the late Ueli Steck, a Swiss mountaineer who preached a fast-and-light approach to the mountains.
The newer Ghost Whisperer/2 is an ultralight option that’s perfect for skiing, hiking and other outdoor adventures but, because it layers so well, is ideal for town life too. This jacket features easy-packing 800-fill down, ripstop fabric and a hydrophobic treatment to keep you warm and dry should the skies open up.
