13 Jan 2014 Staying warm in Ohiopyle with the Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket
We might be warming up a bit here in Ohiopyle from last week’s deep freeze, but it’s still winter so it is crucial to have the proper gear to stay warm. Growing up in Wisconsin exposed me to brutal cold temps to the point where you cannot even stand being outside. That was back in the day where your mom dressed you up like the kid from “A Christmas Story.” Today I found the PERFECT jacket to stay warm, comfortable, and stylish. I ventured out for an hour hike in the windy 9 degree weather wearing the Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket. At first I questioned how this thin, 8 ounce jacket could possibly keep me warm. I noticed right away that my core was warm and I did not feel the extreme wind anywhere but my face (must wear scarf next time). As I started to get my heart rate up I became very comfortable and warm. I had a lot of movement in my arms without any bulk. The jacket is breathable, moisture resistant, and has a stylish fit. It can also be packed down very small for travel! Don’t believe me? Check out the specs: The lightest down jacket anywhere now with Q.Shield™ Down.
