The Mountain Hardwear Hooded Ghost Whisperer is stylish and minimalistically feather light and paper thin. Gear editor Thomas Green explains, "The Ghost Whisperer is compact and the lightest product that we tested in this category. This jacket was designed for climbers but it is also great for travel as it is warm, stylish and easily packs into its own pocket. The Ghost Whisperer also performed better than any of the other contenders tested when wet."

Top Pick - Canada Goose Hybridge Lite Hoody

The Canada Goose Hybridge Lite Hoody was a close contender to the Editor's Choice as it is very similar with 8oz /227g 800 down fill. According to Greene, "The Hybridge Lite Hoody is functional, warm, light and breathable but spendy. We appreciated its weight to warmth ratio and excellent construction materials. We think this piece could be a bonus to your complete layering system."

Best Buy - Montbell Frost Smoke Parka

The Montbell Frost Smoke Parka has many attributes that contribute to its becoming the winner of the Best Buy award. "The Frost Smoke will keep you warm with its velcro cinch located on the hood and deep hand warmer pockets. It's light and durable and its simple features keep the cost down. We think the Frost Smoke is a high performing, durable, warm jacket for its weight and a good value."
