Mountain Hardwear is one of our old favorites and we're excited to have it back in stores. They produce performance apparel and equipment with the outdoor athlete in mind. With their innovative technologies, Mountain Hardwear has developed lightweight, technical products that allow people to push themselves to the extreme.
One really interesting product we carry is their Ghost Whisperer Down Vest. There are a few key factors that make this down vest different than most. Weighing in at only 5 oz., this vest is super lightweight. When alpine climbing or extended backpacking, every ounce counts and Mountain Hardwear knows this. In order to provide an extremely lightweight and technical fabric, they had to invent their own. The Ghost Whisperer Fabric is downproof, windproof, and water resistant and there is only one mill in the world that can weave it. Insulted with their own Q.Shield™ Down, this vest proves excellent at trapping body heat. Made of goose down and infused with a permanent water repellency, this vest maintains its insulating abilities even when exposed to moisture. This is very important because when down gets wet, its thermal properties are virtually eliminated. Gear will naturally absorb moisture throughout a trip so the Ghost Whisperer Down Vest will perform the same on day nine as it did on day one. Among its weight and insulating abilities, this vest can be compacted into its own pocket for quick and easy packing. Overall, the Ghost Whisperer Down Vest is ideal for active outdoor lifestyles in cold, harsher climates.
You can find Mountain Hardwear apparel in all of our locations. Check out your nearest Gearhead Outfitters to try on a Ghost Whisperer Down Vest and see the quality for yourself. We have blue and black vests in medium, large, and extra large. If you are planning a hiking trip this fall or camping in the Colorado Rockies, the Ghost Whisperer Down Vest should be an essential part of your gear.
