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, an amazing sale surfaces even as the temps are dropping. Such is the case with Mountain Hardwear’s Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket, which is currently going for a hard-to-fathom 45 percent off at Backcountry.
This isn’t any old down jacket, either. The Ghost Whisperer is a top-of-the-line item, an ultralight option that’s perfect for climbing, hiking, backpacking and other outdoor adventures. 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.
The only caveat is that the massive discount only applies to one color: manta grey. But it is available in a range of sizes, and there are smaller discounts on two other colors if you’re more picky than thrifty.
