Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer 2 – $179.99 (40% Off)
The Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer is one of those legendary pieces of gear that, when spoken of, is referred to in revenant, knowing terms. It’s a down jacket — but really, it’s a huge leap in the weight to warmth ratio that backpackers have been arguing about (and perfecting) for decades.
This is the second edition of the iconic jacket and it features a 100% recycled ripstop shell, RDS-certified down that’s fluorine free, and the Whisperer 10D ripstop material. The entire jacket weighs just 8 oz, has two pockets, and stuffs down smaller than you might believe. It is a super warm, insanely light, form-fitting down jacket that will not disappoint.
Smartwool Merino 250 Baselayer Crew – $74.99 (25% Off)
If there was a single, go-to all-merino wool baselayer we could recommend, it would be the Smartwool Merino 250. It’s a classic because it performs well for technical or casual environments, is made of Smartwool’s warm and soft merino wool, has a fit that works for most people, and manages to hit the perfect mark between resting warmth and active breathability.
There are backpacking nods to design, like the lack of shoulder seams, slim profile for easy layering, and flatlock seam construction that minimizes chafing during extended use. The Smartwool Merino 250 is a midweight baselayer that packs a punch for warmth, and is made of 100% Merino wool.
Get 25% off a classic.
Mountain Hardwear Kor Strata Jacket – $118.99 (40% Off)
The Mountain Hardwear Kor Strata jacket is all about active insulation. It’s made with premium Primaloft Gold Active, a synthetic insulating material that keeps your core warm when still, but breathes exceptionally well when on the move. The Pertex Quantum Air shell fabric aids with breathability, letting air out as you heat up while also serving as a cozy, sleeping bag-esque exterior that sheds light water.
There are three exterior zippered pockets on the Kor Strata, a slim fit, and the best in class breathability for an insulated jacket. You won’t find discounts like this on Mountain Hardwear often — so find your size while supplies last.
Moosejaw Mt. Elliot Insulated Waterproof Jacket – $139.99 (50% Off)
If you are about to enter a heavy winter and find yourself jacket-less — or in need of an upgrade — the Moosejaw Mt. Elliot Jacket is a serious steal. It’s an insulated, fully waterproof jacket that is built to withstand the worst winter has to throw at you.
The shell fabric of the Mt. Elliot uses a 2-layer waterproof membrane that’s windproof and 100% seam sealed to keep water out. Inside there’s 133 gm of PrimaLoft Silver Insulation — more than enough to keep you toasty without a secondary jacket — and 100 gm of PrimaLoft Silver in the hood and sleeves. You will be warm and you will be dry.
Moosejaw spared nothing on the Mt. Elliot: it has YKK Aquagard zippers to keep water out, nine total pockets to store whatever you might need, stretchy cuffs with thumb holes to keep your dexterity and warmth intact, and an included balaclava hidden in the back neck pocket.
And, of course, it’s half off for men and women.
Moosejaw Mt. Elliott Insulated Waterproof Pant – $104.30 (25% Off)
Looking for the perfect pair for your winter jacket? The Moosejaw Mt. Elliot Pant is ideal. In fact, the two were designed together, protecting you from storms and cold like a full suit of armor. If you have not worn insulated pants before, the Mt. Elliot pants will be a treat. They use 40 g of synthetic insulation throughout, which is more than enough if you have a matching top to keep you cozy in the freezing wilderness.
The shell has the same 2-layer waterproof and breathable membrane with sealed seams, YKK zippers, and moisture wicking mesh from your calf to your knee, cause that’s where you’re going to sweat in these. With internal boot gaiters, zippered back pockets, and impressive construction you will barely feel the cold.
