I got mine in the mail last week and used it this weekend for 4 days (2 of which it rained). I must say, this jacket did surprisingly well considering it's so thin and light. I also thought it would be easily damaged, but at first glance, it seems to be fairly durable. For just a few oz of weight, it seems to be my choice for an ultralight wind/waterproof layer.

I'm planning on using this basically during the time that I'll be outside commuting to and from the office. I've needed something small enough to provide me an outer layer but compress down to fit into a messenger bag when not needed. Would this fit that use pretty well?

I take it you mean cycle commuting? It won't be perfect but it will be pretty good. the only downside to this kind of jacket is that the fabric is so light that it flaps mightily when you hit speed. Otherwise it is perfect for cycling as it has no membrane to hold in sweat.

Well, the first reply is from a fellow Coloradan, who tested this out and gave it an A+ for all but severe weather conditions: http://www.mountainhardwear.com/mens-ghost-lite-jacket-1572411.html?dwvar_1572411_variationColor=814#q=ghost+lite&start=0
I guess you could douse it in water proofing, but it seems to have it fairly well on it's own.

Just got mine and used it for the cooler morning bike ride to work. 1st impression is wow, this thing is thin! But, it does what was expected - block some wind and keep me a little warmer on my ride and be feather light and compact in my messenger bag. I like it. The orange also helps me be more visible to others on the road as well. One thing, be careful if wearing a watch with this jacket. I only wear a small Samsung Gear Fit2 and it snagged a little on the inside sleeve when taking it off (I think the rubber strap grabbed the jacket material). Gave me a scare, but the fabric of the jacket did not rip. Very happy with it overall.

It hasn't rained lately here in Denver, so I can't attest to it's water resistance, but it's been my go-to cooler morning jacket on my bike commute lately. Glad you mentioned the hood, which at this point would be my only "con" against the Ghost Lite. The hood sometimes catches air on my ride like a parachute - partially blocking my rear and peripheral vision (not good in city traffic). This happens when it is windy or at higher speeds. I still love how this jacket fits and feels and what it does (block wind) while being compact when stowed, but after this fall season my Ghost Lite will be used mostly for hiking and running. Plus, I don't think that this was intended as a cycling style jacket or a rain jacket, but a piece of kit you could use on a bike, a jog or hiking when a quick outer layer is needed.

Thanks for the info. I always hated how the hood of my jacket would catch wind on my motorcycle. I was hoping it would be a non-issue on a bike, but I think I'll find a hoodless jacket instead. Thanks again for the help!

This are extremely deceptive images. This is not a down puffer jacket. Why did they purposely put creases/folds periodically to make it look like it is stuffed? Disgusting marketing practice. Look at the branded pictures, these are flat paper thin rain shells, except they aren't water proof.

Sorry that you don't like the pictures. I see your point about the pictures looking wavy, like an insulated jacket. My guess is that's how the photographer set up the photo shoot so the jacket doesn't look like a wrinkled up garbage bag. The first line of our description is that this is a 3 ounce wind shell, so it's hard to mistake that for a puffy down jacket or a rain shell.

I bought it, I like it, it IS wind and water resistant. Good for hiking and biking. Price is right. Happy. It is a little noisy but not as bad as some of the material used on bags of chips. Good deal.

I love that Blurple color in women's. Wish the men's had some other color options.
