Closeouts. A fully windproof, zero-weight marvel, Mountain Hardwear's Ghost Whisperer anorak jacket is so crazy lightweight that you can pack it down into your pocket -- not your hand pocket, either, but that teeny little coin pocket on your jeans.

My wife has the women's version of this jacket, and after searching for similar jackets in other brands, I ended up ordering this jacket for me. No other brand has a 2-ounce (56 grams) windbreaker. This jacket folds up small and stores in the back pocket of my jersey, making it suitable for long rides where every ounce of weight can add up! It's a very light weight jacket made of a semi-transparent white, rip-stop material that feels flimsy, but is high in quality with strong seams. Perfect for cutting the wind, but does not provide any warmth. I wear a Men's M and the Medium fits well, but the sleeves are about an inch too short. The light weight makes up for that.

A great intermediate or outer layer. This wind jacket did a fantastic job of keeping me warm on a blustery alpine snowshoe up above 9000' with just a long sleeve poly tee underneath. Previous to this jacket, I'd constantly have to layer/unlayer to regulate my temperature in such a high-output exercise. It is so light and packs so small that I'd be a fool to leave it behind. It seems durable enough with reasonable caution.
