Verified Buyer Reviewed by alambert from Alaska on Friday, October 17, 2014This jacket is very warm and comfortable. It is extremely light weight. I wore it when it was 33 degrees and raining out and it kept me warm and dry. I am looking forward to testing it out as the temps drop further but so far it is my favorite jacket I've ever owned.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by RunDebRUn from Utah on Friday, October 3, 2014I purchased this jacket for travel and hiking because it is small and light. The jacket meets both of those criteria. The weather has been warm ever since so I have not yet had a chance to really wear it. The fit is good. I wear a size 6 to 8 (5'6" 130 lbs) and purchased a medium so that I could layer under it. Fit is perfect. You can cinch in the bottom for a more form fitting look. A previous reviewer thought the logo was too obvious - I think it blends in OK (I hate being a walking advertisement).
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Carolinagirl from Chapel Hill, NC on Tuesday, September 23, 2014I like how thin this jacket is. It is probably quite warm considering it's lightness. It also has more of a feminine cut - not boxy like some other brands. However, I didn't like the hibiscus color. It's quite bright and a little too orangey for me. Also, it is shiny which I could tell in the photos but I thought I wouldn't care once I put it on. Well, I did. Overall a little too flashy for me. But perfect for someone else who likes a little flamboyance with her outdoor gear :)
Reviewed by Reinerrider from Arizona on Tuesday, September 16, 2014I tried the Nilas, and the Ghost Whisperer, and yikes I kept them both. This jacket certainly won't have the warmth support as the Nilas due to the fill power and baffling construction. The Ghost Whisperer is a favorite among climbers. It is warm and comfortable, but not for extreme cold. To keep it light, the fabric is a bit delicate as are many jackets in this category. That's why many companies sell matching patching tape. It is well made. It is fitted, but as a down jacket they are puffy...nature of down. I tried both a M and L. The M fit, but was a bit snug around the rear and busty (34DD), so I went with a large. When you click on the SML, they translate into numbered sized, and those numbers are true to size. This jacket layers beautifully under my rain jacket, so it wins as a solo or a down layer. On sale, you can't beat it. Both the Nilas and the Ghost Whisper pack down to stuff sacks. With the weight and space being a issue since I have to deal with luggage space/weight, they both win to help me meet the requirements and stay warm.
Answer If you click on the overview and specs for each you can compare the two with ease. The Ghost Whisperer jacket is 850 fill power while the Nitrous is 800. Mountain Hardwear developed Ghost Whisperer fabric in collaboration with speed alpinist Ueli Steck, and there is only one mill in the world that is equipped to weave it. The Ghost Whisperer also has a UPF 30+ rating and is packable into it's own pocket.
Answer I would say that the nitrous is a lightweight down jacket while the ghost whisperer is an ULTRA-light jacket that makes for a great layering piece; but, if you need more details you should contact the M.H. site or call them.
