I recently picked up one of these bad boys and does exactly what I need. I sized up so I can throw it on over my jacket while switching out the skins and getting ready for the down hills. Even with the extra room inside it's still the warmest 1lb down I have ever worn thanks to the weight mostly coming from mountain hardware's 850 down, the shell is extremely light weight and the unnecessary bells and whistles are absent on this no nonsense mountaineer approved down. If you thinking about getting one DO IT! I'm 6' and about 180 and the large is roomy enough to throw on over a jacket but a medium would fit better over just a base layer.
I first purchased the 2012 kelvinator jacket, did love it, but then i found the Phantom for a ridiculous price (180$). Honestly, both jacket are very nice, but if you can afford the phantom or find it on sale, dont hesistate to get it ! Its very lightweight, warm and compressible. Its alot more warm than the Ghost whisperer too as it have alot more fill weight. If your looking for an awesome down jacket at a reasonable price, get the phantom jacket.
