Maybe we’re thinking a little too far ahead in these smokey dog days of summer, but we’re already longing for those lovely fall hikes crisp enough to require a little more insulation. The Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer won our hearts over long ago and this year it won a Gold Award and an Editors’ Choice 2021 award this year. It’s a great standalone shoulder-season insulator and a midlayer in colder conditions. Bonus it weighs less than 9 ounces and packs away into its own pocket, and its 10-denier ripstop nylon is stronger than it feels (and drizzle-resistant). Normally $300, score the women’s version for up to 40 percent off making it as low as $180 and the men’s version for 35 percent off making it as low as $195 at backcountry.com.
