Why we made this
Our much loved Halo Down Jacket — ideal for outdoor adventures, this jacket features responsibly-sourced down and responsibly-produced bluesign® approved fabrics.
  • Product Description
    The legendary Halo Down Jacket is warm, compact and a great all-rounder — perfect for urban adventure, travel, hiking and camping. Filled with 600 loft Responsible Down Standard (RDS) duck down and featuring elasticated cuffs and an adjustable hem, this jacket works to keep you warm by trapping heat against your body. The lightweight nylon outer fabric (and lining) is bluesign® approved and features a short-chain C6 water repellent finish to protect against moisture. A separate stuff sack is included for convenient storage when packing your bags for the next adventure. The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) is an independent, voluntary global standard in the ethical sourcing of down and feathers — the RDS ensures our down comes from humanely treated ducks and geese and helps to provide traceability in our supply chain. All our down is 100% RDS certified. Similarly, bluesign® certification confirms these specific fabrics have been manufactured with responsible use of resources and the lowest possible impact on people and the environment. Both the outer and lining fabrics are bluesign® certified in the Halo Down Jacket.

Comfortable, warm, not a sauna
This is my first down jacket, bought for a July trip to NZ. It was a very different experience to what I had thought. I usually find jackets and jumpers make me feel overly warm. However I can wear this when the temp is up in the low teens. I can walk and do different activities and it doesn't get clammy.
It is very comfortable. It's well made, zippers, seams have all held up well. I usually get jumpers in XXL, but this is XL and fits well. I wear it over just a base layer. I might wish it a bit longer to cover my butt.
This is one of my favourite bits of winter clothing - I'm sad our winter has been so mild.

Feels almost empty, hope it’s ok.
Nice looking jacket, just got it. Weird long sleeves but I like the fit. It’s a fill power 600 but seems almost empty compared to other 600 jackets in our house. I’m A bit worried about it being warm enough to be honest.

macpac down jacket.
Lovely jacket good in all respects. Size seems to be typical Asian size with sleeves a bit too long for European barrel size. Not a big deal though.

Excellent Jacket. Great value. Extremely warm.
I’ve bought MacPac in the last so really shopped around this time to see if there was another brand worth trying. MacPac have faith in their product and give you all the info. Others only give basic or no info at all. In the end I went another Mac Pac. I purchased the Halo and couldn’t be happier. Great fit ( I love the arm length) awesome quality and unbelievably warm.

Awesome Mens Jacket, so versatile you can pretty much wear it anywhere.
The jacket looks awesome although I ordered the wrong size & it's too big. 5cm across the chest may not seem alot but it is.

Macpac clothing is all excellent quality, good styling and reasonabley priced.
The Macpac jacket is well worth the purchase. Compared with other competitors, people just pay for the name(katmandu etc.). Macpac's Halo jacket is very warm and comfortable and has a good range of colours

It's a tad expensive but definitely worth the price. Worth buying for winter or late nights to keep warm.
Warm, worth the price

What is the difference between this jacket and the Nomad jacket?
Lisa C on Jul 20, 2020

Both the Nomad and Halo have a DWR finish on the outside, helping with water resistance (not waterproof by any means). The fill weight of the Halo is 20g more than the Nomad, meaning it will be slightly warmer than the Nomad.

Thanks, The Macpac Team
Hello, I recently bought this jacket in a size M and it is slightly tight around the shoulder but very loose at my waist when zipped up, and also slightly long at my arms. I am a 16-year-old male, 5'11 (180cm) tall, my chest is 104 cm and my waist is 80cm, I would expect to keep the jacket as I am still growing but would like a second opinion as to whether to exchange for a size S or not. Thank you. ? (had to add question mark to submit)
Naveed Z on Jun 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Naveed, please do pop into your local Macpac store, where the team will be able to help and advise on sizing.
How do I pack this jacket back into the portable carry bag?
Motion82 on May 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Lay out on a flat,fold the arms in towards the zip. Fold either the left or right side, so the jacket is in half. Start rolling from the bottom but keep the roll firm/tight. The main thing is to try to expel the air, from within the jacket
Hello just wondering does this jacket have a hood please ?
Helen A on Nov 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Helen, If you are after the same jacket, but with a hood please checkout the Halo Hooded Jacket:

Thanks the Macpac Team
G'day Macpac team. I've had one of these Halo jackets for about 8 years now and still regard it as one of the best things I've ever bought. However, when the weather suddenly turns warmer I sometimes wish I could zip off the sleeves leaving just the vest. So my question is - Is it possible to make a Halo jacket with removable sleeves? Cheers, Chris.
Chris on Jul 29, 2020

There isn't anything like this coming in the near future, but will pass your feedback onto our design team. In the meantime, have you seen our Halo Vests? Coming in both non-hooded and hooded versions.

Great Question, please view our size guide here perhaps a Large or XL would be a suitable. Alternatively, if you can, pop into your local store and try a few sizes on for the best fit.

What is the true colour of the vetiver. The pictures show it looking green and then more of a beige?
Ky W on Jul 8, 2020

The Vetiver colour is more of a Beige colourway.

Hi I purchased this jacket on the 20 June at DFO Moorabbin and paid $139.99 on special. It is unused with all swing tag. I’m very disappointed to receive an email today noting it is on special for $99.99 - what are you going to do?
Stefano F on Jul 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Stefano,

Please pop into your local store (or the store where you purchased the jacket), and they will be able to assist you with this. Please remember to take your jacket and the proof of purchase receipt.

Hi my tall thin 14 yr old son has a size 12 and it is too small esp in arms I'm looking at one if these for him he is a size 16 in ie Kmart hoodies what size do you suggest he's in XS men's tshirts likes things not too baggy bit but not tight he would like to wear something underneath would he be a XS or S ? I'm wanting him to have at least 2 seasons for this jacket he would love a blue one regards Jane
Jane S on May 2, 2020

Thank you for your inquiry. We'd recommend popping into your local store and getting your son to try on a variety of sizes to find the perfect fit, alternatively you can take measurements and match these against our size guide
Don't be afraid to try a women style as they can sometimes fit young men well also and is available in a dark navy.

Kind Regards,
The Macpac Team!
