Why we made this
Our favourite down jacket, the hooded Halo is a great insulation layer for outdoor adventures — featuring responsibly-sourced down and responsibly-produced bluesign® approved fabrics.
  • Product Description
    The legendary Halo down jacket — now with a hood. The hooded Halo is an excellent all-rounder, perfect for wearing while you're out exploring the city, travelling the world or camping in the wilderness. Filled with 600 loft Responsible Down Standard (RDS) duck down and featuring elasticated cuffs and an adjustable hood and 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 Hooded Down Jacket.

So warm
I received this jacket a few days ago and have been wearing it every day so far. The quality and feel of the jacket is fantastic. I previously owned a Kathmandu 550 Down jacket. So far, there are lots of differences.
- There's only one inside pocket, whereas the Kathmandu jacket has two big inside pockets. Not a huge deal, and the inside pocket on the Macpac jacket is still really large.
- The front pockets are lined with super soft fleecy material which keeps your hands so warm.
- It is incredibly warm yet really lightweight.
- The shape of the jacket is well designed. It dips at the back to cover your bum but is straight cut at the front. It is a surprisingly long jacket and the sleeves are quite long. However, this is a good thing because when you wear a jumper underneath it wont bunch up or be restrictive.
- The sizing of the jacket is generous. I'm usually a size 8 in tops, but decided to go with a size 10 because I wanted to make sure I'd be able to wear it with layers when travelling to cold climates in the future. It fits well, and is generous in size without looking too big.

So far this jacket has been exactly what I need. I would highly recommend it if you're tossing up which down jacket is good for you. Overall, the design, weight and quality are fantastic. To top it off, it's way cheaper than a lot of other down jackets. Thanks Macpac.

Love this jacket, i got the size 12, fits perfectly. I really like the length.
The one thing I'd say is that the sleeves are quite long, but I just fold them up so I'd still recommend it!
August 20, 2020
Great buy!! Value for money!!
My daughter normally fit in size 16 in children side. I got her a size 8(to give her more room to grow).
She loves it!!! Light and cosy!!

Love this jacket
I bought the Aurora, but wanted a lighter and shorter jacket for walking and exercising in Canberra winters. This jacket is amazing! Super warm, lightweight and stylish (I love that it’s a bit longer at the back). My only negative is that the sleeves are quite long but otherwise it’s perfect. I’m about to buy a Halo vest and will probably get the Halo without the hood next winter!

Sizing is great and can fit a jumper underneath as well. Very warm and keeps the wind away. Only thing is I have had my jacket for just over a week and the feathers are already occasionally coming out.

Response from Macpac
Hello Laura, thanks for the review online. Re feathers coming out, we do expect this a little bit in the first month or so. These will be the small feathers that got stuck in the stitching, but should get better with time.

Thanks the Macpac Team

Hi .. I m actually size 8 .. but sometimes size 6 fits well .. so want just want to know if they are true to size ???
Meetu on Jun 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I am usually a size 6 and bought the size 6 in this and it fits nicely. It's nice and snug fitting with a couple layers underneath so I think it depends if your planning to have layers underneath go the size 8 but if not the size 6 would fit.
Hi, just received Halo jacket via post. Sleeves appear very flat with little down in them. Just wondering if jacket puffs out after a while? Thanks
Tracey O on Apr 11, 2020

Yes the jacket will puff up , just leave it hanging out of the cupboard overnight, before enjoy wearing it.

Thanks, The Macpac Team!
Is the hood detachable?
Mandy C on Jun 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The hood is not detachable. You would love the jacket because it really keeps you warm even just wear a t shirt inside. Hazel
Is this the warmest jacket for Macpac. I’m after a really warm jacket?
Kathy on Jul 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Kathy,

It is defiantly a warm jacket. With it's total weight of 620 g (size 10) and its fill power of 600 loft HyperDRY™ - it is one of the warmest jackets we have. But if you are looking for the warmest - I would recommend the Macpac Ember HyperDRY™ Down Jacket - Women's - It has a weight of 800 g (size 10) and a fill power of 700 g RDS HyperDRY™ Goose Down.

Kind regards,
Macpac Team
I was just wondering do the feathers come out of this jacket? Because I want to purchase a jacket that isn’t like other stores jackets where the feathers come out through the sewing thing?
Tiana on Jul 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Tiana. I have been wearing my Halo jacket pretty much non-stop for the last 2months, and I think I could honestly say I have not seen one feather coming out of the seams. It’s a great puffer, and I highly recommend getting one :) Donna

Is this jacket warm enough for Melbourne winter season? (5°C to 15°C)
Shayari M on Jun 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely perfect for that. Was personally in the Lake Tekapo area over the weekend (0-6 degrees) and with a good thermal layer and a hoody underneath was toasty and warm!

Thanks the Macpac Team
Halo jacket In rain
How does this jacket react in rainy conditions, as it is not water resistant?
Deb L on May 30, 2020

Thanks for your question.

This jacket will be okay in a light drizzle but we would not recommend using in rain.

Kind Regards,
The Macpac Team
Are there pockets?
Diana W on Jul 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes there's pockets on the inside so 3 pockets all up. 1 zip pocket on the inside and 2 side pockets on the outside.
Is this jacket black? Photo looks like dark navy
Jazzy on Apr 11, 2020

Yes it is black. Or, we also have the colour Blackberry Wine.

Is this Durable Water Repellant? Please advise. Thanks
Tina C on Jul 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Tina, the Halo range does not have a DWR Coating. We would suggest looking at the Icefall Jacket. Thanks the Macpac Team
Is this jacket water resistant?
Steph H on May 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No it's not. You need to wear a rain jacket over it to protect the down filling. Once it gets wet it loses its warming capacity.
Is the Halo down jacket warmer or the Jupiter down jacket warmer?
Jean B. on Aug 13, 2020

The Halo jacket would be slightly warmer than the Jupiter.

Hi, bought a size 20 for my partner, loves the jacket, she is just really tall, how much longer in the body would a 3XL be?
Brendo on Jun 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Brendon,Thank you for your enquiry.The 3XL is around 9 cm longer in length in the front and 10 cm in the back. If the 20 fits well for size, you could even consider the 2XL as these measurements are closer to the 20 (2XL chest is 72; hem is 66; &; size 20 chest is 65.5 & hem is 65.5), but will only be around 6 cm longer in the front and about 8 cm in the back.Thanks - the Macpac Team

Hi, I'm going to Europe in February. Would this jacket be appropriate?
Isabella G on Jan 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Isabella,

Well, it depends on where you are going - it's a warm jacket and would work really well if you go to Scandinavia or the UK - but for Spain it might be a little warm (as you can experience up to 16-20 degrees in Spain around Feb)

Kind regards,
