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.

I just received my jacket yesterday. Should I wash it before wearing it?
Bilby on Jul 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Tracy,

There should be no need to wash from new. BUT - when it comes time to wash, please watch this handy video we made recently on how to wash a down jacket =

I'm wanting to buy either the halo or the equivalent to but with hood for my little lady. As the kids sizes only go to a size 12 I'm considering the woman's jacket instead ( so she gets the wear out of it) ! so originally i was thinking a size 8 but after reading reviews im not sure, is it a true fit with room for growth?? she currently fits in a womans 6 in jumpers. Thanks in advance 😊
Krystal😊 on Jul 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hey Krystal,

This is a great question. Please view our sizing guide for the best guidance, if your daughter is falling between sizes 6 and 8 we always recommend going the larger size.

Alternatively, if you can, please pop into your local store and try the product on for the best fit.
Thanks, The Macpac Team!
I wear a 14 thinking of getting 12 would this fit ok ?
Ann A on Jun 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I wear a 12 on top, got a 12 and the fit is perfect.
Is the sizing good ?? Can you for a jumper under comfortably
Rebecca T on Apr 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yea it’s not “fitted” so there is room for a jumper. The bust area is the only tight area for me in a 12 but a 14 is too big. A jumper fits easily under the 12 still, it doesn’t make it any harder to do up!
Hello, I have bought the halo down jacket_women online.
It's very wrinkled
How to get the wrinkles out of it and make it puffy??
P K on Aug 20, 2020

If you put your jacket on a coat hanger and hang it up, the down should loft up and the wrinkles will slowly go away. Wearing your jacket will also help as your body heat will help with the wrinkles too.

I just recieved my parcel from the post and the jacket is extremely wrinkly and flat which looked nothing like it comapred to the images from the website. Is there any way I can fix this?
Joshua N on Aug 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Joshua,

Most of our down jackets do arrive in stuff sacks that compress the garment. We recommend wearing the jacket for a time or hang it somewhere so the down can loft out and fluff up, this will help reduce or even remove the creases and give the down room to expand.
Stuff sacks are a benefit as you can compress your jacket to reduce space while traveling and then pull it out and allow it to fluff back up to its normal size. As you have previously mentioned, storing all down product away in loose storage bags for the sleeping bag and a coat hanger for the jackets is recommended, this allows breathability and avoidable damage to the down. Compress bags and stuff sacks are purely for transport use only and not for long periods of time.

Thanks the Macpac Team
Is the down ethically produced ?
Diane C on Jul 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Macpac uses Responsible Duck Standard (RDS) in their jackets and hence they are RDS certified. RDS is a global standard in the ethical sourcing of down and feathers. You can find out more about RDS by googling 'RDS certification' which takes you to their website that goes into detail about how an RDS certification is obtained.
Does the colour "black iris" have a blue tinge to it?
Michelle W on Jun 7, 2019

Which is warmer the UBER light or Halo puffer jacket?
Melanie C on Jul 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Melanie,

Due to the fill weight of the Halo being greater than the Uber Jacket, this makes the Halo a warmer jacket.

Thanks, The Macpac Team
Where is it made?
Anne C on Jul 8, 2020

This is designed in New Zealand and made in China.

Does anyone else find feathers leaking with this jacket?
Abby R on Jul 7, 2020

When down garments are manufactured there will be down that has been trapped in the seam and this can be common for down-filled garments to "leak" from the seams, particularly during the initial period that you start wearing the jacket - this should reduce significantly once excess feathers have been expelled, and the down has been given time to settle.

Thanks, The Macpac Team
I am a size 8 and wondering if I should buy an 8 or 10. Some of the reviews suggest it runs large?
Tracey C on May 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Agree with it runs a little large. I would not go for 8. I am 10 and is a little lose for me and 8 is a bit tight; I prefer loose so I stick to 10.
Does this jacket have any shape to it?
Sharon C on Apr 13, 2020

What is the sizing like, I'm a 16/18 depending?
Gabe F on Jun 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I found this jacket runs a little big. I am 8/10 depending, and purchased the 10 thinking I may need layers underneath. The jacket is still roomy when I am wearing a base layer.
what size is the model wearing?
Steffff on Jun 3, 2019
How can I straighten the wrinkles of my new jacket? I took it out of the pack and it looks likes wrinkled paper...thank you
Ettie A on Apr 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It takes about 24 hours for the wrinkles to come out and the jacket gets puffy. You can either hang it up or leave flat, don’t think it matters and give it time. Wearing it can also help

Does this jacket have a hood?
Freespirit713 on Oct 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jeanette,

No, the jacket does not have a hood. We sell a Halo Hooded jacket though.

The Macpac Team
hi does the halo without hood come in a size 20?
Loral T on Aug 29, 2020

The Halo does come in a size 20, but not available to purchase online due to stock levels. Please contact your closest store to see if they have the size 20 available.

The Macpac Team
Will you be getting the size 20 back in stock?
Nicole H on Aug 24, 2020

We dont look to be re-stocking this colour in the near future.

Is this the warmest jacket you got ?
Amenka L on Aug 20, 2020

Even though the Halo Jacket is a warm jacket, it is not the warmest one we do. Something like the Ember Jacket or Arrowsmith would be one of our warmest.

The Macpac Team
hi, is Macpac Halo Down Jacket — Women's size 14 in vintage violet? It shows that it is in stock
,but when i checkout it says thats not available.
Sandra P on Aug 18, 2020

Some of our Click n Collect stores have this available but they aren't able to ship directly to customers. This is why it is showing up on the website still.

The Macpac Team
What would you recommend between the halo and jupiter for everyday wear for women?
Wanderer on Aug 6, 2020

The Halo Jacket is slightly warmer, but not by a lot, so this would come down to the preference of style between the two.

The Macpac Team
Does the vintage violet run dark or light? The photos on the website are slightly confusing, I would like a dark purple jacket...
Katie on Jul 12, 2020

The Vintage Violet is quite a dark colour, you can view it by googling 'Pantone Colour Chart Vintage Violet' for a true idea of the size/

Kind Regards,
The Macpac Team!

Paris on Jul 7, 2020
