  • Product Description
    The kids' Atom Hooded Down Jacket is light, versatile and filled with responsibly-sourced 600 loft RDS duck down that's been independently certified by the Responsible Down Standard. Wrapping around this cosy down fill is a lightweight, bluesign® approved, nylon fabric featuring a water repellent (WR C6) finish to help protect against moisture. The elastic-bound hood and cuffs help to trap heat inside the jacket, while an internal mesh pocket allows kids to stuff the jacket away into itself for easy packing — or to create a soft travel pillow when on the go.

Hello is this warm enough for winter in bathurst for 3 days?
Natasha on May 21, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I bought one for my son to wear on an excursion to Canberra for 3 days in July and he didn't complain about being cold. Hopefully that helps.
Hi there. What sizes would you recommend for?:
GIRL aged 10. Height 142cm
BOY aged 8. Height 137cm
GIRL aged 5. Height 110cm.
Jessica T on Apr 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jessica,

I would recommend using the Size guide. It doesn't always come down to height alone.

Kind regards,
The Macpac Team
Hi there. I don’t know what size to buy. My daughter is 4 turning 5. She’s quite short for her age. I’m thinking to buy size 6 but don’t know if it will be swimming on her. Is this jacket true to size?
Miniblkdg on Jan 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does appear to run true to size . My daughter is 91/2 and is tall for her age(normally wears 10-12) . I got a size 12, it is still a bit big , but room to grow . The jacket is quite warm. She lived it during the winter months . Kept her quite comfortable and warm.
Which one is the warmest? Stargazer, Asteroid or Atom

Macpac Asteroid Hooded Down Jacket — Kids'
Macpac Asteroid Hooded Down Jacket — Kids'
BEST ANSWER: I think their all fairly similar. I bought the Asteroid for our son as it has fleece cuffs to stop the cold air getting into the sleeves. He's been warm enough in it at -5ºC with a thermal and thin fleece under it.
How cold is this jacket suitable for?
Katrina C on Oct 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Katrina,

This jacket has a fill power of 650 with a down fill weight of 450g (6YRS) - making this is a warm jacket (approximately 4 out of 5 (scale 1-5)). We cannot give an exact temperature that this will be suitable for. Keeping warm all comes down to your layering system - we recommend a base, middle and outer layer for keeping warm in cold conditions.

December is a cold month in Scandinavia, and depends on where you will be going. In Denmark it rarely gets lower than -7 degrees - when it is really cold. But Norway, Sweden and Finland can get as low as -25 degrees.

If you have any further questions, please contact our customer service team on

Will light rain water run off the jacket?
Mazzz on Jul 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It won’t bead & run off, but the jacket doesn’t get sodden/wet straight away either.... misty rain is fine....
The size guide stops at 12 - does anyone know the measurements for 14?
Libby B on Jun 2, 2021

Sorry that this wasn't showing.
We have now fixed the issue and size 14 will show on the size guide.

The Macpac Team
When will the black Atom kids vest and jacket come in size 14 the vest and jacket in other colours is available in 14 but not in black which is the colour my son wants in both? His 12 is getting too small and the men’s jackets are too big for him so need a kids 14. Thanks
Brooke on Feb 25, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rebecca,

These should be available again soon, as we can see stock has just arrived.
Please give another week or so and check back online.

your sizing guide is hard to understand i am 146 cm in height 79cm in chest 78cm in waist and 90 in hip what size am i ?
george D on Jun 25, 2020

Great question! I'd recommend heading into your local store and trying a few different jackets on - including a men's S or XS and women's size 6 or 8 both available in black.

Thanks, The Macpac Team!
Hi, which is warmer - this jacket or the kids Macpac Pulsar Alpha PrimaLoft Hoody?
Trish on May 23, 2020
The Atom is likely to be marginally warmer, but the Pulsar has the benefit of being easier to care for and providing better performance in wet conditions.
Thanks, The Macpac team.
Hi. My daughter is a very tall and lean 11 year old. I’m wondering if I should buy the kids size 12 or venture into the Adults range. If I do get an Adults jacket, what size would I need 6 or 8? Thanks.
Bridie D on Apr 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Bridie,

Difficult question. I would recommend size 8 as she might grow into it . It will be loose for her though if she is lean. If the fit is not right, you can always do an exchange.

Kind regards,
The Macpac team
Which jacket is warmer - the Pulsa Alpha PrimaLoft OR the Atom Hooded Down Jacket? Is only the PrimaLoft waterproof?
Marita P on Dec 2, 2019
Macpac Kids' Atom Hooded Down Jacket
Macpac Kids' Atom Hooded Down Jacket
Macpac Pulsar Alpha PrimaLoft® Hoody - Kids'
Macpac Pulsar Alpha PrimaLoft® Hoody - Kids'
BEST ANSWER: Hello Marita,

Both jackets are pretty similar in terms of warmth ratio. And both jackets are water resistant. The Pulsar jacket might have an advantage in wet weather as it is made from Primaloft - Synthetic insulation is perfect for keeping warm, because it retains its insulating properties even when wet — unlike traditional down which often clumps when wet.

Kind regards,
The Macpac Team
How is the sizing?
Samantha M on Aug 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Samantha, designed in New Zealand we find the sizing to suit most Kiwis and Aussies. The jacket would assume a couple of layers are being worn underneath - so if just wearing a thin t-shirt you could consider a size smaller. We hope this helps, the Macpac Team
What do you mean by 80/20 duck down fill? What does the 80 and the 20 mean?
