  • 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® certified 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, too.

    The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) is an independent, voluntary global standard in the ethical sourcing of down and feathers. All Macpac down is 100% RDS certified. Similarly, bluesign® certification confirms these fabrics have been manufactured with responsible use of resources.

I prefer the colours of the men’s jackets. (I’m a female) Will the men’s jacket fit me?
Zoe C on Nov 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Zoe, absolutely and some women prefer this. Just keep in mind the mens is a much straighter cut, and not tapered as much as the womens. ie you might find it a bit baggy on the sides. But more to do with body shape and fit preference. Remember if you do get it, and it doesn't fit right - we offer a 60 day returns and exhanges policy - more details here:

Alison H on Apr 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I’ve work it in light rain and it was pretty good at keeping me warm, but I don’t think it’s advertised as being water-resistant specifically.
Hi. I am after a warmer down jacket. Which one do you recommend between the Halo and Mercury? I can’t work out the differences. Thanks

Macpac Men's Mercury Hooded Down Jacket

The Halo would be slightly warmer than the Mercury. Even though the Mercury has a slightly higher fill power, the Halo has more fill weight, making it slightly warmer.

How do you get the wrinkles out?
Nick F on Aug 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Nick - Chris is onto it. Below is our standard reply.

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

Which one is warmer, Halo down jacket or Icefall down jacket?
Rey G on Jul 3, 2021

Due to the extra amount of down inside the Halo Hooded jacket, this would make it warmer than the Icefall. But you wouldn't want to use the Halo Hooded jacket in the same way as the Icefall.
The Icefall is designed to be used as a layer underneath a rain jacket and to be used while hiking or being active.

I usually wear a S for Halo hooded.. what size should I get for the Uber light hooded?
Huey N on May 18, 2021

The Halo range fit slightly bigger, so depending on the layers you would like to wear underneath, we would recommend a size up.

Craig B on May 17, 2021

This is the ratio of down to feathers.
80% down to 20% feathers.

Hi, I would like to buy the men's Halo hooded down jacket. I read somwhere there will be more colours arriving in October. Are other colours available? More specifiacaly the green-grey combo one as seen on the photo.
Paul A on Oct 19, 2020

There looks to be more colour becoming available next month, but the green-grey combo will not be one of them, as this is a clearance colour.

The Macpac Team
Hi I am looking for another colour in this jacket so can I have any other options?
Hiral S on Sep 4, 2020

We have another colour option that is currently in our clearance section, otherwise we have new colours coming available in the next month or so.

Macpac Men's Halo Hooded Down Jacket
Macpac Men's Halo Hooded Down Jacket
Macpac Men's Mercury Hooded Down Jacket
Macpac Men's Mercury Hooded Down Jacket
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michael,

The Mercury isnt as warm as the Halo Hooded, with the fill weight of 136 g for a Medium compared to 219 g in the Halo Hooded. This also means the weight of the Mercury in a Medium is 390 g and the Halo Hooded is 590 g.
The Mercury is a more slim fitted jacket and not as bulky.
