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.

MacPac womens Halo jacket with or without hood.
this is my go to jacket for the coldest aussie days. i have hooded in hot pink and have recently bought one without hood in navy. my 22 yo daughter has stolen it from me and wears it daily with our currently very low temperatures. best extra warm jacket in large sizes. certainly perfect weight with or without layering on cold days outside.

I am in 'LOVE' with my new jacket. The jacket is very soft and cosy. I got 2 sizes up and I was very nervous it would not fit but it did! It is oversized just like i wanted!!!!!!! I highly recommend this product as it is affordable and a must have. Very happy with my purchase.

Love this jacket!
Really happy with my jacket, it arrived really quickly. I was a little concerned when it come in such a compact bag. But was so happy once I had put it on, cosy, light weight and warm. One of the only jackets that has enough length for my long arms! Would definitely buy another in the future.

Macpac Halo Women’s Jacket
I love my Halo, it’s like wearing an extremely light, fluffy cloud. Very warm & completely keeps the wind out. Only need a thin layer underneath. Could be improved with rib cuffs, the Velcro is pulling threads on the outer layer which is disappointing with my brand new coat. That is the reason for not 5 stars. Also the inner pocket is too deep. Things in the outer and inner pocket clash together. Would have been nice to have a gap for earphones on inside pocket. Delivery was super fast. It looks very smart with feminine shaping and love the longer back. Beautiful to wear.

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 = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsS_L-WkqGw&t=73s

Thanks the Macpac Team
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. https://www.macpac.com.au/sizechart-womens-clothing.html

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!
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.

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.

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.

Is it warm enough for under 10 C degrees?
A P on Jan 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello A P - on it's own no, but if you have suitable layering of thermal base, mid and top layers you could use this. Please be aware this jacket offers no water resistance / water proof or wind proof. You might want to consider the Ember is those are conditions you might be facing.

Thanks the Macpac Team
Just wondering if I should go up in a size as I’m rather large in the bust area ?
Mandi on Jul 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Amanada, The Halo jackets typically run larger than our other jackets, if you are going somewhere cold and wish to layer then a bigger size might be the way to go. However whichever size you are normally in tshirts or jackets should be fine. At any of our stores, our team are more than happy to exchange or refund products if they aren't the correct size. Thanks the Macpac Team
