Macpac Icefall HyperDRY™ Hooded Jacket - Women's
Why we made this
Designed for weight-conscious climbers, this down jacket is engineered for an exceptional warmth-to-weight ratio and improved moisture management.
Designed for weight-conscious climbers, this innovative down jacket is engineered for an exceptional warmth-to-weight ratio and improved moisture management. The ultralight Pertex® Quantum outer shell with a DWR fabric finish is soft and light, allowing insulation to fully loft within. For the insulation, two types have been combined: water-resistant HyperDRY™ RDS goose down and PrimaLoft® Gold synthetic insulation with Cross-Core Technology™. HyperDRY™ goose down is through the body, arms and hood of the jacket, and then in moisture prone areas (chin, shoulder and cuff panels), PrimaLoft® Gold synthetic insulation with Cross-Core Technology™ has been used to maximise thermal efficiency when climbing in snowy, damp conditions. Cross-Core Technology™ features silica aerogel, a highly porous, low-density structure that forms a temperature barrier, effectively providing the same warmth at less weight. Fusing this technology with premium Primaloft® Gold synthetic insulation and then pairing it with technical, water-resistant HyperDRY™ RDS goose down, we’ve created a high performance insulation piece that achieves a previously unattainable level of lightweight warmth.

Light weight and warm
Yes. Love the bright happy colour. So light and so warm. More expensive than other jackets with Macpac but worth the extra without a doubt.

Light and very warm
I wore this for a very very cold trek to the Himalayas. It kept me warm at night in -15 degrees This jacket takes only a few minutes to trap body heat and then lets you soak in its warmth for as long as you wear it. On lighter days, you can wear it over a light top and on colder days it can be the top coat over many layers. Versatile. Perfect for travellers.

is it true to size?
BEST ANSWER: I am tallish and thin. I needed long arms, so the medium was good. But I do feel that the rest of the jacket was a little large. Overall, I love the jacket, light, warm,and I feel that i got it at a good price.
Does anyone know the back length of this jacket...or approx where does a women’s size medium come down to.tia?
