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 and lining fabrics are bluesign® certified, with a short-chain C6 water repellent finish on the outer to protect the down from moisture. A separate stuff sack is included for convenient storage when packing your bags for the next adventure.

Hi what is the difference between the sundowner hyper fry jacket and the halo?
Alayna H on May 25, 2021

The main difference is the amount of down in the Sundowner, compared to the Halo.
Sundowner has fill weight of 192g for a size 10 whereas the Halo has fill weight of 160g for a size 10.

The down on of the Sundowner has also been treated, so is more water repellent, helping kept the jacket warm if it gets slightly damp.

If my chest measurements are within range of a certain size, would I need to size up if I wanted to wear the jacket over top of a jumper?
Paige W on Jun 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Paige,

It depends on how close your measurements are to the next larger size. Imagine you're wearing a jumper and if your measurements are in between those listed in the size chart, we recommend picking the next larger size.

Kind regards,

Hi I have a pink one I bought a few year ago I'm normally size 10 in every thing if I purchased a size 12 for more room and give will it it too big? as it says extended size?
Zephry on Mar 14, 2021

We believe the extended sizes refers to that fact that these jackets go up to a size 20.
As the Halo jacket is already on the larger of fits, the size 10 should be fine for room.

I got my jacket and it’s really flat. Does it get “puffy” on its own? or?
mele1505 on Jun 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Mele, good question! Please do give it a few weeks to puff / loft up. It is likely this jacket has been in it's compression sack from factory for a few months - so will get better with time.

Thanks , the Macpac Team
Would the Southerly and Halo be the same size-wise?
Jennifer D on Jun 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for your enquiry.

I can advise that the Halo style is a little bit longer and a bit more of a boxier fit than the Southerly.

I have a Fairydown Puffer that MacPac sold a few years ago. How does the sizing compare to these ones?
Hayley on Apr 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Hayley, very hard to say depending on model. But if the models are similar then the sizing is very likely to be the same. One thing we would recommend is don't upsize on the Halo - this is generous sizing to allow for a few layers underneath.

Thanks the Macpac Team

I have a big chest and find the 20 tight. If I go to men’s, what would be the size up?
Sandra H on Apr 3, 2020

We're sorry to hear you're struggling to get the perfect fit. If you want to look at / purchase from the men sizes, we'd recommend you take measurements against the mens sizing chart, you can find that here

A lot of reviews comment on loss of feathers. Why does this happen on some jackets? Can the jacket be returned if it’s ‘leaky’?
Kristine H on Feb 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Kristine, thank you for your question. You will find all down jackets will leak a small amount of down from new. This is feathers (which are very fine) coming out from the stitching. This will settle down with use, and should be much better after 4 weeks or so. If the feather is coming from the material itself, it's important to try and work the feather back into the jacket, as pulling it out will leave a small hole in the material. Of course if you are unsatisfied after this, you are more than welcome to return the jacket for assessment, and a full replacement or refund will be offered if considered faulty. Thanks the Macpac Team
Hi , extremely happy with the jacket , but haven’t washed it yet .can you please advise about the Wash care . Can I do a machine wash?

Priyanka on Aug 2, 2019

Warm hand wash in non-detergent pure soap or Nikwax Down Wash®
Handle with care when wet
Rinse well by gently kneading the down
Do not bleach
Do not use fabric softener
Dry flat in shade initially, then tumble dry on low heat several times to separate the clumps of down
Do not dryclean
