  • 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® 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 Hooded Down Jacket.

I see a lot of reviews from Australia, I live in NZ where it gets a lot colder... is it suitable for NZ weather?
Caitlin S on Aug 20, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hi Caitlin,

This all depends on quite a few different factors, as everyone feels the cold differently.
If wanting to use in the lower south, in the snow or if you feel the cold, then you may want to look at a different option like the Sundowner or Equinox.

My puffer was delivered and the down is very compacted. How do I get it to puff out as it should be?
Jasmine R on Jul 14, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jasmine,

We usually find that when you wear it, the warmth from your body will help with this. Also, just hanging it up on a clothes hanger for a day or two can help.

I am after the purple halo hooded jacket, sz 14. Any of the shops in nz have one? 🤞
Wendy P on Jul 5, 2021

There are a handful of stores with this available, but due to stock levels being low, it has been removed from the website.
You could try your local store to see if they have one or to see if they can get one in for you.

Why the down in new jacket keeps coming out on my clothes and where I seat eg carseat???
Kim C on Aug 23, 2019

When down garments are manufactured there will be down that has been trapped in the seam and this can be common for down-filled garments to "leak" from the seams, particularly during the initial period that you start wearing the jacket - this should reduce significantly once excess feathers have been expelled, and the down has been given time to settle. A small amount of down escaping through the fabric or through any seam line is expected and common in any down garment.

Kind regards,
The Macpac Team
So I've just ordered me one, of I can't fit it am I able to send back for another size?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Harley, thank you for your comment. You are more than welcome to exchange the size either in store or by sending back, following the instructions on your returns card - as long as you have the original packaging/ tags, the item is unworn and is returned within 60 days. All the best.
