  • Product Description
    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.

Great jacket
Use it for bushwalking, Sth West Tasmania last summer just before lockdown. Great jacket, warm, packs down small, use it in your sleeping bag for extra warmth. Haven't worn it for its intended active use, but works for me! Rob

Thumbs up
Great warmth for the weight and packing size, really like the idea of non down fill in the areas that get damp. Nice high neck and good sized hood that isn't too bulky n restrictive. I've got an uber light weight jacket also which is way cheaper, bit lighter n smaller but this is definitely warmer n more solid feeling jacket if want to go.next level.

Are there plans to improve this jacket yet further by having a double main zip?
Graham B on Aug 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Graham,

Thank you for your enquiry.

At this stage, there are currently no plans in place to add a 2-way zip to this item.

Thanks - the Macpac Team
I am looking at getting a warmer jacket at some stage. I currently have a Pisa Polartec ,which is my main insulation when tramping, and a Mercury down jacket, which I use as a 'hut jacket'.(Although both also get worn a lot in civilisation. And I unfortunately I spent a lot more time in civilisation than I do in the wilderness.)

But I wouldn't mind getting something warmer for when it's really cold (primarily for hit use, but also for layering when really cold - and for really cold days in civilisation as well), and I am particularly interested in learning more about the Icefall and the Sundowner.

I see the Icefall is much lighter. But it also has a better fill power and what appears to be better insulating material.

So here are my questions:

1/ Which is warmer - the Icefall or the Sundowner?

2/ Am I correct in assuming they both have similar water resistance?

3/ Am I correct in assuming the Icefall packs down much smaller? If it does, how does it pack down compared with (say) my Mercury?

4/ How much warmer are they than my Pisa Polartec and Mercury?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Darryl,

Thank you for your enquiry.

1/ The Icefall has 95g compared to 255g of down the Sundowner (in a medium size for example) however the Sundowner has larger baffles so will be warmer overall. However the Sundowner is much heavier (750g vs 370g) and doesn't pack away as small.

2/ Both fabrics have a C6 DWR coating on them & hyper dry down

3/ The Icefall Jacket is our Alpine Series and packs the smallest into the left Pocket. It packs down to quite a flat and square shape. The second smallest is the Mercury, which you already have and know that it packs a tubular shape. The biggest to pack away is the Sundowner, which like your Mercury, stuffs into a stuff sack to form a tubular shape.

4/ For weight, warmth and packability, the Icefall is best and the most technical out of the three. Overall, the Sundowner is warmest with the Mercury being a great middle man.

Thanks - the Macpac Team
Which is better for hiking? This or the uber light?
Sophie G on Dec 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The icefall would be way warmer then the Uber. Both weigh about the same but the fill power (loft) of the icefall is much better. Additionally the icefall is goose down and the down has had a water repellent treatment. The Uber is really just an urban jacket, whereas the icefall is a more technical piece of clothing. So the icefall is a hands down win on features. However, it’s about 3x the price, so it budget is an issue then you’d have to consider that.
What maximum size water bottle will fit in the internal pocket?
Sailorboy on Jun 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I've just put a 750ml bottle in the pocket and it fitted easily. I probably wouldn't go much bigger though...as it could be a bit tight. Also, if the bottle is full it'd be heavy and could weigh down one side of the jacket. It's quite a thin jacket...but one of the best macpac jackets I've owned and I would recommend it.
