Why we made this
Technical down for hiking in cold, damp conditions — the Sundowner features 600 loft HyperDRY™ water-resistant RDS duck down within a finely woven Pertex® Quantum outer shell.
  • Product Description
    A technical down jacket for hiking, the Sundowner features 600 loft HyperDRY™ water-resistant RDS duck down within a finely woven Pertex® Quantum outer shell. Certified by the Responsible Down Standard (RDS), HyperDRY™ is a fluorocarbon-free water-resistant down that's been treated with a natural wax-based compound to encourage moisture to bead and roll off the down cluster. As a light and soft fabric with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish and bluesign® certification, Pertex® Quantum allows the down to fully loft for maximum insulation in cold, damp climates. Internal fleece cuffs, zipped hand pockets and an adjustable hem add the finishing touches to this performance focused down jacket — all helping to keep the warmth in and the cold out.

Great product
I have had my Sundowner for 2 years now. I've used it once. It is too warm for regular Tassie city weather! I am packing my Sundowner for a week out on Tassie's Central Plateau next week, where I KNOW I will finally get to use it properly!

Good
Had the jacket a fair while now and mostly it's been a good buy. It's very warm, very comfy, has good pockets and fits well. The only little niggles are that the stuff-sac it comes with has fallen to bits and some of the stitching around the velcro on the wrists has come lose.

Pretty Sweet
I've had the jacket just over a year now, managed to get a small hole in it while around a fire due to a rogue ember - easily patched with a little duct tape. The down around the elbows has clumped to the outside half, but that's no biggy. Doesn't take long to warm up once you're on the move with this thing, in fact I find myself getting too hot after long!

Well made compromise jacket
I had waited for ages to get one of these jackets. Tried lots: finally decided on this one (in store Adelaide) as I don't go to the Oz snow. Much better design than the Kat.brand and seems warmer than their goose sale jkt.
My hand pockets did not come with Microtherm lining as described? but I like the hem adjusters in the pockets.

Comfy, warm and packs down small
Have been using this jacket for a while now as my hut/tent/camp jacket and has been great. The 'microtherm' inside the collar and cuffs makes the jacket feel really comfy when you put it on, hem adjusters in the pockets are great, and keeps out most of the wind. It packs down in the supplied stuff sack to make it an easy luxury to take in your pack or panniers without taking up too much room (which means you also have a comfy pillow at night too).

Good all round performance
I bought this for warmth (as you do) and it definately ticks that box. In fact I dont wear it as much as I thought I would cause its so warm! I got a vest versionas well as a result which suited my needs better. Overall comfortable and very warm!

WARM JACKET THAT CAN GO ANYWHERE
I love this jacket! I literally use it for everything. From a slightly chilly day around the city (with only a single layer underneath) to a full day at the snow, this jacket has kept me warm and dry. Thanks

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
