Additional 10% off at Macpac.com.au


Just wanted to point out that you can get an additional 10% off at Macpac using the code "explore" - I believe it is store wide.

HALO DOWN JACKET or direct link $99.99 —> $90 + shipping

HALO HOODED DOWN JACKET $159.99 -> $143.99 - thanks Kacak

Additionally could someone combine this post with the previous macpac post?


Hope someone finds this useful.

    Hi, you might want to update the price for the Halo hooded one - it's actually $159.99 -> $143.99

  • Great find, thanks for that

        Unfortunately, there are many ITNG haters on OzBargain… :(

    If you're buying the Halo Down Jacket, I suggest:

    1. Add Halo Down Jacket to cart.
    2. Find $10+ worth of items then apply the code
      (e.g. http://www.macpac.com.au/outdoors-travel-accessories/travel-... and
    3. Apply code and checkout.

    You'll basically be getting the $10+ worth of items for a really cheap price.
    (My example, 2 locks for $2).

      why down vote him?
      some suckers want to pay $10 shipping <$90

      Australia under $100 $10.00 shipping
      Australia Over $100 FREE shipping

    • For lazy people like myself…

      MRS wants one of the jackets so whats the best buy for $10.01?

  • How does it compares to Kathmandu or North face ?
    Never tried this brand

    • I prefer North Face, but they are overpriced in Aus

      I don't mind Kathmandu if you get things at a really good price, but I would look at Macpac first.

    • It's on par with Kathmandu these days, quality has dropped over the years, but still some decent stuff (particularly backpacks)

    • I've had a Genesis 70L backpack for almost 6 years, used over 300+ days on the road in South America/Europe/Asia and not a tear or rip. Quality is great.

    Darn it. Just got the hooded one a couple of days ago and wearing it the first time today. :(

    • +2

      Get another one with discount, then return the new one with the old receipt. the JB trick.

  • +2

    Does anyone get the price down to $94.13 but then on the checkout page it jumps back to $99 before applying the code?

    • Same here

    How do these jackets compare to Uniqlo down jackets?

    • way better quality imo

    • +4

      I love Uniqlo but their down jackets aren't well made. I've had two, after returning the first one and they both leak so much down! Everytime I wear it I'm covered in feathers.

      I just popped down to the Macpac store and the quality is markedly better than Uniqlos - it's much warmer with more features. Just bought one!

      • Thanks for your input sinishta and poppingtags

  • Any of their sleeping mats any good?

  • i advise anyone buying the down jackets to try on before you buy..these run a little big depending on your body shape

    • In the description they try to make it clearer.
      There is slim fit for the skinny amongst us.
      There is regular fit for those of us with a gut or who wish to layer underneath.
      I have to size up one or two sizes for the slim fitting which I tend to steer away from.
      I buy a lot of Macpac gear over the years and like both the products and the service
      Hope this helps

    In case anyone else is in the same position as me…

    I ordered yesterday without the EXPLORE code so I rang Macpac directly to see if I could cancel the order. They asked me for the reason and I told them that I would want the 10% off so I would re-order which would end up a better deal for me. The lady on the phone said she would apply the 10% off for me and have the balance refunded to my card directly.

    Great customer service there!!!

    • +1

      probably because they can now slug on $10 for shipping lol lose lose

      • not if you bought 2! :)

    • Can confirm the same, just phoned up and explained I wanted to cancel my order, their immediate response was why and then explained about the discount code. Instant refund to my credit card. Excellent service I must say.

      • Tried the same thing for 5 jackets I bought , but they told me I had to bring them back in store :( Must have been my operator??
        Not a drama I've just reordered them with the extra 10% off. Thanks OP !

    I thought about getting one of these for my wife so as there is a Macpac store nearby (… which is next to a Kathmandu store and also Mountain Designs store) I decided to take a look before just ordering online. I have had several Macpac products over the years but I was disappointed with this jacket. At $90.00 perhaps it's okay but if you're looking at the original price of $270 and thinking this is a $270 jacket think again. It seems Macpac are following the Kathmandu syndrome - double the price of everything and then have ongoing sales with 50% off.

    • +1

      Its a classic marketing tactic. if they can seel the jacket for $90 think about what their cost is and then to sell it for $270. 700% mark up. I feel sorry for those that actually pay for this stuff full price

  • Don't know if I should get another or get a hooded one, or take it back for the discount now lol

  • +1

    Brought the blue hooded one. Now we wait…

  • +1

    seems like coupon code not working when i try to add some accessory to make it go over $100 to get free shipping; and when i checkout it adds shipping $10 again! :/

  • Got this coupon applied in Bourke Street shop today. Thanks op, saved me an extra $50 overall

    • Did you just ask them to apply it?

      • +1

        Yep, I did a similar thing to happyhappyland below. Showed them the cart price on my phone and they were happy to match it. Converse to the Sydney staff, the Melbourne crew were great.

    • +1

      I went to Macpac in Birkenhead sydney and they wouldnt give me the 10%. Even after showing them the price I could get on my phone. The staff there was quite rude so I just left and bought it online.

      I would suggest going in store to try. Im usually a Men's Small to Medium but XS was my size for the hooded one.

      • +1

        I went to Birkenhead Sydney this afternoon and they applied the 10% off for me, no problems. YMMV.

  • I just picked one up from Bourke st. The really small sizes (/xtra small) are all but gone. The guy wasn't too keen on giving me the additional 10% (he said it's online only etc) but I said to him that several people in the office (aka some random person on ozbargain ;)) were given the discount at the same store. He somewhat reluctantly applied the discount. Thanks OP!
