Macpac Halo Hooded Down Jacket (Mens) for $129

210

Not the cheapest, but not bad. Waiting for the non hooded version for myself though.

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. A durable nylon shell protects against general wear and tear, while the internal draft tube and soft chin guard aids insulation and overall comfort. A separate stuff sack is included for convenient storage when not in use.

    We bought the non hooded one for my man back in July and Melbourne weather has been trending cold since then. Normally that would’ve triggered a heart wave, but it was a wise purchase for a good product.

    What’s the size like? I’m 180cm, 80kg. Should I go for M? Or L?

      Based on reviews and trying them on myself, a size down from your normal is best

      I don't think anyone who is only 180cm and 80kg ever considered themselves large.

        Large compared to average I guess

          Sorry, can’t hear you from up here, pip squeak

      Im similar and went with the L as i wanted it a bit oversize. M fits good

      Recommend getting it in store if you can. I'm 180/76KG and wear a Halo jacket in XS!

    Spent about two hours today looking around for a replacement down jacket like this. After 5 years my Kathmandu one is torn up badly, was impressed when I walked theough Macpac earlier so even more impressed now with this price…I didn't note though, can anyone report on how long they are?

    Ladies is the same price too

    Im travelling overseas through europe (UK, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, France)at the end of the year and was wondering if this is a suitable option for a jacket you could wear anywhere?

      Good for all of them except France. What a shame!

      it'll keep you warm but it won't keep you dry. Nowhere to store baguettes unfortunately.
      Some parts of Europe get really cold so I wouldn't rely on this as your only jacket, maybe get something like this and an outershell jacket for additional insulation and waterproofing

      Sure can. But I'd suggest a proper rain coat / spray jacket (waterproof) shell to go over the top. as an essential These puffers have a DWR finish but don't cope well in a modest downpour. Once the down / fathers get wet then it is all over and they take a long time to dry out. I have had this https://www.kathmandu.com.au/mens/jackets-and-vests/mens-dow... Kathmandu jacket for many years and the outer shell acts as the waterproof layer to protect the inner puffer. Works like a treat as you can then mix and match or combine (they have attachments to make them not slip slide and they work well together). That is my preferred style and we trudge through northern EU each year over Xmas / New Year (think Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, Germany etc). Then layer it with a light weight thermal under shirt, a normal T or dress shirt and a fleece. You'll be toasty in any condition (that combo has done us fine for -17 Deg C out in the wilds). Layering is the key.

        What if my father stays dry at home?

    I just bought one. I think this is worth it because I have heard this keeps you warm.

      People wear them for reasons other than looking the part!?

        It gives the travel writers something to bitch about when they see people wandering around in these jackets in "fashionable cities".

    Reviews are pretty good on these and the price seems about the cheapest it has been. Gunna get one for my 14yo son, all reports say to get a size down than normal. He is a normal size height kid, pretty lean, so i would imagine an Extra Small would be the way to go? Dont want to buy it and in 6 months time find out it is too small!

    Has the price gone up? I c 299 and 179 (member price)
