Yeah, it is an OzBargain classic
I found the halo not warm enough for Melbourne winter. Had to upgrade to their mid tier/ top tier range. Would recommend at the very least the sundowner…
FWIW, as a counterpoint, for me, Halo is perfectly fine for Melbourne winter. If anything, I find it overkill!
I wore mine in the dead of winter in Chicago, in like -15 to -20 degree weather (with like -25 to -30 degree wind chill factor!) - I was layering like an onion though! :)
But totally, YMMV depending on tolerance for the cold, how you are wearing it, and how long you are spending in the cold, so fair call! :)
Both my GF and I found the Halo excellent this winter in Melbourne.
I found it enough even on one extremely windy and cold day sightseeing on the Great Ocean Road and I only had a T-Shirt under it.
I’m very surprised you didn’t find it sufficient.
OP, is there a variant without the hoodie? I looked but could not find it. Any pointers?
I think these are the closest variants without hoods.
The alassian is a slightly better quality finish IMHO
The marmot minimalist jacket is also on sale for $149 and is a great deal also
And the Precip Eco jacket.
I have this. I haven't worn it outside yet as I only got it recently but it looks as good as I expected a puffer jacket to look on me. I like the styling vs other puffer jackets.
I don't understand the mention of featherless - this isn't a down jacket right? It's odd to market it as what it isn't.
I think these are synthetic down. Hence featherless.
