We're working out what we think - we'll add our view here!
The Halo jacket was our original super-lightweight down jacket; a ground-breaking style that in 2008 heralded the advent of a new category. We recognised the need for an insulating layer that was light enough to stop you overheating when cranking out the watts, but warm enough to prevent overcooling when stopping for a breather. As for the insulating material itself, for crux there was simply no choice: it had to be down. Lighter and less bulky than synthetic fills, not to mention longer-lasting and natural, down gives you real freedom of movement as well as warmth..
We updated the Halo jacket by switching to a water-resistant Pertex Endurance shell, an integral hood design and a slimmer, longer cut. What remains unchanged, however, is the Halo’s market-leading 900 cu.in Polish down fill.
