The Halo down Jacket has an exceptional warmth to weight ratio due to using the highest quality down which is protected by a down proof water resistant outer.
We have been making the Women’s Halo jacket since 2010 and it is our best-selling women’s product. The Women’s Halo has 10% proportionately more down than the men’s equivalent.
The Women’s Halo jacket has a water-resistant shell and an integral hood. We have refined the overall fit by making it longer in the body and also slightly more snug. The down quality remains our market-leading 900 (EU) fill-power sourced entirely from Poland and guaranteed to be 100% ethically recovered. It has two hand warmer pockets and an internal pocket that also doubles as a stuff-sack (complete with belt loop).
The down used in the Crux's Women's Halo Down Jacket has a impressively high fill power. This gives an unbeatable warmth to weight ratio and with a respectable 135g of down in the jacket it really is very warm. The jacket has a stitch through baffle construction with 2 handwarmer pockets and a decent sized inside chest pocket (which doubles a stuff sac).
The hood is close fitting and elasticated though without any adjustment to save weight. Similarly the cuffs are elasticated to help keep the cold out. The Pertex Endurance shell provides weather resistance and means the down will remain in the jacket keeping you toasty.
