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 over-cooling 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. The Halo jacket is a versatile garment, with enough down to suit a wide range of conditions and activities, and consequently our most popular style.
The Halo jacket has a water-resistant shell, an integral hood and a slim, long cut. It is filled with 135g (size medium) of 900 fillpower Polish down (EU norm).

Down is a very resilient insulating material and, with basic care, any down jacket should last you a very long time.
There are two simple rules to ensure longevity:
1. Always store your jacket uncompressed in a dry, airy place
2. Try to keep it as clean as possible to minimize washing (this ultimately damages the down).
We highly recommend you hand-wash your down garment or, alternatively, use a professional service. You can download washing instructions here.
