The original Halo jacket was launched in 2008 as a super-lightweight down jacket when the category didn’t exist. Crux recognised a need for an insulating layer that was light enough to stop you overheating when cranking out the watts, but was warm enough to prevent overcooling when stopping for a breather.
For winter 2015/16, Crux have updated the Halo jacket by switching to a water-resistant Pertex Endurance shell. The hood is now integral. They have also refined the overall fit, making the halo slightly longer and slightly more snug. The down quality remains a market-leading 900 fill-power sourced entirely from Poland.
