Seems like a decent purchase. I have the Uberlight which I'm pretty happy with as a pack-away, would only imagine these would be quite warm, and at that price you can't go wrong!

I'm torn - I picked up the Aldi down puffer at their hiking sale on Sat, but now I am wondering if I should take it back and grab a halo instead. The Aldi one weighs ~540g on my scales at home, so comparable to the Halo. I can't speak to the relative warmth of either, but then I am generally a warm-bodied person, so it's not a deal breaker.

The other option is the Uberlight. If the discount on the Halo and Uberlight was the same, the decision would be easy, but given that they are currently priced the same, it's a tough call.

I picked up one last season form macpac, I think for 89 dollars on sale.
It’s fairly warm though sometimes it smells a bit funky from the cheap quality duck down they use.
