What size is equivalent to a woman’s US 14? I ordered this jacket last week and received a  size 18xxl. It’s way to big and I’m returning it but annoyed I had to pay for return postage. The women’s updated size guide doesn’t come up on the website.

Asked by: Zeppo
A US 14 is about equivalent to a NZ/AU 18. Apologies for the sizing chart not being available, the web team have now fixed this glitch. Please feel free to contact Customer Services if you would like exact measurements of a size.

How do I wash this jacket?

Asked by: im1920
1. Machine-wash your down jacket on a gentle cycle at 30 degrees °C. 2. Carefully remove your down jacket and lay flat to dry on a clothing rack. 3. Put it in the tumble drier on a low heat. 4. Throw in two to three tennis balls, or Granger’s drying balls. 5. Gently fluff up the down jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I bought my Heli Down Jacket during the cooler months and absolutely love it. It's so warm, light weight and stylish. I wish I'd bought extras in different colours ready for next winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Im loving the updated sizing which is slightly bigger. I am a 12 but in order to fit a top I had to go to a 14, which was too big in hips and sleeves. This jacket is perfect in 12 and still comfortable with a top under. Feels very light but perfect for spring and autumn . Have to wait for winter to see how it goes but have other heavy coats. Pleased
