    Product feature
    1. Sizing information
      Quite a close-fitting cut. The jacket's inner volume allows you to wear it over a thin second layer such as a micro-fleece.
    2. Hood
      Deep cut that covers you completely.
    3. Pockets
      2 hand pockets + 1 chest pocket with zip fastening.
    4. Jacket hem drawcord
      Elastic draw-cords and toggles.
    5. Product features
      Thumb loops on cuffs to prevent any heat loss and provide more comfort when moving around.
    6. Thermal comfort and windproof
      Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold. With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°C. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
    7. Water repellent properties of the component (not to be confused with waterproofing)
      A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm. This is achieved through a treatment applied to the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (after every wash). Products for this are available in our stores. All Quechua Softshells enjoy the benefits of water repellent treatment.
    8. A score for comparing products' environmental impact
      The product's environemental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environemental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental information. For more information visit http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

    • Brilliant jacket for activity

      I really like this jacket. I tend to wear it when warming up for running and/or standing around before a race. It is nicely wind resistant and surprisingly water repellant too, but I would not say that it is a warm jacket - you still need to be doing activity to stay warm in this really (if wearing in chilly weather...!). I like the fact that it is stretchy. I am tempted to wear it rock climbing but I like it too much to risk ruining it on the rocks!
      Stretchy, water repellant
    • Great jacket for price

      Great jacket for price to cut the chill on breezy summer days. Shrugs off light showers too. Light but not flimsy. Only caveat would be to double check the sizing, I'm usually on the smaller side of medium but the jacket is a close fit, not a problem in this case as I bought it for cycling
      Wind proof, very light and packable
      None
    • Superb.

      Love it. Hardly a day when I don't look forward to pulling it on.
      Lightweight, comfortable.
