Weighs only 620 g in size 10 years.
What makes a jacket waterproof?
The resistance of a fabric to water seepage. This is measured using an approved water pressure test. Bearing in mind that the average pressure of rain water varies between 1000 mm and 2000 mm, a fabric is considered to be waterproof from 2000 mm. Our products resist pressure from 2000 to 10 000 mm. They are therefore very waterproof and suited to even the most extreme weather conditions.
What do you mean by sealed seams or waterproof strips?
Its seams are sealed (or taped) using heat-sealed, waterproof strips. They are placed behind the seams and are essential for waterproofing clothing so that water cannot enter through capillary action (water being absorbed by the threads and holes of the fabric).
Fleece component: Insulation provided by air
The fleece component is designed to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. The brushed knit fabric is what traps the air.
Coating applied to the inner fabric makes it waterproof and windproof. A waterproof fabric has the technical characteristics needed to be certified windproof. It is very important to protect yourself from the wind, when active and when resting, as it drastically cools down the body.
1/ Machine wash (30°C): close rip tabs, gentle wash. Wash jackets and trousers inside out. Loosen the straps and elasticated parts. 2/ Do not fold the garment too much in the machine: may wear out more quickly. 3/ Do not mix clothing types and colours. 4/ Do not use bleach. 5/ Choose a full rinse and gentle spin cycle.
Either: line or tumble dry (low temperature, short cycle). Caution: Don't leave NOVADRY® garments on a heat source such as a radiator, as this may damage the breathable membrane or coating.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is given to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same types of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental impact. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

Ensure that this protective, waterproof garment is perfectly dry before storing it in a dry place, preferably on a hanger to prevent creases from damaging the fabric.
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are attractive, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
