How can I be sure my softshell jacket is warm enough for hiking in winter?
The inside of your jacket is brushed, a process known to preserve heat. The principle is simple: the component weave is structured to add volume to trap air, naturally insulating. It is exactly the same principle as animal fur or feathers. A little extra - this jacket is equipped with cuffs at the bottom of the sleeves limiting the entry of cold air.
Thermal comfort and Windproof
The wind causes the perceived temperature to decrease considerably. 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.
Adjusted fit: Fitting very close to the body and elastane-based composition for comfort in use.
Water repellency of the component
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable and warm. Water-repellency is obtained by a treatment applied on the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend each wash). Water repellent treatment products are available in our stores.
How to dress properly for snow hiking?
To dress properly in winter, whatever your activity, we recommend using the 3-layer principle: layer 1: The high-tech base layer transfers moisture away from the body to keep your skin dry. layer 2: The second layer (fleece, sweater) provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards. layer 3: The jacket protects you from outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind. The whole outfit must be breathable in order to eliminate moisture.

What is the environmental impact of a product and how can I compare it?
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. A score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type. Decathlon is committed to this approach.

Store in a dry place away from the light. We recommend you avoid chemicals, such as bleach, which could damage the thermal insulation of your clothing.
We perform 2 types of thermal tests: - a test of the material of our fleeces. - a thermal mannequin test in a thermal chamber. Here, we reproduce the conditions of temperature, wind (5km/h) and humidity that you will encounter in the mountains when walking at 5km/h. These tests are used to validate our design choices and adapt the thermal insulation where you need it most.
Machine wash - 30° max - normal
Do not bleach
Do not tumble dry

All our products are tested in the field by representative users, in addition to laboratory trials. By conducting this comprehensive and demanding dual testing process, the technical features and design of our QUECHUA products is being continually improved. Your regular feedback is also taken into account to constantly improve our range.
