Can I be sure that my softshell jacket is warm enough for my winter hikes?
Your jacket’s inside is brushed – a tried and tested method for retaining heat. The principle is simple: the component weave is structured to add volume to trap air, naturally insulating. Exactly the same principle applies to the fur or feathers that keep animals warm. With a bit more, this jacket has sleeves at the bottom of the sleeve limiting the entry of cold air.
Thermal comfort and Windproof
The wind considerably increases the feeling of being 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.
Slim cut: Fits very close to the body and elastane-based material components for comfortable use.
Water repellency of the component
The water-repellency of a fabric is its ability to let the water slide 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 correctly in the winter, no matter what your activity is, we recommend that you apply the 3 layer principle: layer 1: The technical base layer will enable damp to be wicked away to keep skin dry. layer 2: The second layer (fleece, pullover) provides warmth and wicks away the damp. layer 3: The jacket protects you from outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind. The outfit must be breathable to wick away damp.
How does my product warranty work?
This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.
What is the environmental impact of the products and how can I compare them?
The product's environmental footprint is calculated over its entire lifespan using various indicators. A score is assigned, from A to E, to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other. Decathlon is committed to this approach. Find all our sustainable initiatives at http://developpement-durable.decathlon.com/
Store in a dry place without exposure to light. We advise you to avoid using chemicals such as bleach, which could cause deterioration in the garment’s thermal insulation.
We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: - a test of the material of our fleece jackets. - a test on a thermal model in a thermal room. We reproduce conditions of the temperature, the wind (5km/h) and the humidity that you experience in the mountains when walking at 5km/h. These tests enable us to validate our design choices and thus adapt thermal insulation where you need it most.
Machine wash - 30° max - normal
Do not bleach
Do not tumble dry
Do not iron
Do not dry-clean
All our products are tested in the field on 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.
