Sizing and fit information
Fitted cut for great ease of movement and minimum area exposed to the wind. The jacket's inner volume allows you to wear it over a thin second layer such as a micro-fleece.
Attached hood. Automatic height and depth adjustment using an elastic system.
A side pocket fastened with Velcro that also acts as a storage pocket (your windbreaker can be folded into this pocket to occupy minimum space).
Adjustable jacket bottom

Comfortably warm 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.
To find out if a fabric is breathable, its evaporative resistance RET (test based on ISO 11092) is measured. The lower the resistance, the more the fabric releases the water vapor generated by the active body, and the more it is breathable. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 920 = little or no breathability.
Water-repellent component (different to being waterproof)
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. The water repellency is obtained by a treatment applied on the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
A rating to compare the products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. A rating from A to E is attributed so that you can easily identify the products with better environmental performance compared to products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks). Decathlon totally backs the environmental labelling approach. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
Product concept & technology
Always make sure that this waterproof protective clothing is completely dry before storing it.
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 beautiful, simple and technologically advanced. We then test them mercilessly in real-life situations because we are convinced that only this type of testing can make us progress continuously.
