    Product feature
    1. Waterproofness
      Waterproofness is a fabric's ability to prevent rain water from passing through. A fabric's waterproofing is determined by measuring its resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Material with a waterproof rating of 2000 mm resists the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (which roughly corresponds to a 2-hour rain shower).
    2. Breathability
      To determine whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance (test based on standard ISO 11092). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric will let water vapour produced by the body escape, and therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric.
    3. Visibility while cycling
      This garment is VIOO Clip ready. VIOO Clip is a LED light that can be clipped and unclipped anywhere in a single step. Red or white lights are available and can be used in continuous or flashing mode. The VIOO Clip effectively signals your position from up to 120 meters away. Battery life (9 hours in flashing mode, 4½ hours in continuous mode). Easy to charge using a USB cable (sold with the VIOO Clip).
    4. Product tests
      Our team of product designers is based at the B'Twin Village in Lille (France). All year round, we conceive and develop new products that are easy to use, look great, and have the technical features needed for your cycling experiences. They are then mercilessly put to the test by users in the field, as we are convinced that only by subjecting our products to real world conditions, such as the ones you will experience on your bike, can we continuously improve them.
    5. Care tips
      Machine wash at 30°C. Synthetic programme. Turn the garment inside out. Use minimal laundry detergent. Do not add softener. Line dry in a warm, ventilated area. Do not tumble dry.Do not dry clean. Do not bleach. Do not place on a heater to dry.
    6. A rating to compare products' environmental impact.
      A product's environmental impact is calculated for its entire life cycle using various indicators. Products are then given an ABCDE rating to help you easily identify products having the best environmental performance (lowest impact) by comparing different products of the same type (T-shirts, bottoms, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon voluntarily chooses to display the environmental ratings of its products.

    • Great jacket, unbeatable price

      Used for More than 1 year
      My last one lasted for well over a year of constant use in the wind and rain of Scotland, just replacing it cause its starting to look a little tired. Replacing it with another one of these (now orange, a change from yellow) its still doing a great job. Packs down small so is always in my bag.
    • Very impressed.

      Used this jacket daily for the last six weeks. It's survived one London downpour and kept me perfectly dry, and otherwise been very comfortable. I'd imagine it will be too sweaty to use other than in winter, but the vents certainly help. I'm usually feeling a slightly clammy by the end of my five mile commute, even when just wearing a t-shirt underneath on all but the coldest day.

      It's a well-designed piece of kit with handy pockets, a generous drop at the back and a good seal on the cuffs. Overall fit is good. Recommended - for the price you just can't go wrong.

      (Interesting that the specification claims the 'fabric has breathable coating' while comments from Decathlon under one review here state that the jacket isn't breathable [ it definitely isn't, and I didn't expect it to be for the price]. )
