    Thumbhole at the cuffs to prevent heat loss and improve comfort on the move.
  6. Thermal comfort and wind-proofing
    Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold! With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 kmph 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.
  7. Water-repellent component (different from being waterproof)
    A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric is made water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes).

  8. Environmental measurements
    The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing and contrasting products of the same type (tee-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating initiative. For more info: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    very useful jacket in the Spring and Summer. I bought the size 08 and found the sleeves rather long. Otherwise fitted very well.
