Product feature
  1. Fleece component: Insulate with air
    The fleece component keeps the air inside thanks to the volume created by its texture; this air keeps the body warm with its natural insulating properties. It is the abrasive nature of the knit that helps keep the air in.
  2. Component test:
    Abrasion and friction resistance test: for example, we check that fleeces do not pill using tests conducted in the laboratory. Colour retention test: colour fastness is verified to make sure the colours cannot bleed. Ageing test: repeated washing must not affect the properties of the fabric, its behaviour, thickness or appearance.
  3. A score to compare the products' environmental impact
    The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall rating of ABCDE is provided to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other (t-shirts, trousers and backpacks). Decathlon is a voluntary actor in this environmental labelling process. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

  • Outstanding for the pice

    Used for 7 to 12 months
    Close fitting, thick and very warm. The ventilation zips make it a very versatile jacket (though I'd love to see some on the arms too) . As soon as I purchased mine, I treated it with Nikwax "Polar Proof" and combined with my pertex windproof, I now have a warm and breathable waterproof coat system - been out in the rain for hours with my combo and it works a treat!
  • Very snug and warm

    Used for More than 2 years
    I have had this for quite some time now and bought it in version that had orange zips and was at a slightly lower price. Arguably the newer versions are more discrete and the blue certainly looks nice.
    This is a very warm fleece but I do find myself wondering when best to use it. As I like it I look for reasons but sometimes find that for practical purposes that other jackets get chosen last minute as more applicable.
    So what's wrong? Well if you are heading out and it looks like rain or is windy then this is not ideal. It is very warm and quite snugly cut but because the fleece is luxuriously thick I would struggle to comfortably fit it under a tailored waterproof or windproof jacket. I also then think why not just wear my £25 Quechua insulated waterproof or £35 Quechua down jacket instead? I wore it last year for a fireworks display but was chilled by the wind blowing off the river we were stood by.
    So, in essence this excels at dry, not too windy, cold weather.
    In those conditions is does feel lovely and is shaped well though be aware it is snugly cut limiting what you might reasonably layer up underneath. The cuffs on my version at least are open so going up a size would probably let even more cold in that way. The zipped arm vents are something I used to dismiss on jackets but they can help here when excess heat builds up. The zipped hand pockets are good and I don't mind the long diagonal front zip, which is presumably designed for maps. Not sure actually if this fleece is aimed at winter hikers or not but I personally think it is maybe a bit too bulky for that unless you aren't moving far. The hood is good and well insulated. Overall this a jacket that I will keep and enjoy, especially when I work out its best uses for me. It is perhaps not the best example of a piece to layer and so therefore not the most versatile but the comfort, snug factor cannot be ignore. I've given it 4 stars which I think is fair as other, lesser makes would charge more for this I feel. My advice though would be to try a variety of Decathlon warm jackets to see which one meets your particular needs. I tend to find the Decathlon sports uses (this is a hiking jacket etc.) largely something I don't pay too much heed of as like most good clothing from good makes it can be put to a variety of (mis)uses. For me I am going to give layering it under a wind jacket another go and also treat it as first choice for any still, cold days.
  • SH500 Warm Winter Sweater

    Aidy (United Kingdom)
    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    I received my red sweater on my birthday this year, February 12th 2018 and have worn it nearly every day since. In a wind and cold free environment it is fantastic but windproof it certainly isn't. At this present time 02.03.18, it is minus 6 outside and the world outside is completely white. I wind tested this jacket by sticking my arm out of the car window at 60 miles an hour in mid February and I have to tell you, it is not wind or cold proof at all.
    Part of the advertising of this jacket is that it was tested in the foothills of Mont Blanc. All I can say to that is must have been a warm spring or autumn day when they tested it because if you don't wear something windproof over or under it, the wind goes straight through it.
    This all my sound negative but this jacket is far from that. The day it arrived, it had just snowed and I had just been out in a lightweight down jacket. It was cold, blizzarding snow and non too pleasant outside. From the very moment I put this jacket on it warmed me up like a hot log fire in a mountain chalet and now, 3 weeks in, I have worn it every day with the exception of two separate days when I washed it. The Danish have a word that is something like 'Hooglii' and it means 'Cosy'. This jumper/jacket is Hooglii and this I promise you, you will not regret buying it. My wife paid £29.99 for the red/burgandy one and if I am honest, I would have paid double that if that's what it was. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because its not windproof. For something that is advertised as 'something tested near Mt. Blanc', I personally would have expected more windproofing. But then you can't have everything for this price. Nice one Quechua, keep up the good work.

  • Great in every respect, but the arms are too short

    Charlie (United Kingdom)
    Used for 1 week or less
    This fleece has a great cut, plenty of pockets, technical features such as pit zips and would also be great to throw on in the evening when out camping in colder temperatures. It's great value at full price and I got mine for a bargain at £15.99 in a sale online. Unfortunately the sleeves were at least an inch if not two too short for the size so I had to return it.
