Product feature
  1. Sizing and fit information
    Quite a close-fitting cut. The jacket's inner volume allows you to wear it over a thin second layer such as a micro-fleece.
  2. Pockets
    2 hand pockets + 1 chest pocket with zip fastening.
  3. Jacket hem drawcord
    Elastic drawcords and toggles.
  4. The product +
    Thumb-hole at the end of the sleeve to avoid all heat loss and for greater comfort when moving.
  5. Thermal comfort 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.
  6. 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. A fabric becomes water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every 3 washes).
  7. Water repellent component (different from waterproof)
    A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from becoming saturated, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. The fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes).
  8. A score for comparing products' environmental impact
    The product's environemental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environemental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental information. For more information visit

  • Inaccurate description

    Jake Tomos (United Kingdom)

    Although this jacket is good quality, it does not have all the features from this page.
    I was disappointed to find there is no drawcord on the hem as advertised and no adjustable sleeves. This means that it will be no good for trad climbing or long mountain days as the wind easily gets in as the waist is loose.
    Response of the brand
    Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 600 jacket and I apologise for the delayed response. I also apologise for the miscommunication and have removed the false information form the product page. Should you still own the jacket and remain dissatisfied, please drop back into the store and we shall find a suitable solution for you.

  • Brilliant jacket for activity

    I really like this jacket. I tend to wear it when warming up for running and/or standing around before a race. It is nicely wind resistant and surprisingly water repellant too, but I would not say that it is a warm jacket - you still need to be doing activity to stay warm in this really (if wearing in chilly weather...!). I like the fact that it is stretchy. I am tempted to wear it rock climbing but I like it too much to risk ruining it on the rocks!
    Stretchy, water repellant
  • Great jacket for price

    Great jacket for price to cut the chill on breezy summer days. Shrugs off light showers too. Light but not flimsy. Only caveat would be to double check the sizing, I'm usually on the smaller side of medium but the jacket is a close fit, not a problem in this case as I bought it for cycling
    Wind proof, very light and packable
  • Superb.

    Love it. Hardly a day when I don't look forward to pulling it on.
    Lightweight, comfortable.
