Product feature
  1. What type of padding is used to give my jacket warmth?
    Recognised for their high thermal insulation, down and feather also provide an excellent weight/warmth/compression ratio. However, remember that the warmth provided comes from the combination of the weighting of down/feathers and the filling power of the jacket. Together, they provide you with warmth and insulate you from the cold. (Padding 50% down and 50% feathers in the body, recycled wadding 100 g/m² at the bottom of jacket and arms, 60 g/m² on the collar).
  2. Which components are added to the padding give it warmth?
    As well as its filling, your jacket's waterproof zips, snow skirt, collar and adjustable hood and cuffs offer better protection against the cold for a warmer feeling.
  3. What is a membrane and what's it for?
    The membrane is an extremely thin component applied to the inner surface of the jacket’s outer fabric. This hydrophilic component prevents water from seeping in while wicking away the perspiration produced by the body. The membrane is essential when it comes to staying warm and dry.
  4. How is the water resistance of a jacket measured?
    The resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A fabric with a waterproof rating of 8000mm is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 8000mm column of water.
  5. Which parts of the jacket protect me from bad weather?
    The 500 jacket was rigorously developed and assembled to stop water getting in and to prevent wind chill, so you can brave the bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.). To check its water-resistance, this jacket was placed under a special shower, to reproduce the conditions faced by a skier. We have checked the waterproofness of this product in use in various weather conditions over several days.
  6. Why is water-repellency needed for my jacket?
    The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This jacket features water-repellent components that extend its weather resistance. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface. However, this property may deteriorate with use.
  7. How to restore your jacket's water-repellent properties?
    Remember that water-repellency can be restored. To do this, you can use a waterproofing spray (sold in our stores): spray the product evenly over the entire garment, then allow to dry for 10 to 12 hours).
  8. What is a "breathable" jacket?
    This garment wicks away the water vapour produced by your body when exercising. To see if a fabric is breathable, its resistance to evaporative heat (RET) is measured in a standardised ISO 11092 test. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. The 500 jacket has a RET of 11. However, it’s the technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh) that Wedze uses, which reduce the condensation inside the garment and maximise breathability.
  9. What is the cut of the 500 jacket?
    Regular Fit. The jacket has sides that fall straight and remain parallel without trying to follow the shape of your chest. The inner volume lets you wear this jacket with a first and second technical layer.
  10. How to dress to stay warm on the slopes?
    To keep warm and dry, just apply the 3 technical layers rule: - Layer 1 or second skin, to stay dry. - Layer 2 or an insulating layer, to keep in the heat. - Layer 3 or a protective layer, to protect against bad weather.
  11. In case of a fall, how can I stop the snow getting inside?
    The snow skirt (which is automatic), as well as the adjustable cuffs, prevent the entry of snow and draughts during practice and especially in case of a fall.
  12. How to wash my jacket?
    * Wash the jacket inside-out * Machine wash at 30°, delicate programme with little detergent and without fabric softener. * Put 2 clean, ideally white, tennis balls in the drum of the washing machine. * Perform a second or third rinse cycle to make sure that any washing product that remains from the previous wash has been eliminated.
  13. How do I dry my jacket?
    Dry in a tumble dryer (strongly recommended) * Use a gentle or delicate programme. * Be sure to select a gentle spin cycle. * Dry on several long cycles to dry completely. * Between 2 cycles, shake the down to break up the clumps of feathers which form during washing. If you do not have a tumble dryer, the process is longer. (drying can take 1 to 2 weeks on a dry and flat place). Make sure you pat the jacket to avoid feather balls (at least 4-5 times).
  14. Where do the feathers come from?
    Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers in accordance with our commitment to use responsible materials. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are raised for their meat and plucked after slaughter. http://developpement-durable.decathlon.com/faq/
  15. A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
    The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and using various indicators. An overall ABCDE score is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type (t-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
