Product feature
  1. WATERPROOFING
    - Membraned 2-layer fabric - A strong rain corresponds to a flow of 100L/m2/h - (= rainfall of 100mm/h) - The rainfall simulator reproduces these conditions for 3 hours. - Component resistant to water pressure of 5000mm after ageing = 5000 Schmerber - average pressure of water during a downpour - Water repellent components allows water to runs off the fabric. - 100% taped seams. - Central opening features a flap with a drainage channel for optimal waterproofing
  2. BREATHABILITY
    RET <12: very breathable. To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance, or RET, (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). It is its ability to allow the water vapour produced by the body during exercise to escape.
  3. COMFORT
    Three-way adjustable hood. Adjustable jacket hem.
  4. Reflective patches
    2 shoulder patches 2 hood patches to intensify light sources.
  5. RESISTANCE TO WEAR
    Injected plastic central zip resistant to salt oxidation.
  6. HOW TO REACTIVATE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 1: before washing
    Close all zips and flaps and remove any parts of the garment that cannot be washed. Also remember to loosen the straps and elastic parts and empty the pockets. Then turn the garment inside out to wash it.
  7. HOW TO REACTIVATE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 2: washing
    You can wash your jacket on a synthetic cycle at 30° or 40°C with your usual detergent. Do not use fabric conditioner, which could damage the existing performance of the garment, or bleach. Also take care not to bend your jacket too much when you place it in the washing machine and do not overload your machine. Very important: select a thorough rinse or double rinse to completely remove all detergent residue.
  8. HOW TO REACTIVATE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 3: drying
    Drying is a crucial phase in reactivating the water repellent treatment. We recommend that you lay your jacket flat on a clothes rack and leave it out to dry in the open. Caution: never dry your jacket directly on a radiator. Then place it in the tumble dryer on a short synthetics cycle, i.e. 10 to 15 minutes, before turning it back the right way round.
  9. HOW TO REACTIVATE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY
    If, despite this procedure of washing and thorough rinsing followed by gentle drying in a tumble dryer, the drops of water no longer run off the surface of your jacket, we recommend that you "re-waterproof" it using a spray sold in our stores.
  10. Score to compare the environmental impact of products
    The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme. For more information, visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
  11. Water repellent component:
    The water repellency of your Offshoroa anorak is obtained by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment causes water to slide over the surface without soaking in. This prevents the component from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, breathable, and warm. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime. Water repellent treatment products are available in our stores.
  12. How important is windproofing?
    Protection from the wind is very important, as wind can chill the body significantly whether you are active or at rest. According to the "wind chill" model, which measures how the air temperature feels when factoring in the wind and cold: at a temperature of 5°C combined with winds of 30 km/h, the temperature felt will be 0°C. If the air temperature is 0°C and wind speed is 40 km/h, the temperature felt will be -7°C. Your Offshoroa anorak counters the wind chill effect.
  13. What is a waterproof and breathable HYDROPHILIC membrane?
    The membrane works in stages to wick away perspiration. Firstly, the fabric absorbs water vapour until it is saturated. Then, due to the difference in pressure between inside and outside the jacket, the fabric disperses the water vapour outwards. The main advantage of the hydrophilic membrane is that it does not contain pores; consequently, there is no need to constantly rinse the fabric to wash off any salt water crystals. Breathability therefore remains constant over time.

  1. Composition
    Main fabric : 100.0% Polyamide (PA) Main lining : 100.0% Polyamide (PA) Secondary lining : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Wrist : 88.0% Polyester (PES), 12.0% Elastane
  2. Storage advice
    Store in a dry place, but do not leave your garment on a heat source such as a radiator, as this may damage the breathable membrane or coating.
  3. Cleaning advice
    Machine wash your Offshoroa waterproof anorak at 30°C. Inside-out with hook and loop strips stuck together. Choose a long rinse and gentle spin cycle. Line dry if possible. Occasional tumble drying on low for a short period of time will improve the water
