  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.

    Three-way adjustable hood. Adjustable jacket hem.
  4. REFLECTIVE
    2 shoulder patches 2 hood patches to intensify light sources.
  5. RESISTANCE TO WEAR

  6. HOW TO REACTIVE 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 REACTIVE 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 REACTIVE 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 REACTIVE 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.

  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.

  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

  • Excellent sailing jacket.

    An excellent sailing jacket for a fraction of the cost of the more established brands. It stood up to 3 hours of heavy rain on a recent trip in the Solent without any leaks or discomfort. Recommended.
  • Really nice, I wear it everywhere now.

    Bought this back in July as in impulse buy while in store to get body-boards on way to Anglesey with the boys, and I knew it would be rainy. I've been getting most of my kids' waterproofs from Decathlon's sailing section and been really impressed every time.
    Tried size 'M' and was really impressed at the fit - nicely snug/athletic fit, good arm length, hood perfect size. The shape is spot-on and well tailored. Material is very high quality and I really like the red/dark orange hood with big reflective panels. The colour combination of grey/dark grey/red is lovely, it's really grown on me and feels really natural when out hiking. I've chucked my old MTB jacket and now take this on wet bike rides - easily as good as something twice the price. It has proper chunky zips none of that fine-toothed rubbish. Velcro fasteners on sleeves are just the right amount, as per storm flap. Only mistake is not reversing the velcro on the RHS sleeve so that it doesn't keep sticking to the RHS breast/waist opening. Really good pockets all round. Huge fleece lined collar means this is a propery cold weather waterproof, but still OK in summer if you're just wearing a t-shirt.
  • Good value sailing jacket

    As far as value for money goes you will not get much better than this.
    My only complaint and this is being picky is that some of the velcro get caught up on its self when not fully fastened.
    Outside of this it is every bit as good if not better than some of the very expensive major brands I have had.
    Sorry I did not buy one earlier! I could have saved a fortune!
