Product feature
  1. Waterproofness
    Waterproofness is a fabric's ability to prevent rain water from passing through. A fabric's waterproofing is determined by measuring its resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Material with a waterproof rating of 2000 mm resists the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (which roughly corresponds to a 2-hour rain shower).
  2. Breathability
    To determine whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance (test based on standard ISO 11092). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric will let water vapour produced by the body escape, and therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric.
  3. Product tests
    Our team of product designers is based at the B'Twin Village in Lille (France). All year round, we conceive and develop new products that are easy to use, look great, and have the technical features needed for your cycling experiences. They are then mercilessly put to the test by users in the field, as we are convinced that only by subjecting our products to real world conditions, such as the ones you will experience on your bike, can we continuously improve them.
  4. Care tips
    Machine wash at 30°C. Synthetic programme. Turn the garment inside out. Use minimal laundry detergent. Do not add softener. Hang to dry in a warm, ventilated place. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean. Do not bleach. Do not place on a heater to dry.
  5. Environmental impact
    A product's environmental impact is calculated for its entire life cycle using various indicators. An overall rating (ABCDE) is given, allowing you to easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks etc.). Decathlon openly displays the environmental ratings of its products. To find out more: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

    Although this item is expensive it is a quality jacket. It is well made with superb zips and is nicely lined. The size is perfect for me also.

    I bought the medium size jacket for my son but it was very tight across shoulders. So ordered the large for click and collect and returned the original. However the large was still too tight across the shoulders and under the arms. Decided not to go for the xl, because my son is only of medium size and the body of jacket would have been too big.
    The jacket itself looked and felt great, it was a disappointment that we had to return it.
    First class service through out the buying and returns procedure.

  • Truly waterproof

    I've had this jacket for about a month and have used it on a LEJOG ride on a drop bar touring bike, during which it was subjected to a full day of heavy rain, driven by a strong headwind. It kept my body and arms dry, which I found amazing. I would have preferred a longer back as my shorts did get damp, but the conditions were so bad I'm not sure how much that would have helped. It only gets 4 stars as I find the front zip pulls in the material of the jacket and snags on almost every operation. Easy to remedy, but annoying nevertheless.
  • good for mountain biking

    This is an excellent quality jacket, feels robust and comfortable. Have had it for about a year and still works well. Breathability is very good, with additional vents under the arms. some condensation builds if you are really pushing it, but the breathabilty is better than some I have paid more for.
    This is good for biking where you sit more upright, but does not work so well if you are using a head down road bike: it does not drop down far enough at the rear , or close enough around the waist to prevent water getting in, so think carefully about what you want from the jacket: communting and moutain biking great, road biking: look elsewhere.
    Also note that this is quite durable, but this means it does not pack up small, so you cant really put it into your pocket.
    Lastly, i do like a rear pocket on a jacket, which this lacks.
