    6. 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.
    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 swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes).
    8. Component breathability
      To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its RET or total evaporative resistance (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 920 = little or no breathability.
    9. Breathability
      In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overtrousers (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems allow you to regulate the temperature inside the garment and also to facilitate the transfer of perspiration generated by the body during physical effort.

      excellent value for money! super lightweight and packable this brilliant wind jacket protected me from the sun and wind during spring hikes in Greek mountain trails. The price is unbelievable as most big brand wind jackets i looked up online in this lightweight range were around 8 times the price of thid.. I'll get a second one!

      This could be perfect, but it isnt.
      my nearest decathlon is 170m round trip. As I know my sizes, I often buy mail order.
      Pros: material, quality of manufacture, zips, armpit breathing, weight. almost everything.
      Cons: stuff sack should be built in, the product is windproof, a small stuff sack on a windy day...probably going to get lost.
      This is the second walking decathlon jacket I've had, the other a more substantial one. Both are very loose round the neck with way too large hoods. It's a windproof jacket! but won't windproof the neck, and a stiff wind will blow off the hood - elastic way way too loose. Many similar jackets have no hood, so it's better than nothing. If you don't need a hood, it's still great and cheap.
      If I had tried this at the store, I wouldn't have bought it, but for this price, I decided to keep it and it works ok, with a buff type product on the neck to plug the gap it leaves.
