Technical Information

1
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.
2
Waterproofness
Waterproofness is a fabric's ability to prevent rain water from passing through. We measure the fabric's resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on standard ISO 811). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A material with a waterproof rating of 2000 mm resists the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (which roughly corresponds a 2-hour rain shower).

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.

A rating to compare products' environmental impact
A product's environmental impact is calculated for its entire life cycle using various indicators. Products are then given an ABCDE rating to help you easily identify products having the best environmental performance (lowest impact) by comparing different products of the same type (T-shirts, bottoms, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon voluntarily chooses to display the environmental ratings of its products.

I love this gilet and its very comfortable to wear
Perfect fit keep wind out
Well worth the money
Used for 1 week or less
Desperately needed one of these as my old one's zip broke. This is tremendous value, good quality and does what I expect. Principally, good wind-protection in front, and breathability round the back. Also, good reflective flashes and air-vents., as well as a generous zipped pocket. Not tried in the rain as yet, though I know it is only water-repellant, not waterproof. My previous one was a Sugoi and lasted well, so I hope to have the same out of this one.
Excellent wind-proof technology on the front panel
Medium size came up slightly short in length
good cycling gilet
