I purchased this jacket online a week ago and have used it on three consecutive days for my walks in the Mumbai rains. Extremely disappointed as the jacket was meant to be "The 1st 100% waterproof jacket in the range!", but does not live up to it at all. Water seeps in and my clothes are wet in about half an hour of walking in the rain. I had purchased it for a trek in the himalayas, but i guess now I will have to look for another product that is actually waterproof.
Not waterproof, inner clothes get wet
Excellent product in its range. Highly recommended to be used only if it's raining or if it's cold. Feel very hot if used otherwise. Good when used while on bikes. At Rs.1999.00 excellent buy.
Saw a friend in this and liked it. Had been looking at some three times the price but this looked just as good.
Excellent online service and quick phone call to ensure I was getting the correct thing.
Colour, style,fabric,lining,hope it is waterproof!
No inside pocket to hold the hood
I have worn this jacket quite a lot. Feels comfortable and though lightweight it's wind and showerproof! Like the fact that the hood is detachable too. The colour and style is exactly as advertised!
Lightweight and smart too!
i was impressed with prompt delivery.
returned jacket.requested replacement
not had replacement or refund
Returned jacket no response
I bought this jacket after being soaked in a hiking trip with a Kathmandu jacket and works very well. I have used it in all types of rain and wind and has kept me warm and dry. I love the color and the feminine shape. I really recommend all the waterproof clothes that Decathlon has
Waterproof, beautiful color and fit
A really well made jacket with quality zips and a great fit. However, after wearing the jacket for one week (I'm a professional dog walker), I was disappointed to find it wasn't waterproof in heavy rain. After walking for 3 hours in heavy rain, my clothes underneath were soggy!
Very well made jacket. Great in light rain showers
Not waterproof in heavy rain!
Thanks for your feedback on the Quechua Arpenaz 300 waterproof jacket and I apologise for the delay is responding. This jacket is tested to around 5000mm waterproofing which, in the UK, is moderate intensity. You can see how it is done here: https://www.youtube.com/watchv=uYKCZyaSnDo&list=PLIZaXMUrOOZfY56B7HJyWtrRDZ0ncjmxU&index=20. With you being out in British elements for longer periods of time I would recommend a jacket with slightly more waterproofing, an example being toe Forclaz 400, you can see it here: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/forclaz-400-women-plum-id_8356612.html. This one is testing up to 10,000mm so will stand up to more intensive downpours.
Once again, sorry for the delay. If you are still looking I hope this helps.

This is a very comfortable jacket. It keeps the wind and rain out. Its not too thick and bulky. It doesnt get 'wet' inside like my last jacket....so it must have some air flow!! It was a super price in the sale.
Nice looking practical jacket
Nothing disappointed me...
Does what it should.
Love this jacket, perfect for days when it's not too cold out but there is a bit of rain. Only negative is sizing, medium fits well (if not a little big) on the top but at the bottom it is a little tight. Great jacket overall especially at the sale price of £17.99, probably wouldn't pay the full asking price of £29.99 though.
Love the colour, hood with lip, all the pockets
