Additional recommended products
Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine. To renew the fabric's water-repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.
7
Waterproof component
This garment has been shower-tested using 60 litres of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
8
Component breathability
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the resistance, the more the fabric allows water vapour created when the body is working to escape and therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
9
Water repellent component
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 fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received water-repellent treatment.
10
Environmental measurements
The environmental impacts of the product are calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. A global grading system of ABCDE is made to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type to each other (T-shirts, pants, backpacks ...). Decathlon is a voluntary participant of this environmental display process. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

Fault in design of the product.
Used for 1 week or less
I had used this product and notice that water was seeping through the zip and also the pockets. I think this might be because of the design and low quality zip material used in this product

Hello Rishabh Jain,

Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 rain jackets. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you by our product.

To give a technical insight on the jacket, the arpenaz series of jackets are meant for protection from the rain and wind for a hiker in the lowlands. They come with 2000 mm waterproofing from the results of water column test used to test the waterproofing of fabrics. A 2000 mm fabric can withstand a rain for 2 hours on the lowlands. 

If you can let me know the usage you are looking for, it would be great for us to suggest the right jacket for your usage.

Response of the brand
Hi Siva,

Thanks you for sharing your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 men's hiking rain jacket. The waterproofing(hydrostatic head) of the jacket is tested in millimetres according to Schmerber test (ISO 811 standard) which is completely different than the measure of rain. The only common thing is the unit of measurement which happens to be millimetres. Therefore 2000mm of hydrostatic head(waterproofing) is not same as 2000mm of rain. Could you please tell me more about the usage of the jacket?

Thanks and regards,

Hello Rahul Oza,

Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 rain jacket. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

 The Arpenaz 100 jackets are 2000 mm Novadry ( a standard to test the waterproofing on jackets,  it means the fabric can withstand up to 2000 mm of  pressure exerted by water, equivalent to a rain shower on a hike lasting for 2 hours). These products have been also tested under similar weather conditions by users on hike and also in laboratory. It would be great if you could get that jacket to any of our store closer to you so that we can check if there is any defect on the product you received and provide you with an exchange/refund for the same.

Also, if you could let me know your usage I would be happy to suggest you products from our range which will match your requirement.

Hello Paras Gupta,

Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 rain jacket. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

1. The Arpenaz 100 jackets are 2000 mm Novadry ( a standard to test the waterproofing on jackets,  it means the fabric can withstand upto 2000 mm of  pressure exerted by water, equivalent to a rain shower lasting for 2 hours). These products have been also tested under similar weather conditions by users and also in laboratory. I doubt that the piece you received has some defects and you are right to claim for a refund/exchange from any of our stores closer to you.

2. I sincerely apologize for the behavior of our collaborator who dealt with you. If you could let me know the store you would like to get it exchanged from I would ask the retail manager to get in touch with you and ensure that the issue is taken care properly. Thanks for visiting us again!

I stay available if you need further assistance.

I am a person who always looks for the best performing product which is reasonably priced. Good rain wear, solves the purpose, performs at the company claims. Bought it at Decathlon(Uppal, Telangana). Have been using from past 1 month, product is quite sturdy... Had plans on buying wildcraft and other brands and have been reviewing from past 3 months before being to decathlon. Very reasonably priced. Staff, quite helpful in choosing the right product for ones needs. Love the store, found it to be just as at other sports stores at USA, U.K...etc... Have joined 5 of my friends in... Have visited the store thrice after my first purchase.!
Store maintains sportive environment..!
Trial rooms too small
It's nice

Hello Karthick,

Thank you for you feedback on the Arpenaz 100 rain jacket. We are gladd that you liked the fit and comfort provided.

I apologise for the defective piece that you have purchased. Since water is seeping in I request you to visit your nearest Decathlon store and have the product exchanged. 

However I would like to inform you that a waterproof rating of 2000mm means that the fabric can withstand pressure exerted by 2000mm of water( the equivalent of a rain shower lasting for 2 hours).
