This jacket was a fantastic buy. I bought this to go climbing Munro's in Scotland in late October. We had seven hours on the hills in 40-50 mph winds and sleeting rain. My Saloman boots gave in and leaked, my Skinz gloves were like a sponge, but this jacket kept me dry throughout, amazing value for the price. I had two layers underneath and fine whilst walking but needed an extra fleece layer when standing around. I am also using this for Adventure racing as it is light and breathable so well worth the money.
I am thoroughly impressed by the craftsmanship of this jacket - it is at par with premium brands such as Arcteryx or Mountain Hardwear. Highly functional piece of gear - pockets and ventilation are very well thought out. The value is unbeatable, well done, Decathlon!
Bought for my son's DofE. Reasonable weight and very waterproof. Slim fit which is good for a tall lanky teenager. Looks good.
Well made comfortable fitting jacket which so far has kept me dry in the wet.
Great jacket with premium feel. Haven't tested in a real down pour but light rain beads off no problem. I bought 3xl so I could layer up underneath if required. The vents are brilliant especially if walking or biking with pack on. Adjustment and fit are great and zips feel solid and dependable. This was 59.99 in store but reserved and paid 39.99 on line with free delivery to local asda. I will definitely go and look at this again when it's time for replacement and a 2 year warranty is great for a jacket that will be well worn. Well done decathlon
So far i have found this jacket performed well. I have used it during a couple of hikes in Wales, although not in very wet conditions surprisingly. The material seems tough and doesn’t russell too much when you wear it.
Excellent quality for the money and a very comfortable fit.
Can someone advise on the best way to wash this jacket in order to protect its waterproof and breathable qualities ? The label says 30degC, no fabric conditioner, no tumble dry. Any advice on detergent ? Normal stuff (bio/non bio?) or nixwax specialist stuff?? Anyone got any washing experiences?
Ideally I would have given this a 4.5 as it does have it faults but for the money it is very, very good.
The material is 2 layers I think and stretchy almost like one of those soft-shell-esque waterproof jackets that are currently en vogue.
I should say that I have had many waterproof jackets of various prices and materials over the years from Haglofs, Rab, Sprayway and Montane, North Face and Berghaus. Everything from eVent, Goretex, Pertex Shield Plus and own-brand laminates and ventile. The Rab eVent was good but being a pull-on is awkward (especially since putting on weight) and was dearer than this in a half-price sale whereas all the others failed at sometime or other - several on the first outing!
What I can say now after a good few uses and some not insignificant rain is that it is still beading and is comfortable to wear.
Pluses - performance, price, hood adjustments once used to it, comfort, weight (okay - not super light though).
Minuses - sleeves overlong and velcro tabs need to be used fully as cuffs too wide, not packable (not a real issue for me), hood peak maybe a tad too short, small choice of colours.
Overall I am really happy with this jacket so far. Most important for me is performance and value and this scores very highly in both regards.
The pit zips and okay, and I can live with the sleeve and cuff issue. It works better for me that jackets costing 2, 3 or even more times the price and seriously.... why would you bother paying more for a name?
It could have more features but that would probably result in a higher price so I am happy with it as is.
I should say that I haven't washed it yet and will avoid doing so as long as possible but so far, so good :)
Received this today promptly within 48 hours of ordering. Having had previous misgivings about buying online due to outdoors kit with big fat American sizes I referred to the Decathlon sizing chart which turns out to be correct. The drop tail and tailored cut is on the athletic side, with a 40" chest and 32" waist it fits perfectly with room for a fleece or similar underneath. Go up a size if you are more portly than my self. Features such as the pit vents, laser cut pockets and the helmet compatible hood are all top notch as is the stitching. Its possibly not as downpour proof as heavier Goretx jackets but no DWR coated breathable jacket is in my experience unless you want to spend a few hundred on a Gore paclite. You can get other jackets at this price point but nothing as usable or robust - it's excellent.
