This is a 3 ply membrane jacket. That would be great but the fact that it's stretchy, perfectly cut and totally waterproof is bonkers. It's my go-to jacket for rainy hikes in North Wales now. Very impressed.
There's alot to like about this jacket, especially if your tall like me. Firstly its lovely and soft- you can happily wear it all day- Like a thick soft shell in fact. The breathability is superb when its not raining (more on that later) It's cut is long, the hood is great and the sleeves are perfect - if you have long arms...
The only negative is it wets out after an hour of heavy rain. And when it wets out like any other waterproof it gets damp inside. No waterproof works properly once the outer is overwhelmed and this happens to any waterproof relying on a dwr. which alas is most of them.You can spend £200 and this will happen or you can spend £59....
Had this jacket for nearly a year and a half and the zip went but they replaced it straight away
I'm 6'4" / 95kg and buy shirts with 38"
/XL sleeves, I'm really happy with this jacket as the cuffs come well over my wrists.
Very impressed with the quality and style of this jacket for the price point. It's kept me dry and warm with all the storms and cold winds that December/January have thrown at it, not spent a day hiking in mountain rain yet to truly test it though.
Best quality in very low cost.
I'm 6'4"/ 190cm tall and I have to buy extra long sleeve shirts to fit me. The fact that this jacket fits me perfectly in the arms and body without being hugely baggy is something of a miracle. I bought it for the fit. Wearing it in 35mph/ -12 degs windchill on top of Fairfield Horseshoe Saturday proved its brilliance at keep out the wind and keeping the warm in. Well done Decathlon for producing a perfect jacket for tall people, does the job and at a great price!
It was marketed as large, but it was more like medium, was very tight and did not fit. Gave it to my grandson. Never had problems with sizes in the past from other retailers.
Does what it says on the tin.
Very happy with this raincoat. I've used it for a few month, and never got wet, even after more than 30 minutes of heavy rain. I use it both in Shanghai, to cycle around when it rains, or during hikes. It's relatively breathable and also looks quite good for a Decathlon product.
- Only drawback : the sleeves are a bit long, and I have long arms. But when it rains, you're happy to have your under layer well covered, so I don't know what to think about that. Maybe 2cm shorter would be better ?
Excellent fit, features and overall quality waterproof fabric. Good build quality and attention to detail on all internal seams. For the price one of the best on the market today. Fantastic buy
