Technical Information

1
Fill Power of the down/feather filling
For this down jacket filled with a 75/25 mix, the fill power of the down/feathers is guaranteed to be greater than or equal to 540 CUIN. The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. So, the more loft the down has (i.e. the higher the CUIN number), the more space it will occupy and the more air it will trap, thereby providing greater thermal insulation.
2
The advantages of a duck down and feather filling (for the back and front of the down jacket)
The down's long-lasting fill power gives it 3 important qualities for hiking: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra-low weight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same level of insulation. This saves even more weight in your backpack - Ultra-compressible
3
Feather origin
Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers, which are sourced in accordance with our responsible material commitments. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are bred for their meat and which are plucked after slaughtering.http://developpement-durable.decathlon.com/documents-et-rapports/documents/
4
The advantages of synthetic filling (for the arms, sides and hood)
Synthetic filling (wadding) is an effective alternative to feathers: - it provides good thermal insulation even when wet - it provides some breathability and is recommended for sports activities (down is recommended for static or moderate activity)

Care instructions for a jacket filled with down and feathers
Down jackets can be worn all year round and will certainly need to be washed. Follow the instructions by clicking the link below: http://www.quechua.com/wash-your-down-jacket
6
In the event of rain
This down jacket fabric is water-repellent. This fabric treatment makes drops of water run off its surface, so that it takes longer for the water to get inside the jacket, giving you the time to find some shelter. But the down jacket is not waterproof. We therefore recommend that you wear a waterproof jacket over your down jacket in case of prolonged exposure to rain.
7
Note regarding the lighter coloured versions
The X-Light down jacket is made with a fine fabric in order to make it lightweight and compact. Please note that the feathers are slightly visible through the fabric of the lighter coloured jackets.

Test
All our down jackets are laboratory tested in a 5 km/h wind, worn as a 3rd layer on a thermal dummy (over a long sleeved T-shirt and fleece). Their level of thermal insulation is measured on a scale of 1 to 5, so that you can choose the one that suits you best.

Product test
Temperature chamber test This is used to validate our design choices. We reproduce the temperature, wind and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains. In this way we put the thermal insulation where you most need it. Feather-proofing test We use a test machine to ensure that the feathers do not escape from your jacket during your activities. So our fabrics are "featherproofed" to ensure lasting insulation.

Stockage tips
Store on a hanger in a clean and dry place

Maintenance tips
Down jackets needed to be treated with special care. We recommend taking your down jacket to the dry cleaners. Machine wash at 30°C, add 2 tennis balls to restore the loft of the down. Rinse twice. Tumble drying highly recommended: synthetic cycle with 3 tennis balls to restore the loft of the down, Run several cycles until the down has dried completely. This will prevent the down from clumping and losing its insulating power. See the care instructions in the online guide

very comfy down jacket at affordable price
Used for 1 week or less
Bought these jackets on 24.12 for going to manali. It worked well for december weather of manali. Should see further performance. Thanks to Decathlon
Light weight and warm
Used for 3 to 6 months
Got these Light weight and warm Down from Decathlon-INdore a few weeks back. I used them in my latest expedition to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.
I used this Downjacket at -33 degrees with two inner fleece jackets and one NORTH FACE inner thermal wear. The Jacket really stood to its promise, its very light weight, will keep you warm easliy at -5 to -7 degrees. It also stood to normal snow flakes in the open . The jacket itself is not wind proof but is comfortable. I would recommed The Black color Down jacket as it absorbs more Heat. comparing with Katmandu Gears, Montane Jackets, Quechua Jackets are more Price compatitive with commitments.

Response of the brand
Hello Mr. Shridhar,

Thanks for your time to review the X-Light down jacket by Quechua. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

The best-known way to stay warm on the mountains is by the system of layering. To have one single jacket keep you warm is difficult as it will end up bulky to fit in your backpack and heavy also. So the best-recommended way is by layering, a base layer to trap the body heat, a T-shirt to breathe and pass the extra heat, a layer of fleece for warmth, down jackets when there is more warmth needed and externally a windproof+waterproof jacket to protect from the wind, snow, and rain. At Decathlon, all possible efforts are taken to ensure that the value a user gets for the price he pays is always better and this jacket is never an exception to that promise.

I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you and if you are unsatisfied with the product, I request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and seek for a refund or exchange with any product.

I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.

This product has great quality, infact it's the lightest down jacket available at this price value. This can be worn as athletic wear also. Decathlon is really making value for money products. Highly recommended.

Down feathers are coming out
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I wore this for everest base camp,chola pass trek in nepal. After 2 -3 days the down feathers are coming out from various places. And the outer layer is very thin and fragile. I dont know what to do with this..i bought it around 3 months ago.
Response of the brand
Hello Saurav,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Down Jackets are the lightest and compact solution for warmth. That makes it the ideal mid layer for your several day treks. It is quite normal to see the feathers coming out through the seams, and it doesn't affect the performance of the jacket unless the jacket is torn or it happens due to the stitches started to come off. If you see there is a defect like that, kindly visit any of our stores, and the team would be more than happy to help you with a solution.

I am available for any further queries:)

Great purchase good price
Warm and amazingly light
Used for 1 week or less
This is probably the best gear to carry on a moderately cold trek considering the insulation, water resistance and the lightness of the material. Only gripe being that it is too loose at the hands and if only it could be altered a little.
Perfect fit And comfortable
