I used this a few times during riding my bike near my locality for small distance at low speed and it just felt like I wore nothing. I mean wearing this jacket is equals to not wearing this jacket at all. It doesn't protect from wind even at low speed. Don't know how this will protect in the mountains and trance himalayas where wind speed is high and chilled. In description on the website shows this jacket provides protection against UPF 50 and on the tag (the one tied with the jacket) it is UPF 40+. What does it mean?did I just waisted my money? I ordered a down jacket too from your website and now I'm worried.

Not that happy, high price tag
very good for people
and my body
This could be perfect, but it isnt.
my nearest decathlon is 170m round trip. As I know my sizes, I often buy mail order.
Pros: material, quality of manufacture, zips, armpit breathing, weight. almost everything.
Cons: stuff sack should be built in, the product is windproof, a small stuff sack on a windy day...probably going to get lost.
This is the second walking decathlon jacket I've had, the other a more substantial one. Both are very loose round the neck with way too large hoods. It's a windproof jacket! but won't windproof the neck, and a stiff wind will blow off the hood - elastic way way too loose. Many similar jackets have no hood, so it's better than nothing. If you don't need a hood, it's still great and cheap.
If I had tried this at the store, I wouldn't have bought it, but for this price, I decided to keep it and it works ok, with a buff type product on the neck to plug the gap it leaves.
