Thermal comfort and Windproof
Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold! With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°C. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
7
Water-repellency of the component (different to waterproofing)
A fabric's water repellent property is its capacity to repel water, allowing it to slide over its surface. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes).
8
Component breathability
To find out if a fabric is breathable, its total evaporation resistance RET (test based on ISO 11092), is measured. The lower the resistance, the more the fabric lets water vapour generated by body movements escape, therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9

Breathability of the garment
In addition to breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overtrousers designed for great hiking use (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems allow both temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
It's very useful for runner for all season. Great stuff...
Trust issue
Used for 1 week or less
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.

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.
