As mentioned I thought this jacket is waterproof. But I was wrong, the water was entering form zip line. An my phone went useless because of water. An the material on the collar stinks.
I just got it three weeks before and I was waiting to test it. Few days ago when it rained heavily, I used it. I was in a downpour for half an hour and not a drop entered inside. The best thing is, it kept me cool. Normally the other rain jackets makes me feel sweaty, this one kept me cool. And the inner chest pocket accommodated a large smart phone.
Weight, breathable fabric, looks good
Hood is large and it obstructs the vision.
I bought this product after enquiring a lot in decathlon store since I am a regular trekker across western ghats. But i was disappointed by quality of product since i bought this product with intention of protecting myself from rain. I trekked in one of the peak in karnataka called mullayanagiri all along in drizzling rain with a belief of jacket being water proof. But i was surprised to see that water enters through side zip. I bought this jacket for my hampta pass trek this month,but i don't think this will protect me from rains in himachal. Really disappointed by this product

Good, lightweight waterproof for walking/hiking and everyday use. The sizing is on the small size so I'd advise taking a size larger than your usual especially if pairing with a fleece or jumper
Sizing. UK Large is closer to Medium
The product was at my doorstep the very next day. So far it has been able to withstand a light drizzle and cold winds. The temperature at my location has dropped down to 10 C and so far this jacket is more than capable to handle it. I hope it will be able to endure much more cold, wind and rain.
Good product quality
Would be happy if it had a layer of fleece inside
Arrived next day ! Exceeded expectations
Sizing accurate - most certainly waterproof
I was actually looking for a work jacket, to use on a building project that meant I would be outside in all weathers. It needed to be waterproof, light (so that I could add layers underneath), not too bulky, and snug at the cuffs and around the bottom so that it wouldn't get caught on scaffolding, tools, etc. I tried builder's merchant/workwear sites, but this seemed the best, and in use, it has been great. Velcro on the cuffs keeps and a drawstring on the bottom edge keeps it snug, and even without extra layers, it is quite warm. It hasn't been through the worst of the winter yet, but so far, no negatives. Oh, and it was very good value, too.
I've had other 'waterproof' coats that aren't really waterproof, not in heavy rain anyway. This seems to be waterproof. It's my son's and he came home soaked recently and yet his suit jacket underneath was completely dry. So good job
It keeps the rain out and is pretty stylish too
Bought as a present, good value for money, looks smart for casual wear but appears suitable for hillwalking too (still got to try it out in really bad weather)
Good fit, well made, nice material
Could have been a bit longer...
the coat was brought for my son , he has used it and he is happy with this product
