Additional recommended products
Care products: waterproof spray or wash-in waterproof liquid. To restore the water repellent property of the fabric and optimise the performance of your garment throughout its lifetime. We recommend using these products with each wash or more frequently.
How the temperature rating is measured
Ambient temperature is thermally neutral: the user feels neither hot nor cold. Temperature rating in accordance with the ISO 11079 standard, under the following conditions: Walking at 5 km/h with no wind or sunshine. Jacket worn together with: upper body: long-sleeved T-shirt + shirt + sleeveless down gilet / lower body: tights + fleece base layer + trousers / head: Ushanka + hood / hands: under-gloves + gloves / feet: ski socks + apres-ski boots.
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Components with a 2000 mm rating can withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours).
Waterproofing of the garment
Technologies: this garment has been validated in a shower test under 60 Litres of water / sqm / hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
Water repellent property of the component
The water-repellency of fabric is its ability to let the water slide off its surface, without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not soak up water & therefore remains lightweight & warm. Fabric is made water repellent by applying treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be renewed during lifetime of the garment (we recommend each wash). Water repellent treatment products are available in our stores. All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water repellent treatment.
Quantity of feathers at the waist
Here is the quantity of feathers on the waist for the parka. This weight corresponds to 90% of the theoretical weight.
XS = 405 g / S = 496 g / M = 514 g / L = 547 g / XL = 558 g / XXL = 605 g / XXXL = 640 g
Our traceability system means we can guarantee the origin of the feathers, in accordance with our commitment to use responsibly sourced materials. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are bred for their meat and which are plucked after slaughtering.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impacts is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators.
An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, rucksacks, etc.) with each other.
Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating system.

The advantages of duck down and feather filling*
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-lightweight: to provide equal warmth, feathers are lighter than synthetic wadding. This saves even more weight in your backpack
Care instructions for jackets filled with down and feathers
The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow the instructions by clicking the link below:
Store in a dry, ventilated place.
To help you choose the right gear, Forclaz, in partnership with Decathlon Research, provides the temperature ratings for its extreme cold product lines. The tests are conducted on a mannequin in an environmental chamber to measure the thermal insulating properties of the products. Physiological studies carried out by the Decathlon Research teams supplement these results to assess the level of warmth/cold perceived by users in real-life use.
