Brought this top to use on cold days combined with a Btwin base layer. Top is race fit, I am a medium which did fit but chose the large as I would be wearing a base layer underneath. Top has a nice fleece lining which keeps you warm enough on cold days but any lower than 5 degrees and I would recommend a heavier top. I would say that this will be the perfect top come spring/autumn.
It's well made, lightweight and stylish very pro looking at a bargain price. The top I brought is the 700 all black with white writing as pictured not the 520. Got mine for £30, absolute bargain in my opinion, well done Btwin keep up the good work.
Look good, price, comfort
Sleeves a bit on the long side, but I am short 5.7
Had one for Christmas so have used it in really cold weather as a second layer. Really good and kept me warm. Nice long sleeve length so no bother with gaps. Definitely recommend!! :)
Warmth, windproof, good fit
Good top, moves well with your body. Get a size up though and the arms could do with a thumb hole on the sleeves to keep your hands warmer in colder temps
Smalll sizing, no thumb holes
Bought the jersey as it was reasonably priced and after using it on a couple of autumn rides I have found it to be a great item of clothing for those days where its a little too cold for a short sleeved jersey but too warm for a full winter jersey.
The item blocks the wind very well & the fleece keeps you warm. The fit is good though a little tight around the collar when zipped to the top. There are also 4 rear pockets one with a zip for your keys or money etc and three normal back pockets though they do seem a little on the small side compared to some other jerseys. A good hem with gripper & good elasticated cuffs which stop the cold air getting in and the jersey from riding up.
Overall I really like this jersey certainly for the price and materials. Well worth a look.
Good wind blocking & back ventilation. A good fit.
A little tight around the neck.
Very good quality. Got this as a gift but would buy another. Well put together. Nicely lines. Definately recommend this one.
Thanks for recommending this warm long sleeve top. Is used the same one through the winter/spring and I concur, it is excellent

Size wasn't a good fit, need to do a few more miles before it will fit proper.
Bought a large and it's a tight fit.
I went and bought another after the first time on.
I really like the look and fit of the Jersey which first led me to buy it. I've worn it all winter with a Base Layer underneath from 2 upto about 12ish degrees. Anything over I just wear it on its own. I have it in blue and orange.
Well done decathlon.
As it's been quite windy and cold, ha not the opportunity to wear this until yesterday, but ten minutes in had to return to the card and replace it with my Gore windproof jacket. All the same the stitching on the cuff is coming away meaning the cuff is coming away from the main garment. Unacceptable given it was used for around 15 minutes total.
I trust that this is an issue with this singular particular item and not affecting them all, but looking here shows the thing is no longer stocked.
Good Fit, Comfortable
Poor finishing and stitching
Thanks for taking your time to review the 520 Jacket. I'm sorry to hear that the stitching has come away from the cuff in such a shirt space of time. I would suggest that you return this product, we still do this product in Blue and the Black will be back in stock in June. Unfortunately this product isn't windproof so is only really designed to be used on a mild day where a jersey isn't quite warm enough.

This is my favourite cycling jersey for fit, comfort and looks. I've worn it through the autumn, mild days in winter, and spring mornings/evenings. The fit is great, tight but not restrictive, and doesn't ride up. I really like the subtle styling of black with tiny blocks of colour - something you can match up with socks/oversocks, for example.
The only reason I'm giving it a 4 rather than a 5 is that it's lacking any reflective tabbing, which would've extended it's use. If I'm going out early or will be coming home late, I've to default to other products. Something you should consider next season BTwin!
Fit, price, comfort
lacks reflective elements to make it versatile
Another great product from BTwin. I have the soft shell which I live and as its getting slightly warmer added this to my cycling collection. It's warm, omfortable and very nicely made which means it feels like it will last for many seasons to come.
Warm, comfortable and well made with a beat fit
