protection from the cold on your MOUNTAIN HIKES.Tested for optimum comfort between -5°C and -10°C.
The best in terms of the balance of warmth, lightness and price. No longer any need to look for an efficient padded jacket. The body is covered with feathers for greater comfort.
The outer layer of the Jacket is very soft and can easily get torn by small throne also.I have asked for repair or replacement of jacket but their was no response from the decathlon side,really disappointed by the service.

Hello Mr. Vivek,
Thanks for your feedback on the Quechua X-light jacket. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you by our product.
I agree totally with you that the outer fabric of the X-light jacket (in general all down jackets) is light and that is due to the reasons as follows, these jackets are meant for usage on the mountains for a hiker which demands light weight and compactness which is guaranteed by the down inside and the light fabric outside, plus the light fabric allows the down inside to fluff up later on a longer use. Also, these are worn with a windproof or a rain jacket outside to tackle the light fabric. A solution for this now is the 3M tape available in the market, which seals the tear totally retaining the properties of the jacket completely. I apologize again for the improper response you had faced from our end earlier.
I stay at your disposal if you need any further assistance in future.
Please work on the feather losing issue.Otherwise its a great product within the price range.
Lightweight,works efficiently in -12C to -15 C
Feathers coming out when packed in the pouch
I went in for another design of down jacket, ended up with this. Bargain, tight fitting I went up a size, warm, decent light piece of kit. You won't be staying in a downpour in this, it's water resistant to a minor point, and not waterproof, I know this as I got wet, it absorbs the rain after a short exposure, also has tide marks after drying out. It comes with a bag, I haven't packet it down yet, but I keep it in one of the deep inside pockets, along with lightweight gloves and a hat. Overall, it's good fair weather down jacket and a bargain for less than £20.
Great value for the price 9/10
Darker lining and pull cord on bottom of jacket would make it 10/10
Great jacket for the price, lightweight and warm!
Tried on in store so ensured a good fit before purchase. The diagonal pattern looks better on me than the horizontal banded design of the other style. The side pockets get in the way when holding keys etc when leaning over. Inside pockets nice and big for letters etc! No chest pocket which would have been nice for cards/wallet. Very warm especially when waiting for a train in freezing cold weather. The hood is small so I don't use, would buy without hood. It gets too warm in mild weather for me so it's handy that it packs away in the small supplied stuff sac when not used. Not suitable for rain use so I have avoided wearing it on wet days.
This is an amazingly affordable down jacket. Its perfectly suited for UK's winter weather. I was initially a bit skeptical when I held it as it is quite light but am surprised by its performance in cold and windy weather.
The sizing is just right. I followed decathlons size guide. I am about 100 cm at the chest and a size M (grey) suited me perfectly. I thoroughly recommend it
For the price this has proved to be a real asset. Packs away into a small space and has been ideal to slip on during cycling coffee breaks to avoid cooling down too rapidly. A product I would thoroughly recommend to be useful for almost every one engaging in a range of outdoor activities.
I didn't need this, but saw it on sale as I walked past. Love the colour and price.
It's actually quite thick and more than warm enough for the UK.
I love the fit round the neck - I don't need to use my Buff.
My only down side is the zip toggle pulls - they are too short and stiff paracord. Always unwind and drop off. I've re fitted them in a different way and are now ok, unfortunately my wife lost a purple one off her jacket.
cost, colours, fit round the neck/head

This was probably my favourite item that I bought from Decathlon for my recent hiking expedition. Great for wearing around camp, or even to sleep in during cold nights. Excellent value for money.
Lightweight, very warm, cheap
