The product advantage
Lycra cuffs + thumb loops on cuffs to prevent any heat loss.
5
Recommended additional product
Care products: water-repellent reactivating spray or liquid. To boost fabric water-repellency and optimise your garment performance throughout its life. We recommend using these products with each wash.
6
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 (not to be confused with waterproofness)
A fabric is water-repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm. The fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we advise every wash). Products are available in our stores. All Quechua Softshells are water repellent.

A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is allocated to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental information. For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

Average Quality
Used for 1 week or less
i have been using this jacket from just last week and the under arm breathable cloth has started bubbling and makes jacket look a year old ... The other specifications are fine but quality has to improved.
Response of the brand
Hello Mr.Obaid,

Thanks for your feedback on the Windwarm 500 Softshell hiking jacket. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

To give you an insight on the construction of this jacket, the jacket is made of two fabrics, one the windproof material and the fleece near the underarm. One possible and most common reason for this is due to the wash with other products which has metal or zipper which can cause this issue. If you believe this is not the case for your jacket, can you please explain me your usage which will help me understand the issue better and provide you assistance at the earliest.

I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products.

Sportively,
Sandeep NAIR
Great item untill...

I bought this my partner for his birthday and he loved it, unfortunately a seam near the zip up pocket on the chest has burst so we need to return it to the shop. It is a great coat though.
Great Softshell Jacket

Used for 3 to 6 months
Great quality jacket, fits well and is warmer​ than a shell jacket. Colour is nice and bright (I wear mine cycling around uni so that's ideal). Armpit zips are a great addition as well. Pockets are the ideal size and clear of rucksack straps. Hood is comfortable and the jacket provides decent weather protection despite not being waterproof - treatment with Nikwax Softshell products helps this and keeps the jacket looking new.

They grey material on the cuffs and armpits is prone to bobbling and doesn't look as good as the rest of the jacket which is a shame but otherwise it's been great.

Ideal jacket for wearing around town/cycling/walking in colder weather. Recommended.
More than OK, but has issues
Used for 3 to 6 months
I'd like to give this a glowing review, but it has one major issue, the hood is too large. Getting a jacket to allow a fleece underneath - so it's not massively big in any way, leaves a large hood gathering wind, and doesn't turn with your head. I solved the problem with plastic a press stud kit off amazon for
Excellent value soft shell
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Used for ski mountaineering in alps 3 weeks.
+ Good value, well fitting softshell
+ Reasonable wet resistance
+ Good (not excellent) windproofing (ventile panels can be a bit cooling)
+ Well designed and made
- 'flock' lining keeps pilling off - black crumbs on the snow each time I took stuff out of my pocket.
- Pockets a bit flimsy, only one chest pocket.
- side vents are a bit fiddly (next to pocket zips) difficult to manage with gloves on.
Good

Bought this for my partner. He really likes it. Suitable for a spring/autumn jacket. Excellent with the thumb holes in the end of the sleeves to use with gloves. He would recommend it
