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 repellent component (different from waterproof)
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water, so that it stays lightweight, breathable and warm. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes).

Environmental measurements
The environmental impact of each product is calculated for the product's entire life cycle, using different indicators. A general ABCDE mark is attributed to help you identify the best environmental performance by comparing products to each other (t-shirts, rucksacks, etc). Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of the environmentally-friendly labelling approach.For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

Component breathability
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

Response of the brand

Hello Amit,

Thank you for sharing your feedback on the Helium Windproof Jacket. This jacket is designed to be ultra-light so that it occupies very less space in your backpack, and can be used only when there is light wind. It is ideal for summer hikes where you would need a lighter layer for wind protection. This has been tested in the labs as well as in the field. But, you are right, it doesn't stop you from cold. You will have to wear a fleece or a down jacket underneath.You can always get back to me in case you have more queries.Thanks & Regards,

Varun Nair E-Sport Manager DECATHLON
