With the "3in1" system, the jacket will be ideal in cold conditions (up to - 1°C) and for hot weather trips, you can leave the inner layer at home, taking only the rain coat.
You can also use the inside fleece alone, as a mid-layer, over a t-shirt.
3 options in one jacket!
Keeping your belongings secure: The top priority!
When you are backpacking, what could be worse than losing your passport or having your phone stolen?
In order to prevent this risk and enable you to enjoy your experience with total peace of mind, we have added a large discreet and compartmented pocket on the chest.
You can keep all your belongings in one secure place.
There is even a snap hook to be able to attach your keys and avoid losing them.
We have added reflective tabs on the cuffs.
WARNING, these parts are not standardised, they are not PPE (PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT) and do not guarantee safety or protection.
When you want, you can turn the tightening tab around the wrist to uncover the reflective areas.
Resistance to abrasion
We carry out laboratory tests on our fabrics, according to different criteria:
Resistance to abrasion, to mimic the rubbing of rucksack straps.
We carry out a standardised Martindale rub test, during which the jacket's fabric is rubbed against another fabric. The aim is to control the wear limits of the fabric and when pilling begins. The jacket passes the test easily as it reaches 20,000 cycles on the Martindale, above the average for other jackets on the market.
Resistance to tearing
The jacket has also been subjected to single rip tearing tests. The aim is to mimic in a laboratory the effect of your jacket snagging on something outdoors and being ripped. Through this test protocol, we check that once it is ripped, the fabric does not continue to tear and still protects you for years to come.
Did you know that your TRAVEL 100 3in1 jacket is eco-designed?
The lining of this jacket is DOPE DYED: It is the process by which fibres are dyed before the thread is spun. This reduces the effect on the environment, particularly on water consumption. Indeed, the usual dyeing process uses a lot of water, by using this technique, we avoid over-use.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators. An overall rating from A to E is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing and contrasting products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).
Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating initiative.

We have tested this jacket in England, during a week-long backpacking hike. A group of independent testers walked in the shoes of our real backpacker users to test, improve and approve the TRAVEL 100 3in1 jacket. It has therefore been designed and validated in the field in real backpacking conditions: walking, youth hostels, transport, picnics. It has gone through and survived everything!
