    5. Cuff adjustment
      partially elasticated cuffs.
    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 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 swelling, and keeps it 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).
    8. Component breathability
      To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its RET or total evaporative resistance (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 / 920 = little or no breathability.
    9. Breathability
      In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overtrousers (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems allow you to regulate the temperature inside the garment and also to facilitate the transfer of perspiration generated by the body during physical effort.
    Product testing
    1. Composition

    2. Cleaning advice
      Machine wash at 30°C. Fasten zips and riptabs before washing. Restore full water repellent properties applying a treatment after every 2 or 3 washes. A full range of water repellent products is available in all Decathlon stores. These products will help o

      Used for 1 week or less
      I used this a few times during riding my bike near my locality for small distance at low speed and it just felt like I wore nothing. I mean wearing this jacket is equals to not wearing this jacket at all. It doesn't protect from wind even at low speed. Don't know how this will protect in the mountains and trance himalayas where wind speed is high and chilled. In description on the website shows this jacket provides protection against UPF 50 and on the tag (the one tied with the jacket) it is UPF 40+. What does it mean?did I just waisted my money? I ordered a down jacket too from your website and now I'm worried.

      excellent value for money! super lightweight and packable this brilliant wind jacket protected me from the sun and wind during spring hikes in Greek mountain trails. The price is unbelievable as most big brand wind jackets i looked up online in this lightweight range were around 8 times the price of thid.. I'll get a second one!
