My second one

Bought my first one in Vires, Normandie 2011/12 have replaced it with replica apart from zip tags which are black instead of orange, same quality, same comfort and will probably last me for 5 or more years like the other did bearing in mind it was worn very often..

Great gilet at a great price!

I've used this gilet loads over the last year for general wear, walking and sailing. It looks great, fits well and the orange zip pullers finish it off nicely. Great price as also, just as good a the North Face and Musto kit I have and about a quarter of the price!

Brilliant piece of gear.

Superb. One quarter the price of North Face equivalent and at least as good if not better. I have both and write from experience.

shoddy work

Bought and wore 3 times,and after owning for 2 weeks zip completely came away from main body emailed Decathlon no reply so it is now in the bin as too far away from nearest store will not be back.

Dear Sir,
I'm really sorry to hear about your inconvenience with this Quechua Forclaz 100 Gilet.
I have already forwarded your feedback to our product manager in France.
If you still have the product you can return it to your closest store for an exchange or a refund.
Kind regards,
Reka Engel Angyal UK Market Manager Mountain sports DECATHLON
Not my only gilet, but my current favorite.

I think it was the largest size in the shop. Would have liked to have compared with the next size up. On the left hand side internally there seems to be a sort of pocket that runs from high to low. What might this be for?

Thermal comfort and windproof

The wind causes the perceived temperature to decrease considerably. With an outside temperature of 32°F and 12 mph winds, it will feel like the temperature is 14°F. The "windproof" components help to eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
