Question:

Does this jacket pack into its own pocket? Or is the pouch separate. If so that's a real bummer, because I don't always want to have to carry an extra pouch with me just to pack it away, like the other puffy jacket you have, it packs into its own pocket.

Answer:

This model easily packs into its storage bag. It is very light and easy to carry with you.

There is a small opening, slightly above the inside pockets, intentionally sewed so as to create a large pocket between the inside and outside pockets, but with this extremely small (finger size) opening. To what purpose?

Answer:

This is related to the design of the jacket. There is no specific function of it.

Good down coat

Very nice down coat. The only thing is that it is quite sensitive to stains, the stain quickly remains, even if it is just water.

it's not worth it

Keeps you warm, the cut is ok for slim fit people, yes: - the design mistake, the inside of the collar is made of strip and gets dirty in the last step with the fat/sweat on the neck, besides the strange sensation offered by that material on the wet neck, as on the mountain you still sweat, maybe it's a surprise for whoever thought of the model; - after washing it tightened at the base and it doesn't fit me anymore, although it was perfect at the time of purchase; - the fluff collects in various places when washing/drying, probably a new design mistake; I washed and dried it according to the instructions, using balls, 4 in number, my dryer blew for hours and the fluff still did not spread evenly in the much too long horizontal sections of the jacket; they had to be made shorter so that the feathers could not migrate so much, after they have moved tens of cm you can't bring them back even with a bag of tennis balls; I washed/dried it several times in the hope that I would fix it but in vain, wasted time and money on special detergent and water+electricity. Unfortunately, I cut the inner label, but maybe I will be able to return it, the idea of the jacket is good and the price is convenient, but unfortunately the faulty implementation, the details make it impossible to buy.

It keeps warm and protects from gusts and cold.

Very useful

I used a goose down jacket for the first time. As I am 1.83 cm tall and 97 kg, size xl fits perfectly. I found the mold and design very successful. I loved that it was so light. I use it in Istanbul city. Even though I wore very thick underwear, I never felt cold. It is very interesting that you do not sweat openly in a closed environment. When you cover your front and hood on cold nights in Istanbul, the cold does not affect you. I wish it was impermeable. That's my only complaint. It definitely gets water in the rain. It is also stated that it is not waterproof.tsk

How warm is this padded jacket?

This padded jacket, worn as a 3rd layer, has been certified for an active comfort temperature of -10°C during a standardised test in a thermal chamber. The model is wearing a synthetic long-sleeved T-shirt and a light fleece underneath. It works with a simulated 5 km/h wind. We have also tested this model in static mode. Its comfort temperature is 0°C in this case.

The advantages of a duck down and feather filling

The filling power of down has 3 advantages for mountain sports: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers.- Ultra-lightweight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same degree of warmth. This saves even more weight in your backpack.- Ultra-compressible.

How to measure the fill power of a down and feather wadding?

The fill power is a measure of the down fts thermal insulation capacity and its potential to InchtrapInch air. It is expressed in CUIN (cubic inches). So, down with a higher fill power (higher CUIN number) will occupy more space, trap more air and provide greater thermal insulation. This puffer jacket, filled with 90% down and 10% feathers, has a guaranteed fill power of 800 CUIN (international standard) or over.

Weight of filling

XS: 122 g S: 131 gM: 140gL: 149 gXL: 159 g2XL: 170 g3XL: 181 g4XL: 192g

How to care for a down jacket?

The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. But the less you wash it, the more it will retain its thermal insulation and water repellency.Our advice: 1/Machine wash with a detergent suitable for down or technical garments, at 30°, with 2 or 3 tennis balls. Gentle spin cycle. 2/ Tumble dry with 2 or 3 tennis balls, and repeat 2 or 3 times until it is completely dry.

Water-repellent property of component (not to be confused with waterproofing)

The water repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm. The fabric of this down jacket is water repellent, however, we recommend that you wear a waterproof jacket over it in the rain. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating (PFC-free) its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use. We recommend that you restore it after each wash.

How to restore the water-repellent properties?

Once you have cleaned your padded jacket, we recommend you use a water-repellent reactivator spray to preserve the hydrophobic properties of the outer fabric. This renews the fabric’s water repellent properties and optimises its performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.

A snag? how to repair your fleece

A tear on a padded jacket can happen when trekking! The good news is that it can be repaired with a repair patch to prevent the tear from getting bigger or feathers from escaping. Don't you feel at ease carrying out this repair yourself? Don't worry! Some Decathlon workshops offer an in-store repair service to mend your padded jacket using a heat-bonded patch.

Product testing

4 independent Forclaz trekkers and 4 members of Forclaz tested this down jacket during 3 days of trekking in November 2021 up to 9842 ft. altitude near Chamonix in the Mont Blanc Country. The feedback given to us after this test let us validate this down jacket for mountain trekking.
