Front part of the gilet is waterproof and windproof.
Neon yellow for visibility in the day, reflective patches for riding at night.
Back made of mesh fabric for excellent breathability.
1 secure pocket with compartments in the back.
Gilet is well made and has a zip pocket big enough to carry phone + arm warmers and more. Folds down to fit in jersey back pocket. I recommend you try before you buy to get the fit right.
Great fit great price
Fitted well over 3 shirts & a rain jacket
Fulfills it’s descriptive claims.An excellent purchase.
Nice gilet, thicker than the one I previously bought. Nice reflective surface too
it is good, but could have some more colors. Th one I purchased is too loose for me and I wish to have it changed.
Sizing good. Long back. Useful pocket Good quality for the price
Brilliant product great value
Great jacket, good fit and ideal for night riding, good reflective strips making you highly visible. Excellent gilet and all this with Windproof/ Waterproof front.
I know cycling clothing sizing can be on the small side. I am usually medium so i ordered a large. Was a non starter, think i would be either an xl or xxl in this. Quality wise seemed ok but had to return straight away so didn't cycle in it.
If it's not right for you please feel free to return it for an exchange.

Initially really pleased with this top in terms of style, comfort and fit. But after a ride on a cold winters day for an hour the front and shoulders were wet inside even though the the mesh back is supposed to aid breathability. It doesn't. Needs to be made of breathable material.
Thank you for reviewing this product. As you say, this product isn't the most breathable jacket due to the material. Where you wearing a back pack or anything over your shoulders which may have caused the condensation on the inside of the jacket?
If you are unhappy with the product you can return it for an exchange/refund.

Great addition to my ever growing kit from decathlon, you will be seen with this on, fits snugly
One of the cheapest around and seems pretty good quality so far.
If you run or ride during temperature of less than 30C than this is a great buy. Otherwise Pease consider buying something else. The quality is good though.
It' fits well, the mesh back panel stops you getting damp inside, and it's great value.

To determine whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance (test based on standard ISO 11092). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric will let water vapor produced by the body escape, and therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric.
Waterproofing is a fabric's ability to prevent rain water from passing through. A fabric's waterproofing is determined by measuring its resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A material with a waterproof rating of 2000 mm resists the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (which roughly corresponds to a 2-hour rain shower).
Machine wash at 86°F. Synthetics cycle. Turn the article inside out. Use a minimal amount of laundry detergent. Do not use fabric softener. Line-dry in a warm, ventilated area. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean. Do not bleach. Do not place on a heater to dry.
Our team of product designers is based at the B'Twin Village in Lille (France). All year round, we conceive and develop new products that are easy to use, look great, and have the technical features needed for your cycling experiences. They are then mercilessly put to the test by users in the field, as we are convinced that only by subjecting our products to real-world conditions, such as the ones you will experience on your bike, can we continuously improve them.
A product's environmental impact is calculated for its entire lifecycle using various indicators. An overall rating (ABCDE) is given, allowing you to easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (T-shirts, pants, backpacks etc.). Decathlon openly displays the environmental ratings of its products. To find out more: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
