Excellent quality jacket

Just a lovely jacket for my 8 year old son. We don't let him climb trees in it to keep it looking nice! It's reasonably warm and water repellant so excellent for weekend walks etc.

Great Jacket

I bought this jacket for my son as he had grown out of his previous one. Its a great lightweight wind breaker and waterproof jacket, and my son loves it. Its a slim fitting jacket though so you couldn't really wear loads of layers underneath, but it looks great, the hood is a good size and when zipped up fully the hood stays up in the wind, Would recommend

Brilliant jacket

A brilliant jacket. He has walked, run, cycled and will take it skiing next year. It is super practical, has lots of useful (secure) pockets, shrugs off showers. His sister now wants one too!

Forclaz 900 Soft-shell Boy's Hiking

Bought this for my 10 yr old son as an inexpensive utility type jacket ...wasn't quite sure what he would wear it for. He has since worn it for a week skiing in France, he wears it every day for school and whenever he wants to look a little bit cool!

Love this jacket, I bought it for my daughter to replace one of the same design in the smaller size. It is warm and well fiting. Keeps her dry in the rain and can cope with being washed in the machine regularly!

My Son loves it

its quite a fitted jacket so wouldn't be able to get a heavy jumper underneath, but it keeps my son warm and dry and he likes to wear it, so result.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 93% Polyester cationic
  • 7% Spandex

Main lining

  • 100% Polyester cationic

Water-repellent properties:

Functionality obtained by applying a hydrophobic treatment to the surface of the fabric. This process prevents water from sticking to the surface of the fabric, "slipping off" without being absorbed. So the garment remains dry, light, breathable and warm. This treatment can be renewed during the life of the product to maintain its effectiveness. Choose sprays to apply to the outside, rather than laundry additives, which may degrade the product's breathability.


It is very important to protect your from the wind, whether moving or stationary, because of the wind's powerful chilling effect. According to the 'Windchill' model, which measures the temperature perceived under the influence of wind and cold: for a temperature of 41°F, combined with a wind- of 20mph, the perceived temperature will be 32°F. If the air temperature is 32°F and the wind speed is 20mph, the perceived temperature will be 21°F. The component of our products helps stop the wind effect

Microporous membrane:

The membrane is a polyurethane layer sandwiched between the softshell jacket's inner and outer fabrics. It protects against the wind and retains the heat produced by the body. This membrane is also breathable: it evacuates the water vapor generated during exercise (thanks to its microscopic pores) toward the outside of the garment. This avoids any form of condensation and the user stays warm and dry.

A score for comparing products' environmental impact

The product's environmental footprint is calculated for its entire life using various indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, rucksacks, etc.) with each other. Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating system. For more information:
