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


A quality achieved by applying a hydrophobic treatment to the fabric. This process prevents water from sticking to the fabric surface, causing it to "slide" off without soaking in. As a result, the garment remains lightweight, breathable and warm. The effectiveness of the treatment can be restored during the product's lifetime. Use sprays that are applied to the outside, rather than additives used when washing the garment, which can damage the product's breathability.


Wind protection is very important because of significant chill effect that wind can have on body, whether you are active/at rest.According to "windchill" model, which measures how air temperature feels when factoring in wind and cold:at a temperature of 41°F combined with winds of 20 mph, the perceived temperature will be 32°F.If the air temperature is 32°F and wind speed is 20 mph, the perceived temperature will be 21°F.Materials used in our products help to counter the chilling effects of wind

Microporous membrane:

The membrane is a polyurethane layer sandwiched between the softshell jacket's inner and outer fabrics. It protects from the wind and therefore ensures that body heat does not escape. This membrane is also breathable: it wicks away water vapor generated by the body through its microscopic pores to the outside of the garment, preventing moisture build-up and keeping you warm and dry!

A score for comparing products' environmental impact

Decathlon is the first French company to have introduced environmental rating. This rating has been developed with ADEME (Environment and Energy Management Agency) as well as other French companies. It allows products’ environmental impact to be assessed using a scale from A to E, A being the best score.



Product testing

Our design team is based at the foot of the Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are beautiful, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve is to test the products under the real-life conditions that you will experience.
