Unfit for purpose

I wore this in the Nevis range in winter conditions with light wind and rain. The jacket is not waterproof. I aas left cold and wet.

Beware of Simond sizing

This review relates to sizing, not the quality of the product which is generally very good for the price. Almost every item of Simond clothing I have ordered has had to be returned and exchanged for a different size. And there is no consistency; sometimes too big, sometimes too small. This particular item was ordered in a medium (based on another jacket already purchased). It was like wearing a tarp. I'm 171cm. Ordered the small, as a replacement and this is too short across the back - it is hunched up to my armpits and the sleeves rise above the wrists when arms are raised (useless for climbing). Yet the stomach area is baggy and the length is like wearing a short skirt.

Hi,


Thanks for taking the time to review our Alpinism Light Jacket. Obviously the sizing and fit of a waterproof jacket are very important for waterproofing, freedom of movement and comfort, so your feedback is very valuable and will be passed on the product development team.


I'm sorry that you were disappointed with this purchase and thanks again for your review,


Regards,

Not worth the money

Had this jacket for less than six months and in no way would I consider it waterproof nor breathable. I called the shop and was told I needed to nikwax it every four weeks including a retreatment to ensure it stays waterproof - it was never waterproof from the beginning and no different after a retreatment of it... did I mention it was less than six months old??

Can't wash after it get dirty

Really bad, after one use in the woods it get dirty of mesh and mud and I could wash it even tried two times. Really disappointed.

Hello Pawel Pieklo,

I'm sorry that the Men's Light Mountaineering Jacket did not meet you expectations. Would you be able give me more detail as to how you tried to wash the jacket and what the results were?

Jackets made for mountaineering are best washed with special liquids such as Nikwax Tech Wash which can be found here:
https://www.decathlon.co.uk/tech-wash-300ml-id_8401680.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIuraSgoCP4wIV5grTCh171gMEEAQYAiABEgIpz_D_BwE
You would then need to reproof using a similar product to revitalise the breathability and waterproofing:
https://www.decathlon.co.uk/txdirect-wash-in-300ml-id_8401685.html

This method would give you the best results.

Hope this helps

Simond mountain jacket

Best quality and great price

Mountaineering light jacket.

Comfy. Found jacket to be lacking in breathability, got damp on inside from not too heavy perspiration. Could be better.

Hood not fit for purpose

This is a great attempt at a quality lightweight jacket. Unfortunately the hood doesn’t stand up to any significant level of wind. The goggles that grip the cords for tightening loosen off and you have to keep adjusting them as wind bellows in the hood! Also the hem with the cord on the front blocks your vision if your not wearing a helmet. Smaller hem at front of hood and a more effective lock on the cords would sort the problem and this would be an awesome jacket for the price! Will have to return.

Hello Niall,

Thank you for reviewing the Men's Mountaineering Light Jacket. 

I am sorry to hear that Men's Mountaineering Light Jacket did not meet your expectations in regards to the hood design. The hood is designed to be compatible with a helmet which may account for some of the issues you have encountered. I have passed on your feedback directly to the Brand.

Kind Regards

Voděodolná není

Bundu mam 3 roky, ale není každodenne nošená. Sedí hezky a nosim ji rád. Proti větru je to dobrá ochrana, ale co se vody týká, snese jen mrholení. Mirný déšť a za půl hodiny jste mokří. Kapuce je velmi otravná, pokud nemáte helmu.

Krásně barevná "goráčovka"

Bundu ve velikosti pánské S nosí 14-ti letý syn, vysoký 164cm, velmi štíhlý. Velikost odpovídá-S je na štíhlé hubeňoury. Je výborně zpracovaná, do kapucy se opravdu vejde helma (lyžařská i lezecká), bude dobře fungovat jako zimní skialpová bunda, v létě i v zimě oceňujeme signální barvy. Příjemná je nízká hmotnost, dobře dostupné kapsy, když má člověk batoh a neskutečná je ta cena. Velká spokojenost

Skvela membranovka

Dlouho jsem hledal lehkou membranovou bundu jako treti vrstvu. Pak jsem narazil na toto. S prihlednutim na cenu jsem dosti vahal ale nakonec jsem zkusil. Lehounka membranovka (xl), povedene zipy, vychytavky, neskutecna prodysnost (na membranovou bundu). Puvodne jsem mel vyhlidnutou konkurenci v hodnote okolo 9tis ale tohle me uchvatilo! Rozhodne doporucuji!

Passform?

Die Jacke macht einen guten Eindruck und ist auch leicht stretchig, aber mir passt sie im Bereich Hals/Schultern überhaupt nicht. Das Führt dazu, dass sie im Hals unangenehm drückt/reibt. Die Passform anderer decathlon Jacken finde ich besser, viel besser jedoch sind für mich mit breiten Schultern die Bergans Jacken geschnitten.

Superjacke

Softshell plus diese Jacke darüber und Du hast immer warm, wenn Du Dich bewegst. Ideal für Winterspaziergang, Walking etc.

Zuverlässige und leichte 3-Lagen-Hardshelljacke

Ich nutze diese Jacke seit einigen Jahren für Hochtouren, Bergsteigen und Skitouren und bin sehr zufrieden. Die Jacke kommt immer dann ins Spiel, wenn beim Bergsteigen Auskühlung und Nasswerden durch starken Wind oder Niederschlag verhindert werden soll. Das erledigt die Jacke zuverlässig. Die Atmungsaktivität ist gut, ich schwitze bei normaler Intensität und den bei Wind/Regen üblichen Temperaturen am Berg nicht darunter. Genutzt wird die Jacke immer in Verbindung mit einem Alpinrucksack, Gewicht je nach Tour zwischen 7 bis max. 15kg. Die Jacke ist funktional, robust, atmungsaktiv und hat ein vernünftiges Gewicht und Packmaß. Probleme mit der Haltbarkeit habe ich bisher keine. Das P/L-Verhältnis würde ich deshalb als "sehr gut" bewerten. Der Schntt ist eher weit, was sinnvoll ist, da man solche Jacken erfahrungsgemäß im Zusammenspiel mit einem oder sogar zwei Midlayers nutzt und beim Klettern etc. die Beweglichkeit nicht zu weit eingeschränkt wird. Ich kann zB problemlos einen dünnen Fleecepulli und eine ungefütterte Softshell (Deca Alpinist) darunter ziehen. Die Länge ist in meiner Größe (M bei schlanken 180cm) optimal, d.h. sie deckt das Gesäß und Hüftbereich gut ab. Durch den Zweiwege-RV ist die Verwendung in Kombination mti einem Klettergurt immer möglich. Noch etwas zur Weite der Kapuze: Die Kapuze ist groß, damit sie über einen Helm passt, die Weite lässt sich aber durch den Zug auf der Rückseite der Kapuze mit einem Handgriff in einem sehr weiten Bereich anpassen. Sie sitzt deshalb auch ohne Helm sicher und eng anliegend. Der Nutzer, der in seinem Kommentar die übermäßige Weite der Kapuze beklagt, hat offensichtlich diesen Zug zur Weitenverstellung nicht gefunden ... Insgesamt für mich eine sehr gute Jacke, die abgesehen von Änderungen in der Farbe, nun schon seit einigen Jahren im Programm von Simond/Deca ist. Ich finde es positiv, dass bewährte Produkte wie diese Jacke längerfristig im Sortiment bleiben und nicht im Jahresrhythmus durch ständig neue und nur angeblich "bessere" Modelle ersetzt werden. Das schont Ressourcen. Tatsächlich sehe ich bei dieser Jacke kaum Notwendigkeit für Verbesserungen und würde sie sofort wieder kaufen, wenn mein jetziges Exemplar in ein paar Jahren einmal verschlissen ist.

Hi John,


vielen Dank für deine ausführliche Bewertung.

Wir freuen uns sehr, dich mit der Jacke überzeugen zu können und wünschen dir weiterhin coole Touren damit !


Wir hoffen, dich in Zukunft wieder als Kunde bei uns begrüßen zu dürfen.


Mit sportlichen Grüßen,

David

Additional Product Information

Composition

Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic

Coating

  • 100% Polyurethane
  • 26% Spandex

Coating

  • 100% Polyurethane

Fabric waterproofing

We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure resistance, the more waterproof the fabric. Components with 2,000 mm rating can resist 2,000 mm of water pressure (which is roughly equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours). With waterproofing greater than 10,000 mm, the Mountaineering light jacket offers an extremely high level of waterproofing.

Product's waterproofing

The jacket's waterproof was tested in a rain shower with 26 gallons of water / sqm / hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain downpour.

Fabric breathability

To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporate resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more moisture, generated by an active body, is evaporated, and therefore the higher the fabric's breathability. We consider that if: - RET < 9 = highly breathable fabric - 9 12 = slightly or not breathable fabric The jacket's fabric has a RET of 8

Hood

The jacket's hood size makes it compatible with a mountaineering helmet. Its height and depth are adjustable to suit your needs. A semi-rigid visor offers better forehead and eye protection. The high collar provides protection for the lower part of your face.

Pocket and zipper

Outer shell: 2 large pockets that fasten with taped zippers. The pockets are positioned on chest, making it easier to get access to them when wearing a harness. Inner jacket: 1 zip pocket 2-way front zipper allowing opening from the bottom and a quick access to harness tie-in loop. Zipper pulls for ease of use with gloves.

Product care

Machine wash at 86°F. Use detergent, but not fabric softener. Close zippers and adjust cuffs before putting in machine. Reactive water repellency with adequate treatment after each wash. A whole range of specially made waterproof and breathable fabric care products are available in our Decathlon stores. Making use of these helps to optimize the effectiveness of your garment throughout their lifecycle.

Score to compare the environmental impact of products

The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire lifecycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.).
Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labeling system. To get more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
