The ventilation units work great hence i have been touring with this on my bike. Great product.
Good alternative to the major brands
This jacket is pretty good it kept me really warm in the snow and it’s comfy aswell so why not buy it
Works great in keeping the wind out. Though I wouldn't wear it without putting on something warmer underneath as it blocks out the wind but isn't suitable for temperatures under 15°C
I am using it for the last four weeks and have found the product excellent. I mainly use it for commuting on my bike. It's winter time and this jacket has helped me in keeping off the cold wind while riding. Also, there are 3 zipped pockets and 2 meshed pockets to keep your belongings safe. In short, it's worth the money spent for.
I have got few this softshells during 6 years period. It was a brilliant design. Windproof and warm but yes unfortunately but. Everything has been changed. The new design have a ventilation under arms and this is a weak point. In the result the new version of this softshell is not comfortable on cold days. Please do something with that (remove this ventilation! use the same softshell material!), because a lot of people stop buy it.
Even with layers underneath I am freezing in this jacket. It's no better than a cagoule. In fact, it's worse - at least a cagoule keeps heat inside once you warm up. It looks nice, fits perfectly, and is comfortable, but I am cold!
Stylish and practical
I have bought this jacket with lot of excitement. it does not perform as mentioned as i wore this jacket in 2 degree. I required one thermal inside it to survive comfortably. The most worst part about it is cloths under arms started bubling it really looks like 2 years old jacket really not expected from jacket which cost 3499 in India.
Thanks for your valuable time to review the Windwarm 500 jacket by Quechua. I am sorry that the product did not fulfill your expectations.
To give you a small insight on softshells, they are best solution for protection from the wind and not ideal for warmth. A fleece or a down jacket will be a good answer. The Windwarm 500 is good for protection from wind on high altitudes. If you are looking for a softshell which can keep you really warm, I request you to kindly consider - http://bit.ly/2LMTw8s , the front part of the jacket is polyfill for better warmth. If you can explain me your exact usage, I would be glad to recommend you the right product as per your need. Also for the issue of piling, this usually happens when we sleep wearing the jacket as there is higher abrasion, can you let me know if your case was different? This will allow us to take up the issue with the concerned teams to ensure our users in future do not face any issue. Meanwhile, I apologise again for the inconvenience and request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and get this product exchanged.
I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.
One person mentioned this but I reiterate that this jacket performs poorly in the wind especially the grey patch under the arm which is considerably large area. Don't understand why it is needed if it already has the open vent zip. However, I love the clean and slim cut and definitely 5/5 for smart styling but as a jacket - maybe indoor only. Also confusing labeling as Trek 900 or Windwarm 500 on the receipt.....
Jacket is good but all the pockets have net and not any warm cloth. So you can not use the pockets for seeking warmth for hands. Cold Air keep passing through the hands.
I spent weeks looking for a proper softshell - visited a lot of outdoor clothing stores and online retailers - I chose Decathlon product. Purpose: mid-layer underneath a waterproof jacket or as a cover layer for dry conditions. Destination: Iceland hiking adventure. Time: May. After experiencing a week of extreme winds & occasional light showers across North-West & South Iceland I can confidently say that I have been amazed that for £40 you can get such a good quality product (especially compared to much, much more expensive high-end brands). It's very comfortable, soft, fits perfect (I am slim-build), ventilation zips worked really well, reasonably sized pockets. Wearing a base layer, mid-layer and this softshell both myself and my friend (who purchased the same product) felt very comfortable when hiking around fjords. My only little concern after more than 6 months of using it is an armpit material bobbling a little bit - I appreciate that it's a different fabric to allow freedom of movements. It has no influence on my final rating though. Overall: great design, fantastic quality for the price, useful pockets, great wind protection, water repellent (I treated it with waterproofing spray - good for the UK weather).
Brilliant piece of kit, warm dry and fairly cheap
I bought this my partner for his birthday and he loved it, unfortunately a seam near the zip up pocket on the chest has burst so we need to return it to the shop. It is a great coat though.

Quite a close-fitting cut. The jacket's inner volume allows you to wear it over a thin second layer such as a micro-fleece.
2 hand pockets + 1 chest pocket with zipper fastener.
Wind decreases the perceived temperature considerably. With an outside temperature of 32°F and a 12 mph wind, the perceived temperature will be 14°F. The so-called "windproof" components eliminate the discomfort associated with the "wind chill" effect. They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
Elastic draw-strings and toggles.
The main fabric used throughout the jacket, except at the sides, has a wind proof membrane with a breathability of 6.2 lbs/m2 per 24 hrs (according to the JIS 1099 A standard).
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface. However, this property may deteriorate with use. In order to reactivate it, follow the guide: https://www.quechua.fr/conseils/comment-reactiver-la-deperlance-de-sa-veste-a_86425
Waterproofing spray for leather and textiles. https://www.decathlon.fr/bombe-re-impermeabilisant-id_5954981.html Regenerates the water repellency of the fabric and optimizes the performance of your garment throughout its lifespan.
