purchased this jacket the weekend , found the xl to big at 48inch chest , it was like a tent . so tryed the large and the chest on that was 42 inch . i dont know where you get your sizes but a 6 inch different between sizes is pretty dire . will be returning and will shop else where .
Very good waterproofing. Does get a bit warm but ideal for autumn or winter with layering. Looks like a much more expensive jacket. Very satisfied.
I'm size M and ordered a size M but that was far too small so returned for size L but still too small, now waiting for an XL!!. Also the reflective pattern on the jacket is designed for European roads not UK as they are on the wrong side of the jacket (would it have been too much to print reflective pattern on both sides Decathlon especially the arms for signalling????)
Hello. Thank you for leaving a review of the RC500 rain jacket. Sizing can vary from brand to brand, but it's very strange to go have to go up two sizes. Can I ask if you double checked the size guide on the product page? An external review by road.cc for this jacket has come back to say that the sizing is true to the guide. For the location of the reflective strips, this feedback has been sent to the Product Designer to take in to consideration.

La he usado todo el invierno en Galicia con días de mucha agua y me ha sorprendido gratamente. Impermeable y caliente. Una vez seca se limpia muy bien con un cepillo. El único pero el acceso a los bolsillos traseros. Un poco justa la entrada para coger las cosas con comodidad. Los haría con un poco más de bolsa.
Buena chaqueta de ciclismo para dias de poco frio y posibilidad de poca lluvia
Probada como tercera capa en dias de frio (entre 0 y 3 grados) y como segunda entre 5 y 10 grados y no he pasado frio en ningun momento. La membrana es muy transpirable, al quitarla tras marchas de 2-3 horas esta totalmente seca y es bastante mas abrigada de lo que esperaba. Probada un dia bajo un intenso aguacero y lo aguanto muy bien. El faldon retraible que incorpora se agradece mucho en carretera mojada. El bolsillo trasero es muy amplio para meter guantes y manguitos a medida que van sobrando.
une sortie (quand on pouvait encore rouler), satisfait en tous points.
Je ne suis pas acheteur, donc je ne me prononce pas sur la qualité. Par contre je trouve, en particulier pour un vêtement de pluie que les éléments de visibilité sont réduit au strict minimum. Dommage.
Super produit notamment matière. A voir la durabilité dans le temps. Petit bémol sur les bandes réfléchissantes dans le dos pas assez importantes.
Bon produit leger... probleme manches trop longues petit probleme avec fermeture éclair se coince☹
Il s'agit d'un cadeau, le destinataire est plus que ravi.
POur l'instant utilisé pour courir donc heureuse en attente d'être sur le vélo
Attention à la taille
Très bonne veste quand le temps est humide

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. The RC500 jacket's waterproofing stats: 8,000 mm before washing, 5,000 mm after 5 washes.
It's not just the fabric that's important for the product's waterproofing; the construction is just as big a deal. The seams on the RC500 are sealed and we have chosen to use the waterproof YKK AquaGuard® zipper.
To determine a fabric's breathability we measure its evaporative resistance or RET (based on standard ISO11092). The lower its resistance, the more it lets water vapor produced by the body escape, therefore the more breathable it is. • RET <6: Extremely breathable, suitable for most intense workouts • RET 6 to 12: Very breathable, designed for moderate exercise • RET 12 to 20: Moderately breathable, not enough for exercise • RET >20: little breathability, unsuitable for exercise
The RC500 jacket's fabric has a membrane. The membrane is a type of very thin micro-perforated plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the fabric both waterproof and breathable. It is also very supple, lighter, more durable and more breathable than a fabric with a coating. A coating is like a layer of paint on the underside of the fabric to make it waterproof. It costs less than a membrane, and requires a lining to protect it.
As you know, if the road is wet, it can be very unpleasant getting your shorts covered in spray from the rear wheel. To solve this problem, we've equipped the RC500 jacket with a retractable flap at the base of the back. It can be discreetly folded into the back of the jacket, and is very practical when needed. It goes without saying that adding a mudguard to the rear of your bike adds even more protection against splashes.
CLASSIC FIT: Fitted and comfortable. This timeless cut is perfect for your longer bike rides, whether in the saddle or having a break. This fit is tighter than our "Relaxed Fit," but not as tight as our "Pro Fit."
Our team of designers and cycling enthusiasts is based in Lille, in northern France, not far from Flanders and its legendary cycling routes. To get this rainproof jacket just right, we tested it all over Flanders throughout the winter: we believe that only by subjecting our products to real world conditions, like the ones you experience on your bike, can we continuously improve them.
