Perfect for fast hiking

Great lightweight jacket which stops the wind, has good ventilation and folds into a tiny pouch for carrying. I've taken it out a few times and it's exactly what I needed. I hike very fast and find myself overheating with all but the lightest layers of clothing. This is perfect for me and I'm very glad I bought it.

Great value, hardwearing

Great value compared to big brands. Love the pit vents. I would be more than happy to pay extra for basic thumb loops and a small cord adjust in the hood, which is too big and flappy to be of any practical use when running.

Excellent value

I've been looking for a windproof to replace my big brand one I sold a while back but I wasn't prepared to spend the £60-£80 on a new one. This Helium windproof is not as full featured and well-designed as my far more expensive old one but to be frank, it really doesn't matter for what I use it for. Windproofs are one of those bits of kit you don't know how useful they are until you get one. I go backpacking and when up on the hills, a windproof really comes in handy. Windchill is a massive factor in outdoors pursuits but waterproof shells, whilst being excellent wind-blockers, trap sweat and you get damping and steamy no matter how good your "breathable" fabric is. Windproofs are just finely woven polyester and so sweat can easily get through. So can rain so they do spray them with a water-repellent but this only holds off light showers for a short time - they are not waterproof. What they do well is to massively reduce windchill without adding insulation or sweatiness. If you wear one over a baselayer you can keep just warm without getting too hot and if you wear it over a fleece, the insulation value of the fleece improves dramatically. Overall, they allow you to ajust your temperature much better than the standard 3 layer system. I don't need it to have a full mountain hood or adjustable cuffs etc - if the weather is getting that bad, it's waterproof time. So this one fits the bill. It's super light and packable. It will see off a short, light shower and does the job of stopping the wind just fine. The downside is that it's not the toughest item around. The fabric is necessarily thin, the zip isn't robust and there are extra ventliation holes under the arms which, whilst welcome, are just punched through the fabric with no reinforcement. So it needs treating a bit carefully. I'd definitely recommend this item.

very good for people and my body

fantastic product

excellent value for money! super lightweight and packable this brilliant wind jacket protected me from the sun and wind during spring hikes in Greek mountain trails. The price is unbelievable as most big brand wind jackets i looked up online in this lightweight range were around 8 times the price of thid.. I'll get a second one!

Mixed Bag

This could be perfect, but it isnt. my nearest decathlon is 170m round trip. As I know my sizes, I often buy mail order. Pros: material, quality of manufacture, zips, armpit breathing, weight. almost everything. Cons: stuff sack should be built in, the product is windproof, a small stuff sack on a windy day...probably going to get lost. This is the second walking decathlon jacket I've had, the other a more substantial one. Both are very loose round the neck with way too large hoods. It's a windproof jacket! but won't windproof the neck, and a stiff wind will blow off the hood - elastic way way too loose. Many similar jackets have no hood, so it's better than nothing. If you don't need a hood, it's still great and cheap. If I had tried this at the store, I wouldn't have bought it, but for this price, I decided to keep it and it works ok, with a buff type product on the neck to plug the gap it leaves.

wrong label

I thought this jacket is supposed to be windproof, but there are holes for ventilation in the front. It's more of sun-proof than wind-proof. Please correct your label so customers won't be misled.

just right in the summer

excellent for protection from wind and rain in the summer

Product is good, but Zip Quality is not good

Product is good, but Zip Quality is not good.

The best product for Summer

I brought this jacket from Hennur road, Bangalore shop 4 months ago. This is the best jacket can use for bike riding for Summer season. Quality is awesome.

Excellent product.I use it everyday riding to work

Lightweight yet breathable via small holes. Does not stick to the body due to sweat. Looks very nice. Most importantly - its very compact for storage. You can have it in your backpack & not remember.

Trust issue

I used this a few times during riding my bike near my locality for small distance at low speed and it just felt like I wore nothing. I mean wearing this jacket is equals to not wearing this jacket at all. It doesn't protect from wind even at low speed. Don't know how this will protect in the mountains and trance himalayas where wind speed is high and chilled. In description on the website shows this jacket provides protection against UPF 50 and on the tag (the one tied with the jacket) it is UPF 40+. What does it mean?did I just waisted my money? I ordered a down jacket too from your website and now I'm worried.

Hello Gurprit,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us regarding the windcheater. We regret to inform you that this jacket is not recommended for bike riding, and we would like to apologise for not being able to advise you on the product. This ultra-compact lightweight jacket is designed for fast hiking in the mountains where you need light gears. It protects you from wind-chill as well as provides UV protection(UPF 50)

Kindly visit any of our stores or write to care.india@decathlon.com for an exchange or refund. Give us another chance to regain your trust:)

Comfortably warm and windproof

Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold! With an outside temperature of 32°F and 12mph winds, it will feel like the temperature is 14°F. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.

Water-repellency of the component (different to waterproofing)

A fabric is water repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes).

Component breathability

To find out if a fabric is breathable, its total evaporation resistance RET (test based on ISO 11092), is measured. The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability.For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 920 = little or no breathability.

Breathability of the garment

In addition to breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zippers, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its backpacking jackets and overpants designed for great hiking use (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems allow both temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.
