Hybrid jacket

Exactly what I needed underneath my ski shell jacket, keeping me nice and warm. Great close fit too. Received good comments from mates who thought it was from a much more expensive brand!

Superb top for active use in the UK

I'm a big fan of this type of top. Windproof, keeps out most of the rain but also very breathable, so it's great for running and cycling. Stretch panels make it comfortable but I'd agree with others that you should try it on to get the best fit. Longish length is great for cycling and for staying tucked into a climbing harness. Tempted to buy another in case Decathlon stop making it.

Tested as a cold weather cycling jacket

I have been using this top as a cycling jacket, rather than for cross-country skiing. However, I think the comments apply equally. I would normally take a size medium, but the sleeves were too short, so I took a size large instead, which has longer sleeves, but they are still about 2cm shorter than ideal. This jacket needs a longer cuff on the sleeve. The style of cuff used in the B Twin 500 cycling jacket would be perfect for this jacket. The small chest pocket takes a smart phone, but the zip pull is too small to easily handle when wearing gloves. It would be nice to have an internal pocket as well. The jacket is warm and coped well with energetic cycling at 5 degrees C, without overheating, when wearing a short-sleeved baselayer underneath. However, when standing or when stationary, the lack of insulation around the lower back is noticeable. If you were wearing a rucksack, I think this would be fine, but without a back pack, there is a need for more insulation in this area. The insulation and windproofing at the front of the jacket is excellent. The fit is generally very good, although the arms are a little short (this is a general problem with Decathlon active clothing). The choice of materials is innovative and the quality/price ration is excellent. There is nothing even approaching this quality of jacket in this price range. Overall I would say that this is a well-designed jacket with a few minor fit issues. With some minor development, this could be an excellent mountain biking, cycle adventure or winter cycling jacket as well as a cross-country ski jacket. I've not tested it in heavy rain, but it performed well over half an hour of light rain as a walking jacket.

availability of stock

Having read a number of reviews , I have been searching your website in a bid to purchase a few items of Quechua clothing. Unfortunately the size I am looking for ( XL) is not readily available . Is there a reason why your stocks appear to be so limited ?

Excellent for winter activities or as a mid layer

Saw this in store and ordered online to get my size as it is a snug fit. This is an excellent top for cross country skiing, winter biking or just as a warm mid layer when walking the dog. It has a thin stretch back panel which allows heat to vent so it is particularly good when wearing a rucksack. Also the rubber grip around the hem stops the top riding up at the back which is a nice touch. This is fast becoming my go to warm layer for all sorts of occasions.

Great product

I bought large, which is an ‘athletic’ fit ie quite tight fitting for a large, but I really liked this. The only thing I would add are thumb loops. Would have had five stars if these were in place

Fleece component: insulation thanks to air

The fleece component is designed to trap air thanks to the space created by its texture; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. The brushing of the knit fabric is what traps the air.

Thermal comfort and windproof

The wind makes the perceived temperature drop considerably. With an outside temperature of 32°F and 12 mph 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.

Sizing information

Fitted style: Very fitted cut and spandex composition for great comfort in use. Select your usual size or 1 size larger if you prefer looser clothing.

Component test:

Resistance to wear and rubbing test: for example, we verify that the fleece does not pill using tests conducted in the laboratory. Colorfastness test: the colorfastness is verified to ensure that the colors do not bleed. Aging test: repeated washing must not alter the fabric's original properties, including its shape, thickness or appearance.

How to dress properly for snow hiking?

To dress correctly in the winter, no matter what your activity is, we recommend that you apply the 3 layer principle: layer 1: The technical base layer will enable damp to be wicked away to keep skin dry. layer 2: The second layer (fleece, pullover) provides warmth and wicks away the damp. layer 3: The jacket protects you from outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind. The outfit must be breathable to wick away damp.

How does my product warranty work?

This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the sales receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.

What is the environmental impact of the products and how can i compare them?

The product's environmental footprint is calculated over its entire lifespan using various indicators. A score is assigned, from A to E, to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other. Decathlon is committed to this approach. Find all our sustainable initiatives at



Product testing

We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: - a test of the material of our fleeces. - a thermal mannequin test in a thermal chamber. Here, we reproduce the conditions of temperature, wind (3 mph) and humidity that you encounter in the mountains when walking at 3 mph. These tests help us validate our design choices and thus adapt the thermal insulation where you need it most.

Storage instructions

Store in a dark, dry place. We advise you to avoid chemicals, such as bleach, which could adversely affect the thermal insulation of clothing.
