Men’s black gilet

Great gilet, well made and good value

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

I've been looking for a down sleeveless jacket for a little while and was shocked by how expensive they were until I found this one. It's very light, very warm and comes with its own stuff bag. Make sure it fits snugly so no cold air gets between it and your other clothes and you'll be toasty. If the stuff bag was 1/3 smaller it would help pack it in smaller spaces, but it's hardly a show-stopper. Superb value for money.

having visited the Coventry store ,they ordered me one of these from another store , it is sold out online in most sizes ,I have to say i was sceptical it would appear - 2 days later it was instore the helpful assistant had tried another size on ,we agreed that they are a bit on the smaller size - pleased with the quality and definately with the service !

Excellent value purchase

Astonishing value

I normally buy Large - but went for Xtra Large for this purchase. This was a happy choice 'cos the sizes are a little smaller that normal

Awesome gilet!

Really comfy, warm and lightweight. Looks great... Best gilet I own!

Good, but not perfect

Ideal for keeping in my backpack for extra later of warmth to the body. Packs down so small and in own stuff bag. Only fault is the opening for the arms is elasticated and slightly too tight, making it ever so slightly uncomfortable in that area.

Inflating power of down/feather filling

This 85/15 padded gilet has a guaranteed minimum fill power of 660 CUIN. The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. Down with higher fill power (the higher the CUIN) takes up more space, trapping more air and providing greater thermal insulation.

The advantages of duck down and feather filling*

The long-term fill power of the down gives it the following 3 qualities needed for hiking: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and the feathers - Ultra-lightweight: down is lighter than synthetic padding while offering the same degree of warmth. This helps to further lighten the load in your backpack - Ultra compressibility * Our feathers come from Chinese ducks bred for their meat. We obtain the feathers after slaughter. We hold the death certificates for the ducks

Care advice for a gilet filled with down and feathers

The gilet can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow our advice by clicking on the link below: How to wash and dry your down jacket

The advantages of a gilet

A gilet helps to keep the body warm: it protects the chest, neck and lower back from the cold, as these areas are especially sensitive to the cold. Because it is sleeveless, it saves weight in the backpack and is even more breathable when making a physical effort and is extremely comfortable in movement when worn under a jacket. The sleeveless gilet is therefore especially appreciated during the physical exertion of a hike.

A note to compare the environmental impact of the products

The environmental impacts of the product are calculated over its entire life cycle and with the variety of indicators. An overall ABCDE score is allocated to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental information. For more information:



Product testing

All our gilets are laboratory tested with 3 mph wind, worn as a 2nd layer on a thermal mannequin (over a long sleeved t-shirt). Their level of thermal insulation is measured on a scale of 1 to 5, enabling you to make the choice that best fits your use. When worn under an X Warm down jacket, you will gain a 16°F temperature rise.

Storage instructions

Store on a hanger in a clean and dry place

Care instructions

Looking after a sleeveless down gilet requires special attention. We recommend having your gilet dry cleaned. Washing: Machine washable at 86°F; add 2 tennis balls to ventilate the down. Rinse twice. Tumble drying highly recommended: synthetics cycle with 3 tennis balls to ventilate the down; put the jacket through several cycles until the down has dried completely, otherwise it may clump, losing insulating power. See the care instructions in the online guide
