Nice light jacket

So far performed as hoped. Hood on the large side for me is my only complaint.

Good choice.

I’m a bigger build and often find Decathalon sizes on the meagre side. This time I was pleased to find the sizing was pretty generous. I wanted a very light waterproof layer. This product exactly met my requirements and is comfortable to wear, even with bare arms. I found my jacket on the sale rail so I’m a very happy lad. (Works a treat in the rain, by the way. )

Fantastic running jacket

First run out was in brutal weather at the Alps Tour du Fiz 8. The jacket is super light, compact, highly visible and was completely waterproof.

Good Jacket

It's a good, lightweight, windproof jacket - does what it's supposed to do. But it's just a single layer, so don't expect any warmth. Sizing also fairly tight for nominal size if you have to buy by mail order.

Functional but no great shakes

It is just a basic polyester jacket with minimum trims. It is functional and can find it cheaper in other brands. Platic Zipper quality is a let-down.


cool design and color

Hi Balaji,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the FH500 Hemlium Rain Men's Waterproof Hiking Jacket in Blue. We are sorry to hear that the product did not meet you expectations.

This product is designed with 2.5 layers: the membrane has inner protection with a kind of varnish coating rather than an actual layer to make it as lightweight as possible as well as a drawcord at the bottom of the jacket in order to tighten and reinforce the jacket durability for water repellence.

Your reviews and feedback on the product are important to us as it will allow us to improve our products for a better user experience, hence, feel free to leave a review on other Decathlon products and we hope to see you in our stores soon.


Rain coat

Good Light raincoat but should have side pockets as the price is expensive for $80. Use it more for raining day.

Not completely waterproof

I like the design, the colour and the side pockets for aeration. I also like how well it shields the face and head. However, it constantly gets wet at the sleeve area. I tried it cycling and also just walking, i still get water inside through the sleeve. It's quite disappointing for a product of this price.

Hi Ange!

Леко и компактно. Отлично за топло време.

Закупих якето с цел да получа компактност и лекота при преходите в топло време. Надявах се да ми служи и като ветровка. Якето е наистина леко и много компактно - може да го съберете в джоба на панталона :-) Пробвах го 2-3 пъти в лек дъжд и толкова пъти в сериозен . При тежките дъждове имаше овлажняване от вътрешната страна (видимо влажна мембрана), но нямаше пропускане. Но ако дъжда е продължителен и температурата падне и под якето е само тениска, става студено. Затова при по-тежките дъждове слагах лек полар под якето и всичко беше наред - без студ и мокро. Якето върши работа и при вятър, ако не е прекалено силен. При силен вятър и когато температурите паднат, ако сте само с тениска и якето, става студено. Недостатъци: - няма странични дожобове. Може да разчитате само на един джоб на гърдите; - страничните отвори за проветрение са ниско и не може да се осъществи добра винтелация точно под мишниците. Имам намерение да нося якето и през зимните месеци, защото често ми се е случвало да имам необходимост от нещо леко над вторият слой (като втори слой използвам полар), в случай на малки и краткотрайни климатични промени, а не всеки път да вадя зимното яке, което е предназнаено за по-ниски температури и по-силен вятър. Като цяло продукта е много добър. Бих го оценил между 4 и 5 звезди, но цената определено наклони везната към 5 звезди :-)

Neplní deklarovanou nepromokavost

Bundu bych velmi rád hodnotil kladně, jelikož je lehká a skladná, nicméně její nepromokavost trvala velmi krátkou dobu a to po jednu sezonu. Nyní již pozoruji zatékání na švech rukávu a to i při relativně slabém dešti.

Dobrý den, Josefe,

velice děkujeme za Váš čas věnovaný recenzi tohoto produktu. Každá zkušenost je velmi cenná a pomáhá nám s vývojem nových modelů.

Je nám líto, že kvalita produktu neodpovídá Vašim požadavkům. Z toho, co popisujete, se domníváme, že by se mohlo jednat o vadný kus. Ráda bych Vás proto pozvala na Vaši nejbližší prodejnu Decathlon, kde můžete produkt reklamovat.

Omlouváme se za komplikace.

S láskou ke sportu

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic

Sizing and fit information

Slim fit. The jacket's inner volume allows you to wear it over a thin, light second layer, such as a light down or fleece garment.


When attached, height and depth are adjustable with elastic drawcord and toggles. Stiff visor for maximum face protection.


1 zipper-fastening chest pocket that the jacket can be folded into.

Jacket hem drawstring

Elastic drawcords and toggles.

Main component

Ultra-light, 2.5-layer membrane fabric.

The component's waterproof properties

This garment was approved in a shower test in 26 gallons of water/sqm/hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains.

Component breathability

Aside from the breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zippers, air holes, mesh) to improve overall ventilation. These ventilation systems allow temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.

Component with coating or a membrane

Like a layer of "paint" applied on the underside of the fabric to make it waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less costly than a membrane and requires a lining for protection. The membrane is like a very fine plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being more supple, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than the coating. Jacket with a membrane.

Component 3 layers, 2 layers or 2.5 layers

3 layers: the membrane is bonded to an inner and outer layer of the component. This construction helps the membrane last longer and boosts the component's performance. 2 layers: the membrane is only bonded to the outer fabric; the inner protective lining is free. This construction costs less but is generally more cumbersome. 2.5 layers: the membrane has inner protection with a kind of varnish coating rather than an actual layer to make it as lightweight as possible.

Water-repellent properties of the component

A fabric's water-repellent property is its capacity to repel water, allowing it to slide over the fabric's surface. This prevents the fabric from swelling and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric becomes water-repellent when a treatment is applied to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every 3 washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.

Product environmental impact comparison score

An overall rating of ABCDE is provided to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance.
