warm and lightweight

I've never had a down coat before. this is my first. I'm really happy with it. I haven't used it hiking or camping yet, but I've warn it in some cold weather. Specifically waiting to pick up my kid at school. The other parents looked really cold. i was nice and warm. My only down side (pun intended) is that when i sit in a chair in the cold, since the down gets compressed, my back is cold. there's no isupation when the insulation is flattened. i don't know if this is a common thing with down jackets, but it's an issue with this one. Makes me feel the need to use a pad on my back when I sit in a chair.

Superior warmth; great price!

In order to test the effectiveness of a winter jacket I always test with only a thin t-shirt underneath. This enables me to test its effectiveness without the additional effect of layering. Today was 37 degrees with 10-15mph sustained winds. I sat on a hillside with no windbreaks for 30 minutes. (I want to know if a jacket will keep me warm with no physical activity.) This jacket provided superior warmth! I never had to put on the hood which would’ve made me even warmer. It’s definitely a winter coat and it would be too much coat for a warmer temp day. The fabric is very lightweight (which is why I purchased it) and I wouldn’t wear this coat while trekking through a wooded area where it might snag and tear. It would be perfect once you’ve arrived at camp. It would also make a great jacket for a cold winter walk or watching an outdoor winter sporting event where you are sitting and need to stay warm. This jacket is a great deal at this price point! (I own winter jackets at double this price point.). I highly recommend it!

very warm

Very warm down jacket, with good cuffs and hood. Quite stylish colour and design.

Comfortable and warm

The jacket hit the right note for the beginning of July - entering mid-winter and those low teens degC. I'd purchased on line (and collected as 'contact-less pickup) but it proved to be too small and, as soon as lockdown was finished, I popped down to my local shop and exchanged it for the large size. That was better - proper arm length, stretch across the shoulders and plenty below the waist. No issue with changing. I've used it for outside in the air-type activities - walking, etc. it's simply too hot inside the jacket if you're inside the car or the mall. It will push down into a small plastic shopping bag for handling in the car, etc. Otherwise it's full-size and may get damaged if simply hanging around. Equally as good it came with 50% discount.

Punches well above its weight

Would expect to pay 3-4 times as much for an equivalent jacket from a big name brand or cottage manufacturer. So happy with this purchase.

One Flaw

Great jacket if you are looking for a stylish, warm layer to wear during the shoulder seasons. However I would keep it that, as a stylish jacket. Wear it around town, but not to the mountains where there are trees with branches. The material isn't all that durable, and snags very easily. Not for technical use.

Mountain Trekking Down Jacket

We bought these jackets on the recommendation of a Canadian outdoor person. We have used them for over a month now during the previous colder weather in Mancheter. The jackets are warm with a good fit and well made with excellent zips and reinforced wear areas. They are exceptionally good for the price. We also have jackets from Rab & Mountain Hardware to compare.

Worth a look

Perhaps not finished as well as other brands. Will have to see what the longevity is. But this jacket is warm as toast. Does everything I want it to do. Very good

Amazing must have gear! (Warning at bottom)

Absolutely love this jacket . The hood adjustments don't use the normal toggle they sort of slot into the hood itself, that then holds them in place securely which is a great idea . Sat outside in light rain in -2 Celsius as was dry and toasty and walked home in slightly heavy rain with zero down clumping . It doesn't have rear head adjustments but the peak can be rolled up and it stays in place . Fantastic gear! Can't recommend this enough Heads up tho . I put the jacket inside out in my drier with tennis balls (do this with all my down jackets on low heat low spin) because one arm of the down arrived clumpy . When i pulled it out the inside has melted i suspect because this is such a lightweight item. Absolutely gutted especially with having no money at the moment and only had it about a week . Just hope the melted part holds up because i can't afford to buy another .

Excellent value coat

Great value, well made coat.

Very comfortable and warm

The jacket this well constructed with nice attention to detail; stitched lip around neck to prevent drafts, insulated storm flap behind main zip. Putting the jacket on instantly provides significant increase in warmth. While in light rain water will bead and run off the material, I would recommend getting a size suitable to put under an outer water proof shell, as opposed to having a larger fit that goes over all layers. The down in the jacket should be kept dry, and I would want this layer to be protected from the weather as when static in cold weather it will provide the bulk of my heat retention. Sizing is accurate, but I did drop from an XL to an L in order to fit this jacket under an outer water proof.

How warm is this padded jacket?

This down jacket, worn as a 3rd layer, has been certified for an active comfort temperature of 0°F during a standardized test in a thermal chamber. The model is wearing a synthetic long sleeve T-shirt and a light fleece underneath. It works in simulated 3 mph wind. We have also tested this model in "static" mode; The comfort temperature is 23°F in this case.

The advantages of a duck down and feather fill

The fill power of down has 3 advantages for mountain sports: - Thermal insulation provided by the air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra low weight: Down is lighter than synthetic fill while offering the same degree of warmth. This saves even more weight in your backpack - Ultra-compressible

How to measure the fill power of a down and feather fill

The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. It is expressed in cuin (cubic inches). So, down with a higher fill power (higher cuin number) will occupy more space, trap more air, and provide greater thermal insulation. For this down jacket with its 85% down/15% feather fill, the fill power is guaranteed to be 660 cuin or more (European standard).

What is rds certification?

RDS or “Responsible Down Standard” is a worldwide certification issued by an independent organization to volunteer brands. This standard enables us to guarantee the origin of the feathers in accordance with our commitment to use responsible materials. Our suppliers are committed to sourcing down humanely, using plumage from waterfowl that have undergone no undue harm. To find out more:

How to care for a down jacket

The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow our guidance by copying the link below: In summary: 1/ machine wash, 86°F, with 2 or 3 tennis balls. Gentle spin cycle. 2/ tumble dry with 2 or 3 tennis balls, and repeat 2 or 3 times until it is completely dry.

Water-repellent property of component (not to be confused with waterproofing)

The water-repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from swelling and keeps it lightweight and warm. The material of this down jacket is water-repellent; We recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over it in the event of prolonged exposure to rain. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface; however, this property may deteriorate with use. We recommend that you restore it after each wash.

How to restore water-repellent properties

Once you have cleaned your padded jacket, we recommend you use a water-repellent reactivator spray to preserve the hydrophobic properties of the outer fabric

How to repair your padded jacket

A tear on a padded jacket can happen when backpacking! The good news is that it can be repaired and you can prevent the tear from getting bigger or feathers from coming out. Don't feel at ease carrying out this repair yourself? Don't worry! Our in-store Decathlon workshops offer a repair service to mend your padded jacket using a heat-bonded patch.

Reducing the risk of feather loss

The main stitching of the compartments containing the down and feathers are heat-sealed to prevent the loss of feathers
