Great Vest

Very warm and very light. Packs down to nothing to put in my golf bag. It's much better than expected. You'll definitely need to go up a size.

Very warm

Great price/Great product

Great value and quality except for zipper

Shell and down are great quality. The zipper works after you get it started. I have had a difficult time getting the zipper started.

Frick'n Wicked!

Are you kidding me? Stupidly light weight, warmth of down, wind resistant...all for 60 bucks? Mic drop. P.S. My new best friend for dog walking and cross-country skiing on those cold winter days in Ottawa/Gatineau :)

Brilliant light body warmer.

Really light weight item. Very warm over a fleece mid layer. Useful zipped pockets take a big wallet and XL sized phone with ease. Folds down to a tiny pack size when the weather warms up.

Excellent quality for the price

Bought size medium and size large for my husband, he was a little disappointed that the large was the better fit; but to be fair he is probably somewhere between the two sizes. This is similar quality to another lightweight gilet I looked at which was double the price. It’s been worn almost every day since Christmas so a great success. I was able to return the other size by post even though I bought in store, very quick and easy process once I’d emailed customer services.

Unbelievably good

I would not usually waste time providing a review but feel compelled to share that this garment is excellent in quality and fit so represents unbelievable value. You can buy this and the jacket version for less than what you would pay for one down jacket alone from the most competitive brands yet it is 100 per cent comparable to them. Also impressive is that it is Responsible Down Certified. Extremely chuffed with it and want to wear it all the time. Btw, I am a slim 5"10 with a 30 inch waist and medium sizes as snugly as if it were fitted (so if you're prone to adding a few pounds over winter you may wish to size up).

Well fitted but quite shiny

I’m 6ft 4, slim and ordered Large. Top quality gilet, comparable with some high end brands in fact. Lengthwise it’s acceptable. Not too short but would have enjoyed another inch or so for complete satisfaction. Chest is to size, but the material (navy) is quite shiny. Doesn’t bother me too much but it didn’t look like that in picture do loses a star.

excellent value

I was ready to spend the money on a RAB until I watched a review on youtube, they compared this to a Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer which is considered the Number 1 ...both this one and the Whisperer dont have a breast pocket or any internal pockets which is why I didnt give it a 5*, the warmth fit and quality are very good for the price. this was my first time ordering from these people and the service and speed was 5* .. I will shop here again ... NB: im normally a xl but ordered a xxl .... perhaps I am getting bigger :(

Good gilet but sized a bit tight

This is a good gilet, especially considering the price, but the size is on the small size. A tight fit helps the heat stay close to the body.

Sleeveless gilet

Warm. Fits great and dual purpose, sport/ walking and casual.

Great price for a good quality product.

Really pleased with this. Sensible pockets and fit, I'm slim but sized up to XL (L in other brands), didn't need to in the end. It's a good length where other gilets are quite short. Warm for the weight and robust fabric, I've worn it climbing under my harness. Only downside - the material is a bit shiny but appears matte in the images... not the end of the world but I prefer matte.

Additional Product Information

Composition

Padding

  • 10% Grey duck feather
  • 90% Grey duck down

Main lining

  • 100% Polyamide

Main fabric

  • 100% Polyamide

Padding - Inner fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic

Feather origin

Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers, which are sourced in accordance with our responsible material commitments. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are bred for their meat and are plucked after slaughtering. http://developpement-durable.decathlon.com/documents-et-rapports/documents/

Fill power of the down/feather filling

This 85% down / 15% feather down gilet has a guaranteed fill power of 800 CUIN. The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" a certain volume of air. Down with higher fill power (a higher CUIN number) takes up more space, trapping more air and providing greater thermal insulation.

Weight of the filling

XS: 2.6 oz S: 2.8 oz M: 3 oz L: 3.2 oz XL: 3.5 oz 2XL: 3.7 oz 3XL: 4 oz

The advantages of a duck down and feather filling*

The down's long-lasting fill power gives it 3 important qualities for hiking: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra-lightweight: with equal warmth, feather is lighter than synthetic padding. This saves even more weight in your backpack - Ultra-compressible

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 the instructions by clicking the link below: How to wash and dry your down jacket
http://www.quechua.com/wash-your-down-jacket

The advantages of a gilet

A gilet keeps 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. Worn underneath the TREK 500 jacket, it can provide 11°F extra warmth when compared to a down jacket worn without gilet.

In the event of rain

This gilet's fabric is water-repellent. It allows drops of water to slide off the fabric, which delays penetration of water into the gilet while you get out of the rain. But the gilet is not waterproof. We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the gilet in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.

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.WORN underneath the TREK 500 jacket, it can provide 11°F extra warmth when compared to a down jacket worn without gilet.
