The jacket is very useful and really waterproof. Love the stricking color plus all of its features especially the pockets.
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.

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.
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. )
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.
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.
Me la llevé a un trekking por Noruega. Soporto perfectamente condiciones de lluvia y viento. La use sobre un plumas ligero y es muy cómoda. Yo la recomiendo.
La utilizo tanto para ir en bici como por alta montaña. Vale incluso para invernales, porque la ropa de abrigo hay que llevarla por debajo de esta prenda.
Utilizada para mtb. Perfecta
Impermeable de verdad, no pesa nada y ocupa muy poco en la mochila.
He utilizado esta chaqueta en un trail de hora y media con rachas de lluvia fuerte y he llegado totalmente empapado. No se si será de la lluvia o de la baja transpirabilidad. A alguien más le ha pasado?
Es muy ligera y práctica se puede plegar y cabe en cualquier sitio.
Un chubasquero puro y ultraligero no puede permitirse que el agua cale. Además no lo hace por las costuras, que vienen termoselladas, sino por el propio tejido. Lo he estrenado hoy y me he quedado perplejo. Queda genial puesto y no pesa nada, pero no cumple lo mas importante por lo que tengo que devolverlo con mucha pena.

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 drawstring and toggles. Stiff visor for maximum face protection.
1 zipper-fastening chest pocket that the jacket can be folded into.
Elastic drawstrings and toggles.
Ultra-light 2.5-layer membrane fabric.
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.
Aside from the breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zippers, air holes, mesh) to improve overall ventilation. These ventilation systems allow both temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.
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) making 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.
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.
A fabric is water-repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric becomes water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (with every 3 washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifecycle using different indicators. A score ranging from A to E is attributed so that you can easily identify the products with a better environmental performance compared to products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks,...). Decathlon totally backs the environmental labeling approach. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
