High down/feather fill power
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 takes up more space, trapping more air and providing greater thermal insulation.
The advantages of 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: down is lighter than synthetic padding while offering the same degree of warmth. Which makes your backpack lighter
Care instructions for jackets containing down and feathers
The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow our advice by clicking on the link below:
In case of rain
This down jacket fabric is water-repellent. It allows drops of water to roll over the fabric, which means it takes longer for water to penetrate the jacket, giving you time to get to shelter. But the jacket is not waterproof. We therefore recommend that you wear a waterproof jacket over your down jacket in case of prolonged exposure to rain.
A score to compare the products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators.
An overall score of ABCDE is calculated to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.).
For Decathlon, this initiative to display environmental data is a priority.
For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
All our down jackets have been tested in laboratory conditions on a thermal manikin under 3 mph wind conditions, representing a moderately strenuous hike. You can therefore compare their thermal insulation qualities, on a scale of 1 to 5, and choose the jacket best suited to your needs.

Store on a hanger in a clean and dry place
Great care must be taken when cleaning a down jacket. We recommend that you take it to a dry cleaner. Machine wash at 86°F; add 2 tennis balls to ventilate the down. Rinse twice. Tumble drying highly recommended: synthetic program with 3 tennis balls to ventilate the down; repeat the cycle several times until the down is completely dry, otherwise it will form clumps and lose its insulating properties.
