Wife loves it

Excellent very warm

I bought this as I work outside a d needed something very warm over winter. I’d already bought a couple of others for other retailers but none were half the jacket this is! I’ll definitely buy another and highly recommend. A bit bulky but snug and warm!

Small on the sizing

It’s a bit small on the sizing and fits very neat even though I went for a size bigger. Great jacket though and keeps you really warm.

value for money

Daughter found it adequately warm and comfortable for Delhi winter (upto 3℃). Attractive style and perfect size.

Great little jacket

Really great little jacket, perfect for someone who feels the cold a lot (like me), fits well, and is lovely and light. It comes with a little bag to pack it down into, the only thing is I end up putting this in the pocket which I then keep zipped up for fear of losing it. A place to store it within the coat would be amazing. And the addition of an internal pocket would make it faultless, but aside from that I love it.

Warm and packs down small.

Purchased for my teenage daughters trip to New York. She loved the warmth the ability to pack it small and the styling.

Extremely warm jacket

This is a great jacket that rolls up into its own pouch. So light to carry but keeps you extremely warm in cold weather. The high neck and slightly longer back are great too. My only downside is that the pockets are at a funny angle inside but apart from that I definitely would recommend this jacket.

Delighted

I ordered a jacket from a well used supplier but it was a very poor fit. I looked around for a similar product and came across Decathlon which was a new brand to me. I looked through lots of reviews for advice on size, and the jacket I bought is perfect. Superbly lightweight and well made. Only improvement would be an internal phone pocket!!

Excellent Value and Service

I bought this as a late Xmas present for my wife as i live about 40 miles from the nearest store i opted for the 'Collect from Asda' option - expected delivery day was 28/12 so was very surprised to receive text to say it was ready for collection 2 days after ordering. Excellent service. My wife has worn this on a number of occasions whilst out walking and has found it to be lovely and warm. She hasn't tried it in heavy rain but it certainly copes with the typical light drizzle we experience in the UK!!! Would certainly think about purchasing again from Decathlon

Additional Product Information

Composition

Padding

  • 85% Grey duck down
  • 15% Grey duck feather

Lining

  • 100% Polyamide

Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic

What does the rds* certification mean?

Ethical down certified by RDS (Responsible Down Standard). Our traceability system allows us to guarantee the origin of the feathers in accordance with our commitment to use responsible materials. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are bred for their meat and that are plucked after slaughtering. http://sustainability.decathlon.com/media-reports/documents/

Fill power of the down/feather fill

This 85% down / 15% feather down jacket has a guaranteed fill power equal or above 660 CUIN (European standard). The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. So, down with a higher fill power (high CUIN number) will occupy more space, trap more air, and provide greater thermal insulation.

What are the benefits of a duck down and feather fill?

The durability and fill power properties of down give this jacket 3 qualities for hiking: - 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

In case of rain

The material of the quilted jacket is water-repellent. This means that drops of water roll off the fabric preventing them from soaking into the down jacket as quickly, giving you time to find some shelter. But the down jacket is not waterproof. That's why we recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the down jacket in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.

How to wash your feather down jacket

Here are a few tips: Close all the zippers on your down jacket and put it in the washing machine (synthetic cycle at 86°F). In order to preserve the fill power and warmth, you can even put 2 tennis balls in the machine NB: Set a gentle spin cycle because a fast spin cycle may create balls of feathers that are difficult to break up. Follow our advice by clicking the link below: https://www.forclaz.co.uk/advice-alias/how-should-i-look-after-my-down-jacket-tp_2579

How to dry your down jacket

When you take your down jacket out of the washing machine, it will seem as if the down has gone. THE TUMBLE DRYER is the best way to restore the fill power of feathers. Put your down jacket in the tumble dryer with 2 tennis balls. Run 2-3 drying cycles. If you do not have a tumble dryer, you can completely dry your down jacket on a drying rack by turning it over and tapping regularly. https://www.forclaz.fr/conseils/comment-entretenir-sa-doudoune-en-plumes-tp_101

How to restore the water-repellent properties

Over time, after washing and the wear and tear during use, the water-repellent treatment becomes less effective. This is how to re-activate the water-repellent feature of your down jacket! https://www.quechua.co.uk/advice/how-do-you-restore-water-repellent-properties-your-jacket-a_86426 And use the care product: Wash-in product for reactivating the water-repellent properties https://www.decathlon.co.uk/eco-wash-in-proof-250-ml-id_8408883.html

Product testing

All our down jackets are laboratory tested with 3 mph wind, worn as a 3rd layer on a thermal mannequin (over a long-sleeved T-shirt and fleece). Their level of thermal insulation is measured on a scale of 1 to 5, so that you can make the choice that best suits your use.

Storage instructions

Store in a clean and dry place. Do not store folded in its pouch

Care instructions

Caring for down jackets requires special attention. We recommend using specialist dry cleaning services to maintain your down jacket. Machine wash at 86°F; add 2 tennis balls to restore the loft of the down. Rinse twice. Tumble dry (strongly recommended): synthetic cycle with 3 tennis balls to restore the loft of the down; for several cycles until the down has dried completely, to prevent the feathers from clumping and reducing insulating power. See the care instructions in the online guide
