I bought this jacket a couple of years ago now and it was great for travelling , lightweight, could roll up into a rucksack, looked smart and casual. It kept me dry and with a light fleece underneath, warm also. I unfortunately left it at a hotel when I was passing through Madrid and it was lost. I have looked at the replacement and they seem to have changed the design , which I cant comment on as I haven't replaced the jacket as yet
Light weight compared to other jacket of same type. Can be used on light showers too, not during heavy rain. Overall thumbs up

So far i have found this jacket performed well. I have used it during a couple of hikes in Wales, although not in very wet conditions surprisingly. The material seems tough and doesn’t russell too much when you wear it.
Can someone advise on the best way to wash this jacket in order to protect its waterproof and breathable qualities ? The label says 30degC, no fabric conditioner, no tumble dry. Any advice on detergent ? Normal stuff (bio/non bio?) or nixwax specialist stuff?? Anyone got any washing experiences?
It was marketed as large, but it was more like medium, was very tight and did not fit. Gave it to my grandson. Never had problems with sizes in the past from other retailers.
Refined jacket, some quirky details
As usual the price is a steal compared to the big outdoor brands. For me this jacket is an addition, or possibly a replacement, for a pretty comparable Haglöfs jacket that was more than 5 times as expensive! Now during sales, it is even 25% off again.
Just inspecting this jacket, it is a pretty serious outdoor (mountaineering) jacket. Short cut, pretty good adjustable hood, ventilation zippers, breathable fabric, taped seams, Velcro adjustment of the cuffs, water resisting zippers for the side-pockets and ventilations. It is all very neatly made. And I quite like the colour combination, a nice matt blue with yellow details.
There are some quirky details.
- Breast pockets are pretty essential to me. I want them big, I want them well accessible, and I want 2 of them! In the past I have even adjusted 2 Quechua fleece jackets myself to get that. It is a pity that on this jacket Decathlon has added just one again. It is not particularly small, but it seems small because the zipper is a bit too short and is not placed very practical.
- The sleeves are mysteriously long. When I compare it to the Haglöfs jacket, which has a very comparable width and length, the sleeves are about 10 cms longer! Fortunately there are the Velcro adjustments to make it usable.
- The hood lacks a vertical drawcord to keep the hood out the eyes.
- The main zipper could be of a more robust quality.
I have just been able to test it during some extended (light) rain. So far it worked well and kept me dry. At first it even shed drops off the fabric. That effect is of limited duration, but the main shell kept me dry.
The breathability is hard to compare. Under dry conditions it can easily get a bit too warm and stuffy. But I do not think it does a bad job.
Excellent wind and rainproof jacket. Only slight criticism is that the sizes come up a bit small and arms a bit long but that's probably because I'm shaped like a orangutan. If you want to use this as part of a layering system definitely go up a size to your normal as it is a " slim" fit. But overall an excellent jacket at a great price.
The waterproofing is very good. I've taken it out for walks in pouring rain and it remains dry after an hour. There are just two issues though that make it merit only a four star rating, one minor and one major:
Minor: the tape seams aren't perfect and are the first to leak after about 45 minutes.
Major: the orange lining on the inner bottom side is water absorbing. Water that slides off the front on to your trousers will be absorbed by this lining and will then travel up to the pockets, which are not waterproof on the inside. If you put your phone there, it WILL get wet. You must put your phone in a plastic pouch or in the chest pocket further up.
I wish the lining was water repellent or the pockets were internally waterproof. Either would have avoided this problem.
The chest pocket is a little to small
