Water repellent properties:
This functional feature is obtained by applying a hydrophobic treatment to the fabric. This process prevents water from sticking to the fabric, causing it to "slide" off without soaking in. As a result, the garment remains lightweight, breathable and warm.
The effectiveness of the treatment can be restored during the product's lifetime. Use sprays that are applied to the outside, rather than additives used when washing the garment, which can damage the product's breathability.
Wind protection is very important because of the significant chill effect that wind can have on the body, whether you are active or at rest.According to the "windchill" model, which measures how the air temperature feels when factoring in the wind and cold: At a temperature of 5°C combined with winds of 30km/h, the temperature felt will be 0°C. If the air temperature is 0°C and wind speed is 30km/h, the temperature felt will be -6°C. The materials used in our products help to counter the chilling effects of the wind
The membrane is a polyurethane layer sandwiched between the softshell jacket's inner and outer fabrics. It protects from the wind and therefore ensures that body heat does not escape. This membrane is also breathable: it wicks water vapour generated by the body through its microscopic pores to the outside of the garment, preventing moisture build-up and keeping you warm and dry!
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
Decathlon is the first French company to implement environmental ratings. These ratings has been developed with the ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency) as well as other French companies. The ratings are used to assess the environmental impact of product thanks to a scale from A to E with A being the best rating.
