Thermal comfort and windproof
Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold! With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is - 10°C. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
Water-repellency of the component (different to waterproofing)
Water repellency allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. The fabric does not soak up & stays light, breathable & warm. Water repellency is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (with every or 3 washes).

The environmental impact of the product is calculated based on its full life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE mark is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc). Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of this environmentally-friendly labelling approach. For more info: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
