Durable component has been selected to reinforce jacket's forearms. Indeed, during practice, these areas are heavily stressed. The selected component is more robust than the main component of the jacket.
Score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon has chosen to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme. For more information, visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

    Used in arctic exped and Kyrg exped winter. Great.

    Have used this for a season on various winter splitboarding trips. Been down to -25c and was toasty warm where friends were shivering in other brands. Love this coat. Packs small. Light enough to bring everywhere.

    Very comfortable, lightweight and protective

    I have used this duck down jacket for 2 winter seasons in Boston, US and northeastern states. The temperature often goes below -20 degree C in winter here. The design of this jacket is so perfect that I absolutely didn't face any issues during winter with this jacket on. Sometimes I would just wear a half sleeve shirt inside and still would feel comfortable. The only drawback is, this jacket is NOT waterproof/ water-resistant. It'll get soaked in water quickly, which would be undesirable. So, you may have to remove the accumulated snow over it (during snowstorms etc). I also have washed this jacket in a laundromat washer and dryer. No issues there too.
