Additional information

Fabric waterproofing
We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure resistance, the more waterproof the fabric. Components with 2000 mm waterproof rating can resist 2000 mm of water pressure (which is roughly equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours). With waterproofing greater than 10 000 mm, the Mountaineering light jacket offers an extremely high level of waterproofing.
Product's waterproofing
The jacket's waterproof was tested in a rain shower with 100 litres of water / sqm / hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain downpour.
Fabric breathability
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporate resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more moisture, generated by an active body, is evaporated, and therefore the higher the fabric's breathability. We consider that if: - RET < 9 = highly breathable fabric - 9<RET<12 = breathable fabric - RET > 12 = slightly or not breathable fabric The jacket's fabric has a RET of 8
Garment breathability
On top of the main fabric's breathability, the choice of including mesh lined pocket helps to improve the jacket's thermal comfort, whilst helping to create air flow inside jacket by opening pockets.
Hood
The jacket's hood size makes it compatible with a mountaineering helmet. Its height and depth are adjustable to fit your needs. A semi-rigid visor offers better protection for your forehead and eyes. The high collar provides protection for the lower part of your face.
Pockets and Zips
Outer shell: 2 large pockets that fasten with taped zips. The pockets are positioned on chest, making it easier to get access to them when wearing a harness. Inner jacket: 1 mesh net zip pocket Two-way front zip that lets you open the jacket from the bottom, giving you quick access to the harness tie-in loop. The zip pulls are easy to use with gloves.
Product care
Machine wash at 30°C. Use washing powder, but not a softener. Close zips and adjust cuffs before putting in machine. Reactive water repellency with adequate treatment after each wash. A whole range of specially made waterproof and breathable fabric care products are available in our Decathlon stores. Making use of these helps to optimise the effectiveness of your garments throughout their life cycle.
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 ABCDE rating is performed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of products with each other (t-shirts, trousers, backpacks,...). Decathlon is a committed stakeholder in this environmental labelling approach. To get more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

    Good all-rounder

    Bought for ultramarathon running due to double taped seams and waterproof rating. Excellent jacket, does what it says

    Dobře sbalitelná lehká bunda spolehlivá i na hory

    Měla jsem ji na lezení v okolí masivu Domu ve Valijských Alpách (Švýcarsko) a tisíci menších výletech. Protože se hodně potím a šetřila jsem gramy a peníze, tak mi padla do oka. Brala jsem ji i na výběhy do kopce jen s trikem, je opravdu lehká a materiál tenký, takže jsem se bála roztrhnutí od batohu ( až 25 kg) ale zatím 3 roky vydržela. Takže jsem spokojená. Pro někoho, kdo se nepřehřívá při pohybu a chce odolnější materiál existuje i robustnější, silnější verze se zipy v podpaždí. Na zlepšení bych navrhla pevnější vyztužení štítku kapuce.
