The product benefit
The thumb loop on the cuff to prevent loss of heat and more comfort when moving.
Thermal comfort and Windproof
The wind causes the perceived temperature to decrease considerably! 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 repellent property of the component (different from waterproofing)
The water repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not become waterlogged.
A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend every 3 washes) by placing the jacket in the dryer for 10 minutes at a low temperature.
You can also use the FORCLAZ re-waterproofing spray (ref 8554908)
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing and contrasting products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).
Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating initiative.
