Thermal insulation - Warmth
This padded jacket, worn as a 3rd layer, has been certified for a comfort temperature of -5° during a standardised test in a thermal chamber. The mannequin wears a synthetic long-sleeved t-shirt and a light fleece underneath. It works with a simulated 5 km/h wind. In our heat comparison tool, it represents 2 stars. We have also tested this model in "static" mode; its temperature rating is +5°C in this case.
*What does the RDS certification mean?
We use RDS certified down: Responsible Down Standard. Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers in accordance with our commitment to use responsible materials. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are bred for their meat and which are plucked after slaughtering. http://sustainability.decathlon.com/media-reports/documents/
Inflating Power of down/feather filling
For this down jacket with its 85/15 filling, the fill power is guaranteed to be 800 CUIN or more (European standard). The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. So, down with a higher fill power (higher CUIN number) will occupy more space, trap more air and provide greater thermal insulation.
The advantages of a duck down and feather filling
The durability and fill power properties of down give this jacket 3 qualities for hiking: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra low weight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same degree of warmth. This saves even more weight in your backpack - Ultra-compressible
In case of rain
The material of the quilted jacket is water repellent. The treatment is applied to the main fabric that makes drops of water run off the surface, thereby delaying the time it takes for water to get inside the down jacket, so you have enough time to get out of the rain. We nevertheless recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the quilted jacket in the event of prolonged exposure to the rain.
How to wash your feather down jacket
Here are a few tips: close all the zips on your down jacket and put it in the washing machine (synthetic cycle at 30°C). In order to preserve the fill power and warmth, you can even put 2 tennis balls in the machine Be careful to set a gentle spin cycle: a fast spin cycle may create balls of feathers that are difficult to break up.

Down jacket developed using continual improvement methods
The trek 100 down jacket has been improved over the years thanks to all the customer reviews. Thank you for sharing! From winter 2020, the pink model (like the other light colours) will benefit from very light-coloured feathers and down. This will prevent any visually unpleasant dark areas on the down jacket when it is wet.
All our down jackets are laboratory tested in 5 km/h winds and worn as a 3rd layer on a thermal mannequin (over a long sleeved T-shirt and fleece). Their level of thermal insulation is measured on a scale of 1 to 5, so that you can make the choice that best suits your use.
