Technical Information

1
Feather origin
Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers, which are sourced 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://developpement-durable.decathlon.com/documents-et-rapports/documents/
2
Fill power of down/feather filling
For this jacket filled with 85% down / 15% feathers, the fill power is guaranteed to be 800 CUIN (European standard) The fill power is the capacity of the down to insulate by "trapping" a certain volume of air. So, the more loft the down has (i.e. the higher the CUIN number), the more space it will occupy and the more air it will trap, thereby providing greater thermal insulation.

The advantages of a duck down and feather filling*
The down's long-lasting fill power gives it 3 important qualities for hiking: - Thermal insulation thanks to air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra-lightweight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding, while offering the same degree of warmth. This saves even more weight in your backpack - Ultra-compressible

Care instructions for jackets filled with down and feathers
The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow the instructions by clicking the link below: http://www.quechua.com/wash-your-down-jacket
6
In case of rain
The material of this down jacket is water-repellent. It makes drops of water run off the surface, which delays the time it takes for water to get inside the down jacket, giving you time to get out of the rain. We do, however, recommend that you to wear a waterproof jacket over your down jacket in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.

Test
10 trekkers (5 men and 5 women), who are not linked to Quechua, tested this down jacket for a week of trekking in November 2016, in the Mont Blanc mountain range. The feedback from this test is used to validate this down jacket for mountain trekking.

Product test
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.

Works great for my Nov2018 Everest Base Camp trek!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This jacket is of great value! It's light, compact, fits well, and kept me warm. For reference, I am 1.75m and weigh around 91kg. Temperatures went as cold as -14 degrees C during the day, and -20 degrees C at night. For normal temperatures (est. -5 to 10 degrees), a down/fleece jacket plus a long sleeve tee will keep you warm IF the sun is out. For -5 to -20 degrees C, I find it best to layer a polyester base layer, a fleece jacket and a down jacket. I bought the jacket at $65 and at this price, I will highly recommend it, if you want to stay reasonably warm, but do not want to spend too much. It comes with a hood, which I did not use, but I can see it becoming useful if my beanie is not warm enough.

Well constructed, very warm and light too. Bought as a stop gap but the more expensive jacket is off the shopping list as this jacket is awesome. Cannot actually fault it. I'm 5'11" and 80kg and medium is perfect for me as a mid layer. If I was looking to wear layers under it I would size up to a large. Depends how fitted you want it.
Nice jacket

Not all down jackets are born the same. I am hoping that this one is will prove to be a long-term good purchase.
I love the colour and styling of the jacket, it is very warm and now that I have the right size the fit is great too. I wanted the jacket to be quite fitted and so I order a 'small' and a 'medium' as I often fall between these sizes. After a week's wait I was told that the small was out of stock so I was being sent just the medium. When the medium arrived I could only just get it on, so the small would have been a total 'non-starter'. I therefore ordered a 'large' which is perfect on me..quite fitted as I wanted. I am 176cm and medium build so this item sizes-up small IMO.
Other reviewers suggest the hood could do with having some adjustment and I agree however I guess this may compromise the ability to pack down to the tiny sizes that it does.

Very warm, good insulation. Jacket sixe XXL good fit with good sleeve cuff length. Very pleased with product.
Great value
Great warmth to weight ratio and very compact. I'm 5'10'' slim build and size L was a perfect fit. Agree with others in that it would benefit from a cinch for the hood escpecially as the hood is not close fitting so will not move with your head. Also a inner pocket would be nice.Would be happy to pay more for these but not a deal breaker for me and a bargain at this price.
quality jacket
