Our engineers designed this jacket for kids who hike regularly whatever the weather conditions. No need to trade off waterproofing for warmth any more! The 3-in-1 system allows kids to use the jacket or fleece separately. You can wear it no matter what the weather forecast!

Can I be sure that my jacket is warm enough for my winter hikes?
We have developed this jacket for winter weather: cold, rain and snow. Insulation is 100g/sqm wadding combined with a fleece back (synthetic insulating component thanks to air trapped in the fibres). We have added a padded inner flap under the zip to prevent cold air getting in. The tightening at the bottom of the jacket completes the system.
Fleece component: Insulation provided by the air trapped inside
The fleece component is designed to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture. this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. The brushing of the knit fabric is what traps the air.
How does my jacket protect me from outdoor conditions?
Your jacket is designed with a waterproof outer component that keeps out water and wind. In the winter, to stay warm, you must also protect the tips of your body (head, hands, feet). The warm and waterproof hood, the tightened cuffs and the high collar prevent the cold from getting inside. Two pockets protect your hands from the cold.
How to dress properly for snow hiking?
To dress properly in winter, whatever your activity, we recommend using the 3-layer principle: layer 1: The high-tech base layer transfers moisture away from the body to keep your skin dry. layer 2: The second layer (fleece, sweater) provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards. layer 3: The jacket protects from the outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind. The whole outfit must be breathable in order to eliminate moisture.
How can I be sure that my jacket is 100% waterproof?
We designed your jacket with an outer fabric that has been coated to make it waterproof. We measure a fabric's resistance to a column of water expressed in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a waterproof rating of 2000 mm can therefore withstand the pressure exerted by a 2000 mm column of water (Schmerber). Validated in a shower test under 60L/sqm/h of water, which is roughly equivalent to a two-hour shower.
Water often gets in through the seams. Does my jacket have taped seams?
Your jacket is waterproof thanks to the fully taped seams. Waterproof tape is added to the seams inside the garment to make them watertight so that water cannot enter through the more vulnerable areas. We validated the waterproofing with a shower test specially designed to replicate the conditions of a two-hour shower. We also wore it in the field in all weather conditions to make sure that it is suited to your activities.
The fabric is rendered waterproof, and therefore windproof, by applying a coating or membrane to the inner surface. Indeed, the properties of a waterproof fabric mean that it can also be certified as windproof. It is very important to protect yourself from the wind, when moving or stationary, because of the wind's powerful chilling effect.
How to preserve the technical qualities of my jacket?
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 soak up water & therefore remains lightweight, breathable & warm. The water-repellent property is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during lifetime of garment (we recommend with each wash). Products (spray or liquid) designed specifically for this purpose are available in our stores.
2 secured hand pockets in the jacket + 1 mesh pocket inside. 1 inner secured telephone pocket inside the fleece. 1 adjustable, waterproof, padded hood attached.
Will my jacket withstand regular use over the long-term?
To ensure the durability of our products, we perform tests on the selected components: resistance to rubbing and abrasion, colour fastness, resistance to repeated washing. All these tests were conducted on the component of this jacket.
Recommendations for use
Using the 3-in-1 system. To combine the jacket and fleece, there are loops in the collar and on the fleece's cuffs. Inside the jacket, at the same place, there are tabs that fit into the loops. In this way, the jacket and fleece become one.
How does my product warranty work?
This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the sales receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.
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. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
Dry this jacket thoroughly before storing it in a dry place on a hanger so that the fabric does not get damaged by creases.
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop attractive, simple and technically advanced products. These are then tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
