Our team, made up of parents of young hikers, developed this padded jacket to protect your kid from the cold during their outdoor activities! Perfect for spring and autumn, our padded jacket is made with recycled wadding for optimum thermal insulation. Its water repellent exterior component will protect your kid from light rain!
The wadding filling provides 3 appealing qualities for hiking: - it has good thermal insulation capacity, even when wet - it provides come breathability and may be recommended in the case of dynamic activity (feather down is recommended for static activity) - compressibility: wadding is very compressible
Recycled wadding (polyester)
Filling made of 90% recycled wadding. By using recycled polyester, no new oil-based resources are used. The waste is recycled into resources that can be used again.
Water repellent properties
Feature obtained by applying a hydrophobic water-repellent treatment to the fabric. This process prevents water from sticking to the fabric, it "runs off" the surface without getting absorbed. As a result, the garment remains lightweight, breathable and warm. The effectiveness of the treatment can be restored during the product's lifetime. Use sprays that are applied to the outside, rather than additives used when washing the garment, which can damage the product's breathability.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
Decathlon is the first French company to have implemented an environmental scoring system. This score was worked out with the ADEME (French environment and energy management agency) and some other French companies. The environmental impact of the products is measured using a scale from A to E, A being the best score. http://sustainability.decathlon.com
Store on a hanger or folded in a clean, dry place
Our design team is based at the foot of the Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are beautiful, simple and technologically advanced. We then ruthlessly tested them in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve our products is to test them under the real-life conditions that your kids will experience.
