Our team, made up of parents of young hikers, developed this softshell to ensure a good level of protection for your kid on hikes as in everyday life This jacket, with its component, can withstand all your kid’s adventures. Windproof and water-repellent, it protects them from wind and fine rain.
A quality achieved by applying a hydrophobic treatment to the fabric. This process prevents water from sticking to the fabric surface, causing it to "slide" off without soaking in. In this way, 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.
Wind protection is very important because of significant chill effect that wind can have on body, whether you are active/at rest. According to "windchill" model, which measures how air temperature feels when factoring in wind & cold: at a temperature of 5°C combined with winds of 30km/h, the perceived temperature will be 0°C. If the air temperature is 0°C & wind speed is 30km/h, the perceived temperature will be -6°C. Materials used in our products help to counter the chilling effects of wind
The membrane is a polyurethane layer sandwiched between the softshell jacket's inner and outer fabrics. It protects from the wind and retains the heat produced by the body. This membrane is also breathable: it transfers the water vapour generated during physical exercise towards the outside of the garment (thanks to its microscopic pores). This stops condensation from forming and the user stays warm and dry.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
Décathlon is the first French company to have introduced environmental rating. This rating has been developed with ADEME (Environment and Energy Management Agency) as well as other French companies. It allows products’ environmental impact to be assessed using a scale from A to E, A being the best score. http://sustainability.decathlon.com

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. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve is to test the products under the real-life conditions that you will experience.
