LOCATION OF PRACTICE
This jacket has a fitted cut. The fabric is 13% elastane and the “raglan” sleeves up to the collar give better stretchability and more freedom of movement during your hikes. A warm layer, such as a fleece or light padded jacket can be worn underneath. You can choose your usual size, or a size above if you don't want it to be worn fitted.
The adjoining hood is adjustable in height and depth thanks to an elastic drawcord. Stiff visor for maximum face protection. The little detail that makes the difference: a triangular opening on the side of the hood for better visibility to the sides.
JACKET STRUCTURE / 3 LAYERS
This jacket is made up of 3 layers, the best protection there is on the market: the membrane is glued between the inner and outer component layer (hence it being called 3 layers). The membrane is a very thin polyurethane film that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It is protected by knitted fabric and has the advantage of being softer, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than a coating.
BAD WEATHER PROTECTION
For extra hand protection against the cold and rain, our stylist Jehanne chose a design that protects the palm.
We measure the water resistance of the fabric and the water resistance of the entire jacket. The waterproofness of this fabric is 15,000 mm Schmerbers: this means that it resists the pressure exerted by a 15,000 mm water column (ISO standard test). This jacket has also been through a shower test reproducing storm conditions of 30 cm of rain in 3 hours.

HOW TO RESTORE THE WATER-REPELLENT PROPERTIES OF MY JACKET?
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water, and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use. All the steps to restore the water-repellent properties are below: https://conseilsport.decathlon.fr/conseils/comment-reactiver-la-deperlance-de-sa-veste-tp_22965
The breathability of a material is its capacity to wick away the water vapour generated by perspiration. During intense effort, it is, therefore, essential to wear very breathable clothing so you do not stay wet. Breathability is measured by the RET, the resistance of a fabric to the evacuation of moisture. The lower this coefficient, the more breathable the fabric is: RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric RET ≤ 20: low breathability
