Special treatment causes water to slide off the fabric's surface.
Ease of use
2 closed inside pockets, one with a zip. 2 zipped hand-warmer pockets.
Resistance to salt water
Treatment preventing hydrolysis (which alters properties of standard coatings)
Durable, waterproof component and assembly. 2-year guarantee.
The exclusive Novadry Acryl component is guaranteed to keep you dry even in a downpour. In the rain simulator, the jacket stayed for 4 hours under the equivalent of a 100 L/hr/sqm storm without the tiniest drop getting through the product. The component waterproofing is guaranteed to withstand more than 5000 mm of water pressure. All seams are fully taped.
The hood is easily stored in the pocket built into the collar. It can be tightened with an adjustable elasticated cord equipped with two self-blocking eyelets to better protect you from the elements.
Protection of documents and accessories:
An inner zip pocket lets you safely store your documents and accessories.
Two big, zipped, hand-warmer pockets let you protect your hands from the wind and rain and keep your accessories safe.
The hem of the jacket can be adjusted with an adjustable elasticated cord that limits water and air getting in.
The cuffs have rip-tabs so that you can adjust the tightening at the wrist.
Made using two materials (nylon and mesh), the lining has been specially designed for optimum moisture wicking by creating natural ventilation between the lining and the outer fabric.
The injection-moulded plastic front and pocket zips are oxidation-resistant, thanks to the special shape of the teeth. It has an exterior flap and a placket that guarantees optimal waterproofing.
What is a waterproofing test or "shower test"?
Approved test where the garment is placed under a shower simulating different weather conditions. All our products are certified 100% waterproof having been tested for 4+ hours in rain of 100 L/hr/sqm to 450 L/hr/sqm depending on the product use. To put this into perspective, the highest recorded rainfall was in the USA in 1942, when 174 L/h/sqm fell over 4.5 hours (NOAA). The average rainfall in Paris is 2 L/h/sqm (www.Paris.fr).
Score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators.
An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).
Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme.
