How warm is this padded jacket?
This padded jacket, worn as a 3rd layer, has been certified for an active comfort temperature of -10°C during a standardised test in a thermal chamber. The model is wearing a synthetic long-sleeved T-shirt and a light fleece underneath. It works with a simulated 5 km/h wind. We have also tested this model in "static" mode, the comfort temperature is 0°C in this case.
The advantages of a duck down and feather filling
The filling power of down has 3 advantages for mountain sports: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra low weight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same degree of warmth. This saves even more weight in your backpack - Ultra-compressible
How to measure the fill power of a down and feather wadding?
The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. It is expressed in CUIN (cubic inches). So, down with a higher fill power (higher CUIN number) will occupy more space, trap more air and provide greater thermal insulation. For this down jacket with its 85% down/15% feathers filling, the fill power is guaranteed to be 660 CUIN or more (European standard).
* What is RDS certification?
Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers in accordance with our commitment to use responsible materials. Our suppliers are committed to only using down from ducks reared for their meat and plucked after slaughtering. We have been awarded RDS certification (Responsible Down Standard) by a third-party organisation. http://developpement-durable.decathlon.com/documents-et-rapports/documents/

How to care for a down and feather jacket?
The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow our advice by clicking on the below link: https://www.forclaz.co.uk/advice-alias/how-should-i-look-after-my-down-jacket-tp_2579 In brief: 1/ machine wash, 30°, with 2 or 3 tennis balls. Gentle spin cycle. 2/ tumble dry with 2 or 3 tennis balls, and repeat 2 or 3 times until it is completely dry.
In case of rain
The material of the quilted jacket is water repellent. This means that drops of water roll off the fabric preventing them from soaking into the padded jacket as quickly, giving you time to find some shelter. But the padded jacket is not waterproof. We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the down jacket in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.
How do I reactivate the waterproofing properties?
Follow the guide: https://www.quechua.fr/conseils/comment-reactiver-la-deperlance-de-sa-veste-a_86425 We recommend that you use the wash-in care product https://www.decathlon.fr/eco-wash-in-proof-250-ml-id_8408883.html It restores the water-repellent properties of the fabric and optimises the performance of your garment throughout its lifetime.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The environmental impact of the product is calculated based on its entire life cycle and using different indicators. A general score from A to E is provided to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc). Decathlon is committed to displaying this environmental information. For more info: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
