This padded jacket, when worn as a 3rd layer, has a temperature rating of 10°C that was certified during a standardized 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. In our heat comparison tool, this is equivalent to 1 star.
Technical information on the wadding
We use a 100% polyester wadding (90% recycled): 100 g/sqm in the body and 60 g/sqm in the sleeves.
Do you know why the inner lining of your padded jacket is grey?
Because the fabric we use reduces CO2 emissions by 40%. The fabric used is innovative because it mixes a self-dyed black thread and an undyed thread. Compared to a conventional dyeing process, this process also reduces by: - 66% fine particle emissions (PM2.5) - 74% Eutrophication of fresh water - 68% eutrophication of sea water
Our advice in the event 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.
Water repellent property of component (not to be confused with waterproofing)
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use. We recommend that you restore it after each wash
How to restore the water-repellent property?

The benefits of synthetic wadding
The wadding is an effective alternative to feathers: - It has good thermal insulation, even when wet - It provides some breathability and is suitable for dynamic physical activities (given that feathers are recommended for static activities) - It is easy care: machine wash at 30°C and tumble dry
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. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of this environmentally-friendly labelling approach. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
