    Great jacket for the Scottish hills

    Delighted with this jacket. I began hillwalking and hiking earlier this year in the Scottish Highlands, so am quite new to this, but have found this to be perfect for my needs - breathable and waterproof, with loads of practical features including plenty of pockets which is invaluable for easy access to all the stuff you need on a day up a mountain in variable weather conditions. The peaked hood fits well, and the underarm zippers are a godsend to help keep cool without having to strip off. This jacket has been thoughtfully designed, and offers more for the price than many of the well known outdoor 'Technical label' products. If I had an option to improve this product, I could only suggest Decathlon could look at varying the colour options for women's gear to offer an alternative to pink. It's ok, but us women like vivid greens, oranges, reds blues too?

Storage Tips
Store your properly dried socks in a dark, dry place.


Limiting the risk of chafing
In the heel and the tip, the component is a polyamide spun with a second thread of PTFE-coated polyamide that helps to reduce the risk of blisters forming. These socks cannot protect 100% from blisters. Blisters usually appear when our skin is weakened by chafing, caused by socks, shoes or foreign bodies. Damp also plays an important role as it weakens the skin.
Characteristics of the threads
The heel and toe of the sock are made from friction free polyamide to reduce rubbing. The rest of the sock is made from a fast drying polyamide to reduce the feeling of having sweaty feet. Specific loop areas are made thicker for greater comfort. Well ventilated knit zones to wick away seat.
How to choose the height of your socks
We have produced 3 heights of hiking socks. "Short" socks that reach over your shoes but remain under the ankle. "MID", which are slightly higher than your ankle, to protect it. These 2 heights are designed to be worn with low shoes. "High" socks are ideal with hiking boots as they are slightly lower than the calf.
Choosing your hiking sock size
Our socks are available in 4 different shoe sizes (35/38, 39/42,43/46, 47,50). We use elastane in all our socks, so that they fit closely to your feet and remain in place. We all have feet of different lengths, proportions and sizes: to do this, it is important to try your hiking socks in the store before buying them. Also try out your socks before going on a long hike
