    Good quality jacket
    Fit, quality, style

    Keeps me warm when walking about and looks very smart. Good at keeping the wind out and surprisingly repellant in the rain. Love it.

    Great for half the price of mainstream brands.
    Windproof, style. Waist drawstring. No YKK zippers. No Hood drawstring.

    excellent jacket punching way above it's weight. The DWR coating works great if caught in showers ( but isn't designed to be in a storm). The pockets and feel are great but the hood and thus storm cover is a little large for me(as I'm 6ft so had to get a larger size). Get's blown around a bit as it has no pull string to tighten it, which if it had would easily get it 6/5.

    If the pockets are full it does feel a tad restricting.
    I'm not sure if I'm keen on the thumb loops but they work and don't cause a problem.

    It's rather warm (equivalent to approx the 200-300g fleeces they sell) when used as a mid layer.

    Would recommend.

Recommended additional product
Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine. To renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.We recommend using these products with each wash.
Thermal comfort and windproof
Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold. With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°C. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
Water repellent properties of the 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. This is achieved through a treatment applied to the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (after every wash). Products for this are available in our stores. All Quechua Softshells enjoy the benefits of water repellent treatment.
