    Comfortable mid layer
    Reduced insulation under arms

    Nice warm jumper. As with all Decathlon garments, I really like the fit, and I like the fact that there is slightly less insulation under the arms, which helps to maintain a good body temperature. This is quite a nice colour as well, not really bright red, but a kind of burnt orangey-red.

    Forclaz 500 Men's Fleece
    Looks well made and the lining promises to be warm Sizing info is way out!

    Ordered an XL after seeing others comments. The size guide says XL is 120/123 cm, i measured the chest on the XL delivered but it came in at approx 110cm, more like an M/L than an XL Needless to say i couldn't even get my arms in let alone do it up. Would recommend getting 2 sizes larger.

    Bought another bargain from Decathlon
    warm, light, excellent value for money No loop to hang the jacket on a peg

    I was looking for a reasonably priced jacket for chilly nights when camping. This was found in the best sport/outdoor shop around

Approved by
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our designers create and develop products that are appealing, simple, and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
We carry out 2 types of thermal testing: - either a test of the material of our fleeces. - or testing on a thermal manikin in a thermal chamber. We recreate the temperature, wind (5km/h) and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains hiking at 5km/h in our tests. These tests allow us to validate our design choices. So we can adapt our thermal insulation where you most need it.

Fleece material: insulated thanks to air
The fleece component features a space-creating texture which helps lock in air; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.The brushed knit helps to lock in the air.
Laminated fleece material
To increase the heat, 2 fleece materials are bonded between, which partially blocks the wind chill effects
