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.
Component water repellency (different from waterproofness)
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, breathable and warm. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes).
The product's environmental impact is calculated across its life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is provided helping you easily identify the most environmentally friendly products by comparing products of the same type (t-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon voluntarily supports this environmentally friendly approach. For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
