Didnt think it would be that warm looking at it externally , but turning it inside out reveals a waffle type brushed inside that holds tiny pockets of warm air in, breathes well too.
I would wear with a thin baselayer if it was really cold below minus 2 with any wind blowing. You can layer up below and above this to use as baselayer or midlayer. also smart enough to wear casually. Large hood too that would cover a helmet.. I took a chance buying it in a sale after previously buying the 900 warm softshell fleece. excellent kit and at a fraction of what some of the other big brands are selling at.
I finished chasing brand labels after climbing kilimanjaro in a £14 decathlon jacket that was warmer than my £140 RAB jacket !

This is item is superb and possibly the technically accomplished that decathlon sell, from a big brand mountain retailer you'd pay £60-80 for a similar bit of kit.
You can wear this as a mid-layer with a thin base layer underneath, or as standalone base-layer in cold conditions, the stretch and freedom of movement is excellent for climbing and the hood fits well under a helmet.
I hope decathlon management will reintroduce this item and its not an end of line product. i'd buy another in an instant,
10 December 2015Use since 1 week or lessI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionawesome climbing mid/base layer.great sleeve length, decent fit, warm. Nothing
Bought this as an alternative to the ME eclipse hooded fleece and it's brilliant: very light yet surprisingly warm. The medium fit my 6' height and portly 40ish chest and is a tight, stretchy fit with awesome sleeve length. The waist is rubber lined to prevent it riding up. The hood is big enough to fit over a helmet though this does make it a bit baggy otherwise. Had to buy one for my other half too as she threatened to nick mine.
31 October 2015Use since 1 week or lessI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionExcellent mid layerQuality, feature set, value None as a mid layer
Ordered this along with the Techwinter 500. The '500' can be used as a close fitting base layer or a mid if you size up. Decathlon suggest Techwinter range can be both?... but definitely the 900 is a mid layer as I found as a close fitting base the arm zip irritated against skin.
Excellent quality and lots of features as can be seen on video. Like the 500 it's stretchable, warm, breathable material but a little heavier/ thicker with more features.
Returned as I have other Quechua mid layers so I haven't tested it but certainly worth a look if you're looking for a lightweight mid layer.
