    Excellent softshell

    I spent weeks looking for a proper softshell - visited a lot of outdoor clothing stores and online retailers - I chose Decathlon product.

    Purpose: mid-layer underneath a waterproof jacket or as a cover layer for dry conditions. Destination: Iceland hiking adventure. Time: May.

    After experiencing a week of extreme winds & occasional light showers across North-West & South Iceland I can confidently say that I have been amazed that for £40 you can get such a good quality product (especially compared to much, much more expensive high-end brands). It's very comfortable, soft, fits perfect (I am slim-build), ventilation zips worked really well, reasonably sized pockets. Wearing a base layer, mid-layer and this softshell both myself and my friend (who purchased the same product) felt very comfortable when hiking around fjords.

    My only little concern after more than 6 months of using it is an armpit material bobbling a little bit - I appreciate that it's a different fabric to allow freedom of movements. It has no influence on my final rating though.

    Overall: great design, fantastic quality for the price, useful pockets, great wind protection, water repellent (I treated it with waterproofing spray - good for the UK weather).

    Down Pockets should have some warm cloth

    Jacket is good but all the pockets have net and not any warm cloth.
    So you can not use the pockets for seeking warmth for hands.
    Cold Air keep passing through the hands.

Recommended additional product
Care products: spray or liquid water-repellent reactivator. To refresh the fabric's water-repellent properties and optimise your clothing's performance throughout its lifetime. We recommend using these products with each wash.
Warm 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 items (above all not to be confused with impermeability)
Water-repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be repeated during the garment's lifetime (we recommend after every wash). We sell products for this purpose in our stores. All Quechua Softshell items have received a water-repellent treatment.
A score to compare products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score of ABCDE is calculated to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). For Decathlon, this initiative to display environmental data is a priority. For more information:
