    Good value softshell
    Good price, seems well made Arms a little short

    I bought this jacket as an extra layer for cycling to work, so far it's held up well. It's worth noting that it isn't designed for cycling though, so the arms are a little short when on the bike. Apart from that it seems warm and is pretty weatherproof. Wear something warm as a base layer.

    QUECHUA Windwarm 100 Men's Softshell Hiking Jacket

    Very pleased, been out in rain shower and kept dry and comfortable. Covers back well with out drifting, exposing back to the elements of the weather. Stops wind chill all though we not had much cold winds to test out fully.

    Softshell Men's Forclaz 100
    Warmth, feel, general fit Sleeves are too narrow/tight

    Sleeves are just too thin, and therefore feel restrictive under movement. Anything long sleeved underneath just ride up to your elbow. The feel of the material is nice, both inner and outer. I was concerned it may be a bit too warm but seems to regulate the temperature quite well

Additional recommended products
Care products: water-repellent reactivating spray or liquid. 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 to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm. The fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface. This treatment must be repeated throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every wash). Products for this are available in our stores. All Quechua Softshells enjoy the benefits of water-repellent treatment.
A socre for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental information. For more information visit:
