    Product feature
    1. Inflating power of down/feather filling
      This 85/15 padded gilet has a guaranteed minimum fill power of 660 CUIN. The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. Down with higher fill power takes up more space, trapping more air and providing greater thermal insulation.
    2. The advantages of duck down and feather filling*
      The durable and inflating properties of the down give this jacket 3 qualities for hiking: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra-light weight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same degree of warmth. This allows you to lighten the load in your backpack - Ultra compactable * Our feathers come from Chinese ducks reared for their meat; we remove their feathers after slaughter. We hold the death certificates for these ducks
    3. Care advice for a sleeveless jacket with down and feather filling
      The sleeveless down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow our advice by clicking on the link below: How to wash and dry your down jacket

    4. The benefits of a sleeveless down jacket
      A sleeveless down jacket helps to keep the body warm: it protects the chest, neck and kidneys - which are particularly sensitive to chills - from the cold. Being sleeveless it lightens the load in your backpack while providing even greater breathability during exercise and excellent comfort during movement when worn under a jacket. The sleeveless down jacket is therefore especially advantageous during high exertion while hiking.
    5. 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: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

      I normally buy Large - but went for Xtra Large for this purchase. This was a happy choice 'cos the sizes are a little smaller that normal

      Ideal for keeping in my backpack for extra later of warmth to the body. Packs down so small and in own stuff bag. Only fault is the opening for the arms is elasticated and slightly too tight, making it ever so slightly uncomfortable in that area.
      Sizing, warmth
      Sleeve / arm aperture tight
