    Details
    Product feature
    1. Sizing information
      Quite a close-fitting cut. The jacket's inner volume allows you to wear it over a thin second layer such as a micro-fleece.
    2. Pockets
      2 hand pockets + 1 chest pocket with zip fastening.
    3. Thermal comfort and Windproof
      Wind considerably increases the chill effect. With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°C. The so-called "windproof" components eliminate the discomfort associated with the "wind chill" effect. They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
    4. Jacket hem drawcord
      Elastic draw-cords and toggles.
    5. Breathability
      The main fabric used throughout the jacket, except at the sides, has a wind proof membrane with a breathability of 2814 g/m2 per 24 hrs (according to the JIS 1099 A standard).
    6. Water repellent items (above all not to be confused with impermeability)
      The water repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water, and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use. In order to reactivate it, follow the guide: https://www.quechua.fr/conseils/comment-reactiver-la-deperlance-de-sa-veste-a_86425
    7. Recommended additional product
      Waterproofing spray for leather and textiles. https://www.decathlon.fr/bombe-re-impermeabilisant-id_5954981.html Regenerates the water repellency of the fabric and optimises the performance of your garment throughout its lifespan.
    8. A note to compare the environmental impact of the products
      The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is allocated 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: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

      I have bought this jacket with lot of excitement. it does not perform as mentioned as i wore this jacket in 2 degree. I required one thermal inside it to survive comfortably. The most worst part about it is cloths under arms started bubling it really looks like 2 years old jacket really not expected from jacket which cost 3499 in India.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Ajinkya,

      Thanks for your valuable time to review the Windwarm 500 jacket by Quechua. I am sorry that the product did not fulfill your expectations.

      To give you a small insight on softshells, they are best solution for protection from the wind and not ideal for warmth. A fleece or a down jacket will be a good answer. The Windwarm 500 is good for protection from wind on high altitudes. If you are looking for a softshell which can keep you really warm, I request you to kindly consider - http://bit.ly/2LMTw8s , the front part of the jacket is polyfill for better warmth. If you can explain me your exact usage, I would be glad to recommend you the right product as per your need. Also for the issue of piling, this usually happens when we sleep wearing the jacket as there is higher abrasion, can you let me know if your case was different? This will allow us to take up the issue with the concerned teams to ensure our users in future do not face any issue. Meanwhile, I apologise again for the inconvenience and request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and get this product exchanged.

      I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.

      Sportively,
      Sandeep NAIR
    • Misleading - not windwarm - trek 900 or 500?

      Used for 1 week or less
      One person mentioned this but I reiterate that this jacket performs poorly in the wind especially the grey patch under the arm which is considerably large area. Don't understand why it is needed if it already has the open vent zip. However, I love the clean and slim cut and definitely 5/5 for smart styling but as a jacket - maybe indoor only. Also confusing labeling as Trek 900 or Windwarm 500 on the receipt.....
    • 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.
    • Excellent softshell

      Used for 7 to 12 months
      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).
