All sizes available in three different colours. Free collect to your local Asda.

It says optimum temperature -5 to -10 so should be perfect for British spring time!

Visited the store today- can't believe how they can price these and other jackets so low.

Decathlon sizing is small so recommended ordering at least one size up.

They probably named it like that purposely to make you look twice!

make is quechua if it matters

​Haha me too. I had to double check the title and picture... Was surprised decathlon were selling movie gear. Shame.

Can decathlon click and collects really be collected from Asda, or is that a typo? If it can be then that's awesome for me as my Asda is much closer than my local Decathlon.

Normal price, bought this a a cheapo for apre MTB and its really good. Its not waterproof and the down isn't hydrodown but its a steal at this price. To qualify I own lots of top branded equipment as I ski and mtb in Scotland ( this is not a boast, just to show I am not a brand snob, there are a few on HUKD)

Good deal if they fit - I tried them on and found the medium skin tight and the large absolutely huge I guess I'm not built to Decathlon specifications!

Not a deal as this is the standard price

Yeah ,I picked up a tracksuit I ordered from Asda today

I've had one of these for about 12 months and, the quality and performance are excellent. Compared to all the other overpriced, got too have labels, these are a steal. Slightly water resistant as well, the rain does bead up and run off.

Agree with other comments here. I bought one of these just before Xmas after looking for weeks at all kinds of down jackets. Very good price for a great jacket. Quechua is Decathlon's own brand, but does the job. Warm, slightly waterproof and looks the part too. I got the black/orange. Sizing is a bit misleading as I'm usually a small/medium but had to go for large in this, which is 38 to 40" chest.

this is my go to daily wear down jacket. At £28 it is such a bargain. sizing is very small. I am normally a XL but had to go up to XXXL in this jacket.

Compared to branded stuff (I have Berghaus, North Face and Patagonia) the material quality is noticeably lower grade but it hasn't detracted from the warmth or comfort. maybe longevity will be shorter but for 1/4 of the price of the branded stuff, it's to be expected.

highly recommend value for money.

What's the deal?

My husband is after the Rab version of these at around the £135 mark. He could have 4 of these and change for a kendal mint cake too!

Ordered. Thank you very much.

What's the deal?



got one already easily the best value coat I own it's so warm and light!

It's cheap because it only has down in the front and back and not the sides and sleeves. And even that is only 75/25 (down/feather) and just 540 fill power. (a 90/10 and 600 upwards fill power is pretty standard).

dine usually buy xl but after reading the comments here ordered xxl

Does something need to be reduced to be a good deal? Most shops pretend that something is reduced to make their normal price seem like a good deal. This is an example of a shop being sensible - they could have put 'was £150, now £27.99' like most places do so then you would call it a deal? I think this is a good deal because it's a product available to buy at a great price

Its not the same as the rab which as someonelse has explained will be full down and treated for water (hydradown). The rab is a quality premium product. This is budget and good. It is Not waterproof as some claim but will resist light showers.

​Darn it! I keep trying to find a decent, cheaper alternative to the Rab but all arrows point right back towards it!

​Either are OK for the price. Just be aware of what they are and what you really want of them.

As warmish winter fashion jackets they will be ok, and just pick which one you like. As more serious hiking gear, they may be ok but then the limitations come into play. The fabric is not rip-stop or water resistant for instance.

One comment I have is that the hoods are a bit crap and don't cover your face. So if a hood is important then think on that. If a hood is not important, then choose one with just a collar which is less bulky around the neck.

There are similar types and quality available from the usual outlets, so I don't think these are particularly cheaper than other budget jackets.

There is a big difference in quality, warmth and weight from the well known brands and the cheap ones though. You really don't know you are wearing a jacket with some of the better brands, and you stay at an even temperature. So comfort can be much much better.

looks nice

Found this under technical information:

INFLATING POWER OF DOWN/FEATHER FILLING

For this down jacket with its 85/15 filling, the inflating power is guaranteed to be 660 CUIN or above. 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.

IN CASE OF RAIN

The material of the quilted jacket is water repellent. It allows drops of water to slide off the fabric which delays penetration of water into the jacket while you get out of the rain. But the down jacket is not waterproof. We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the down jacket in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.

Feathers used are from Chinese ducks reared for their meat, feathers are removed after slaughter.

Prefer the look of this one compared to the OP, black with blue interior.

Are we allowed to wear these ?
I thought it was strictly an East European thing.

ika

Ordered. Thank you very much.


A ha.....

Bought this jacket in November. And in xxxl size and fits perfectly for a 50 inch chest, it is delivered to asda and the pick up is a doddle

Such a controversy about people wearing fur, but feathers are still ok? #doublestandards.

Remember, don't feed the troll!!

You wouldn't catch Magneto wearing this

We hold the death certificates for these ducks. oO
