Decathlon has a WIDE variety of waterproof jackets, raincoats and ponchos. Therefore, you might wonder - which one is the most suitable for your needs? Fret not, we are here to help you out!
The first thing to note is whether you'll need a half-zip or full-zip jacket:
- A half-zip jacket is the most affordable of all types of jackets. It is almost like a poncho but only zips down halfway.
- A full-zip jacket zips all the way down. This also means it is much quicker to put it on and take it off as compared to a half-zip jacket.
The second deciding factor is its level of waterproofness:
At Decathlon, a fabric's resistance to water pressure is expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm.
The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Therefore, a component with a waterproof rating of 2,000 mm can withstand the pressure exerted by a 2,000 mm water column.
So look out for the different ratings for our jackets! You can find it under the product description.
Some jackets can also be folded and stored in their own pockets for convenience!
