900 Men's Offshore Sailing Jacket
Waterproof, breathable, and highly resistant!
- Membraned 3-layer fabric - A strong rain corresponds to a flow of 450L/m2/h - (= rainfall of 450mm/h) - The rainfall simulator reproduces these conditions for 3*8 hours. - Component resistant to water pressure of 10,000mm after ageing, = 10000 Schmerber - average pressure of water during a storm? - Water repellent components (water runs off the fabric). - 100% taped seams. - Central opening features a flap with a drainage channel for optimal waterproofing

RET <15: breathable. To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance, or RET, (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). It is its ability to allow the water vapour produced by the body during exercise to escape.

HOW TO REACTIVATE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 1: before washing
Close all zips and flaps and remove any parts of the garment that cannot be washed. Also remember to loosen the straps and elastic parts and empty the pockets. Then turn the garment inside out to wash it.
HOW TO REACTIVATE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 2: washing
You can wash your jacket on a synthetic cycle at 30 or 40C with your usual detergent. Do not use fabric conditioner, which could damage the existing performance of the garment, or bleach. Also take care not to bend your jacket too much when you place it in the washing machine and do not overload your machine. Very important: select a thorough rinse or double rinse to completely remove all detergent residue.
HOW TO REACTIVATE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 3: drying
Drying is a crucial phase in reactivating the water repellent treatment. We recommend that you lay your jacket flat on a clothes rack and leave it out to dry in the open. Caution: never dry your jacket directly on a radiator. Then place it in the tumble dryer on a short synthetics cycle, i.e. 10 to 15 minutes, before turning it back the right way round. Caution: do not over-dry the garment.
HOW TO REACTIVATE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY
If, despite this procedure of washing and thorough rinsing followed by gentle drying in a tumble dryer, the drops of water no longer run off the surface of your jacket, we recommend that you "re-waterproof" it using a spray sold in our stores.
SCORE TO COMPARE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF PRODUCTS
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme. For more information, visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
