    Product feature
    1. WATERPROOFING
      - Dual-layer hydrophilic fabric - >10000 mm of water pressure. - Fully taped seams. - Three-way adjustable hood. - Double cuff with adjustable rip-tab strips. - Central opening features a flap with a drainage channel for optimal waterproofing. - Tested under a simulated heavy rain shower (450 L/hr/sqm) for 4 hours.
    2. BREATHABILITY
      RET <12: very 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.
    3. COMFORT
      - Three-way adjustable hood. - Adjustable jacket hem. - Adjustable fleece collar.
    4. REFLECTIVE
      - 2 shoulder patches - 2 hood patches intensifying light sources.
    5. RESISTANCE TO WEAR
      - Injected plastic central zip resistant to salt oxidation. - Reinforced jacket hem
    6. HOW TO REACTIVE 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.
    7. HOW TO REACTIVE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY? step 2: washing
      You can wash your jacket on a synthetic cycle at 30° or 40°C 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.
    8. HOW TO REACTIVE 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.
    9. HOW TO REACTIVE 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 waterproofing spray or detergent sold in our stores.
    10. 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/
    11. Visibility:
      The reflective 3M patches on the sleeves, collar, hood and the Tribord logo intensify low light sources.
    12. What is breathability and the RET index?
      The breathability of your Offshoroa jacket corresponds to its ability to let perspiration generated by the body escape. It is measured by its Resistance to Evaporative Transfer (ISO 11092 standard). The RET is a resistance index; the lower the value, the greater the breathability of the fabric. RET between 6 and 9: extremely breathable, between 10 - 13: very breathable, between 14 and 17: breathable, between 18 and 20: little breathability, above 20: not breathable.
    13. Water repellent component:
      The water repellency of your Offshoroa jacket is obtained by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment causes water to slide over the surface without soaking in. This prevents the component from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, breathable, and warm. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime. Our ranges offer products for this purpose or solutions can be found on the care instructions on how to reactivate your jacket's water repellent treatment.
    14. How important is windproofing?
      Protection from the wind is very important, as wind can chill the body significantly whether you are active or at rest. According to the "wind chill" model, which measures how the air temperature feels when factoring in the wind and cold: at a temperature of 5°C combined with winds of 30 km/h, the temperature felt will be 0°C. If the air temperature is 0°C and wind speed is 40 km/h, the temperature felt will be -7°C. Your Offshoroa jacket helps to counter the windchill effect.
    15. What is a waterproof and breathable HYDROPHILIC membrane?
      The membrane works in stages to wick away perspiration. Firstly, the fabric absorbs water vapour until it is saturated. Then, due to the difference in pressure between inside and outside the jacket, the fabric disperses the water vapour outwards. The main advantage of the hydrophilic membrane is that it does not contain pores; consequently, there is no need to constantly rinse the fabric to wash off any salt water crystals. Breathability therefore remains constant over time.

      Used for 3 to 6 months
      Have used this jacket regularly since receiving it six months ago, in both favourable and unfavourable conditions in the Dublin Bay area and on ISORA races across the Irish Sea to Wales. Great at keeping you dry through spray and heavier weather conditions. Size is generous which allows for extra layers underneath. If you don't want this, I would suggest ordering a size smaller that you would usually order.
