Technical Information

1
Breathability
To determine whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance (test based on standard ISO 11092). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric will let water vapour produced by the body escape, and therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric.
2
Waterproofing
Waterproofing is a fabric's ability to prevent rain water from passing through. A fabric's waterproofing is determined by measuring its resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A material with a waterproof rating of 2000 mm resists the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (which roughly corresponds to a 2-hour rain shower).

Product tests
Our team of product designers is based at the B'Twin Village in Lille (France). All year round, we conceive and develop new products that are easy to use, look great, and have the technical features needed for your cycling experiences. They are then mercilessly put to the test by users in the field, as we are convinced that only by subjecting our products to real world conditions, such as the ones you will experience on your bike, can we continuously improve them.
5
A rating to compare products' environmental impact.
A product's environmental impact is calculated for its entire life cycle using various indicators. Products are then given an ABCDE rating to help you easily identify products having the best environmental performance (lowest impact) by comparing different products of the same type (T-shirts, bottoms, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon voluntarily chooses to display the environmental ratings of its products.

Brilliant product great value
Ideal Night Riding Jacket
Used for 1 week or less
Great jacket, good fit and ideal for night riding, good reflective strips making you highly visible. Excellent gilet and all this with Windproof/ Waterproof front.
Small sizing
Used for 1 week or less
I know cycling clothing sizing can be on the small side. I am usually medium so i ordered a large. Was a non starter, think i would be either an xl or xxl in this.
Quality wise seemed ok but had to return straight away so didn't cycle in it.
Response of the brand
The fit on this garment can be a little snug. I agree with you. Saying that, worn over a thin cycling jersey If you buy an L for your usual Decathlon cycling clothing then an L in the gilet should be fine as well.
If it's not right for you please feel free to return it for an exchange.

Disappointed
Used for 1 week or less
Initially really pleased with this top in terms of style, comfort and fit. But after a ride on a cold winters day for an hour the front and shoulders were wet inside even though the the mesh back is supposed to aid breathability. It doesn't. Needs to be made of breathable material.
Excellent fit and finish
Traps persperation
Response of the brand
Hello,

Thank you for reviewing this product. As you say, this product isn't the most breathable jacket due to the material. Where you wearing a back pack or anything over your shoulders which may have caused the condensation on the inside of the jacket?

If you are unhappy with the product you can return it for an exchange/refund.

It' fits well, the mesh back panel stops you getting damp inside, and it's great value.

BTwin 500 cycling gilet - neon Yellow
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I love this gilet and its very comfortable to wear
Perfect fit keep wind out
Well worth the money
Used for 1 week or less
Desperately needed one of these as my old one's zip broke. This is tremendous value, good quality and does what I expect. Principally, good wind-protection in front, and breathability round the back. Also, good reflective flashes and air-vents., as well as a generous zipped pocket. Not tried in the rain as yet, though I know it is only water-repellant, not waterproof. My previous one was a Sugoi and lasted well, so I hope to have the same out of this one.
Excellent wind-proof technology on the front panel
Medium size came up slightly short in length
