    Brand response :

    Bonjour Monsieur,
    Je vous remercie pour votre message concernant le Gilet Ball-Trap Clay 900. Je suis sincèrement désolé du désagrément que vous avez subi.
    Nous avons détecté quelques cas de fragilité au niveau de la bande de tissu proche des poches. Nous avons déjà lancé les actions correctrices en production.
    Bien évidemment, je vous invite à le rapporter dans votre magasin DECATHLON le plus proche pour procéder à un échange ou un remboursement.
    En alternative, je vous propose éventuellement de basculer sur le gilet Ball-Trap 500.
    Merci pour votre compréhension.

    Cordialement, Robin ALLOUI, responsable Tir Sportif.
