Additional products recommended Forclaz 300 or Bionnassay overtrousers give protection to the lower body for a complete and effective outfit against the rain during mountain hikes.
Waterproofing We measure a fabric's resistance to a jet of water, in mm of the water jet (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. Components scoring 2,000mm can resist the pressure from 2,000mm of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting one hour).
Waterproofing NOVADRY® technology: this garment has been subjected to a shower test using 100 litres of water/m²/hour for 4 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains. Please visit Novadry.com for more information.
Component breathability To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by an active body is evaporated, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
20 = little or no breathability.
Breathability In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overtrousers (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines).
Water repellency Water repellency is a fabric's ability to let water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. Water repellency is achieved through a treatment applied to the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (we recommend after every wash). Water-repellent treatment products are available in our stores. All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment
Outer fabric: 100% polyester.
Quechua is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our design teams create and develop products that are beautiful, simple, and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field in collaboration with our technical partners and mountain professionals. We remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
When folding your jacket into your bag, avoid bending the peak of the hood which can damage the thermal pre-moulding.
Wash at 30°C. Use liquid detergent; do not add fabric softener. Fasten zips and rip-tabs before washing. Recreate water repellency with the appropriate treatment before each wash. A range of products specially designed to help you care for waterproof and breathable fabrics is available in all Decathlon stores. These products will help you optimise your garment's performance and longevity.
