Designed for preparing yourself for wet weather. This Quechua rain cape is crafted from a durable material that won't tear as you hike around rocky mountains, and thanks to its spacious, slip-on design, it'll even cover your backpack.
  • Waterproof with taped seams
  • Elasticated hood for extra protection
  • Compact enough to roll away and fit into your bag

The hood can be tightened using an elasticated cord and a stopper.

Additional recommended products

To complement your outfit, a pair of waterproof trousers or gaiters is recommended to protect your lower legs perfectly.

Component waterproofing

We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard).
The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric.
Components with a 2000 mm rating can withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours).

Waterproofing of the garment

This garment has been shower-tested in 60 litres/sqm/hour of water for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.

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 resistance, the more water vapour generated by the body in physical activity can escape through the fabric. Hence, the more breathable it is.
For example:
RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric
9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric
12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric
RET > 20 = little or no breathability.
This cape has an RET = 12.

Water repellent property of the component

The water repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it.
In this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable and warm.
The water repellent property is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of the fabric.
This treatment needs to be restored throughout the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes).
All of Quechua's ponchos and capes have a water repellent treatment.

A score for comparing the products' environmental impact

The product's environmental footprint is calculated over its entire lifespan using various indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) with each other. Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products. For more information:
