Thermal comfort and Windproof

The wind causes the perceived temperature to decrease considerably! With an outside temperature of 0°C and a 20 km/h wind, the perceived temperature will be -10°C. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.

Water repellent property of the component (different from waterproofing)

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 renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend doing this every 3 washes).

Component breathability

To find out if a fabric is breathable, we measure its total evaporative resistance RET (test 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 / 920 = little or no breathability.

Breathability of the garment

In addition to the breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, air vents, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of all its jackets and over-trousers designed for use on long hikes (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems regulate the temperature inside the garment while also helping to eliminate the perspiration generated by the body during physical activity.
