In terms of WATERPROOFING, what does it provide?
The trousers are waterproof up to 10,000 Schmerbers thanks to their component and taped seams. This jacket has been validated in a shower test: the fabric can resist up to 10,000 mm of water pressure after 5 washes.
Our waterproof membrane is not made for rugged vegetation (branches, brambles, etc.), so be careful when going through forests!
For superior comfort, the trousers have a drawcord at the waist to hold them in place when running.
What about the BREATHABILITY?
It is breathable (RET < 6) thanks to its membrane.
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 the water vapour generated by an active body is evaporated, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = hardly or non-breathable fabric.
Wear 1 or 2 layers:
The design team designed these waterproof trail-running trousers to protect you from wind and rain.
Wear these trousers over another pair to stay dry as possible: such as short or long tights, a skirt or skorts.
WASHING and CARE instructions
WASHING: hand wash in lukewarm water or in your machine on a short, delicate programme (30°), use a small quantity of liquid detergent and a slow spin. Do not use washing powder, fabric softener or bleach.
Drying: reshape the garment and leave to air dry.
When completely dry, you can put it in the tumble dryer at low temperature on a short and cold/delicate programme to restore the water repellency.
What are these trousers like in terms of FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT?
The trousers have been specially designed and developed to accompany movement when running.
Move freely thanks to their ergonomic cut!
A score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle using a range of indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to easily identify the more eco-friendly products by comparing them with products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is committed to visually displaying the environmental information of its products.
