Technical information

Cut

The cut of these over-trousers was designed to be sufficiently wide so it can be worn and taken off easily. In parallel, our model creator, Vanessa, took care of the product’s patronage so that its cut remains feminine despite everything.

OVER TROUSERS STRUCTURE / 3 LAYERS

These over trousers are made up of 3 layers, the best protection there is on the market: the membrane is glued between the inner and outer component layer (hence it being called 3 layers).
The membrane is a kind of very thin polyurethane film that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable.
It is protected by knitted fabric and has the advantage of being softer, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than a coating.

WATERPROOFNESS TEST

The waterproof rating is measured by the fabric's resistance to water pressure expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric.
The component of this product has a waterproof rating of 10,000 mm, i.e. it can withstand the pressure exerted by a 10,000 mm column of water.
This is also equivalent to 10 000 Schmerbers.

BREATHABILITY TEST

Component breathability is measured by its thermal evaporative resistance (RET).
This is its capacity to let water vapour generated by the body during physical activity escape and therefore avoid water accumulating on the skin.
The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric.

RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric
RET ≤ 20: fabric with relatively little breathability

Our product has an RET of 8.

Product design: our expertise

Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for designing your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.

HOW TO RESTORE THE WATER-REPELLENT PROPERTY OF MY OVER-TROUSERS?

The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it.
In this way, the over trousers do not soak up water and stay lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use.

All the steps to restore the water-repellent properties are below:

STOCK ADVICE

Ensure that your over-trousers are completely dry before storing them.

TESTS

Our Decathlon Sportslab laboratory, based in Lille, also contributes to the innovation and development of our Quechua products.
It brings together 4 themes, each with their own area and technological tools:
Morphology (especially thanks to the 3D analysis)
Movement sciences
Thermal comfort (with its four climatic chambers)
Behavioural and sensory sciences
+ we describe the specific aspects of the test related to the product (e.g. shower, wind tunnel, etc.)

Approved By

To meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested in the mountains in conditions you will encounter during your hikes.
Our teams, as well as a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers), test products throughout their development until they go to market.
