Component waterproofing

This garment has been shower-tested using 450 litres of water/sqm/hour for 4 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a tropical storm. Garment's waterproof properties linked to fabric used, watertight seams and assembly process .

Component breathability

To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example:
RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric
912RET>20 = little or no breathability.
Your MH900 jacket has a RET value of 6 (extremely breathable fabric).

Breathability of the garment

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. These ventilation systems allow both temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.

Component with hydrophilic membrane

The component of your MH900 jacket consists of a membrane.
A membrane like a very fine plastic film (polyurethane) making the component waterproof while remaining breathable. A membrane has the advantage of being softer, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than the coating.
The coating is similar to a paint layer applied to the inside of the fabric. It is often less costly than a membrane, and requires a lining for protection.

3-layer component

The MH900 jacket component is named "3 layer".
The membrane is, in fact, bonded between the inner layer and the outer layer of the component (hence the name 3-layer component). This construction helps the membrane last longer and boosts the component's performance.
In the case of 2-layer components, the membrane is bonded to the outer fabric only; the protective inner lining is free. This construction costs less but is generally more cumbersome.

Water-repellent component

A fabric is water repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water repellent treatment.

Additional recommended products

MH500 overtrousers protect the lower half of your body for a complete and effective rain protection system for your mountain outings. Care products: waterproofing spray or liquid in the machine To renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.
