Great budget priced waterproof pants

Used this for camping, but have not actually hiked in bad rainy weather yet. Easy to fit over trousers, and keeps legs warm when camping. So far so good, but the real test will be hiking in the rain.

Good price and does what it says

I have a pair of these with a different brand from a cycle shop and paid 3x the price! These are value for money. Not much else to say other then pick a size larger then you would normally wear since these are over trousers which you put on over top of your pants when it rains and not meant to be worn as your only pants.

As you’d expect

Kept the rain out on a full day hike of rain in NZ. Crotch slightly too low, which restricted walking slightly, but not a deal breaker. Good value. Good quality waterproofing (though not used much yet) Not too rustly.

Does the job...great value

If you're looking for a budget rain over pant, that will keep you dry in the rain. This is a good choice. I used this on my recent backpacking trip, on our last day, it rained solid overnight and throughout the day, when we were leaving camp. Kept me dry. the zipper at the bottom of the leg, worked well to keep the pants tight over my boots, my feet were dry as well. only reason I gave this 4 stars, pants are very slim (euro-fit), they were very tight in the thigh, was wearing long john's under these pants.


Used it once and worked awesome

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic


  • 100% Polyurethane

Waterproofing of the garment

This garment has been shower-tested using 60 L of water/sqm/hour for 2 hrs. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower. The fabric of these over pants has water-repellent properties: this is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it.As a result, the fabric does not soak up water and stays light and breathable. The water-repellent effect is achieved by using a treatment applied to the outer surface of the fabric. In addition,we sealed 100% of the seams.

How to maintain the waterproofing of your jacket over time

In order to maintain good waterproofing, the fabric's water-repellent properties must be reactivated: we recommend doing this every 3 washes or after a dozen uses in the rain. After washing, the product must be rinsed thoroughly and then the water-repellent property is easily reactivated by warming the fabric: either in your tumble dryer or with a hair dryer, for example, over a relatively short period. You will find all our advice in the instructions of this product data sheet.

Measurement of the waterproof rating expressed in mm or schmerber

We measure the resistance of a fabric to water pressure expressed in mm of water column (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a 2000 mm waterproof rating can therefore withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water.

Component breathability

To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its RET evaporative resistance (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor generated by physical activity can escape, hence the higher the fabric's breathability. RET<9 = highly breathable fabric. 920 = little or no breathability.

Our impact on the environment

On a scale from A to E, this product scored a B. The environmental impacts of our products are calculated over their entire lifecycle. A score is given to each product in order to identify the most eco-friendly products within a particular product family (T-shirts, pants, backpacks). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental data of its products. For more information, go to:

Making dyes more eco-friendly

Our teams work to find innovative processes that reduce water consumption or water pollution during the production process. The "dope dye" (bulk dying) process saves up to 60% of water and significantly reduces the amount of CO2 emitted. This also reduces color fading over time. We used this new procedure on these overpants.

How should i choose my waterproof jacket according to my sports discipline and the intensity of my physical activity

During sports, the extent to which we perspire depends on the intensity or duration of the physical activity. If the breathability of the fabric is not adapted to your type of physical activity, the perspiration vapor condenses inside the overpants. You feel damp inside: this is condensing perspiration vapor, rather than rain getting inside. You therefore need to choose overpants according to your type of physical activity. This model is designed for a 1-day at a rate of 3 mph max.


Our overpants come with a 2-year guarantee. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your nature hikes. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still continuing!



Product testing

It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up and designed Quechua products. We test them in the laboratory & in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and waterproof.Whether it is in forests, on the coast or in the countryside in rainy weather, etc., we cover as many different paths as possible.These experiences were highly beneficial for us, allowing us to hear your feedback & start thinking about our future collections!
