"Rain-Cut Pant" overpants waterproof leggings for complete protection for the lower legs and provide comprehensive and highly effective protection from the wind and rain showers.
Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine. To refresh the fabric's water-repellent properties and optimize your clothing's performance throughout its lifetime.
We measure a fabric's resistance to a column of water in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with 2000 mm waterproofing therefore resists the pressure exercised by 2000 mm of water (which corresponds approximately to a 2-hour shower).
Technologies: this garment has been subjected to a shower test using 16 gallons of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
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 water vapor generated by physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
Water-repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be repeated throughout the product's life (we recommend every 3 washes). All Quechua waterproof ponchos and capes have received a water repellent treatment.
A score to compare products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score of ABCDE is calculated to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.).
For Decathlon, this initiative to display environmental data is a priority.

All our models are tested by users representative of our target market in conditions identical to those you will encounter when using them. We believe that testing in real life scenarios is the only way to continuously improve the technical suitability and design of our QUECHUA products.
