The poncho folded in…

The poncho folded in this incorporated pocket comes out very wrinkled and despite the rain it remains very wrinkled. After washing, still the same result, I ended up ironing it with an interlayer towel and despite everything it is better but far from perfect. I will never put it back in this pocket. The ponchos of previous years were much better and the pocket separate storage more practical I recommend this product for the waterproofness but not for its neglected appearance

Rain poncho

Easy to carry and use if it starts to rain during a walk. Ideal because the backpack also fits underneath and therefore remains dry.

Ideal for hiking

Tested this weekend in the mountains. It's very good. It's just a shame that it doesn't come in other colors (red or yellow for example). I recommend. It will be perfect for Compostela

Additional Product Information

Composition

Main fabric: 100.0% Polyester ; Coating: 100.0% Polyurethane

Fit and sizing information

Good coverage for hikers between 157 and 173 cm in height (size S/M) or 174 and 190 cm (size L/XL) and carrying a 60L maximum backpack. Hood can be tightened thanks to elasticated drawcord and stopper toggle. The ends of the sleeves are cuffed with an elastic binding that prevents water from entering your sleeves. This rain cape is easy to get on and off thanks to its long front zip which slips easily over the head.

Additional recommended products

To complete your outfit, we recommend overtrousers or waterproof gaiters to fully protect your lower legs. For greater breathability, the waterproof hat can also be attached to the poncho!

Component waterproofing

We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Components scoring 2000 mm can resist the pressure from 2000 mm of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hours).

Waterproofing of the garment

This garment has been validated in a shower test under 60 litres of water / m² / hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.

Component breathability

Our rain poncho and cape ranges do not come with a waterproof/breathable membrane.Therefore, we recommend calm, gentle use to reduce perspiration rather than fast hiking!

Component water resistance

The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, warm and breathable. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment needs to be renewed throughout the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes). All Quechua ponchos and capes have a water-repellent treatment.

Care

We recommend you use a re-waterproofing product (spray or liquid)To renew the fabric's water repellent-properties and optimise the garment's performance throughout its lifetime.

Storage instructions

Long-term storage: dry thoroughly and fold in its bag.
