Men's Fast Hiking Jacket Windproof Helium Wind 500,midnight blue
Filtered by reviews Loading reviews…
Very nice and light jacket with a couple issues

First thing for US residents, the sizes listed on (as of winter 2019) are UK/EU sizes not US sizes so something listed as a XL is really UK/EU size XL and US size L. I'm at the lower range of measurements on the size chart and the listed size fit me great, but if your on the larger side it might be better to go up one size. Overall I really like this jacket and love the price but it has a few issues. 1. When i was running the string on the zipper bounced up and tapped my lips every step, not to big of a deal, but having a little flap at the top to keep the zipper from rubbing would also hold it down and prevent that. 2. The zipper pull is on the left side of the jacket, while not a big deal its hard to overcome many many years of muscle memory on how to zip a jacket up. 3. The largest problem, after my first run, this jacket REALLY smelled bad. A kind of chemical smell just filled the room where it was hanging. I've had that smell in other products before, and it just takes a few washes and some airing out, but it is annoying.

Very handy and super comfortable. One of the best product that i. Have ever seen camper to all the brands.

Thermal comfort and windproof

Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold! With an outside temperature of 32°F and 12 mph winds, it will feel like the temperature is 14°F. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.

Water-repellent component (different to being waterproof)

A fabric’s water-repellent property is what makes water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from becoming saturated with water and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every 3 washes).

Component breathability

To find out if a fabric is breathable, its total evaporation resistance RET (test based on ISO 11092), is measured. The lower the resistance, the more the fabric lets water vapor generated by body movements escape, therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = little or no breathability.

Breathability of the garment

In addition to breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zippers, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its backpacking jackets and overpants designed for great hiking use (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems can be used to regulate the temperature inside the garment as well as eliminate the perspiration generated by the body during physical activity.
