Jacket hem drawcord
Elastic draw-cords and toggles.
Thumb loops on cuffs to prevent any heat loss and provide more comfort when moving around.
Thermal comfort and windproof
Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold.
With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°C.
"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 properties of the component (not to be confused with waterproofing)
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm. This is achieved through a treatment applied to the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (after every wash). Products for this are available in our stores. All Quechua Softshells enjoy the benefits of water repellent treatment.
