Sizing and fit information
Fairly close-fitting cut. The inner volume of this jacket allows you to wear another warm layer of clothing, like a jumper or a thin fleece.
Height can be adjusted using an elastic drawstring and toggles. Adjustable depth with rip-tab fastening positioned at the back of the hood. Memory shape visor for good protection to the face.
2 large pockets with flaps and fastenings + 2 hand pockets on the 2 large pockets + 1 chest pocket with zipper + 1 inner pocket with zipper.
With rip-tab straps.
Breathable fabric on the inside of the sleeves to optimize the evacuation of perspiration and provide more comfort when the jacket is worn bare arms (over a t-shirt for example). Bi-material lining around the body: mesh in the back and under the armpits to enhance the breathability of the garment and nylon at the hips to maximize the freedom of movement and abrasion-resistance. Soft touch component at the hood for extra comfort.
Additional recommended products
Care products: waterproof spray or liquid in the machine, to renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimize performance throughout the lifetime of your garment.
This garment has been shower-tested using 16 gallons of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure 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 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = fabric is not breathable or has low breathability.
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water repellent treatment.
All our models are tested by users representative of our target market in conditions identical to those you encounter yourself when using them. We believe that carrying out 'real-life' testing is the only way to design and continuously advance the technical relevance and design of all our Quechua products.
