Waterproofing of the garment
This clothing was validated in a shower test using 60 L/sqm/hr of water for 1 hour. This test reproduces the average conditions of a shower. The fabric of this jacket is water-repellent, i.e. it makes water run off its surface without absorbing it. As a result, the fabric does not soak up water and stays light and breathable. A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. What's more, we have taped the main seams, those most exposed to the rain.
How to maintain the waterproofing of your jacket over time
In order to maintain good waterproofing over time, the fabric's water-repellent properties must be regularly reactivated. We recommend doing this every 3 washes or after a dozen uses in the rain. The waterproof property is easily reactivated by warming the fabric: either in your tumble dryer or with a hair dryer, for example, over a relatively short period. If you are washing it, it must be thoroughly rinsed. You will find all this advice in the instructions
Measurement of the waterproof rating expressed in mm or Schmerber
The resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a 2000 mm waterproof rating can therefore withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its total evaporative resistance (RET) based on the ISO 11092 standard. The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability. RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric RET > 20 = little or no breathability
How to choose your waterproof jacket according to your sports discipline and the intensity of your physical activity
During sports, the extent to which we perspire depends on the intensity or duration of the physical activity. If the breathability of the fabric is not suited to your type of activity, the perspiration vapor condenses inside the jacket. You feel damp inside: this is condensed perspiration vapor rather than rain. You therefore need to choose a rain jacket according to your type of physical activity. This jacket is designed for 2-hour hikes at a pace of 3 mph

It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up and designed the Quechua products. We test them in the laboratory and in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and waterproof. Whether it is in forests, on the coast or in the countryside in rainy weather, etc., we cover as many different paths as possible. This testing gives us plenty of opportunities to discuss the products, get your feedback and plan our future collections!
