Additional recommended products
Waterproof overtrousers for protecting the lower body to complete an effective rain protection outfit designed for mountain walks. Care products: waterproof spray or wash-in waterproof liquid to restore the fabric's water repellent properties and optimize the garment’s performance throughout its lifespan.
3-layer coated fabric.
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the higher the waterproof rating of the fabric. Components with a 2,000 mm waterproof rating can support the pressure of a 2,000 mm column of water which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hours.
This garment has been shower-tested using 450 litres of water/sqm/hour for 4 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a tropical storm. Garment's waterproof properties linked to fabric used, watertight seams and assembly process .
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity can escape, 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 = little or no breathability.
Membrane or coated component
The coating is like a layer of "paint" applied on the underside of the fabric to make it waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less costly than a membrane, and requires a lining for protection. The membrane is like a very fine plastic film (polyurethane) making the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being more flexible, lightweight and durable, and often more breathable than a coating.
3-layer, 2-layer or 2.5-layer component
3 layers: the membrane is bonded to an inner and outer layer of the component. This construction prolongs the life of the membrane and enhances the component's performance. 2 layers: the membrane is only bonded to the outer fabric, while the inner protective lining is loose. This construction costs less but is generally more cumbersome. 2.5 layers: the membrane has inner protection with a kind of varnish coating rather than an actual layer to make it as lightweight as possible.
In addition to the breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of all its jackets and rain pants designed for long-distance hiking use (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems regulate the temperature inside the garment and help to eliminate the perspiration generated by the body during physical effort.
A fabric's water repellent property is its capacity to repel water so that it runs off its surface. This prevents the fabric from absorbing 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 (with every 3 washes). All the Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
Comparison between the environmental impact of the products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over the entire lifecycle of the product using different indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing similar products to each other (t-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc). Decathlon is committed to displaying environmental information. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are beautiful, simple, and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, because we believe that the only way to continually improve our products is to test them under the real-life conditions you will experience.
