Questions & Answers

How flat does the pack?


This jacket can be folded up to pack down fairly small, but if packability is more important to you than durability and waterproofness, we'd recommend these ligth rain jackets instead:

Good value for money. Very practical and light jacket


I bought this model several years ago for my husband. He uses it every day working at sea. This recently purchased model is disappointing, lighter, nothing to do with the old model. In addition, the Velcro straps on the wrist are too thin and above all impossible to tighten properly, so sea water gets through.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 100.0% Polyester ; Lining: 100.0% Polyester ; Coating: 100.0% Polyurethane

Our commitment to consume less water with this product

Textile dyeing requires a lot of water and also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce this environmental impact, we chose to use a bulk-dyeing process that incorporates the colour pigments from the yarn manufacturing phase onwards: a dyeing process called ”Dope dyeing”.This process is used on the beige/navy colour and black (code 8650027 and 8785166).

Water resistance of the fabric

The waterproofness of a fabric, provided by a coating or membrane, is measured in Schmerber or mm H20 (pressure exerted by a column of water). The higher this number, the more waterproof the fabric. This jacket is designed with a waterproof coating (JIS 1092 standard): this component resists 5,000 mm H20 (Schmerbers) before washing (equivalent to the pressure exerted by a 5 metre column of water).

Why choose recycled polyester?

By recycling plastic bottles or used fabrics to produce our polyester, we reduce the use of petrol-based resources while maintaining the material's quality and performance during your hikes.We use recycled polyester fibres on the denim blue colour (code 8731538) and the red (code 8650029), as well as for the jacket lining in all colours.

Fabric water-repellency

The fabric of this jacket is water-repellent, i.e. water runs off its surface without being absorbed. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. In addition, we taped the main seams that are most exposed to the rain.

Fabric breathability

Our product's fabric is extremely breathable - 12 TER The breathability of a component is measured by its ”Thermal Evaporative Resistance”. This is its capacity to let out water vapour produced by the body during activity. The lower the Thermal Evaporative Resistance (TER), the higher the breathability of the fabric. TER < 9 = extremely breathable fabric RET <12 = very breathable fabric RET < 20 = breathable fabric RET > 20 = slightly to not at all breathable fabric.

Your health is our top priority

We changed the composition of our water repellent treatments in order to use technologies without perfluorocarbons (PFC).PFCs are used to make fabric water-repellent, however they are toxic to the environment and people. By substituting PFCs with other technologies giving the same level of performance, we are reducing the environmental impact.

How to maintain your jacket's waterproof quality and durability

To maintain a durable water-repellent fabric, we recommend reactivating it regularly. Do this every three washes (it is important to rinse abundantly) or after a dozen uses in the rain. You can easily reactivate the water repellent property by warming the fabric: - in a tumble dryer for 15 minutes (synthetic program) - with a hair dryer at a distance of 20 cm by going back and forth twice- or two passes with an iron on the delicate setting without the steam function.

Choose your waterproof jacket according to your sports effort

During sports activity, the extent to which we perspire depends on the intensity or the duration of the physical effort . If the breathability of the fabric is not adapted to your type of physical activity, the perspiration vapour condenses inside the jacket . You will feel damp inside this is not rain coming through but perspiration vapour condensing So you need to choose your jacket according to your type of physical activity . This jacket is designed for the occasional one-day hike at a speed of 5 km/h

Recommended additional product

To protect the lower body as well and have a very effective outfit to protect you against the wind and showers, we recommend the men's NH500 over-trousers. These over-trousers are also eco-designed (depending on the colour, a bulk dyeing process that reduces the consumption of water or recycled fibres are used)

Product testing

Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute-Savoie. This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts. A great asset for co-designing high-quality products for your hikes and giving you access to all our expertise.

Storage instructions

We recommend that you always dry this jacket thoroughly before storage.
