Recommended additional product
Care products: water-repellent reactivating spray or liquid. To boost fabric water-repellency and optimize your garment performance throughout its life. We recommend using these products with each wash.
Thermal comfort and windproof
Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold.
With an outside temperature of 32°F and 12mph winds, it will feel like the temperature is 14°F.
"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 repellency of the component (not to be confused with waterproofness)
The water resistance of a fabric is its ability to let water slide on its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm. This is achieved by applying a treatment to the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be repeated throughout the garment's lifetime (after every wash). Products are available in our stores. All Quechua Softshells are water repellent.
