Component with coating or a membrane
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 supple, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than the coating.This jacket has a membrane.
Component 3 layers, 2 layers or 2.5 layers
3 layers: the membrane is bonded to an inner and outer layer of the component. This construction helps the membrane last longer and boosts the component's performance. 2 layers: the membrane is only bonded to the outer layer, the inner protective lining is free. 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
We test a fabric's resistance to water pressure by measuring the height of a column of water supported by the fabric in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The better the fabric resists pressure, the more waterproof it is. Components with a 2000 mm rating can withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hour).
Waterproofing of the garment
This garment has been shower-tested using 100 litres of water/sqm/hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains.
In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops high-tech solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its hiking jackets and overtrousers. These ventilation systems allow both temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.
A fabric's water-repellency is its ability to let water slide over its surface without absorbing it. 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 the Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water repellent treatment.
Additional recommended products
Forclaz Rain overtrousers protect the lower half of your body for a complete and effective rain protection system for your mountain outings. Care products: waterproof spray or liquid in the machine to renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifetime of your garment.
