Product care advice
Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine to renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimize performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.
We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with 2000mm waterproofing therefore resists the pressure exercised by 2000mm of water (which corresponds to a 2 hour shower approximately).
This garment has been shower-tested using 26 gallons of water/sqm/hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the resistance, the more the fabric allows water vapor created when the body is working to escape and therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops technical solutions (zippers, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overpants for hiking. These ventilation systems allow you to regulate the temperature inside the garment and also to facilitate the transfer of perspiration generated by the body during physical effort.
Component with coating or a membrane
Coating: 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 edge, being more supple, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than coating.
Water repellent component
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. The fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua overpants benefit from water-repellent treatment.
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, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
