Quechua MH500, Waterproof Hiking Jacket, Women's,grey blue
Filtered by reviews Loading reviews…
designed for european bodies

Not very functional and quality design for american consumers. 1. Blue color stains very easily surprisingly for a water resistant jacket designed for MOUNTAIN walking. 2. Sleeves too long and not enough velco on the wrist part to adjust it to where i need it to be. Very inconvenient and annoying everytime i put it on or off. There is no elastic like my marmot jacket 3. Wish the vents were around the arm pit not the same height as the pocket zipper Came to this conclusion after a few wears (duh) but was told i cannot return/exchange BECAUSE they were "used/worn" well how would i find out if your products work for me then?

Great Jacket

Although I haven’t worn it in the rain yet I can confirm that it’s 100% windproof and the fit is perfect

Perfect jacket

I have this jacket in light blue. I cycled with it from Sweden to Spain last autumn, and I can say that it's super water proof. And so pretty, it fits SO nicely. Love this jacket!!!

Well made, excellent fit, especially the hood. Good quality fabric, not too flimsy and excellent value - much cheaper and nicer than my old famous name jacket.

Good value, breathable waterproof.

Great coat, well made and a nice fit for my wife. Its not as short as most waterproofs are becoming these days. Pockets are a good size as is the hood. Coat is both waterproof and breathable, unless your doing some serious outdoor stuff in some serious conditions - why pay more.

Great jacket,looks and feels good,easy to wash,

Really good value,smart appearance,repels rain very well.

not waterproofed

the jacket is comfortable but not waterproofed decathlon should refund the jacket for wrong advertising. I've been wearing the Jacket on a long walk this Saturday and I got soaked.


Thanks for your feedback on the Quechua Forclaz 400 women's hiking rain jacket and I apologise for the inconvenience caused. I can assure you that this model of jacket is designed and tested to 10,000mm thus should be well suited to such conditions. If you would like a refund, please drop into your local store or get back in touch. We can then investigate the product further to determine it's failure. 

Many thanks

Waterproofing test

If you want to find out more, the details are here: Your MH500 jacket has a so-called "3-layer" component. Indeed, a membrane is stuck to the inside layer and the outer layer of the component, which is why it is referred to as a 3-layer component. This construction helps the membrane last longer and enhances the component's performance.

How to reactivate my jacket’s water-repellent property?

Breathability test

If you want to find out more, the details are here:

Component waterproofing

This garment was approved in a shower test in 26 gallons of water/sqm/hour for 3 hours. This reproduces the conditions of a big mountain storm. Garment's waterproof properties linked to fabric used, watertight seams and assembly process .The seams of your MH500 jacket are 100% sealed.

Waterproof zippers

Waterproof zippers on main fastening and 2 outer hand pockets to guarantee the jacket waterproofing.

Component breathability

To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance, or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor generated by physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric 920 = little or no breathability. Your MH500 jacket has a RET value of 6 (extremely breathable fabric).

Breathability of the garment

In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops technical solutions (zippers, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overpants (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines. These ventilation systems both allow temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.

Component with hydrophilic membrane

The component of your MH500 jacket consists of a membrane. A membrane like a very fine plastic film (polyurethane), making the component waterproof while remaining breathable. A membrane has the advantage of being softer, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than the coating. The coating is similar to a paint layer applied to the inside of the fabric. It is often less costly than a membrane and requires a lining for protection.

3-layer component

The MH500 jacket component is named "3 layer." The membrane is, in fact, bonded between the inner layer and the outer layer of the component (hence the name 3-layer component). This construction helps the membrane last longer and boosts the component's performance. In the case of 2-layer components, the membrane is bonded to the outer fabric only; the protective inner lining is free. This construction costs less but is generally more cumbersome.

Water-repellent component

A fabric is water-repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. 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 3 washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.

Additional recommended products

MH500 overpants protect the lower half of your body for a complete and effective rain protection system for your mountain outings. Care products: reproofing spray or liquid for use in the washing machine restores water-repellent properties of the fabric and optimizes the performance of your garment throughout its lifetime.
