A hikers delight

Bought it for my wife who does a lot of bush hiking. She loves the feel, fit, and weather proof performance of this jacket.

Needs few extras

needs velcro at wrists to tighten sleeves , needs zip for when folding up as too time consuming to pack away and strings for shoulder carrying keep falling out and trailing down back of my legs, needs side entry pockets for putting hands in preferably chest area.

Keeps me dry and folds away.

Lovely jacket

Smart, lightweight but very waterproof. Has a lovely style. I ordered a size up.

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

A little smaller than size stated would order a size up. However the jacket is very practical

I love this coat. Nice, absolutely waterproof.


Perfect jacket for hiking ( especially in Scottish Highlands). The best think can change this jacket to little bum bag!. Really useful. This jacket is a little bit longer than usual, so covers your bum from rain. I recommend on 100%.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic


  • 100% Polyester cationic

Impermeability of the garment

This garment passed a 60 L/m²/hr shower test lasting 1 hr. This test replicates the average conditions of a rain shower. This jacket's fabric is water repellent: this is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. As a result, the fabric does not soak up the water and remains lightweight and breathable. A fabric becomes water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. What's more, the main seams that are most exposed to the rain are taped.

How to maintain the waterproofness of your jacket long-term

In order to retain the item’s sustained, long-term waterproof properties, the water repellency of the fabric will need to be reactivated: we recommend that this is done every 3 washes or after wearing a dozen times in the rain. When washing, abundant rinsing is essential, then reactivating the water repellent properties can easily be done in hot water: in a tumble dryer or with a hairdryer for a relatively short period. You will find all our advice in the instructions of this product data sheet.

Waterproof rating expressed in mm or schmerber

We measure the resistance of a fabric to water pressure expressed in mm of water column (test based on Standard ISO 811). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a 2000 mm waterproof rating can therefore withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water.

Component breathability

To assess the breathability of the fabric, the evaporative resistance, RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard), is measured. The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability. RET<9 = extremely breathable fabric 920 = little or no breathability

How to choose your waterproof jacket according to your sports discipline and the intensity of your physical activity

During sports, the extent to which we perspire depends on the intensity or duration of the physical activity. If the breathability of the fabric is not adapted to your type of physical activity, the perspiration vapor condenses inside the jacket. You feel damp inside: this is condensing perspiration vapor rather than rain getting inside. You therefore need to choose a rain jacket according to your type of physical activity. This jacket is designed for 1-day hikes at no more than 5km/h.

Our impact on the environment

On a scale from A to E, this jacket was given a score of B. Our products' environmental impact is calculated over their entire lifecycle. A score is given to each product in order to identify the most eco-friendly products within a particular product family (T-shirts, pants, backpacks). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental data of its products. For more information, go to:

Making dyes more eco-friendly

Our teams work to find innovative processes that reduce water consumption or water pollution during the production process. The "dope dye" (bulk dying) process saves up to 60% of water and significantly reduces the amount of CO2 emitted. This also reduces color fading over time. On this jacket, we began this process on the main navy-colored fabric and the turquoise-colored lining (this will continue until we are able to master the technique on other colors).

Making materials more eco-friendly

We take care of our planet in order to preserve our natural playing field for hiking. Given that, for this jacket, we have only mastered the new dyeing process above for some of the colors, we have opted for a material made entirely of recycled polyester fibers for the other colors (main fabric in turquoise and red and the lining in navy and red). As a result, we have reduced our environmental impact on all the color versions.

Additional recommended products

Raincut overpants for protecting the lower body as well, so that you can have a complete outfit that offers highly effective protection against wind and showers.And, first and foremost: we are also starting to use this more eco-friendly dyeing process on the overpants!


Our hiking jackets are guaranteed for 2 years. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your nature hikes. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still continuing!



Product testing

It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up and designed the Quechua products. We test them in the laboratory and in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and waterproof. Whether it is in forests, on the coast or in the countryside in rainy weather, etc., we cover as many different paths as possible. This testing gives us plenty of opportunities to discuss the products, get your feedback and plan our future collections!

Storage instructions

Always make sure that this waterproof protective garment is completely dry before storing it.
