To renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimize performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed as a water column of mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. Components scoring 2,000 mm can resist the pressure from 2,000 mm of water.
Novadry® technology: this garment has been subjected to a shower test using 100 liters 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 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 / 9<RET<12 very="" breathable="" fabric="" 12="" ret="" 20="breathable">20 = little or no breathability.
In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops high-tech solutions (zips, ventilations, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its hiking jackets and rain pants.
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.
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. This is achieved through a treatment applied to the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes).All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated based on its entire life cycle using different indicators.
An overall ABCDE score is applied to help you readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).
