Waterproofing of the component of this jacket
The waterproofing of a fabric by a coating or a membrane is measured in Schmerbers or H20 mm (pressure of a water column). The higher this number, the more waterproof the fabric.
This jacket is designed with a waterproof coating (JIS 1092 standard): this component resists 5,000 mm H20 (Schmerbers) before washing (equivalent to the pressure exerted by a 5 metre column of water).
Resistant performance of your jacket
To maintain a water-repellent fabric, we recommend reactivating it regularly.
Do this every three washes (it is important to rinse abundantly) or after a dozen uses in the rain.
You can easily reactivate the water repellent property by warming the fabric:
- in your tumble dryer for 15 minutes (synthetic program)
- with a hair dryer at a distance of 20 cm going back and forth twice
- or twice over with an iron on the delicate setting without the steam function
The fabric of this jacket is breathable: RET = 12.
Component breathability is measured by its thermal evaporative resistance (RET).
This is its capacity to let water vapour generated by the body during physical activity escape and therefore avoid water accumulating on the skin.
The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric.
RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric
RET ≤ 20: little or no breathability
Choose your waterproof jacket according to your sports effort
This rain jacket was designed for a 2-h hike at a pace of 5 km/h max.,without elevation gain
During sports activity, the extent to which we perspire depends on the intensity/duration of the physical effort If the breathability of the fabric is not adapted to your type of physical activity, the perspiration vapour condenses inside the jacket You will feel damp inside this is not rain coming through but perspiration vapour condensing Choose a rain jacket according to your type of physical activity

TESTS AND WARRANTY
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute-Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc.) and outdoor sports enthusiasts to test our products on natural terrain.
Our range of waterproof jackets and over trousers also undergoes a shower test in our chamber at our Decathlon Sportslab laboratory near Lille.
To meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested out in the heart of nature in the type of conditions you may encounter during your hikes.
Our teams, as well as a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers) test products throughout their development until they go to market.
