  6. Thermal comfort and Windproof
    Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold! With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°C. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
  7. Water-repellency of the component (different to waterproofing)
    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, so that it stays lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (with every 3 washes).
  8. Component breathability
    To find out if a fabric is breathable, its total evaporation resistance RET (test based on ISO 11092), is measured. The lower the resistance of the fabric, the more water vapour generated by body movements is allowed to escape and hence the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 920 = little or no breathability.
  9. Breathability of the garment
    In addition to breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overtrousers designed for great hiking use (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems allow both temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.
  10. A score for comparing products' environmental impact
    The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. A score ranging from A to E is attributed so that you can easily identify the products with a better environmental performance compared to products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks,...). Decathlon totally backs the environmental labelling approach. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
