TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

Breathability test

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 breathability



Our product has a 6 RET rating

Construction of the jacket: 3 layers

This jacket is made up of 3 layers, the best protection there is on the market: the membrane is glued between the inner and outer component layer (hence it being called 3 layers).

The membrane is a kind of very thin polyurethane film that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable.

It is protected by a mesh, and has the advantage of being softer, lighter, more robust and often more breathable than a coating.

Cut

This jacket has a fitted cut. The fabric is 13% elastane and the “raglan” sleeves up to the collar give better stretchability and more freedom of movement during your hikes.

A warm layer, such as a fleece or a light padded jacket can be worn underneath.

You can choose your usual size, or a size above if you don't want it to be worn fitted.

Hood

The adjoining hood is adjustable in height and depth thanks to an elastic drawcord. Stiff visor for maximum face protection.

The small detail that makes the difference: a triangular opening on the side of the hood for better visibility to the sides.

How do you restore the water repellent properties of your jacket?

The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use.



All the steps to restore the water-repellent properties are below:

How to look after your jacket

This jacket has taped seams (to ensure perfect waterproofing) which are vulnerable to machine washing and may peel off over time. We therefore recommend using a sponge and water to clean any marks on the jacket, and to machine wash it as little as possible at 30°C, if you want it to use it for trekking for as long as possible.

Recommended additional product

The MH500 over trousers protect the lower half of your body for a complete and effective rain protection system for your mountain outings.

Waterproofness test

Waterproofing is measured by a fabric’s resistance to water pressure expressed in mm of water column (JIS 1092 standard)

The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric.

The component of this product has a waterproof rating of 25,000 mm, i.e. it can withstand the pressure exerted by a 25,000 mm column of water.

This is also equivalent to 25 000 Schmerbers.

TESTS AND WARRANTY

Test product

Our Decathlon Sportslab laboratory, based in Lille, also contributes to the innovation and development of our Quechua products. It brings together 4 themes, each with their own area and technological tools: Morphology (especially thanks to the 3D analysis) Movement sciences Thermal comfort (with its four climatic chambers) Behavioural and sensory sciences + we describe the specific aspects of the test related to the product (e.g. shower, wind tunnel, etc.)

Warranty
