Waterproof coating (2000 mm). 100% waterproof seams
Waterproofing of the garment
This garment has been shower-tested using 60 liters of water/sqm/hour for 2 hrs. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower. The fabric of these overpants has water-repellent properties:this is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. As a result, the fabric does not soak up water & stays light & breathable. The water-repellent effect is achieved by using a treatment applied to the outer surface of the fabric. In addition, we sealed 100% of the seams
How to maintain the waterproofing of your jacket in the long-term
In order to maintain good waterproofing, the fabric's water-repellent properties must be reactivated: we recommend doing this every 3 washes or after a dozen uses in the rain. After washing, the product must be rinsed thoroughly and then the water-repellent property is easily reactivated by warming the fabric: either in your tumble dryer or with a hair dryer, for example, over a relatively short period. You will find all our advice in the instructions of this product data sheet.
Measurement of the 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 the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with an impermeability of 2000 mm therefore resists a pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water
To find out if a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor generated by physical activity can escape, hence the higher the fabric's breathability. RET<9 = extremely breathable fabric 9
Our impact on the environment
On a scale from A to E, this jacket was given a score of A. The environmental impacts of our products are 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 information of its products. For more information, go to: https://youtu.be/8t63KkRwn_8
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. As of 2019, we are now using this new procedure on these over-pants.
How should I choose my waterproof jacket according to my sports discipline and the intensity of my 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 overpants. You feel damp inside: this is condensing perspiration vapor, rather than rain getting inside. You therefore need to choose overpants according to your type of physical activity. This model is designed for a 1-day at a rate of 3 mph max.
Our overpants come with a 2-year guarantee. 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!
It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up & designed Quechua products. We test them in the laboratory & in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable & 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. These experiences were highly beneficial for us, allowing us to hear your feedback and start thinking about our future collections!
