Technical Information

1
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
In addition to the large quantity of water consumed to dye the textiles, waste water is discharged from the dyeing baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced.

Water repellent properties without using perfluorocarbons
The fabric of this jacket is water repellent: it lets water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. We have started to use a water repellent treatment without perfluorocarbons. Consequently, over the course of 2022, this model will be marketed with a water-repellent treatment that is more respectful of the environment.

Jacket with long-lasting performance
To maintain a durable 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 a tumble dryer for 15 minutes (synthetic program) - with a hair dryer at a distance of 20 cm by going back and forth twice - or two passes with an iron on the delicate setting without the steam function.
4
Water resistance of the fabric
The fabric of this jacket has a waterproof rating of 2000mm. We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a waterproof rating of 2,000 mm can therefore withstand the pressure exerted by a 2,000 mm water column.
5
Fabric breathability
The fabric of this jacket is breathable: RET = 12.To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its total evaporative resistance (RET) based on the ISO 11092 standard. The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability. - RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric - 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric - 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric - RET > 20 = little or no breathability

Choosing your waterproof jacket according to your level of physical effort
This rain jacket was designed for 2-h hikes walking at a pace of no more than 5km/h, without elevation gains During sports activity, perspiration depends on the intensity or the duration of the physical effort If the breathability of the fabric is not adapted to the type of physical activity, the perspiration vapour condenses inside the jacket You will feel damp insideIt's not rain coming through but perspiration vapour condensing Choose a rain jacket according to the type of physical activity.

Additional recommended products
Wear the Raincut waterproof over-trousers to protect your lower body as well. You will then have a comprehensive protection system that is very effective against the wind and showers. And, first and foremost: An eco-design method was also applied in the production of the overtrousers, i.e. the bulk dyeing process.

Test
To fulfil your needs, the Quechua products are tested in the country under the conditions that you will come across during your hikes. Our teams, along with a panel of testers (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers), test the products throughout their development right up until they are marketed.

Product test
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. A significant advantage for designing high-quality products for hiking and giving you access to all our expertise.
