Technical Information

1
Component waterproofing
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. Components scoring 2000 mm can resist the pressure from 2000 mm of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hours). Waterproofing is expressed in schmerbers (for example: 2000 schmerbers). This data is applicable to the item before washing.
2
Windproof effect
Coating applied to the fabric makes it waterproof and windproof. Waterproof fabric has the necessary technical characteristics to be considered windproof. Protection from the wind is critical, as whether playing sports or at rest, wind can chill the body significantly.
3
Component breathability
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 12 RET rating

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY
We have improved this product with an eco-design approach. During the design phase, we optimised the placement of the different parts of the jacket in the roll of material (minimal waste) in order to reduce offcuts. We use a bi-tone technique for the jacket's inner lining. Finally, the main component is made from up to 74% recycled materials.

OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we only colour every other thread, reducing our water consumption and impact.

Product design: our expertise
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 great asset for designing your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.

Test
To meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested in the mountains in conditions you will encounter during your hikes. Sarah, our Field Test Engineer, as well as a panel of child testers, test the products throughout their development until they’re offered for sale.

Product test
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: Body shape (3D analysis in particular) Movement science Thermal comfort (with its four climatic chambers) Behavioural and sensory sciences
