Hydrophilic coating (RET=12): limits condensation inside the garment.
Mesh pockets that can also provide ventilation.
Fastening drawcord at jacket bottom. Depth/height-adjustable, detachable hood
4 secure pockets. One inner chest pocket, one outside. 2 hand pockets.
610 g in size M.
Water repellent treatment applied to fabric to prevent water saturation
Close-fitting feminine cut. Sized so that it can be worn over a warm second layer such as a light pullover or fleece.
Removable using press studs. Height can be adjusted using an elastic drawcord and toggles. Adjustable depth using a rip-tab positioned at the back of the hood. Shape memory visor provides good face protection.
Jacket hem drawcord
Elastic draw-cords and toggles.
Velcro tab fasteners.
2 hand pockets + 1 chest pocket + 1 inner pocket. These 4 pockets have zips.
Dual-material lining: mesh upper body to enhance the garment's breathability/nylon around the hips and sleeves to optimise ease of movement and resistance to wear.
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed as a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A waterproof rating of 2000 mm means that the fabric can withstand the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (the equivalent of nearly a two hour downpour).
This garment has been shower-tested using 60 litres of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity is able to evaporate, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 920 = little or no breathability.
Component with coating or a membrane
Coating: like a layer of "paint" applied on the underside of the fabric to make it waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less costly than a membrane, and requires a lining for protection.
The membrane: is like a very fine plastic film (polyurethane) making the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the edge, being more supple, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than coating.
Water repellent component
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. The fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
Additional recommended products
Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine. Helps renew fabric's water-repellent properties and optimise your garment performance throughout its life.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is allocated to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).

PRODUCT CONCEPT & TECHNOLOGY
Wash at 30°C. Use liquid detergent; do not add fabric conditioner. Fasten zips and rip-tabs before washing. Renew fabric's water repellent properties using a suitable treatment each time you wash. All our Decathlon stores offer a complete range of products specially designed to care for water-resistant and breathable fabrics. These products will help you optimise your garment's performance throughout its lifespan.
Always make sure that this waterproof protective garment is completely dry before storing it.
Quechua is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in the Haute-Savoie region (France). All year round, our design teams create and develop products that are appealing, simple, and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field in collaboration with our technical partners and mountain professionals, as well as our target users in the most demanding of conditions.
Bought black jacket, seems good quality but size L is too small for my size 16 top frame. It is too small on the arms/shoulders. Very lightweight and would be good for travelling but I need to return it. The Velcro strips on the front are unnecessary.
I’ve spent years working outside and have spent a fortune on costs but this one stayed waterproof all day despite pouring down. Quite boxy shape for women but performance out weighs this. Plenty of pockets and a hood that stays up
