Our environmental approach
Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products.
Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.
This garment has been validated in a shower test under 100 L/m²/hr of water for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains.
Aside from the breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, air holes, mesh, etc) to improve overall ventilation of all its jackets. These ventilation systems allow you to regulate the temperature inside the garment and also to facilitate the transfer of perspiration generated by the body during physical effort.
Component with coating or a membrane
A coating is like a kind of paint applied to the inside of the fabric that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less costly than a membrane, and requires a lining for protection. The membrane is a kind of very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being more flexible, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than a coating.
Jacket with a membrane.
Jacket 2.5 layers
The FH500 jacket has a 2½ layer membrane, protected inside by a kind of varnish rather than a real layer for maximum lightness.
