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.

Component waterproofing

The waterproofness of the entire jacket is measured.
The waterproofness of this fabric is 10,000mm Schmerbers: this means that it resists the pressure exerted by a 10,000mm water column (ISO standard test).
The jacket has also been validated via a shower test reproducing storm conditions, i.e. 100 L of water/sqm/hour for 3 hours.

Component breathability

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 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.

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.

Breathablility test

The breathability of a material is its capacity to wick away the water vapour generated by perspiration. During intense effort, it is, therefore, essential to wear very breathable clothing so you do not stay wet.
Breathability is measured by RET, the fabric’s evaporative resistance. The lower the number, the more breathable the fabric:

RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric
RET ≤ 20: little or no breathability

HOW TO RESTORE THE WATER-REPELLENT PROPERTIES OF MY JACKET?

The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it.
This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use.

All the steps to restore the water-repellent properties are below:
