Recommended additional product
Care products: waterproof spray or wash-in waterproof liquid to restore the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise the garment’s performance throughout its lifespan.
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 pressure, the more the fabric is waterproof. Components with a 2000 mm rating can withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hours).
Waterproofing of the garment
This garment was passed following a 3-hour shower test under 100 L of water/m²/hr. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains.
Component with membrane or coating
The coating is like a layer of "paint" applied to 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 advantage of being more flexible, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than a coating.
To assess the breathability of the fabric, the evaporative resistance, RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard), is measured. The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = little or no breathability.
Breathability of the garment
In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops high-tech solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of all its hiking jackets and over-trousers. 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.
Water repellent property of the component
A fabric's water repellent property is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from absorbing water and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric is made water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (with every 3 washes). All the Quechua over-trousers have a water repellent treatment.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall rating of A to E is provided to help you easily identify the more eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type with each other (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products.

Product concept & technology
Wash at 30°C. Use liquid detergent. Do not add fabric conditioner. Close the zips and rip-tabs before washing. Restore the water repellent properties using a suitable treatment with each wash. A complete range of care products specially designed for waterproof and breathable fabrics is available in all Decathlon stores. These products will help you optimise your garment's performance throughout its lifespan.
Dry this waterproof protective garment thoroughly before storing.
Our team of designers is based at the foot of the Mont Blanc, in Space-saving region (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are attractive, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve is to test the products under the real-life conditions that you will experience.
