Micro-fleece inside the waist and on the seat for comfort/nylon around the knees for ease of movement and durability/mesh on the thighs for breathability.
Recommended additional product
Care products: waterproofing spray or liquid in the machine To renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.
We test a fabric's resistance to water pressure by measuring the height of a column of water supported by the fabric in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The better the fabric resists pressure, the more waterproof it is. 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 hour).
Waterproofing of the garment
This garment was approved in a shower test in 100 L of water/m²/hour for 3 hours. 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 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 advantage of being more supple, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than the coating.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure 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 evaporated, 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 = fabric is not breathable or has low 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 its hiking jackets and overtrousers. 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.
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua overtrousers benefit from a waterproofing treatment.
PRODUCT CONCEPT & TECHNOLOGY
Wash at 30°C. Use liquid detergent; do not add fabric conditioner. Fasten zips and rip-tabs before washing. Restore fabric water-repellent properties using a suitable treatment with each wash. All our Decathlon stores offer a complete range of products specially designed to keep fabrics water-resistant and breathable. These products improve the performance of your garment throughout its lifespan.
Always make sure that this waterproof protective garment is completely dry before storing it.
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are beautiful, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
Dear Mr Gawlowski, thank you for your time for leaving us a feedback. We are delighted to hear that you were happy with the hiking trousers. Hope to see you in our store in the near future. Have a good day. Eva, Decathlon Edinburgh
These trousers are waterproof, breathable, they are listed for hiking, but I bought them for skiing for my teenage sons, my children quickly get hot in normal material, as the sun can be very hot before Christmas and from February on up in the mountains. These trousers are light weight, the material has got a fantastic touch, colour and they have outside zippers up to the side pockets which makes it easy to put them over ski boots, they wear EU size 46 and 48, 46 is L-XL, 48 is XL and they fit perfectly. The only thing is, inside at the bottom of the trousers are no cuffs, it's not possible because of the zip. If you would do sledding in these trousers, snow would come up along your boots, as you have your feet always next to your sledge on the ground. The boys will also wear on those freezing days one of Decathlon's long johns under it.
