Technical information


This jacket has a fitted cut. The fabric is 13% elastane and the “raglan” sleeves up to the collar give better stretchability and more freedom of movement during your hikes.
A warm layer, such as a fleece or a light padded jacket can be worn underneath.
You can choose your usual size, or a size above if you don't want it to be worn fitted.


The adjoining hood is adjustable in height and depth thanks to an elastic drawcord. Stiff visor for maximum face protection.
The small detail that makes the difference: a triangular opening on the side of the hood for better visibility to the sides.


This jacket is made up of 3 layers, the best protection there is on the market: the membrane is glued between the inner and outer component layer (hence it being called 3 layers).
The membrane is a kind of very thin polyurethane film that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable.
It is protected by knitted fabric and has the advantage of being softer, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than a coating.


This jacket has taped seams (to ensure perfect waterproofing) which are vulnerable to machine washing and may peel off over time. We therefore recommend using a sponge and water to clean any marks on the jacket, and to machine wash it as little as possible at 30°C, if you want it to use it for trekking for as long as possible.


The waterproof properties are measured by the resistance of a fabric to water pressure expressed in water column mm (test based on the JIS 1092 standard).
The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric.
This product's component has a 20,000 mm waterproof rating, and it can withstand the pressure of a 20,000 mm water column.
This is also equivalent to 20000 Schmerbers.


Component breathability is measured by its thermal evaporative resistance (RET).
This is its capacity to let water vapour generated by the body during physical activity escape and therefore avoid water accumulating on the skin.
The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric.

RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric
RET ≤ 20: little breathability

Our product has a 6 RET rating

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.


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:


The MH500 over trousers protect the lower half of your body for a complete and effective rain protection system for your mountain outings.


Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products. Thanks to a more high-tech component, our MH500 jackets are lighter, reducing their CO2 emissions by 28% on average.
This is still not enough and that's why we are working to make this jacket 100% eco-designed one day.

Always make sure that this waterproof protective garment is completely dry before storing it.


Our Decathlon Sportslab laboratory, based in Lille, also contributes to the innovation and development of our Quechua products.
It brings together 4 themes, each with their own area and technological tools:
Morphology (especially thanks to the 3D analysis)
Movement sciences
Thermal comfort (with its four climatic chambers)
Behavioural and sensory sciences
+ we describe the specific aspects of the test related to the product (e.g. shower, wind tunnel, etc.)

Approved By

To meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested in the mountains in conditions you will encounter during your hikes.
Our teams, as well as a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers), test products throughout their development until they go to market.
