Fit and sizing information
Good coverage for hikers between 156 and 166 cm in height in size XS between 167 and 176 cm in size S/M between 177 and 190 cm in size L/XL and wearing a backpack with a capacity of 0 to 40 litres. The hood can be tightened using an elasticated cord and a stopper. The ends of the sleeves are cuffed with an elastic binding that prevents water from entering your sleeves. This rain cape is easy to get on and off thanks to its long front zip, by easily letting the head through.
Additional recommended products
To complement your outfit, a pair of waterproof over trousers or gaiters is recommended to protect your lower legs perfectly. For greater breathability, the waterproof hat can also be attached to the poncho!
The resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Components with a 2,000 mm rating can withstand the pressure of a 2,000 mm column of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours).
Waterproofing of the garment
This garment has been validated in a shower test under 60 litres of water / m² / hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test 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 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. RET of this cape = 11.
Water-repellent property of the component
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. As a result, the fabric does not soak up water and stays light, breathable and warm. A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be renewed throughout the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes). All Quechua ponchos and capes have a water-repellent treatment.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and using various indicators. An overall ABCDE score is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type (t-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to displaying environmental information about its products. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
We recommend you use a re-waterproofing product (spray or liquid) To renew the fabric's water repellent-properties and optimise the garment's performance throughout its lifetime.
Long-term storage: dry thoroughly and fold in its bag.
