We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed as a water column of mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the greater the waterproof properties of the fabric. Components scoring 2000 mm can resist the pressure from 2000 mm of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hour). Waterproofing is expressed in schmerbers (for example: 2000 schmerbers).
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 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.
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. Fabric is made water repellent by applying a treatment to the outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (with every or 3 washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water repellent treatment.
Coating applied to the fabric makes it waterproof and windproof. Waterproof fabric has the necessary technical characteristics to be considered windproof. Protection from the wind is critical, as whether playing sports or at rest, wind can chill the body significantly.

The environmental impact of the product is calculated based on the product's full life cycle using different indicators. A general mark ABCDE is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (t-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc). Decathlon's environmental display approach is voluntary. For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
