One adjustment, just one movement to adjust the hood! 3-point adjustment system (height, depth and volume) thanks to 1 single elastic drawcord + tightening. Deep, enveloping hood for excellent comfort. Visor for maximum face protection.
JACKET STRUCTURE / 3 LAYERS
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.
The waterproof rating is measured by the fabric's resistance to water pressure expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. The component of this product has a waterproof rating of 15,000 mm, i.e. it can withstand the pressure exerted by a 15,000 mm column of water. This is also equivalent to 15 000 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 our mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.
HOW TO RESTORE THE JACKET'S WATER-REPELLENCE?
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: https://conseilsport.decathlon.fr/conseils/comment-reactiver-la-deperlance-de-sa-veste-tp_22965

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH
Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products. Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
A product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators. A score from A to E is produced to help you make a responsible choice. This rating is used to easily identify the products with the best environmental performance. This is done by making a comparison between products of the same family (e.g. backpacks). Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of this environmentally-friendly labelling approach.
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.)
