LEVEL OF PRACTICE
Waterproofing of the garment
This garment was approved following a test in a 60 L/sqm/h shower of water lasting one hour. This test replicates the conditions of a rain shower. The fabric of this jacket is water repellent: this is its capacity to make water run off its surface without seeping in. As a result, the fabric does not soak up water and stays lightweight and breathable. This is accomplished by treating the outer surface of the fabric. What's more, the main seams that are most exposed to the rain are taped.
How to maintain the waterproof properties of the jacket over time
To maintain the waterproofing over time, the water repellent properties of the fabric must be reactivated: we recommend doing this every 3 washes or after wearing the garment about 10 times in the rain. After each wash, the garment must be thoroughly rinsed after which the water repellent properties can be easily restored: for a short period of time in a tumble dryer or with a hair-dryer, for example. You will find all the advice you need in the instructions of the product details.

Waterproof rating expressed in mm or Schmerber
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the higher the waterproof rating of the fabric. A component with a waterproof rating of 2000 mm means that the fabric can withstand the pressure exerted by a 2000 mm column of water
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 evaporates, 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.
The environmental impact of each product is calculated for the product's entire life cycle using different indicators. A general ABCDE rating is attributed to help you identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing similar types of product to each other (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to displaying environmental information. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
Make sure this waterproof garment is always perfectly dry before putting it away.
All our models are tested by users representative of our target market in conditions identical to those you will encounter when using them. We believe that testing in real life scenarios is the only way to continuously improve the technical suitability and design of our QUECHUA products.
