WATERPROOFING OF THE GARMENT
This garment was validated in a shower test using 60 litres of water/sqm/hour for 1 hrThis test reproduces the average conditions of a shower.The fabric of this jacket is water-repellent, water runs off the surface without seeping in.This prevents the fabric from becoming waterlogged, and keeps it lightweight and breathable.The water repellent property is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of the fabric.In addition, we have taped the main seams, those most exposed to the rain.
HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN THE WATER-RESISTANCE OF YOUR JACKET OVER TIME?
In order to maintain good water-resistance over time, the fabric's water repellent properties must be regularly reactivated. We recommend doing this every three washes or after a dozen uses in the rain. The waterproof property can be easily restored by heating the fabric: either in your tumble dryer or with a hair dryer, for example, over a relatively short period. If you are washing it, it must be thoroughly rinsed.
MEASUREMENT OF THE WATERPROOF RATING EXPRESSED IN MM OR SCHMERBER
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. A component with a 2000 mm waterproof rating can therefore withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its total evaporative resistance (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. - RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric - 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric - 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric -RET > 20 = little or no breathability
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WATERPROOF JACKET ACCORDING TO YOUR ACTIVITY AND PHYSICAL EFFORT?
When we are doing sport, the extent to which we perspire depends on the intensity or duration of the physical activity. If the breathability of the fabric is not adapted to your type of physical activity, the perspiration vapour condenses inside the jacket. You feel damp inside: this isn't rain getting through, but condensation from sweat. You need to choose a rain jacket according to your physical activity level. This raincoat has been designed for 2-hour hikes at no more than 5km/h.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
On a scale of A to E, this jacket obtained a B rating. The environmental impacts of our products are calculated over their entire life cycle. A rating from A to E is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing and contrasting products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks). Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating initiative. For more information, go to: https://youtu.be/8t63KkRwn_8
MAKING DYES MORE ECO-FRIENDLY
Our teams work to find innovative processes that reduce water consumption or water pollution during the production process. The dope dyeing (bulk dying) technique reduces water consumption by 60% and significantly reduces the amount of CO2 emitted. This also reduces colour fading over time. Since 2019, we have started using the process on the navy colour (while we learn to master the technique on other colours).
ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS
We recommend the NH500 Waterproof Trousers to protect your lower body too. This way, you will have a complete protective outfit that is very effective against the wind and rain. And, most importantly: we have also started using a more environmentally friendly dyeing process on these over-trousers since 2019!
Our hiking jackets and rain jackets are guaranteed for 2 years. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your off-road hikes and walks. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still continuing!
We recommend that you always ensure this rain jacket is perfectly dry before storing it away.
All our models are tested by hikers that are representative of our target market under the same conditions as those you will encounter in real-life use. We believe that carrying out 'real-life' testing is the only way to design and continuously advance the technical relevance and design of all our Quechua products.
