This garment has been tested in a 60L water/sqm/hour shower for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower. The fabric of these over-trousers is water-repellent: this is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. As a result, the fabric does not soak up the water and remains lightweight and breathable. The water-repellent effect is achieved by treating the outer surface of the fabric. What's more, all the seams are taped.
How to maintain the waterproofing of your jacket over the long term
The fabric's water repellent properties must be reactivated in order to preserve long-lasting effective waterproofing: we recommend that this is done every 3 washes or after wearing a dozen times in the rain. After washing, the garment must be thoroughly rinsed, after which the water repellent properties can be easily reactivated by warming: in a tumble dryer or with a hairdryer for a relatively short period. You will find all our advice in the instructions of this product data sheet.
Waterproof rating expressed in mm or Schmerber
We measure a fabric's capacity to support a column of water expressed in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a 2000 mm waterproof rating can therefore withstand the pressure exerted by 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 resistance of the fabric, the more water vapour generated by body movements is allowed to escape and hence the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
All our products are field-tested by typical users under the same conditions as you would encounter in use. Indeed, we believe that testing in real-life conditions is the only way to create and continuously improve the technical suitability and design of our QUECHUA products.
Dry this waterproof protective garment thoroughly before storing.

In order to maintain good waterproofing, the fabric's water repellent properties must be reactivated: we recommend doing this every 3 washes or after a dozen uses in the rain. After washing, the product must be rinsed thoroughly and then the water repellent property is easily reactivated by warming the fabric: either in your tumble dryer or with a hair dryer, for example, over a relatively short period.

We measure the resistance of a fabric to water pressure expressed in mm of water column (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with an impermeability of 2000mm therefore resists a pressure exerted by 2000mm of water
To find out if a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity can escape, hence the higher the fabric's breathability. RET
On a scale from A to E, this jacket was given a score of A. The environmental impacts of our products are calculated over their entire life cycle. A score is given to each product in order to identify the most eco-friendly products within a particular product family (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products. For more information, go to: https://youtu.be/8t63KkRwn_8
Our teams work to find innovative processes that reduce water consumption or water pollution during the production process. The "dope dye" (bulk dying) process saves up to 60% of water and significantly reduces the amount of Co2 emitted. This also reduces colour fading over time. As of 2019, we are now using this new procedure on these over-trousers.
During sports, 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 over-trousers. You feel damp inside: this is condensing perspiration vapour, rather than rain getting inside. You therefore need to choose over-trousers according to your type of physical activity. This model is designed for a one-day at a rate of 5 km/h max.
Our over-trousers come with a 2-year guarantee. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your nature hikes. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still continuing!
Always make sure that this waterproof protective garment is completely dry before storing it.
It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up and designed Quechua pdts. We test them in the laboratory and in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and waterproof. Whether it is in forests, on the coast or in the countryside in rainy weather, etc., we cover as many different paths as possible. These experiences were highly beneficial for us, allowing us to hear your feedback & start thinking about our future collections!
