2-layer coated component with mesh lining
- A coating is like a kind of paint applied to the inside of the fabric that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less costly than a membrane, and requires a lining for protection. - The membrane is a kind of very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being more flexible, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than a coating.
- 3 layers: The membrane is glued between the outer and inner fabric. Used for tough, high-performance jackets -2.5 layers: The membrane is glued under the outer fabric and protected inside by a fine film. Used for lightweight jackets .- 2 layers: the membrane is glued only to the outer fabric; the inner protective lining is free. Used for comfortable jackets
The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in terms of the height in mm of a water column (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a 5000 mm waterproof rating, i.e. it can withstand the pressure of the 5000 mm column of water. This is also equivalent to 5000 Schmerbers.
This garment has been validated in a shower test under 60 L of water / sqm / hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.

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 can escape and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET ≤ 3 = extremely breathable fabric RET ≤ 6= very breathable fabric RET ≤ 12= breathable fabric RET ≤ 20 = little breathability
Water-repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it.In this way, fabric does not get waterlogged & remains light, breathable & warm.Water-repellent property is obtained by applying treatment to outer surface of fabric.It needs to be renewed during the lifetime of garment (we recommend every 3 washes).

The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) with each other. Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
Always make sure that this waterproof protective garment is completely dry before storing it.
Our team of designers is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are attractive, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real-world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
