How does Decathlon measure waterproofing? At Decathlon, we don't just consider the intrinsic quality of the component (in this instance, a fabric with a 20,000 rating) but we also test the waterproof qualities of the finished product in an environmental chamber with reproduces different levels of precipitation. This hat can withstand 12 cm of rainfall in a 2 hour period, or 60L of water per sqm/h: quite a downpour!
Ripstop is a mesh-type fabric. The warp and weft design helps ensure durability and prevent potential tears.
The entire design team was able to test this hat during frequent excursions in the Mont Blanc mountain range, where Forclaz -- Decathlon's trekking brand - has its offices.
