Additional recommended products
"Rain-Cut Pant" overtrousers or waterproof leggings for complete protection for the lower legs and provide comprehensive and highly effective protection from the wind and rain showers. Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine. To regenerate the fabric's water repellency and optimize the performance of your garment throughout its lifespan.
The resistance of a fabric is measured at a water pressure expressed in mm of water column (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a waterproofness of 2000 mm therefore resists the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (which corresponds approximately to a rain shower lasting 2 hours).
Waterproofing of the clothing
Technologies: this garment has been subjected to a shower test using 60 litres 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 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 = little or no breathability.
Water repellent component
The water repellency of a fabric is its ability to let water run off its surface, without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. Water repellency is obtained by a treatment applied to the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be repeated throughout the product's life (we recommend every 3 washes). All Quechua waterproof ponchos and capes have received a water repellent treatment.
A grade to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impacts of the product are calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An ABCDE grade system has been made to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type to each other (T-shirts, pants, backpacks,…). Decathlon is a voluntary participant of this environmental display process. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
