    Stitches came out in 3days of use.

    I'm the fan of brand Quechua, Im using shoe, jacket, rucksack bag and many other products from more than 7 year now. I'm very satisfied customer till then. In November I brought Quechua snow jacket for my Himalayan trekking The jacket was good till first day end.
    On second day he stitch came out. And full 5 day trekking expedition I suffered could and wind badly because
    temperature is raining from -9 to-14. I'm very upset with this jacket and the brand. I'm hardly used the jacket for week. I'm not suggesting this anyone. Be careful stitches are not up to the mark for the price what we pay.

    Brand's answer :

    Thanks for the feedback on the Quechua SH500 jacket and I apologise for the inconvenience and discomfort caused. This particular jacket has not been designed for such expeditions. With it featuring in our snow hiking range, it is designed for lowland day walks in snowy conditions/terrain. Furthermore, it isn't designed to be worn with large trekking rucksacks so will not be as durable as a specific trekking jacket. If you are looking for durable and highly resistant trekking jackets, then check out our trekking range ( We produce compact, lightweight and warm mid layers for insulation as well as durable and waterproof outer jackets designed to be used in severe conditions as well as with rucksacks.

PRODUCT TEST Our design team is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are beautiful, 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.
We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: a test on our fleece's fabric or a test on the thermal mannequin in a thermal chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains when walking at 5 km/h. These tests are used to validate our design choices. In this way, we can tailor the thermal insulation to the areas most exposed to the cold.

protecting you from wintry conditions when hiking on snowy terrain.

Storage Tips
Always make sure that this waterproof protective garment is completely dry before storing it.Store in a dry, ventilated place.


This jacket is sized to be worn with a warm second layer, such as a light down jacket or fleece, underneath.
Outer: 2 pockets under the flaps that close with press-studs, lined with fleece that is very soft and very warm for the hands. Inside: 1 secure pocket closed with a zip.
Elastic draw-cords and toggles.
Velcro tab fasteners.
We test a fabric's resistance to water pressure by measuring the height of a column of water supported by the fabric in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The better the fabric resists pressure, the more waterproof it is. Components with a 2000 mm rating can withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hour).
This garment has been shower-tested using 60 litres of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a rain shower in winter.
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water repellent treatment.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure 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 < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9<RET<12 = very breathable fabric / 12<RET<20 = breathable fabric / RET>20 = little or no breathability.
Care products: waterproof spray or liquid in the machine to renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifetime of your garment.
