WATERPROOF FEATURE OF THE COMPONENT
This clothing was validated in a shower test using 60 L/sqm/hr of water for 1 hour. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
A component with a waterproof rating of 5,000 mm can withstand the pressure exerted by a 5,000 mm column of water (which is roughly equivalent to a 1 hour rain shower).
Waterproofing is expressed in schmerbers (for example: 5 000 schmerbers).
Component breathability is measured by its thermal evaporative resistance (RET).
This is its capacity to let water vapour generated by the body during physical activity escape and therefore avoid water accumulating on the skin.
The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric.
RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric
RET ≤ 20: little breathability
Our product has a 12 RET rating
Can be stored in the pocket. Central zip opening, elasticated hood, wrists and waistband
Resistance to wear and abrasion test: for example, we check that our fleeces do not pill using tests conducted in laboratories. Colour retention test: the colour fastness is verified to ensure that the colours do not bleed when coming into contact with saliva. Ageing test: repeated washing should not affect the fabric's properties, behaviour, thickness or appearance.
1/ Machine wash (30°C): gentle washing product. Wash jackets and trousers inside out. Loosen straps and elastics. 2/ Avoid folding the garment too much in the washing machine: this can damage it. 3/ Do not mix clothing styles and colours. 4/ Don't use bleach. 5/ Choose a full rinse and gentle spin cycle. 6/ Either line or tumble dry (low temperature, short cycle).
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH
Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products.

WHERE DO OUR JACKETS COME FROM?
This jacket was designed in our international design centre, at the foot of Mont Blanc in France, and then manufactured by our suppliers in Bangladesh and Ethiopia.
These are partners that have genuine expertise in making our tents and with whom we are in close collaboration.
Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.
