Hydrophilic coating (RET=12): reduces condensation in the garment.
Only 232 g in size 3-4 years
Ripstop component to withstand small adventurers. 2-year guarantee.
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.A waterproof rating of 2 000 mm means the fabric can withstand pressure exerted by 2 000 mm of water (the equivalent of a rain shower lasting for two hours).Waterproofing is expressed in schmerbers (for example: 2 000 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 or no breathability
Durability of the components
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.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The environmental impact of the product is calculated based on its full life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE mark is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc). Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of this environmentally-friendly labelling approach. For more info: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
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.
Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.
PRODUCT DESIGN: OUR EXPERTISE
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc.) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for designing our mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.
1/ Machine wash (30 to 40°C): fasten hook and loop tabs and zips, use gentle detergent. 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/ Do not use bleach or fabric softener
5/ Rinse thoroughly followed by a gentle spin cycle.
6/ Dry either on a washing line or in the drier (minimum temperature & duration)
