A fabric's resistance to water pressure is measured by the height of a column of water that can be supported by the fabric in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. 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 of the garment
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 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.
This cape has an RET = 12.
Component water resistance
A fabric's water repellent property is its capacity to make water run off its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. The fabric is made water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be restored throughout the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes).
All of Quechua's ponchos and capes have a water repellent treatment.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators.
An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing them with products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.)
