This jacket has a fitted cut. Its stretchy fabric allows you greater freedom of movement when you're hiking. A warm layer, such as a fleece or a light padded jacket can be worn underneath.
You can choose your usual size, or a size above if you don't want it to be worn fitted.
Quick-adjusting, 3D hood
One adjustment, just one movement to adjust the hood! 3-point adjustment system (height, depth and volume) thanks to 1 single elastic drawcord + tightening.
Deep, enveloping hood for excellent comfort.
Visor for maximum face protection.
JACKET STRUCTURE / 3 LAYERS
This jacket is made up of 3 layers, the best protection there is on the market: the membrane is glued between the inner and outer component layer (hence it being called 3 layers).
The membrane is a kind of very thin polyurethane film that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable.
It is protected by knitted fabric and has the advantage of being softer, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than a coating.
HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR JACKET
This jacket has taped seams (to ensure perfect waterproofing) which are vulnerable to machine washing and may peel off over time. We therefore recommend using a sponge and water to clean any marks on the jacket, and to machine wash it as little as possible at 30°C, if you want it to use it for trekking for as long as possible.
Waterproofing is measured by a fabric’s resistance to water pressure expressed in mm of water column (JIS 1092 standard).
The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric.
The component of this product has a waterproof rating of 25,000 mm, i.e. it can withstand the pressure exerted by a 25,000 mm column of water.
This is also equivalent to 25 000 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 6 RET rating
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 your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.
HOW TO RESTORE THE JACKET'S WATER-REPELLENCE?
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use.
All the steps to restore the water-repellent properties are below:
