The hood can be tightened using an elasticated cord and a stopper.
The ends of the sleeves are cuffed with an elastic binding that prevents water from entering your sleeves.
This rain cape is easy to get on and off thanks to its long front zip, by easily letting the head through.
Additional recommended products
To complement your outfit, a pair of waterproof over trousers or gaiters is recommended to protect your lower legs perfectly.
For greater breathability, the waterproof hat can also be attached to the poncho!
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Components scoring 2000 mm can resist the pressure from 2000 mm of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hours).
Waterproofing of the garment
This garment has been validated in a shower test under 60 litres of water / m² / hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
Our rain poncho and cape ranges do not come with a waterproof/breathable membrane.
Therefore, we recommend calm, gentle use to reduce perspiration rather than fast hiking!
Component water resistance
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, warm and breathable. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment needs to be renewed throughout the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes).
All Quechua ponchos and capes have a water-repellent treatment.
We recommend you use a re-waterproofing product (spray or liquid)
To renew the fabric's water repellent-properties and optimise the garment's performance throughout its lifetime.
