Hydrophilic coating ,in addition to the breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilations, mesh sections...) which improve the overall ventilation of all its jackets designed for long hiking use.To find out whether a fabric is breathable, the resistance of evaporation of a textile, RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard) is used as a measure. The weaker the resistance, the greater the fabric's capacity to transfer the water vapour generated by the body through the fabric, thereby making it more breathable.
NOVADRY waterproof membrane (5000 mm).This garment has been tested under a shower of 100 litres of water per hour per m² for 4 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a severe mountain storm. The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is measured by the height of a column of water in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more the fabric is waterproof.
Care Instructions :
Machine-wash at 30°C. Use a liquid washing detergent and do not use softener. Close all zips and riptapes before washing. Renew the water-resistance of your garment by using a suitable coating every 2-3 washes. A full range of products specially designed to treat waterproof and breathable fabrics is available in all Decathlon stores.
