We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed in mm of the water jet (tests based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. A waterproof rating of 2000mm means the fabric can withstand pressure exerted by 2000mm of water (the equivalent of a rain shower lasting for two hours).
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by an active body is evaporated, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric/920 = little or no breathability.
Water repellence :
Water repellency is a fabric's ability to let water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. Water repellency is achieved through a treatment applied to the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every wash). Water-repellent treatment products are available in our stores. All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
Care Instructions :
Wash at 30°C. Use liquid detergent; do not add fabric softener. Fasten zips and rip-tabs before washing. Renew the water proofing by using an appropriate treatment during each wash. A range of products specially designed to help you care for waterproof and breathable fabrics is available in all Decathlon stores. These products will help you optimise your garment's performance and longevity.
