Additional recommended products
Forclaz Rain overtrousers for protecting the lower body to complete an effective rain protection outfit designed for mountain walks. Care products: waterproof spray or wash-in waterproof liquid, to restore the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise your garment's performance throughout its lifetime.
8
Waterproof component
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the higher the waterproof rating of the fabric. Components with a 2000 mm waterproof rating can support the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hours.
9
Waterproof garment
This garment was passed following a 3-hour shower test under 100 L of water/m²/hr. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains.
10
Breathable component
In addition to the breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of all its jackets and overtrousers designed for long-distance hiking use (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems regulate the temperature inside the garment and help eliminate the perspiration generated by the body during exercise.
11
Membrane or coated component
The coating is like a layer of "paint" applied on the underside of the fabric to make it waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less costly than a membrane, and requires a lining for protection. The membrane is like a very fine plastic film (polyurethane) making the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being more flexible, lightweight and durable, and often more breathable than a coating.
12
3-layer, 2-layer or 2.5-layer component
3 layers: the membrane is bonded between the outer and inner layer of the component. This construction prolongs the life of the membrane and enhances the component's performance. 2 layers: the membrane is only bonded to the outer fabric, while the inner protective lining is loose. This construction costs less but is generally more cumbersome. 2.5 layers: the membrane is protected on the inside by a kind of varnish coating rather than an actual layer to make it as lightweight as possible
13
Water-repellent component
A fabric's water repellent property is its capacity to repel water so that it runs off its surface. This prevents the fabric from absorbing water and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric is made water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (with every 3 washes). All the Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.

Very very very very very good jacket.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Best quality in very low cost.
Nearly perfect
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
The waterproofing is very good. I've taken it out for walks in pouring rain and it remains dry after an hour. There are just two issues though that make it merit only a four star rating, one minor and one major:

Minor: the tape seams aren't perfect and are the first to leak after about 45 minutes.

Major: the orange lining on the inner bottom side is water absorbing. Water that slides off the front on to your trousers will be absorbed by this lining and will then travel up to the pockets, which are not waterproof on the inside. If you put your phone there, it WILL get wet. You must put your phone in a plastic pouch or in the chest pocket further up.

I wish the lining was water repellent or the pockets were internally waterproof. Either would have avoided this problem.

Response of the brand
Hello Nikhilesh Nayak,

Thanks for your feedback on the Forclaz 400 rain jacket.

The Forclaz 400 rain jacket is a hard shell or the outer most jacket a user wears when he is on the mountains. It does not provide any warmth, the usage of this jacket is to protect a person from rain and wind, the fabric is 10000 mm waterproof when tested in the water column test generally used to test the waterproofing of a fabric. It is also a stretch fabric which enables more comfort when a user wears it.

It would be great if you could let me know your usage so that I can suggest you the right product according to your requirement,

Sportively,
Sandeep NAIR

Bad build quality
Used for More than 1 year
The seams started to come apart after a couple of wears. I exchanged my jacket for a new one and the same thing happened with the new one too. Not sure what to do now. I wear the jacket under my motorcycle riding gear so there can't be a lot of pressure applied to the rain jacket itself.
Keeps you dry for light to medium showers
The seams give away after a few wears
Response of the brand
Thanks for the valuable feedback. We are extremely sorry to hear the problems you faced with the jacket. We believe that this is a product defect due to the incorrect application of the seam tape. We have identified the batch and have started to recall all the jackets. We would gladly provide you with a replacement(which is of better quality and a higher level of waterproofing- 10,000mm) or a refund. This is the Jacket represented on the page, the only difference with aesthetics is that the new one has Orange coloured Zippers & a double Zipper. Once again we are sorry for the inconvenience caused and hope that you would continue being a loyal customer.

I'm 6'4" / 95kg and buy shirts with 38"
/XL sleeves, I'm really happy with this jacket as the cuffs come well over my wrists.
Very impressed with the quality and style of this jacket for the price point. It's kept me dry and warm with all the storms and cold winds that December/January have thrown at it, not spent a day hiking in mountain rain yet to truly test it though.
Rain coat.

Used for More than 1 year
I have this jacket since April 2016, and I'm using it almost daily, still being waterproof but the chest pocket was glued with what it looks like a similar tape used on the stitches and it failed very quickly after a month or two, almost damaging my phone in the process, because i was using that pocket just to carry my phone in it.
Big design failure.
