Thermal comfort and Windproof
Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold! With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°C. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They form a windproof barrier and efficiently reduce heat loss.
Water-repellency of the component (different to waterproofing)
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water, so that it stays lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (with every 3 washes).
To find out if a fabric is breathable, its total evaporation resistance RET (test based on ISO 11092), is measured. The lower the resistance of the fabric, the more water vapour generated by body movements is allowed to escape and hence the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
Breathability of the garment
In addition to breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overtrousers designed for great hiking use (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems allow both temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.
Always make sure that this waterproof protective garment is completely dry before storing it.
Our team of designers is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in the Haute-Savoie region (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are attractive, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve is to test the products under the real-life conditions that you will experience.
