7
Additional recommended products
Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine. To boost fabric water-repellency and optimise your garment's performance throughout its life.
8
Waterproof component
We measure a fabric's resistance to a column of water in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. A waterproof rating of 2000 mm means the fabric can withstand the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (the equivalent of a rain shower lasting for two hours).
9
Waterproof garment
Technologies: this garment has been subjected to a shower test using 60 litres of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
10
Component breathability
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 physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
11
Component with coating or a membrane
Coating: 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 edge, being more supple, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than coating.
12
Water repellent component
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. The fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua waterproof overtrousers have received a water repellent treatment

Bought it for the daily commute on my bike for this rainy season. The fit is good. Love that even in harsh wind with rain I could easily use this and make my way on the road quite comfortably. dries off really soon. love the pockets. its worth buying for the travel as well as for hiking. cant wait to try this during hiking.

good product. NO complaints.
This jacket is not 100% waterproof
Used for More than 1 year
As mentioned I thought this jacket is waterproof. But I was wrong, the water was entering form zip line. An my phone went useless because of water. An the material on the collar stinks.
Strongly recommended
Used for 1 week or less
I just got it three weeks before and I was waiting to test it. Few days ago when it rained heavily, I used it. I was in a downpour for half an hour and not a drop entered inside. The best thing is, it kept me cool. Normally the other rain jackets makes me feel sweaty, this one kept me cool. And the inner chest pocket accommodated a large smart phone.
Weight, breathable fabric, looks good
Hood is large and it obstructs the vision.
water seeps through sidezip while trekking in rain
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I bought this product after enquiring a lot in decathlon store since I am a regular trekker across western ghats. But i was disappointed by quality of product since i bought this product with intention of protecting myself from rain. I trekked in one of the peak in karnataka called mullayanagiri all along in drizzling rain with a belief of jacket being water proof. But i was surprised to see that water enters through side zip. I bought this jacket for my hampta pass trek this month,but i don't think this will protect me from rains in himachal. Really disappointed by this product

Good, lightweight waterproof for walking/hiking and everyday use. The sizing is on the small size so I'd advise taking a size larger than your usual especially if pairing with a fleece or jumper
Excellent waterproofing
Sizing. UK Large is closer to Medium
Great product
Used for 1 week or less
The product was at my doorstep the very next day. So far it has been able to withstand a light drizzle and cold winds. The temperature at my location has dropped down to 10 C and so far this jacket is more than capable to handle it. I hope it will be able to endure much more cold, wind and rain.
Good product quality
Would be happy if it had a layer of fleece inside

I was actually looking for a work jacket, to use on a building project that meant I would be outside in all weathers. It needed to be waterproof, light (so that I could add layers underneath), not too bulky, and snug at the cuffs and around the bottom so that it wouldn't get caught on scaffolding, tools, etc. I tried builder's merchant/workwear sites, but this seemed the best, and in use, it has been great. Velcro on the cuffs keeps and a drawstring on the bottom edge keeps it snug, and even without extra layers, it is quite warm. It hasn't been through the worst of the winter yet, but so far, no negatives. Oh, and it was very good value, too.
Light, comfortable
Waterproof coat at a great price

I've had other 'waterproof' coats that aren't really waterproof, not in heavy rain anyway. This seems to be waterproof. It's my son's and he came home soaked recently and yet his suit jacket underneath was completely dry. So good job
It keeps the rain out and is pretty stylish too
