Recommended additional product
Care products: waterproofing spray or liquid in the machine To renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.
10
Waterproof component
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed as a water column of mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. Components scoring 2000 mm can resist the pressure from 2000 mm of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hours).
11
Waterproofing
This garment has been shower-tested using 100 litres of water/sqm/hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains.
12
Component with membrane or coating
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.
13
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
14
Breathability
In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops high-tech solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its hiking jackets and overtrousers. These ventilation systems allow you to regulate the temperature inside the garment and also to facilitate the transfer of perspiration generated by the body during physical effort.
15
Water repellency
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua overtrousers benefit from a waterproofing treatment.

NOT WATERPROOF..
Used for 1 week or less
I'm typing this while I'm still wet from the VERY FIRST TIME of using these in rain for MERELY 20-25 MINUTES on a scooter on open roads at 2.30 am.
Outer material is water repellent but these leak very badly from the Crotch and Pocket (both sides) area. It wasn't even raining too heavily.
I've always been a fan of decathlon products and recommend to many (last year's hiking jacket is still holding up well) but this time I'm Highly Dissappointed.
Response of the brand
Hello Mr Ovais,

Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 100 Waterproof Hiking Trouser. We regret the unpleasant experience you have had with the trouser. This over trouser is designed to protect you from rain, wind and snow while you are hiking in the mountain, but I am sorry to inform you that this is not suitable for riding a bike because hiking requires a fabric which stops water but allows breathability to stop the user from sweating. When it is used for bike riding, the water strikes the fabric with higher pressure and enters through the breathability pores which is not the case when you are hiking. However, If you are not satisfied with the product you can visit any of our stores for an exchange or refund.

I remain available if you need any further help.

Sportingly,

Varun Nair
Stiching is gone

Very good in terms of durability and comfirt
Used for 7 to 12 months
This is really good pants for multi-day hike or trek, I have used this in snow, rain and even in summer treks and it is working well with all the climates, in hot we could open the zipper on the both sides and apply Velcro for air circulation. No complaints so far. Also it comes with warm insulation layer over the thigh which helps in cold. Must have for hiking. If you have this Trouser with extra normal trouser you can hike around 10 days.
waterproof and good in snow and wind.
Not what i expected
Used for 1 week or less
I bought this trouser for my trip to Spiti valley in winters, The trouser was not helpful when it came to protecting from cold, i had two layers underneath still it could not handle the weather at Narkanda. We had to abort the trip and head back. I have bought a lot of stuff from this Brand never been disappointed. Hope this is one off experience.
partially waterproof.
Protection from Cold.

Hello Goyal,

Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 100 Rain Overtrousers. These pants are waterproof which also makes them windproof, but they do not have any insulation in terms of providing warmth.
If you did feel cold it would have been due to the lack of warmth provided by the two layers below the pants. These ideally should have been a Thermal base layer and probably a fleece pant. The type of thermals and the density of the fleece pant should be in accordance to the temperature you will experience.

Great fit. Great value
Fully waterproof

Perfect
Used for 7 to 12 months
I've worn these while climbing Mount Fuji. Perfect item, all you need is to KNOW what you get. Don't expect a radiator, cause it's not. It will not keep you warm, as it's not intended to. Got some rain in Japan plus few high winds and rain in UK, while fishing. I've never been disappointed by these.
As my review targets the product, I have to mention that on the negative side of it the stitching on my product was wrong. Due to this problem, the product ripped apart. I've exchanged it, no problem at all, and thank you Decathlon for that, but I came back to buy the same product and... its price is now higher. As my product was defective, according to the receipt I got, I would expect to get another pair at the same value...
I am not afraid to purchase it again. As a Quality Control Manager I know that the product is fine, only that my pair was stitched wrong.
I would rise the rating if Decathlon could offer me the same price for it, as the initial price paid.
Thank you.
Waterproof indeed

Quecha Forclaz 100 waterproof trousers
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Wore these for the first time in poor weather conditions with snow and hail coming horizontally and gusting up to 50mph. A joy to wear the braces being a good idea so you weren't adjusting or pulling them up every five minutes. Extremely breathable and keep all the rain out.
Easy to get on and off, comfortable,great fit.
A bit on the heavy side.
