Made for Women hikers looking for Rain pants Slide these hiking overtrousers in your bag, that provide total protection in the event of a downpour and is provided for use with your waterproof jacket !A waterproof compact & breathable model.
This garment has been shower-tested using 60 litres of water/sq.m./hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
We measure a fabric resistance to water pressure, expressed as a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A waterproof rating of 2000 mm means that the fabric can withstand the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (the equivalent of nearly a two-hour downpour).
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 jackets have received water-repellent treatment.
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
