Made for beginner mountain hikers seeking protection from the rain and wind. The 1st hiking jacket in our 100% waterproofed range! It has classic yet sporty looks and practical design features that will protect you on every hiking trail.
Standard cut. This jacket is loose enough to be worn over a warm second layer such as a pullover or fleece.
Height can be adjusted using an elastic drawcord and toggles. Adjustable depth using a rip-tab positioned at the back of the hood. Visor on the top of the head providing good protection for the face. Removable hood.
2 hand pockets + 1 inner pocket for a wallet. These 3 pockets have zips.
Jacket hem drawcord
Elastic draw-cords and toggles.
Adjustment of cuffs
Velcro tab fasteners.
Dual-material lining: mesh upper body to enhance the garment's breathability/nylon around the hips and sleeves to optimise ease of movement and resistance to wear.
Additional recommended products
Care products: waterproofing spray or liquid in the machine to renew the fabric water-repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.
We measure the resistance of a fabric to water pressure expressed in mm of water column (test based on Standard ISO 811). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a 5000 mm waterproof rating, i.e. it can withstand the pressure of the 5000 mm column of water. This is also equivalent to 5000 Schmerbers.
Impermeability of the garment
This garment has been tested in a 60L water/sqm/hour shower for 2 hours. This test replicates the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
To assess the breathability of the fabric, the evaporative resistance, RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard), is measured. The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
Component with coating or a membrane
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 supple, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than the coating.
Component water resistance
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. 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). All Quechua waterproof overtrousers have received water-repellent treatment.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators.
A score ranging from A to E is attributed so that you can easily identify the products with a better environmental performance compared to products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks,...). Decathlon totally backs the environmental labelling approach.

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.
