Water resistance of the fabric
The waterproofing of a fabric by a coating or a membrane is measured in Schmerbers or H20 mm (pressure of a water column). The higher this number, the more waterproof the fabric.
This jacket is designed with a waterproof coating (JIS 1092 standard): this component resists 5,000 mm H20 (Schmerbers) before washing (equivalent to the pressure exerted by a 5 metre column of water).
Our product's fabric is extremely breathable - 12 TER
The breathability of a component is measured by its "Thermal Evaporative Resistance". This is its capacity to let out water vapour produced by the body during activity. The lower the Thermal Evaporative Resistance (TER), the higher the breathability of the fabric.
RET ≤ 9: extremely breathable fabric
RET < 12: very breathable fabric
RET < 20: breathable fabric
RET > 20: little or non-breathable fabric.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. We use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced.
Your health is our top priority
We changed the composition of our water repellent treatments in order to use technologies without perfluorocarbons (PFC).
PFCs are used to make fabric water-repellent.
Choose your waterproof jacket according to your sports effort
This rain jacket has been designed for a 2-hour hike at a pace of 5 km/h max., without elevation gain.
During sports activity, the extent to which we perspire depends on the intensity or the duration of the physical effort . If the breathability of the fabric is not adapted to your type of physical activity, the perspiration vapour condenses inside the jacket . You will feel damp inside this is not rain coming through but perspiration vapour condensing . You therefore need to choose a rain jacket according to your type of physical activity.
Recommended additional product
To protect the lower body as well and have a very effective outfit to protect you against the wind and showers, we recommend the men's NH500 over-trousers.

TESTS AND WARRANTY
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute-Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for co-designing high-quality products for your hikes and giving you access to all our expertise.
To meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested out in the heart of nature in the type of conditions you may encounter during your hikes.
Our teams, as well as a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers), test products throughout their development until they go to market.
