Additional recommended products
Forclaz Rain overtrousers for protecting the lower body to complete an effective rain protection outfit designed for mountain walks. Care products: waterproof spray or liquid in the machine, to renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifetime of your garment.
Waterproof component
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. Components with a 2000 mm rating can withstand the pressure of a 2000 mm column of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hour).
Impermeability of the garment
This garment was approved in a shower test in 100 L of water/m²/hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains.
Component breathability
In addition to breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overtrousers designed for great hiking use (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems allow both temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.
Component with coating or a membrane
The coating is 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 3 layers, 2 layers or 2.5 layers
3 layers: the membrane is bonded between the outer and inner layer of the component. This construction helps the membrane last longer and boosts the component's performance. 2 layers: the membrane is only bonded to the outer fabric, the inner protective lining is free. This construction costs less but is generally more cumbersome. 2.5 layers: the membrane is protected on the inside by a kind of varnish coating rather than an actual layer to make it as lightweight as possible
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 jackets have received a 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. For further information:

Great product
Very happy with this raincoat. I've used it for a few month, and never got wet, even after more than 30 minutes of heavy rain. I use it both in Shanghai, to cycle around when it rains, or during hikes. It's relatively breathable and also looks quite good for a Decathlon product.
- Only drawback : the sleeves are a bit long, and I have long arms. But when it rains, you're happy to have your under layer well covered, so I don't know what to think about that. Maybe 2cm shorter would be better ?
better than the expensive brands
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I checked out a lot of other coats before buying, this was the cheapest but not inferior. Feels the same quality of the main outdoor brands and other reviews swayed it for me. Not tested in rain yet but warmerthan you would think and keeps wind out. Will be wearing in the lakes later in the year for full test!
This is the best Rain Jacket of this kind
Used for More than 1 year
I bought the second Jacket of the same model. It is the best choice of this kind of jackets.

Really waterproof jacket
Used for 3 to 6 months
High-quality jacket for a great price. Very waterproof, with useful underarm vents and nice adjustable cuffs and hood.
Excellent jacket
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Very comfortable, waterproof jacket, also windproof, good adjustments, really good value for money, acurate sizing
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This jacket was a fantastic buy. I bought this to go climbing Munro's in Scotland in late October. We had seven hours on the hills in 40-50 mph winds and sleeting rain. My Saloman boots gave in and leaked, my Skinz gloves were like a sponge, but this jacket kept me dry throughout, amazing value for the price. I had two layers underneath and fine whilst walking but needed an extra fleece layer when standing around. I am also using this for Adventure racing as it is light and breathable so well worth the money.
Excellent craftsmanship and value
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I am thoroughly impressed by the craftsmanship of this jacket - it is at par with premium brands such as Arcteryx or Mountain Hardwear. Highly functional piece of gear - pockets and ventilation are very well thought out. The value is unbeatable, well done, Decathlon!
