We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure resistance, the more waterproof the fabric. Components with 2000 mm waterproof rating can resist 2000 mm of water pressure (which is roughly equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours). With a waterproofing rate over 10,000 mm, these pants offer an extremely high level of waterproofing.
The Cascade pants were approved in a shower test under 100 litres of water/m²/hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain downpour.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporate resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more moisture generated by an active body is evaporated and therefore the higher the fabric's breathability.
We consider that if
- RET < 9 = highly breathable fabric
- RET > 12 = slightly or not breathable fabric.
Cascade pants have a RET = 6
Score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and using various indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.).
Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme.
