Sizing and fit information
Fitted cut. The inside is spacious enough to wear it over a warm 2nd layer, such as a down vest or technical padded jacket. Structure and material improve ease of movement for your shoulders and arms.
Deep and enveloping. 3-point adjustment system (height, depth, and volume) with a single elastic drawstring + toggle. Adjust in 1 move.
Stiff visor for maximum face protection.
Exterior: 4 large pockets with waterproof zippers. 2 chest pockets and two hand pockets.
Interior: 1 waterproof zipper pocket + 2 quick access mesh pockets.
Dual tightening with an elastic cord and toggle at the hem.
Wrist tightening with velcro.
3-layer material with membrane
Membrane or coating
- A coating is like a paint applied to the inside of the fabric to make it waterproof while remaining breathable. It's often less expensive than a membrane and must be protected by a lining.
- A membrane is a very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the material waterproof while remaining breathable. It's more flexible, lighter, more durable, and often more breathable than a coating.
Jacket structure with a membrane
- 3 layers: The membrane is glued between the outer fabric and inner fabric. Used for resistant and high-performance jackets
- 2.5 layers: The membrane is glued under the outer fabric and protected by a thin film on the inside. Used for lightweight jackets.
- 2 layers: the membrane is glued only to the outer fabric; the inner protective lining is separate. Used for comfortable jackets
The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in terms of the height in mm of a water column (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a 15,000 mm waterproof rating is resistant to the pressure exerted by a 15,000 mm column of water (which roughly corresponds to a 4-hour storm).
Jacket water resistance
This garment was validated in a shower test under 450 L/m²/h of water for 4 h. This test reproduces the average conditions of a mountain storm.

To determine 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 sweat generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example:
RET < 3 = extremely breathable fabric
RET ≤ 6 = very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12 = breathable fabric
RET ≤ 20 = slightly or not breathable
In addition to the breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zippers, air vents, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its jackets and top-layer pants designed for use on long hikes. These ventilation systems regulate the temperature inside the garment while also helping to eliminate perspiration generated during physical activity.
Restoring water repellency
Water repellency is a fabric's ability to cause water to run off its surface without being absorbed, so the material doesn't get soaked. Water repellency is achieved by applying a treatment to the outer surface. This treatment needs to be reapplied during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend every 3 washes).

Product environmental impact comparison score
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall score from A to E helps you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products. Learn more at: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
