A fabric’s resistance to water pressure is expressed in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard).
The higher the 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 two-hour rain shower).
The garment’s waterproofing
This garment has been shower-tested in 60 L/m²/hour of water for two hours. This test reproduces average rain shower conditions in the mountains.
Breathability of the garment
Reduces condensation build-up inside clothing. To find out if a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance (RET) based on the ISO 11092 standard.The lower the resistance, the more water vapour generated by the body in physical activity can escape through the fabric.And the more breathable it is.For example:RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric
9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric
12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric
RET > 20 = little or no breathability.This poncho has a RET of 8.
Water repellency of the garment
A fabric’s water repellency is its ability to make water run off its surface without being absorbed.
A water-repellent fabric doesn’t soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable, and warm.
Water repellency is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of the fabric.
This treatment needs to be restored throughout the lifetime of the garment (every three washes).
All of Quechua’s ponchos have had a water repellency treatment.
Used for 7 to 12 months
