Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine. To renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise the garment's performance throughout its lifespan.
    8. Waterproof component
      We measure a fabric's resistance to a column of water in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. A waterproof rating of 2000 mm meaning the fabric can withstand the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (the equivalent of a two hour downpour).
    9. Waterproof garment
      Technology: this garment has been subjected to a shower test using 60 litres of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
    10. Component breathability
      To find out 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 water vapour generated by physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 920 = little or no breathability.
    11. Water repellency
      A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. This is achieved through a treatment applied to the fabric's exterior. This treatment needs to be repeated throughout the product's life (we recommend every 3 washes). All Quechua waterproof ponchos and capes have received a water repellent treatment.
    12. A score for comparing products' environmental impact
      The product's environemental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental information.

    • Ideal waterproof for an outdoor photographer

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I purchased this product as I had one before but lost it on a photographic foray. This item covers me and equipment in virtually any weather. I can use it as a portable hide and a ground sheet. The only downside is it could be longer as it only comes to the top of me wellies. I used to have a waxed riding coat which covered right down to the ankles of my boots. Maybe in the future this product could be longer in length.
