    7. Additional recommended products
      "Rain-Cut Pant" overtrousers or waterproof leggings for complete protection for the lower legs and provide comprehensive and highly effective protection from the wind and rain showers. 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 lifetime.
    8. Waterproof component
      We test a fabric's resistance to water pressure by measuring the height of a column of water supported by the fabric in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The better the fabric resists pressure, the more waterproof it is. A component with 2000mm waterproofing therefore resists the pressure exercised by 2000mm of water (which corresponds to about a 2-hour shower).
    9. Waterproofing of the garment
      This garment has been shower-tested 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 measure 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 can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability.For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 920 = little or no breathability.
    11. Water-repellent component
      A fabric is water-repellent when water slides over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. 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.

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I used it for my humta pass trek.. It could sustain medium rains but after 2 hours of continuous exposure gets little soggy from inside.

      This poncho is good for use while trekking and walking.

      Used for 1 week or less
      I purchased this product as i needed to run in the rain. It is a nice loose fitting poncho and is breathable. I was able to run easily, and did not get too wet. Some amount of rain water does get through because of the area near the opening of the hood and the zip. I would recommend the product nevertheless
