    6. Main component
      Double-coated fabric.
    7. Technical linings
      The fabric inside the sleeves is designed to manage perspiration and provide greater comfort when the jacket is worn over "bare arms" (on top of a T-shirt or another short-sleeve garment). Meshed fabric body lining to enhance the garment's breathability.
    8. Recommended additional product
      Forclaz Rain overtrousers protect the lower half of your body and provide a complete and effective rain protection system for your mountain hikes. Care products: waterproofing spray or liquid in the machine To renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.
    9. Waterproofing
      NOVADRY® technology: this garment has been subjected to a shower test using 100 litres of water/sqm/hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a violent storm in the mountains.
    10. Waterproof component
      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. Component breathability
      In addition to breathable fabrics, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overtrousers (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems allow you to regulate the temperature inside the garment and also to facilitate the transfer of perspiration generated by the body during physical effort.
    12. Component with membrane or coating
      Coating: like a layer of "paint" applied on the underside of the fabric to make it waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less costly than a membrane, and requires a lining for protection. The membrane: is like a very fine plastic film (polyurethane) making the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the edge, being more supple, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than coating.
    13. Consists of 3, 2 or 2.5 layers
      3 layers: the membrane is bonded to an inner and outer layer of the component. This construction helps the membrane last longer and boosts the component's performance. 2 layers: the membrane is only bonded to the outer layer, the inner protective lining is free. This construction costs less but is generally more cumbersome. 2.5 layers: the membrane has inner protection with a kind of varnish coating rather than an actual layer to make it as lightweight as possible
    14. 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. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received water-repellent treatment.
    15. Comparative note on the environmental impact of the products
      The environmental impact of each product is calculated for the product's entire life cycle, using different indicators. A general ABCDE mark is attributed to help you identify the best environmental performance by comparing products to each other (t-shirts, rucksacks, etc). Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of the environmentally-friendly labelling approach. For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

      Used this in rain, it was not able to shield. Got wet in the rain. Think then zip part on the jacket should be shielded well. Not impressed.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Mr. Raj Shekar,

      Thanks for your time to review the Forclaz 100 waterproof hiking jacket by Quechua. I apologise for the inconvenience caused to you.

      The Forclaz 100 has been an amazing jacket, as reviewed by a lot of our users, for the protection it offers on mountains from the rain and wind. It has been tested under the laboratory conditions for 8000 mm waterproofing , which is equivalent to 8hr of walking in the rain. The zipper has an internal channel which routes the water downwards and protects the user from getting wet. The one challenge to any waterproof hiking jacket of Quechua is the pressure with which the water droplets hit the surface of the jacket, which varies with the altitude on a mountain or when used for bike riding. 

      If you believe your case was not the latter, I apologise for the inconvenience caused and request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and get this product exchanged. 

      I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in future.

      I bought this Jacket with high expectation after recommendation by Decathlon people in May 2017. Got opportunity to use it in rain while roaming around ooty in July 3rd week. It failed to shield even in moderate rains.It seems as if it absurd the water. I am really disappointed as It was supposed to be one of best rain jacket.

    • I would not recommend buying this product

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      In the beginning it kept me out of being drenched when I had the jacket unfolded and less used. Later I started folding the jacket to fit in my backpack and I crushed it and dumped it a few times. Thats when I observed that I'm being drenched more. I don't know if that is something to do with how the material is manufactured. But for me this jacket is not a cheap one and I was not expecting this to happen.
