This clothing was validated in a shower test using 60 L/sqm/hr of water for 1 hour. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.A component with a 5,000 mm rating can withstand the pressure of a 5,000 mm column of water (which is equivalent to an hour-long rain shower).
Waterproofing is expressed in schmerbers (for example: 5 000 schmerbers).
To assess the breathability of the fabric, the evaporative resistance, RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard), is measured. The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity is evaporated, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = little or no breathability.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH
Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products.
Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.
WHERE DO OUR JACKETS COME FROM?
Created in our international design centre at the foot of Mont Blanc in France, this jacket is then manufactured by our suppliers in Bangladesh and Ethiopia.
These are partners that have genuine expertise in making our tents and with whom we are in close collaboration.
Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.
