    7. Additional recommended products
      Forclaz Rain overtrousers protect the lower half of your body, as part of a complete and effective rain protection system for your mountain outings. Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine. To boost fabric water-repellency and optimise your garment performance throughout its life.
    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 component with 2000mm waterproofing can withstand the pressure of 2000 mm water (corresponding to about a hour of rain).
    9. Waterproof garment
      Technologies: 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. 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. Garment 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 coating or a membrane
      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. 3-, 2- or 2.5-layer component
      "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 repellent component
      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 fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes). All the Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
    15. A score for comparing products' environmental impact
      The product's environmental 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. For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
