TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

What is the cut of this softshell jacket?

Quite a close-fitting cut. The jacket is designed to be worn with a slim-fitting second layer such as a fleece.

Breathability

The main fabric used throughout the jacket, except at the sides, has a windproof membrane with a breathability of 2814 g/sqm for 24 h (according to the JIS 1099 A standard).

Functions

2 hand pockets.

Jacket hem tightened with an elastic cord + toggles.

Lycra cuffs + thumb loops on cuffs to prevent any heat loss.

Thermal comfort and windproof

The wind makes you feel considerably colder.

With an outside temperature of 0°C and a 20 km/h wind, the perceived temperature is -10°C.

"Windproof" components fight the uncomfortable effects associated with this "freezing effect". Forming a barrier against the wind, they effectively reduce heat loss.

This Trek 500 Softshell jacket is comfortable down to 10°C when active and worn as a second layer.

Water repellent property of component (not to be confused with waterproofing)

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 and warm. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifespan (recommended after each wash). Products for this are available in our stores. All Quechua Softshells have the benefits of water repellent treatment.
