Hydrophilic membrane (RET=9): limits condensation inside the garment.
Drawstring waist. Depth- and height-adjustable hood.
Fitted, very feminine cut. The inner volume allows you to wear this parka over a warm second layer such as a lightweight pullover or fleece.
Removable with zip. Height can be adjusted using an elastic drawcord and toggles. Adjustable depth with rip-tab fastening positioned at the back of the hood. Fitted visor provides protection around the face.
2 large patch pockets under pressure flaps for hands + 1 outer zipped chest pocket + 1 inside zipped pocket..
with press stud fasteners.
Breathable fabric inside sleeves to optimise perspiration management and provide greater comfort when the jacket is worn over "bare arms" (on top of a T-shirt or another short sleeve garment).
Bi-material lining around the body: Mesh around the top to enhance the garment's breathability / nylon around the hips to optimise ease of movement and resistance to wear.
Elastic drawcord and toggles to adjust waist size.

Care products: spray or liquid water repellent treatment in the washing machine.
To renew the fabric's water repellent properties and optimise performance throughout the lifespan of your garment.
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed as a water column of mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. A waterproof rating of 2000 mm means the fabric can withstand pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (the equivalent of a rain shower lasting for two hours).
Technologies: this garment has been subjected to a shower test using 60 litres of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
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.
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. This is achieved through a treatment applied to the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every 3 washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
