Medium Women's waterproof mountain walking jacket MH100, Grey
At the foot of the Mont Blanc, our team of hikers developed this affordable waterproof jacket for occasional hiking.
This jacket has a cut that fits all shapes while still looking very feminine. A warm layer such as a fleece or light sweater can be worn underneath. Inner lining can also provide more comfort.You can choose your usual size, or a size above if you don't want it to be worn fitted.
The hood is removable thanks to press studs. It can be adjusted in height using an elasticated cord and adjusted in depth thanks to a Velcro tab located at the back of the hood.
CONSTRUCTION OF THE JACKET
This jacket is constructed with 2 coated layers, including a mesh lining (large mesh lining)â€ک2 layers' means there is the outer fabric and the lining.A coating is applied to the inside of the fabric, it is similar to a resin that makes the component waterproof, while remaining breathable. The inner lining of the jacket has the role of protecting this coatings4
The waterproof rating is measured by the fabric's resistance to water pressure expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric.The component of this product has a waterproof rating of 5000 mm, i.e. it can withstand the pressure exerted by a 5000 mm column of water. This is also equivalent to 5 000 Schmerbers.s5
Component breathability is measured by its thermal evaporative resistance (RET).This is its capacity to let water vapour generated by the body during physical activity escape and therefore avoid water accumulating on the skin.The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric.RET â‰¤ 6 very breathable fabricRET â‰¤ 12 breathable fabricRET â‰¤ 20 little breathabilityOur product has a 12 RET ratings6
HOW TO RESTORE THE WATER-REPELLENT PROPERTIES OF MY JACKET?
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it.This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use.All the steps to restore the water-repellent properties are below s7
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.s8
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
A product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators.A score from A to E is produced to help you make a responsible choice.This rating is used to easily identify the products with the best environmental performance.This is done by making a comparison between products of the same family (e.g. backpacks).Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of this environmentally-friendly labelling approach. s9
