    6. Comfortably warm and windproof
      Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold! With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°C. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
    7. Water-repellency of the component (different to waterproofing)
      A fabric is water repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every three washes).
    8. Component breathability
      To find out if a fabric is breathable, its total evaporation resistance RET (test based on ISO 11092), is measured. The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability.For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 920 = little or no breathability.
    9. Breathability of the garment
      In addition to breathability of the fabrics used, Quechua develops technical solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh, etc.) to improve the overall ventilation of its trekking jackets and overtrousers designed for great hiking use (Forclaz, Bionnassay and Helium lines). These ventilation systems allow both temperature regulation inside the garment and help wick away perspiration generated by the body during exercise.
    Product testing

      I've been looking for a windproof to replace my big brand one I sold a while back but I wasn't prepared to spend the £60-£80 on a new one. This Helium windproof is not as full featured and well-designed as my far more expensive old one but to be frank, it really doesn't matter for what I use it for.

      Windproofs are one of those bits of kit you don't know how useful they are until you get one. I go backpacking and when up on the hills, a windproof really comes in handy. Windchill is a massive factor in outdoors pursuits but waterproof shells, whilst being excellent wind-blockers, trap sweat and you get damping and steamy no matter how good your "breathable" fabric is. Windproofs are just finely woven polyester and so sweat can easily get through. So can rain so they do spray them with a water-repellent but this only holds off light showers for a short time - they are not waterproof. What they do well is to massively reduce windchill without adding insulation or sweatiness. If you wear one over a baselayer you can keep just warm without getting too hot and if you wear it over a fleece, the insulation value of the fleece improves dramatically. Overall, they allow you to ajust your temperature much better than the standard 3 layer system.

      I don't need it to have a full mountain hood or adjustable cuffs etc - if the weather is getting that bad, it's waterproof time. So this one fits the bill. It's super light and packable. It will see off a short, light shower and does the job of stopping the wind just fine.

      The downside is that it's not the toughest item around. The fabric is necessarily thin, the zip isn't robust and there are extra ventliation holes under the arms which, whilst welcome, are just punched through the fabric with no reinforcement. So it needs treating a bit carefully.

      I'd definitely recommend this item.

      Lightweight yet breathable via small holes. Does not stick to the body due to sweat. Looks very nice. Most importantly - its very compact for storage. You can have it in your backpack & not remember.
