The tests are: resistance to penetration of water (before and after treatment), évaporative strength, tensile strength, resistance to the tear resistance of the seams and dimensional changes.
Certified clothes are marked by a specific pictogram :
X : resistance to penetration of water (1-3)
Y : evaporative resistance (from 1 to 3)
