Advice

Storage instructions
Store on a hanger and do not fold, as this can damage the fabric coating. Make sure that the garment is completely dry before storing in a dry and well-ventilated place.

Features of the product

Cuff
Cuff does not allow snow to penetrate keeping you warm and dry in snowfall or should you fall in the snow.
What is the point of the water repellent property?
Water-repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. Fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer part. This treatment needs to be renewed during the garment’s lifetime (every 3 washes). All Wedze jackets have received a water repellent treatment.
What is a membrane-covered or coated component?
The coating is a paint applied to the inside of the fabric making it waterproof whilst being breathable. Often cheaper than a membrane, and necessitates lining for protection. The membrane is a type of very fine film (polyurethane) which makes the component waterproof whilst remaining breathable. It is softer, lighter, more resistant and often more breathable than a coating.
What is the breathability of a component?
To determine whether a component is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower a fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by the body during sports can escape through the fabric, and the higher its breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric/9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric/12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric/RET > 20 = not very or not at all breathable.
How do you measure the waterproofing of a component?
We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more watertight the fabric. A component with a waterproofing resistance of 2000 mm resists the pressure of 2000 mm of water
How do you make clothing waterproof?
The garment waterproofing is linked to the component, the waterproofness of seams and the assembly design. We also conduct shower tests on our clothing
How will my ski jacket keep me warm?
We use wadding for insulation to help keep you warm. This polyester-based synthetic material traps air, the quantity of which will depend on the size of the fibres. Wadding can be standard, high-tech or siliconised, each with different properties: warmth, lightness, flexibility, etc.
How do I know if my clothing is breathable?
In addition to the breathability of fabrics used, we use technical solutions (zips, vents, netting, etc.) which improve the overall ventilation of jackets and trousers designed for Freeriding and All Mountain skiing. These ventilation systems allow us to both regulate the temperature inside the clothing and facilitate perspiration wicking generated by the body during effort.
How should I dress to avoid feeling cold on the slopes?
To keep warm and dry, use the 3-breathable-layers rule: 1 ski base layer and 1 under-jacket for keeping warm, 1 ski jacket to protect you from bad weather.
How can I prevent snow from getting in when I fall?
The snow skirt is a protection system at waist level that closes with press studs at the bottom of the ski or snowboard jacket. It prevents snow and air from entering during practice and especially in the case of a fall.
Where can I put my ski pass when taking the ski lifts?
You no longer need to get your ski pass out because your sleeve has a ski pass pocket to allow you to access the cable cars quickly.
Comparison score on product environmental impact
The environmental impact of a product is calaculated across the entir elife cycle of the product using different indicators. A score of A, B, C, D or E is provided to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of a similar type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks). For Decathlon, this initiative to display environmental data is a priority. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
What is the RECCO system?
100% of our Freeride and All Mountain trousers and jackets are equipped with the RECCO system. With the RECCO® technology, you can be located in the event of an avalanche. Someone who is equipped with RECCO® reflectors and is buried in the snow can be quickly and accurately located by the emergency services using the RECCO® tracker. RECCO reflectors are not a substitute for an avalanche beacon. The RECCO technology has a complementary function, increasing the chances of being found in time.

    lehká, pohodlná, hřejivá

    Zimní budnu jsem vybírala již dlouho, ale jakmile jsem oblékla ttuto, věděla jsem, že je to ona :-) A ani po cca 14 dnech nošení mne nezklamala, odolnost proti větru, sněhu a vodě super a hlavně úžasná je volnost pohybu v této bundě. A dále výborné je množství kapes obzvlášť na lyže. Vřele doporučuji.
