Features of the product

How can I be sure my jacket will give me proper protection in bad weather?
The Essential trousers were developed with a sophisticated component and assembly to prevent water from entering and reduce wind chill in order to cope with bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.). To check that they are waterproof, these trousers were placed in a special shower reproducing the conditions a skier has to cope with. We approved this product's waterproofing by skiing in different conditions for several days.
What's the point of having water-repellent trousers?
The water repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to allow water to run off its surface without seeping in. The Essential trousers are equipped with water-repellent components that prolong their resistance to bad weather. This high-tech solution will keep you dry for longer on the ski slopes. For it to remain effective, you must repeat this treatment regularly using the products sold in our stores.
"Coated" trousers: what are the advantages of this coating?
"The coating is a waterproofing material spread over the inner surface of a fabric. It prevents water from seeping into the garment but allows the water vapour produced by an active body to escape. So you stay dry for greater comfort while practising your sport. "
How do my ski trousers 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, low weight, flexibility, etc. "
What are "breathable" trousers?
"It is a product that lets the moisture produced by your body during exercise escape, in order to keep you dry. To measure the breathability of a fabric, we measure its resistance to evaporative heat (RET) with a standardised ISO 11092 test. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. Wed'ze uses high-tech materials and solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh) that help prevent condensation inside the garment. RET of the Essential trousers < 12 "
How should I dress to avoid having cold legs on the slopes?
"To keep the legs warm and dry: wear 2 breathable layers, e.g. 1 base layer or a pair of ski tights to retain the warmth and a pair of ski trousers to protect you from bad weather. "
