Features of the product

WATER REPELLENT COMPONENT
All the Wed'ze gloves and mittens have been given a water-repellent treatment that prevents the fabric from absorbing water and allows it to run off the surface. Consequently, the fabric does not soak up the water. It remains lightweight and warm. The fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface. This treatment must be restored every 2 to 3 washes with the waterproofing products available in our stores.
BREATHABLE COATING
This ski glove has a breathable coating. This process consists of coating the surface with a paste or a liquid. Applied on a textile base, the material forms a protective film which acts as a watertight barrier letting the water vapour escape.
WINDPROOF
All the Wed'ze gloves are "windproof". Did you know that wind makes you feel colder? With an outside temperature of 0°C and a wind of 20 km/h, the sensed temperature is -10°C. The “wind-breaking” elements allow the reduction of chilling effects linked to the wind or relative speed of the sporting activity.

Poor insulation

I bought this for my goecha-la trek in Sikkim . Max altitude was 4500m only but this gloves didn't serve any purpose except for water proofing. Used a base gloves too but no benefit.

Brand's answer :

Hi Rahul,

Thank you for your review on the Wedze Access Ski gloves.
I am sorry to hear that the gloves did not serve the purpose. Could you please highlight the conditions that were there during your trek?
Although this glove is made for occasional skiers, we do understand many trekkers like to use it for their treks.
However I would like to mention a few important points often overlooked.
Any glove, warm clothing or sleeping bag doesn't generate heat unless it uses some electrical mechanism to do so and they only way these products keep you warm is by retaining/reflecting your existing body heat. Therefore it becomes very important how they are used and what state the user is at that moment. For example, a user who is exhausted, hungry, have low metabolic rate, already shivering will most probably feel the sensation of cold even after wearing appropriate clothing for the same temperature compared to someone who is none of those.
Therefore layering becomes a very important element in keeping a body warm in such conditions.
Goecha La at 4940m in May can be anywhere between 15 degrees daytime to sub zero night time. Add some windchill to that and it's even worse.
While in winter, the same trek can be as low as -20 degrees at night. I used the Simond Alpinism 2 in 1 gloves with Quechua Silk liner during my trip to Goecha La in December 2014 and found them perfectly fine.
Nonetheless, if you are still unsatisfied with the product you have please feel free to return it to your nearest Decathlon store for an exchange under our satisfied or satisfied policy.

I am available at your disposal in case of any further doubts.

Many thanks and regards,
