Features of the product

Can I be sure my trousers will protect me well in bad weather?
The Free 700 trousers are rigorously developed and assembled to prevent water from entering, ensuring greater comfort in bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.). To check that they are efficiently waterproof and watertight, these trousers have been placed in a special shower reproducing the conditions a skier may have to cope with.
What's the point of having water-repellent trousers?
Water repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. Wed’ze trousers have water resistant materials to prolong their resistance to bad weather and to prevent water from getting into the trousers. It is an additional technical solution to make sure you stay dry as long as possible throughout the day. You should repeat this treatment regularly using products sold in our stores to maintain these properties.
I often hear people talk about "coated" trousers. What are the advantages of this coating?
The coating is a waterproof "substance" that is spread on the inner side of the fabric. It prevents water from seeping into the garment but allows the water vapour produced by an active body to escape. So you will stay dry and comfortable while hitting the slopes
Water often gets in through the seams. Do my trousers have taped seams?
As well as the waterproof material, we use sealed seams to make the Free 700 jacket even more water-resistant. These are waterproof adhesive strips taped to the inside seams of the garment to make it perfectly watertight. These taped seams are present on the areas most exposed to snow.
What is a membrane and what's it for?
The membrane is a very fine component applied to the inner surface of the outer fabric. This hydrophilic component prevents water from seeping in while wicking away perspiration. The membrane is unbeatable when it comes to staying warm and dry.
How will my ski trousers keep me warm?
We use wadding for insulation to keep you warm. The wadding is a synthetic material with a polyester base that stores a greater or lesser quantity of air depending on the size of fibres used. Wadding can be standard, technical or siliconised and each type has different properties (warmth, light weight, supple, etc.)
What are "breathable" trousers?
It's the ski trousers' ability to let moisture produced during exercise escape to the outside, in order to keep you dry. To find out if a fabric is breathable, its evaporative resistance, called RET (standardized test ISO 11092), is measured. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. Wedze uses technical components and solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh) preventing condensation inside the garment.
How should I dress to avoid feeling cold on the slopes?
In order to stay warm and dry, we recommend that you wear 2 layers. Your ski undergarment and your trousers. Your ski jacket will protect you from the weather conditions. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
How can I prevent snow from getting in when I fall?
Attach the jacket's snow skirt to your trousers. Trousers often have small eyelets at the waist to which you can attach the jacket's snow skirt. So you will prevent snow and air from entering during practice and especially in case of falling.
How can I be sure my trousers are strong enough?
We know how much energy is expended during a day's skiing or snowboarding. That’s why we take particular care in choosing all the elements that make up our products to guarantee the best possible protection.
Can I compare the products' environmental impact?
"The product's environmental impacts are calculated across its entire life cycle using various indicators. A score of A, B, C, D or E is made 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. Explanatory video:"
Built-in 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, thereby increasing the chances of being found in time.

    Tolle, passgenaue Hose!

    Bin sehr begeistert von diesem Produkt! Sie sitzt sehr gut, bietet jede Menge Bewegungsfreiheit und macht einen tollen Eindruck. Hatte bisher immer Hosen von namhaften Herstellern, diese hier braucht sich aber nicht zu verstecken! Für den Preis absolut empfehlenswert!

    Passgenau und super warm

    Die Hose macht einen super ersten Eindruck. Den Härtetest führt mein Partner in 2 Wochen durch. Dann geht es auf den Gletscher.

    El pantalón más cómodo que he llevado hasta fecha. Calientes, transpirables, con una impermeabilidiad espectacular aún pasando largos ratos sentado en la nieve... Despues de una larga jornada, daba la sensación de acabar de ponértela.
