Can I be sure my jacket will protect me well in bad weather?
For tackling bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.), the FREE jacket has been developed with a component and assembly that stops water getting through and reduces wind chill. The waterproof rating is measured by placing the product in a specially designed shower that replicates the real-life conditions encountered by snowboarders in use. Finally, we wore them for several days' snowboarding under all conditions to validate its waterproofness.
Water often gets in through the seams. Does my jacket have taped seams?
We increase the waterproofing of our jacket with taped seams in addition to waterproof fabric. 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 (hood, shoulders).
What is the point of the water repellent property of my jacket?
Water-repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in thanks to a treatment that is applied to its exterior. The fabric is not waterlogged, it stays light and warm. This treatment must be renewed during the product’s lifespan, after 2 to 3 washes on average with the help of the products offered in our stores. All the waterproof jackets that we design for snowboarders have a water-repellent treatment.
What is a membrane and what's it for?
A membrane is a very thin component (between 5 and 25 micrometres) applied to the internal surface of a textile base to give it excellent waterproof and breathable capabilities. Our membrane fabrics do not let water in while letting out water vapour generated by your body when snowboarding.
How will my jacket keep me warm?
To keep you warm, we use wadding insulation. Wadding is a synthetic component made from polyester which stores more or less air, depending on the length of the fibres. Wadding can be standard, hi-tech or siliconised, each with different properties (warmth, lightweight, supple, etc.).
How should I dress to avoid feeling cold in the mountains?
In order to keep warm and dry, we recommend using the 3-layer rule. The principle is simple: Use 3 layers of fabric, each having a particular function. Your under-garment must produce and keep in the warmth. Your hoodie or sweatshirt provides you with warmth whereas the jacket protects you from bad weather. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
How can I stop snow from coming into my jacket?
Our jackets have elasticated snow skirts that can be adjusted at the waist. If you fall or ski in fresh snow, the seal keeps the snow out.
How should I take care of my product?
To optimise your product's performance and durability, we advise the following: Machine wash separately at 30°C. Synthetic cycle. Turn inside out. Use a small amount of detergent. No softener. Wring out manually. Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place. Do not dry clean. Do not place on a radiator. You can re-watertight the outer fabric using a fabric waterproofing spray. Read the care label.
