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

Waterproofing
The Slide 500 ski jacket was designed to withstand half a day's skiing in the snow (about 4hrs). To easily cope with bad weather (rain, snow, wind...), this jacket has been developed using a component and treatment that prevent water getting in. In order to validate the waterproof rating, the jacket was placed under a special shower that replicates the real-life conditions faced by skiers."
Water repellent component
Water repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. The SLIDE 300 jacket is equipped with water repellent components which prolong the resistance to bad weather. This is an additional technical solution for staying dry for as long as possible on the ski slopes. You should repeat this treatment regularly using products sold in our stores to maintain these properties.
Coating treatment
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
Taped seams
In addition to the waterproof fabric, we have enhanced the waterproof rating of the Slide 500 jacket with taped seams. These are waterproof adhesive strips fixed to the inside seams of the garment to make it perfectly watertight. These taped seams are present on the areas most exposed to snow. These are usually located on the shoulders and chest.
Wadding thermal lining
So that skiers feel "neither too hot, nor too cold", the garment must be able to adapt to the body's physical movement and the outside environment. 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.There are different types of wadding, including standard, technical and siliconized, which all have different properties (for warmth, lightness and suppleness...)
Thermal insulation
The cuffs have adjustable velcro tabs that go on or underneath the gloves providing a better seal so that snow or unpleasant cold draughts cannot get in. In addition, because the cold can cause irritations, Wedze has incorporated a soft fleece chin protection that protects your face and prevents irritations to your neck and chin.”
Recommendation on thermal adjustment
We recommend using the 3-layer rule. The principle is simple: Use 3 layers of fabric, each having a particular function. Your skiing base-layer and your liner jacket must produce and retain warmth. Your ski jacket will protect you from the weather conditions. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
Breathability
It’s the ski jacket’s ability to allow moisture produced during exercise to escape to the outside, keeping 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.
Windproof
The fabric is made windproof with a coating or by applying a membrane on the inside. When skiing on the slopes or resting on the ski lifts, protect yourself from the wind to prevent chills and make you as comfortable as possible.
Durability
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.
Ski pass pocket
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.
Care instructions
To optimise your jacket'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-waterproof the outer fabric using an aerosol waterproofing spray for fabric. Read the care tag carefully.
A mark to compare the environmental footprint of various products
The product's environmental footprint is calculated for its entire life and with 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. Video explanation: https://youtu.be/8t63KkRwn_8 sustainability.decathlon.com

    Perfekte Skijacke

    Jacke sieht super aus, passt perfekt, ist angenehm zu tragen und hält warm. Praktisch bei eisigem Wind war der hohe Kragen und die weite Kapuze, die auch über den Skihelm passt.

    warme und leichte Jacke

    die Jacke ist warm, obwohl sie nicht so dick ist. Der Tragekomfort ist absolut gegeben und Wind geht auch kaum durch, wirklich empfehlenswert!
