To face different weather (rain, snow, wind...), the Slide 200 jacket has been developed and produced using a special component to prevent water from entering. To check that they are efficiently waterproof and watertight, these pants have been placed in a special shower reproducing the conditions a skier may have to cope with.
Water repellent component
Water repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. The SLIDE 200 jacket is equipped with water resistant materials to prolong its 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.
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 vapor produced by an active body to escape. So you will stay dry and comfortable while hitting the slopes
Waterproof main seams
In addition to the waterproof fabric, we reinforce the sealing of the SLIDE 200 jacket with sealed 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 fibers used. There are different types of wadding, including standard, technical and siliconized, which all have different properties (for warmth, lightness & suppleness)
The finishing at the end of the sleeves has adjustable velcro fastenings to go on top of or underneath gloves, allowing better water resistance and preventing snow from entering if there’s a snowfall or uncomfortable cold air from getting 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.”
Thermal insulation recommendation
Wearing the right kit on the ski slopes
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 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.
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. RET of the SLIDE 200 jacket: 12
This is the garment’s resistance to the wind. The fabric is made windproof by adding a coating or a membrane to 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.
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.
All Wed'ze products are designed and developed in the Mont Blanc Valley. They are then tested under identical usage conditions to those that you will encounter yourself (in the snow, cold and powder snow, etc.) The design teams ensure that the program for which the product has been designed and developed corresponds perfectly to its use on the ground.
