Ski pants

Yes worked well for the skiing I was doing

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

Hello Randy,

Thank you for leaving a review about those ski pants.

We are glad to hear that they worked well for you.

Decathlon Calgary Team

Nejsou pro každého

Kalhoty jsou hodně úzké v pase (velikost L, výška 184 cm, váha 90 kg). Je to škoda, protože jinak vzhledově a technicky vypadají skvěle.

Eher klein

Perfekte Hose aber etwas knapp bemessen

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

Hallo Rene

Unsere Textilien fallen eher kleiner aus, da es französische Grössen sind.

Aber gerne darfst Du die Hose umtauschen und eine Grösse grösser nehmen.

Beste Grüsse



Super pantalon utilisé ces deux dernières semaines. Taille super, imperméable, léger, chaud! Je recommande!!!

Extrêmement déçu

J'avais choisi ce pantalon pour la partie sécurité. Malheureusement, le pantalon ne tient pas. Il glisse constamment. Et on se retrouve rapidement avec l'entrejambe à mi cuisse. Il tombe constamment. Il manque des bretelles

Warmth and breathability technology

Placed heat pads to provide good thermal protection during your freeriding outings. This technology reserves a large area where the 3-layer membrane component can eliminate your perspiration more effectively. A perfect compromise between a pair of fully padded pants and 3-layer pants without providing any additional heat. Warmth and modular features to accompany you on your freeride outings throughout the season.

Additional features

Wide elasticated waistband to guarantee: > perfect protection from drafts and snow > perfect support > constant and regular warmth in the lower back


In order to stay dry, it is important to have waterproof pants, but you mustn't trap the moisture generated through perspiration. The vents play an important role in wicking away perspiration. That's why we've added 2 zipped air vents with 2 large zippers under the thighs (28 cm in size L).


The water-repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from becoming waterlogged and remains light, breathable, and warm. A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend every 3 washes). All Wedze jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.

Component's waterproof properties.

The resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. For example, a fabric with a waterproof rating of 10,000 mm is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 15,000 mm column of water

Breathability of a component.

To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = little or no breathability.

What is a membrane or coated component?

The coating is akin to a paint applied inside the fabric that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less expensive than a membrane and requires a liner to protect it. The membrane is a kind of very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being more flexible, lighter, more durable, and often more breathable than a coating.

How do we make a garment waterproof?

The waterproof properties of the garment are related to its fabric, seam sealing, and assembly design. We then carry out shower tests on our garments.

Waterproofness/shower test

This garment has been validated in a shower test under 100 L of water / m² / hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain storm.

How do we make a garment breathable?

In addition to the breathability of the fabrics used, we employ technical solutions (zippers, vents, mesh) to improve the overall ventilation of our jackets and pants designed for Freeride skiing. These ventilation systems regulate the temperature inside the garment while also helping to eliminate the perspiration generated by the body during physical activity.

Determining the environmental impact of our products

The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifespan, using various indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks etc.). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products. For more information:

What is the recco® system?

All our Freeride and All-Mountain jackets and pants are equipped with the RECCO® system. With 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 AVD. The RECCO® technology works as a complementary measure, increasing the chances of being found in time.

Tutorial on how to wash your waterproof garment

We recommend that you follow these guidelines at every wash in order to retain all the technical features of your garment. Link: After 3 washes, restore the water-repellent properties with a waterproof spray or wash-in product.



Product testing

Our team of designers is based at the foot of the Mont-Blanc, near many ski resorts in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, because we believe that the only way to continuously improve our products is to test them under the real-life conditions that you will experience in use.
