ski pants

really comfortable and free to move. Very good quality

Hi Vera,

We are so glad to hear, thank you so much for sharing your review with us.

Great ski pants

Tried many options on the market from various brands and these fit me the best. Short, strong athletic build means I need pants that are not too tight in the knees and seat, but still fit my waist. These fit the bill.

Thank you very much for your feedback, Jaclyn.

We are really happy to hear that you are happy with those pants and how they fit you.

Have fun this winter and see you again soon!

The colour I wanted

Not skied in them yet but had and orange pair of Freeride 500 where they have mesh behind the vents. These blue ones don’t have that. I am not sure if it is a manufacturing fault on my pair or have the designers done away with the mesh behind the vent? That is not an improvement! I had to buy dark grey base layers as my old ones are white!

Tolle Passform

Die Passform ist super, nur leider ist die Hose sehr lang. Ansonsten sehr angenehm zu tragen.

Un très bon pantalon.…

Un très bon pantalon. On apprécie sa technologie RECCO et la poche spéciale pour l'emplacement téléphone ! Le système de ceinture réglable selon votre corpulence est parfait. Les petites aérations ont été utiles en cas d'effort prolongé. Petit conseil, pour éviter les irritations de la peau, le port d'une sous couche peut être utile.

Bonjour Mathilde et merci de votre retour sur notre pantalon FR500.

Vos remarques sont totalement juste, car vous avez porté ce pantalon à même la peau, ou avec une C1 trop fine pour les température qu'ils faisaient. Sa conception a été réalisée et pensée pour être utiliser avec une fine couche 1. En effet ce pantalon est une hybridation de pantalon ouaté et de pantalon Hard Shell sans aucun apport de chaleur pour favoriser la modularité.

Je vous invite à le retester avec une C1 et ou notre short C2 ( Code: 8588524).

Et si malgré cela vous n'étiez pas satisfaite, sachez que vous pouvez sans aucun soucis échanger ou vous faire rembourser votre pantalon dans votre Décathlon habituel, ou via la procédure Dé

Je reste à votre disposition si besoin.

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 seal from the air and snow. A perfect hold. And constant and regular heat in the lower back.


To stay dry, it is important to wear waterproof pants. But you shouldn't end up wet with perspiration. The vents play an important role in wicking away perspiration. This is why we equipped these pants with 2 zipped air vents and 2 large zippers under the arms (28 cm in size M).


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 Wedzejackets 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. 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.

Product environmental impact comparison score

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.
