Can I be sure my pants will protect me well in bad weather?
To face different weather (rain, snow, wind...), the Free 700 pants have 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.
What's the point of having water-repellent pants?
Water repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. Wed’ze pants have water resistant materials to prolong their resistance to bad weather and to prevent water from getting into the pants. It is an additional technical solution to make sure you stay dry as long as possible throughout the day. You should repeat this treatment regularly using products sold in our stores to maintain these properties.
I often hear people talk about "coated" pants. What are the advantages of this coating?
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
Water often gets in through the seams. Do my pants have waterproof seams?
As well as the waterproof material, we use sealed seams to make the Free 700 jacket more waterproof. 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.
What is a membrane and what's it for?
The membrane is a very fine component applied to the inner surface of the outer fabric. This hydrophilic component prevents water from seeping in while wicking away perspiration. The membrane is unbeatable when it comes to staying warm and dry.
How will my ski pants keep me warm?
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 and suppleness...)
What are "breathable" pants?
It's the ski pants' 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.
How should I dress to avoid feeling cold on the slopes?
In order to stay warm and dry, we recommend that you wear 2 layers. Your ski undergarment and your pants. Your ski pants protect you from bad weather. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
How can I prevent snow from getting in when I fall?
Attach the jacket's snow skirt to your pants. Pants often have small eyelets at the waist to which you can attach the jacket's snow skirt. So you will prevent snow and air from entering during practice and especially in case of falling.
How can I be sure my pants are strong enough?
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.
Can I compare the products' environmental impact?
"The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different 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.

All Wed'ze products are designed and developed in the Mont Blanc Valley. They are then tested under identical usage conditions to those 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.
