Can I be certain that my jacket will protect me from bad weather?
To face different weather (rain, snow, wind...), the FREE 500 jacket has been developed and produced using a special component to prevent water from entering. To confirm the waterproofing, this product was placed under a special shower, reproducing the conditions a snowboarder in actual conditions. We completed many days snowboarding, in all conditions, to confirm the product waterproofing.
What is the purpose of the jacket's water-repellency?
Water repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. This prevents fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (every 2 or 3 washes). All Wed'ze waterproof jackets are given a water-repellency treatment.
"Coated" jacket: what are the advantages of the coating?
A breathable coating covering the textile support with a paste or liquid, to create a protective film.The breathable coating forms a waterproof barrier which allows water vapor to pass.
What is a membrane and what is it used for?
A membrane formed of a very fine material (between 5 and 25 micrometrics) applied to the inner side of a fabric, providing great waterproofing and breathability abilities.
Water often enters via the seams. Does my jacket have waterproof seams?
As well as the waterproof material, taped seams are incorporated to strength the waterproofing of the FREE 500 jacket. 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.
How does the Free 500 jacket keep me warm?
We use wadding for insulation to keep you warm. The polyester-based synthetic component traps a certain amount of air, dependent on the fibee size.There is standard, technical and silicone wadding with specific properties (warmth, lightness, stretch...). The FREE 500 pants also offer an additional layer of warmth on buttocks for greater comfort when seated in the snow.
How can I be sure my jacket is strong?
That’s why we take particular care in choosing all the elements that make up our products to guarantee the best possible protection.We know how much energy is expended during a day's skiing or snowboarding.
What is a "breathable" jacket?
It’s the ski jacket’s ability to allow moisture produced during exercise to escape to the outside, keeping you dry. The aim is to stay dry. Wed'ze uses components which limit condensation inside the item.
How should I dress so I don't feel cold on the 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 base layer should generate and keep in the warmth. Your pullover or sweater provides warmth, whereas the jacket protects you from bad weather.All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
How do I stop snow getting in my jacket?
Our jackets have elasticated snowskirts which are attached to the waist. During snowfalls or with fresh snow, the sealing stops snow from getting in.
Can I compare the environmental impact of 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.
