Looking for a 100% waterproof jacket? With its membrane and 100% taped seams, you’ll enjoy downhill skiing whatever the weather! As well as being 100% waterproof, this warm jacket allows you to regulate heat thanks to its zip vent. You'll be able to enjoy your day on the slopes with peace of mind in all weather.
To help to keep you warm, we use recycled wadding insulation (60 g/m² on the arms and 100 g/m² on the body). This synthetic polyester-based wadding traps more or less air, depending on the size of its fibres, to insulate you from the cold.
Which components are added to the padding give it warmth?
In addition to its filling, your jacket's waterproof zips, snow skirt, collar and adjustable hood and cuffs offer better protection against the cold for a warmer feeling.
What is a membrane and what's it for?
The membrane is a very fine component applied to the inner surface of the outer jacket fabric. This hydrophilic component prevents water from seeping in while wicking away the perspiration produced by the body. The membrane is unbeatable when it comes to staying warm and dry.
How is the water resistance of a jacket measured?
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 component with a water resistance of 8000mm therefore withstands the pressure exerted by 8000mm of water.
Which parts of the jacket protect me from bad weather?
The 580 jacket was rigorously developed and assembled to stop water getting in and to prevent wind chill, so you can brave the bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.). To validate its waterproof rating, this jacket was tested under a special shower that replicates the conditions skiers have to face. We validated the waterproofing of this product in the field in various weather conditions for several days.
What is the water repellent feature of my jacket for?
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to allow water to run off its surface without seeping in. This jacket features water-repellent components that extend its weather resistance. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface. However, this property may deteriorate with use.
How to restore the jacket's water-repellent properties?
Bear in mind that the water repellent feature can be reactivated. To do this, put the jacket in the dryer on a synthetic programme for 10 to 15 minutes. You can also use a waterproofing spray (sold in our stores): spray the product evenly over the entire garment, then leave it to dry for 10 to 12 hours).
What is a "breathable" jacket?
This garment wicks away the water vapour produced by your body when exercising. To see if a fabric is breathable, its resistance to evaporative heat (RET) is measured in a standardised ISO 11092 test. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. The 580 jacket has a RET of 11. However, it is the technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh) that Wedze uses, which reduce the condensation inside the garment and maximise breathability.
What is the cut of the 580 jacket?
REGULAR fit. The jacket has sides that fall straight and remain parallel rather than trying to follow the shape of your body. The interior volume means this jacket can be worn in combination with a first and second technical layer.
How to dress to stay warm on the slopes?
To make sure you stay warm and dry, we recommend using the 3-technical-layer rule: - Layer 1 or a second skin, to stay dry. - Layer 2 or an insulating layer, to keep the heat in. - Layer 3 or a protective layer to protect against the elements.
How can I prevent snow from getting in when I fall?
The snow skirt is a protection system at waist level that closes with press studs at the bottom of the ski or snowboard jacket. The snow skirt (which is automatic), as well as the adjustable cuffs, prevent the entry of snow and draughts during practice and especially in case of a fall.
ADDITIONAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION: RECYCLED POLYESTER IS THE MAIN COMPONENT OF THE GREEN JACKET
By recycling plastic bottles or textiles to produce our polyester, we reduce the use of petrol-based resources while keeping the material's breathability in practice.
