To help withstand bad weather (rain, snow, wind etc.) FREE 300 trousers have been developed and produced using a special component to prevent water from entering. To check its water resistance, the trousers have been placed under a special shower that reproduces the conditions a skier could be confronted with.
Water repellent fabric
Water repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. Wed'ze trousers are made with a water-repellent component that prolongs resistance to bad weather and prevents water from getting in. 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.
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 vapour produced by an active body to escape. So you will stay dry and comfortable while hitting the slopes
Waterproof main seams
Only those seams most exposed to the rain/snow are made watertight with special tape. This often applies to buttocks, thighs and knees. The same goes for zips, they are critical points for garment waterproofing: they must be completely waterproof when closed.
So that skiers feel "neither too hot, nor too cold", the garment must be able to adapt to the body's physical movement and the outside environment. 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 fibres used.There are different types of wadding, including standard, technical and siliconized, which all have different properties (for warmth, lightness and suppleness...)
To find out if a fabric is breathable, its evaporative resistance, called RET (standardized test ISO 11092), is measured. That's its ability to let the vapour produced by the body during physical exertion escape, to avoid having too much water on the skin. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. Wedze uses technical components and solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh) preventing condensation inside the garment. FREE 300 trousers RET: 12
We take particular care in choosing all the elements used in our products. The durable materials and sturdy assemblies are tested during highly instructive testing days! In particular, our trousers are all equipped with edge protection panels at the ankles to minimise any damage to the trousers from the ski edges.
Thermal insulation recommendation
To be prepared for all types of weather, layering is the best option. However, you shouldn't do it with just any kind of garments: In direct contact with the skin, choose high-tech, warm but also breathable liner-trousers (for perspiration wicking). There's nothing worse than having wet legs due to sweating when out skiing. Avoid cotton and go for something synthetic, more breathable, better ventilated...
Colours: : Blue Also available: : Navy blue
Store on a hanger and do not fold, as this can damage the fabric coating. Make sure that the garment is completely dry before storing in a dry and well-ventilated place.
All Wed'ze products are designed and developed in the Mont Blanc Valley. They are then tested in conditions identical to their target use (snow, cold weather, powder etc.) Our design teams ensure that the product is fit for purpose and able to withstand real-life conditions.
