The product's environmental footprint is calculated for its entire life using various indicators. An rating from A-E is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing and contrasting products of the same type.

For braving bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.), this jacket has been developed with a component and assembly that stops water getting through and reduces wind chill. The waterproof rating is measured by placing the product in a special shower that replicates the real-life conditions encountered by snowboarders during use. Finally, we wore it for several days' snowboarding under all conditions to validate its waterproofness.
As well as the waterproof fabric, we further enhance the jacket's water resistance with taped seams. These are waterproof adhesive strips taped to the inside seams of the garment to make it perfectly watertight. These taped seams are present on the areas most exposed to snow (hood, shoulders).
The water repellent property of a fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in thanks to a treatment that is applied to its outer surface. The fabric does not become waterlogged, and stays light and warm. This treatment must be renewed during the product’s lifespan, after 2 to 3 washes on average, using products that are available in our stores. All our waterproof snowboard jackets have a water-repellent treatment.
A breathable coating is a paste or liquid applied to a fabric that creates a protective film. The breathable coating is a waterproof barrier that allows the water vapour generated by the body when snowboarding to escape.
To keep you warm, we use wadding insulation. Wadding is a synthetic component made from polyester which traps more or less air, depending on the length of the fibres. Wadding can be standard, hi-tech or siliconised, each with their own different properties (warmth, lightness, flexibility, etc.).
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 under-garment must retain warmth. Your hoodie or sweatshirt provides you with warmth while the jacket protects you from the elements. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
Our jackets have elasticated snow skirts that can be adjusted at the waist. If you fall or if you are skiing in fresh snow, the seal keeps the snow out.
To optimise your product's performance and durability, we advise the following: Machine wash separately at 30°C. Synthetic cycle. Turn inside out. Use a small amount of detergent. No softener. Wring out manually. Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place. Do not dry clean. Do not place on a radiator. You can re-watertight the outer fabric using a fabric watertighting spray.Read the care label.
Store on a hanger and do not fold, as this can damage the fabric coating. Dry thoroughly before storing in a dry and well-ventilated place.
All of Decathlon's Snowboard products are tested in the real-life conditions for which they have been designed: in the snow and cold and all the conditions you may encounter while snowboarding (and skiing). The design teams, product managers, engineers and garment designers ensure the product's design corresponds perfectly to its real-world use.
