We developed these salopettes for your baby's first sledge rides. It is warm and will provide good protection from cold and snow. Salopettes that are warm, waterproof and lightweight so that your baby can enjoy sledging in the snow without feeling constrained. It is easy to put on thanks to its wide opening.
Our designers use wadding to keep the body warm. This polyester-based synthetic component traps more or less air according to its thickness. So the thicker the wadding, the more air it contains and the warmer it is.
The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in terms of the height in mm of a water column that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more the fabric is waterproof. A component with a waterproof rating of 2000 mm is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 2000 mm column of water. A guarantee of the salopettes' quality.
Put the elastic of the trousers over the boot to prevent snow and draughts from getting inside the boot and trousers.
In order to keep warm and dry, we recommend using the 3-layer rule: Layer 1 or second skin, to stay dry. Layer 2 or insulating layer, to retain the heat. Layer 3 or protective layer, to protect from the weather conditions.
A water-repellent fabric lets water run off its surface, without absorbing it: the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight and warm. You can see drops of water beading and running off the surface of the fabric. The water repellent property is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes).
To reactivate the water repellent property, wash the garment inside out on a synthetic cycle at 30°C and rinse thoroughly. You can use your usual washing powder but no fabric softener. Then leave your jacket to dry flat on a rack in the open air. Finally, turn your garment the right way round and put it in the tumble dryer on low heat for 10 minutes. The heat will reactivate the water-repellent property of the fabric.
A place for entering your child's name in order to personalise the product. A practical feature for finding your ski suit at the crèche.
Preferably store on a hanger, without folding to avoid damaging the fabric coating. Dry thoroughly before storing in a dry and well-ventilated place.
All the sledging products are tested under the real-life conditions for which they are designed: snow, cold and all the conditions you're likely to encounter when sledging. The design teams, product managers, engineers and pattern makers check that the programme for which the product was designed and developed perfectly suits its use in the field.
