Can I be sure my jacket offers good protection in bad weather?
For tackling bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.), the 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 in use. Finally, we wore them for several days' snowboarding under all conditions to validate their waterproofness.
Water often gets in through the seams. Do my trousers have taped seams?
As well as the waterproof material, taped seams are incorporated to strength the waterproofing of the jacket. 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 (buttocks, hips).
What is the water repellent treatment of my jacket for?
The water-repellent treatment of a fabric makes water to run off its surface without seeping in thanks to a treatment applied to its outer surface. The fabric does not become waterlogged, so it stays light and warm. This treatment must be renewed during the product’s lifespan, after 2 to 3 washes on average with the help of the products available in our stores. All our waterproof snowboard jackets have a water-repellent treatment.
"Coated" jacket: what are the advantages of this coating?
There's a label at the top of the back lining on which you can write your child's name to personalise the product. A useful trick for finding your jacket when skiing, in the nursery or at school, Breathable coating involves covering a textile support with a paste or liquid in order to create a protective film. A breathable coating serves as a waterproof barrier that allows water vapour through.
How will my ski jacket keep me warm?
To keep you warm, we insulate the product using wadding. Wadding is a synthetic component made from polyester which stores more or less air, depending on the length of the fibres. Wadding can be standard, hi-tech or siliconised, each with different properties (warmth, lightweight, supple, etc.).
How should I dress to avoid feeling 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 under-garment must insulate and retain warmth. Your hoodie or sweatshirt provides you with warmth whereas the jacket protects you from bad weather. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
How can I stop snow from getting into my jacket?
Our jackets have elasticated snow skirts that can be adjusted at the waist. If you fall or ski in fresh snow, the seal keeps the snow out.
How should I look after my product?
To optimise your jacket'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 waterproofing spray. Read the labels carefully.
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.
