The inside of your trousers is brushed – a tried and tested method for retaining heat. The principle is simple: the mesh of the component is structured to create volume and trap air, which is naturally insulating. It is exactly the same principle as animal fur or feathers.
With their slim fit and stretchy fabric, your trousers focus on freedom of movement, which is essential when hiking on snow. The zipped pockets secure everything that needs to be at hand (tissues, lip balm, keys...).
The water-repellency of a fabric is its ability to let the water slide off its surface, without absorbing itIn this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable and warmThe water-repellent property is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of a fabricThis treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend with each wash).Products (spray or liquid) designed specifically for this purpose are available in our stores.
In winter, it is important to be protected from both moisture (snow, rain) and wind, because the latter can significantly cool the body, regardless of whether you are physically active or standing still. We designed your trousers with a windproof and water-repellent outer fabric, to cope with all winter conditions. We also added a lace-up fastening to protect you from snow getting in.
To be properly dressed in winter, whatever your activity, we recommend using the 3-layer principle: layer 1: The high-tech base layer transfers moisture away from the body to keep your skin dry. layer 2: The second layer (fleece, sweater) provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards. layer 3: The jacket protects you from the outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind. The whole outfit must be breathable in order to eliminate moisture.
To ensure the durability of our products, we carry out tests on the components selected: resistance to rubbing and abrasion, colour fastness, resistance to repeated washing. All these tests have been carried out on the component on your trousers.

Store in a dry place away from light. We advise you to avoid chemicals, such as bleach, which could have repercussions on the thermal insulation of clothing.
We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: - a test of the fabric of the trousers. - a thermal test on a mannequin in a thermal chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (5km/h) and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains when walking at 5km/h. These tests validate our design choices and we then adapt the thermal insulation where you need it most.
