Can I be sure that my trousers are warm enough for my winter hikes ?
The inside of your trousers is brushed – a tried and tested method for retaining heat. The principle is simple: the component weave is structured to add volume to trap air, naturally insulating. It is exactly the same principle as animal fur or feathers.
What is water-repellency and how can you maintain it?
A fabric's water repellent property is its capacity to make water run off its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, warm and breathable. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifespan (recommended after each wash). Products (spray or liquid) designed specifically for this purpose are available in our stores.
How do my trousers protect me from outdoor conditions?
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 lace-up fasteners to protect you from seeping snow.
How to dress properly for hiking in the snow
To dress properly 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 from the outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind. The whole outfit must be breathable in order to eliminate moisture.
Will my trousers withstand regular use over the long term?
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.
How does my product warranty work?
This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the sales receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.
What is the environmental impact of the products and how can you compare them?
The environmental impact of the product is calculated based on its entire life cycle and using different indicators. A score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of a similar type. Decathlon is committed to this approach.

Store in a dry place without exposure to light. We advise you to avoid using chemicals such as bleach, which could cause deterioration in the garment’s thermal insulation.
We carry out 2 types of thermal testing: - 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.
