Our team developed these salopettes for your baby's first sledge rides. Their warmth protects from the cold and snow. Salopettes that are warm, waterproof and lightweight so that your baby can enjoy sledging in the snow without feeling constrained. Easy to get on thanks to the wide front opening.
How can I be sure that my baby is warm when sledging in the snow?
Our designers use wadding to keep the body warm. This polyester-based synthetic component traps more or less air depending on its thickness. The thicker the wadding, the more air it contains and the warmer it is. These salopettes retain warmth during winter sports outings.
How can I be sure that my baby is dry when sledging in the snow?
The resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a waterproof rating of 2,000 mm can therefore withstand the pressure exerted by a 2,000 mm water column. A quality guarantee for these salopettes.
How can I stop snow from getting in my boots?
Put the elastic of the trousers over the boot to prevent snow and draughts from getting inside the boot and trousers.
How to dress your babies so they stay warm on your sledging outings?
To keep warm and dry, just apply the 3 technical layers rule: Layer 1 or base layer, to stay dry. Layer 2 or an insulating layer, to keep in the heat. Layer 3 or a protective layer, to protect against bad weather.
What is the water-repellent feature?
A water-repellent fabric lets water run off its surface, without absorbing it: the fabric does not soak up water and stays light and breathable. You can see drops of water beading and running off the surface of the fabric. A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes).
How to restore the water-repellent properties?
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 air-dry completely on a drying rack. 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.
Where can I write my baby's name on these winter salopettes?
Space to write your kid’s name in order to personalise the product. Handy for finding their salopettes at the nursery this winter.
Store on a hanger and do not fold as this could damage the fabric coating. Dry thoroughly before storing in a dry, well-ventilated place.
All Sledge products are tested under the actual conditions of use for which they were designed: in the snow, in the cold, and in all possible conditions you could come across when sledging. The design teams, product managers, engineers and pattern makers check that the programme for which the product was designed and developed perfectly matches its use in the field.
