VERY COLD WEATHER
What type of padding is used to provide warmth?
Recognised for their high thermal insulation, the down and feathers also provide an excellent weight/warmth/compression ratio. However, the warmth comes from the combination of the weight of the down/feathers and the fill power of the jacket. Indeed, together, they provide you with warmth and insulate you from the cold. (Padding 50% down and 50% feathers in the body, 100 g/m² recycled wadding at the bottom of jacket and arms, 60 g/m² at the collar).
What other components keep you warm, in addition to the filling?
In addition to its filling, your jacket's waterproof zips, snow skirt, collar and adjustable hood and cuffs offer better protection against the cold for a warmer feeling.
What is a membrane and what's it for?
The membrane is a very fine component applied to the inner surface of the outer jacket fabric. This hydrophilic component prevents water from seeping in while wicking away the perspiration produced by the body. The membrane is unbeatable when it comes to staying warm and dry.
How is the waterproof rating of the jacket measured?
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 8000 mm can therefore withstand the pressure exerted by a 8000 mm column of water.
Which parts of the jacket protect me from bad weather?
The 500 jacket has been developed with a sophisticated component and assembly that prevent water from entering and reduce wind chill to help you cope with the weather conditions (rain, snow, wind, etc.) .To validate its waterproof rating, this jacket was tested under a special shower that replicates the conditions skiers have to face. We validated the waterproofing of this product in the field in various weather conditions for several days.
What is the water repellent feature of my jacket for?
The water repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This jacket features water-repellent components that extend its weather resistance. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface. However, this property may deteriorate with use.
How to restore the water repellent feature of your jacket?
Bear in mind that the water repellent feature can be reactivated. To do this, you can use a waterproof spray (sold in our stores): spray the product evenly over the entire garment and allow to dry for 10 to 12 hours.
What is a "breathable" jacket?
This garment wicks away the water vapour produced by your body when exercising. To find out if a fabric is breathable, we measure its total evaporative resistance RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. The 500 jacket has an RET of 11. However, it is the technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh) that Wedze uses that limit condensation inside the garment and maximise breathability.
What is the fit of the 500 jacket?
Slim fit. The sides of the jacket hang down straight and remain parallel without conforming to the shape of your bust. The interior volume means this jacket can be worn in combination with a first and second technical layer.
How to dress to stay warm on the slopes?
To make sure you stay warm and dry, we recommend using the 3-technical-layers rule: - Layer 1 or a second skin, to stay dry. - Layer 2 or an insulating layer, to keep the heat in. - Layer 3 or a protective layer, to protect against bad weather.
How can I prevent snow from getting in when I fall?
The snow skirt (which is automatic), as well as the adjustable cuffs, prevent the entry of snow and air during practice and especially in case of a fall.
How to wash my jacket?
* Wash the jacket inside-out * Machine wash at 30°C, delicate cycke with little detergent and no fabric softener. * Put 2 clean, ideally white, tennis balls in the drum of the washing machine. * Perform a second or third rinse cycle to make sure that any washing product that remains from the previous wash has been eliminated.
How to dry your jacket?
Dry in a tumble dryer (strongly recommended) * Use a gentle or delicate cycle. * Warning, make sure you select a gentle spin cycle. * Dry thoroughly over several long cycles. * Between 2 cycles, shake the down to break up the clumps of feathers which form during washing. If you do not have a tumble dryer, the process is longer. (drying can take 1 to 2 weeks in a dry and flat place). Pat the jacket (at least 4/5 times) to prevent the feathers from forming clumps
Where do the feathers come from?
Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers in accordance with our commitment to using responsible materials. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are raised for their meat and plucked after slaughter. http://sustainability.decathlon.com/faq/
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products.

Store on a hanger and do not fold, as this can damage the waterproofing of the fabric. Dry thoroughly before storing in a dry and well-ventilated place.
All Wed'ze products are created, designed and developed in the Mont Blanc Valley. They are then tested under the same conditions as you would experience in real-life use (snow, cold, powder snow, etc.) The design teams make sure that the programme for which the product is designed and developed, corresponds perfectly to its use in the field.
