LEVEL OF PRACTICE
To help keep you warm, we use recycled wadding insulation (60g/m²). This synthetic polyester-based wadding traps more or less air, depending on the size of its fibres, to insulate you from the cold.
The coating is a waterproofing material spread over the inner surface of a fabric. It prevents water from seeping into the garment but allows the water vapour produced by the body's physical activity to escape. So you stay dry for greater comfort while practising your sport.
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 waterproof the fabric. A fabric with a waterproof rating of 3000mm can therefore resist the pressure exerted by a 3000 mm column of water (roughly equivalent to a 2-hour downpour).
These trousers have been developed using a robust component and rigorous assembly that limit wind chill and prevent the passage of water to help you brave all weather (rain, snow, wind, etc). To check their water-resistance, the trousers were placed under a special shower, to reproduce the conditions faced by a skier. We have checked the waterproofness of this product in use in various weather conditions over several days.
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to allow water to run off its surface without seeping in. These trousers feature water-repellent components to improve their resistance to bad weather. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface. However, this property may deteriorate with use.
Remember that water-repellency can be restored. To do this, put the trousers in the dryer on a synthetics programme for 10 to 15 minutes. You can also use a waterproofing spray (sold in our stores): spray the product evenly over the entire garment, then allow to dry for 10 to 12 hours).
It's a garment that is capable of wicking away the water vapour produced by your body when exercising. To see if a fabric is breathable, we measure its resistance to evaporative heat (RET) in a standardised ISO 11092 test. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. The 100 trousers have an RET of 9. However, it is the technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh) that Wedze uses that limit condensation inside the garment and maximise breathability.
To keep your legs warm and dry, 2 layers of clothing are enough: 1 ski base layer to wick away perspiration and 1 pair of ski trousers to protect you from the weather conditions and provide insulation.
The trousers have elasticated gaiters at the ankles to cover the boots. If you fall or come into contact with fresh snow, the seal created by the gaiter keeps the snow out.
Regular fit with an internal volume that allows these trousers to be combined with a technical base layer.
To optimise the performance and durability of your trousers, we recommend: * Machine wash at 30°, synthetic programme. * Turn the product inside out. * Add a small amount of detergent. No softener. * We recommend you wring it by hand. * Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place. Do not dry clean. Do not place on a radiator.
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.
All Wedze products are conceived, 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.
