For tackling bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.), the jacket has been developed with a component and assembly that stops water getting through and reduces wind chill. The waterproof rating is measured by placing the product in a special shower that replicates the real-life conditions encountered by snowboarders in use. Finally, we wore them for several days' snowboarding under all conditions to validate their waterproofness.
As well as the waterproof material, taped seams are incorporated to strength the waterproofing of the jacket. The adhesive and waterproof strips are placed on the seams inside the clothing to make it perfectly watertight. On this product, these waterproof seams are used in the areas the most exposed to the snow (hoods, shoulders).
The water-repellent treatment of a fabric makes water to run off its surface without seeping in thanks to a treatment applied to its outer surface. The fabric does not become waterlogged, so it stays light and warm. This treatment must be renewed during the product’s lifespan, after 2 to 3 washes on average with the help of the products available in our stores. All our waterproof snowboard jackets have a water-repellent treatment.
A breathable coating is a coating applied to a fabric in the form of a paste or liquid which creates a protective film. A breathable coating serves as a waterproof barrier that allows water vapour through.
To keep you warm, we insulate the product using wadding. Wadding is a synthetic component made from polyester which stores more or less air, depending on the length of the fibres. Wadding can be standard, hi-tech or siliconised, each with different properties (warmth, lightweight, supple, etc.). We use 100% recycled wadding to reduce the environmental impact of the product.
In order to keep warm and dry, we recommend using the 3-layer rule. The principle is simple: use 3 layers of fabric, each having a particular function. Your under-garment must insulate and retain warmth. Your hoodie or sweatshirt provides you with warmth whereas the jacket protects you from bad weather. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
To optimise your jacket's performance and durability, we advise the following: Machine wash separately at 30°C. Synthetic cycle. Turn inside out. Use a small amount of detergent. No softener. Wring out manually. Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place. Do not dry clean. Do not place on a radiator. You can re-watertight the outer fabric using a fabric waterproofing spray. Read the care label.
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 Snowboard products by Decathlon are tested in the real-life conditions for which they have been designed: in the snow and cold, all the conditions you may encounter while snowboarding (and skiing). The design teams, product managers, engineers and garment designers ensure the product's design corresponds perfectly to its real-world use.
