Why is my jacket water repellent?
The water-repellent feature makes water run off the fabric without seeping in thanks to a treatment applied to its outer surface. The fabric does not soak up water and stays light and warm. This treatment must be renewed during the life of the product, after 2 to 3 washes on average, using the products available in our stores. All the waterproof jackets that we design for snowboarders are water repellent.
This Snowboarding jacket is designed for regular snowboarding, so it has all the pockets required:
_ 2 side pockets secured with a zip fastening,
_ 1 secured outer pockets secured with a zip fastening,
_1 inside pocket secured with a zip fastening, with earphone outlet,
_1 skipass pocket on the left sleeve secured with a zip fastening.
Hood rolls under the helmet
Falls happen when snowboarding and snow can enter the jacket. To limit this unpleasant experience, the collar and hood were designed together.
So that the hood can be used as a scarf and keep the snow out, fold the hood in 4 and velcro it so that it stays up and fills the gap under the helmet.
The collar should be closed normally, up to the top, to tighten the jacket.
Hood fits above the helmet
The hood of this jacket is designed to be worn above the helmet, in high winds or heavy snowfall, ...
In this position, open the collar of the jacket by 10 cm, place the hood above the helmet and close the collar using the gusset (velcro fastening). The gusset shelters the mouth and nose.
