CORRECT: 5000 mm-rated coating and partially-taped seams.
Insulation from extra thick recycled wadding.
Water-repellent outer fabric that does not become saturated with water.
4 pockets: 2 hand pockets, 1 ski pass, 1 interior.
A soft, warm collar for guaranteed protection and comfort.
Ease of use
Elasticated tightening at the cuff of the sleeve to prevent snow getting in.
What type of padding is used to provide warmth?
To help keep you warm, we use recycled wadding insulation (100g/m² on the arms and 150g/m² on the body). This synthetic polyester-based wadding traps more or less air, depending on the size of its fibres, to insulate you from the cold.
Aside from the padding, which of the jacket's components provide warmth?
In addition to the padding of your jacket, the partially sealed seams, the sleeve adjustment and the collar offer even more insulation from the cold and wet, for a greater feeling of warmth.
"Coated" jacket: what are the advantages of this coating?
The coating is a waterproofing substance spread over the inside 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. You stay dry and more comfortable during your sporting activity.
How is the waterproofness of the jacket measured?
We measure a fabric's resistance to a column of water expressed in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A fabric with a waterproof rating of 5000mm is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 5000mm column of water.
Which of the jacket's features offer protection from bad weather?
The 100 jacket was rigorously developed and assembled to prevent water from entering and reduce wind chill so that you can cope with bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.). We have checked the waterproofness of this product in use in various weather conditions over several days.
What is the purpose of your jacket's water-repellent feature?
A fabric is water-repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without it seeping in. This jacket features water-repellent components that extend its resistance to bad weather. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface. However, this property may deteriorate with use.
How to restore the water repellency of your jacket?
Remember that water repellency can be restored. To do this, put the jacket in the dryer on a synthetics programme for 10 to 15 minutes. You can also use a waterproof spray (sold in our stores): spray the product evenly over the entire garment, then allow to dry for 10 to 12 hours).
What is a "breathable" jacket?
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 jacket has an RET of 12. However it is the technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh) that Wedze uses, which limit the condensation inside the garment and maximise breathability.
What is the fit of the 100 jacket?
Regular fit. The jacket has sides that fall straight and remain parallel without trying to follow the shape of the bust. The interior volume means this jacket can be worn in combination with a first and second technical layer.
How should you dress to stay warm on the slopes?
To make sure you stay warm and dry, we recommend using the 3-technical-layer rule: layer 1 or second skin, to stay dry. Layer 2 or the insulating layer, to keep the heat in. Layer 3 or the protective layer, to protect against bad weather.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental footprint is calculated over its entire lifespan using various 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, rucksacks, etc.) Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating system.

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 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.
