Technical information

Warmth and breathability technology

Positioned warm pads provide good thermal protection for your Freeride skiing days.
This concept means you keep a wide area where the 3 layer membrane can wick away your perspiration.
A perfect compromise between completely padded trousers and 3 layer trousers with no extra warmth.
Warmth and modularity support you on your freeride ski runs throughout the season.

Additional features

Wide elasticated waistband to guarantee:
- Perfect airtightness against draughts and snow
- Perfect support
- Constant, regular warmth in the lower back


In order to stay dry, it is important to have waterproof trousers, but you mustn't trap the moisture generated through perspiration.
The vents play an important role in wicking away perspiration.
This is why we have equipped these trousers with two ventilation zips and two large zips along the thighs (28 cm in size L).

Water repellency

Water-repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from becoming waterlogged and remains light, breathable and warm. A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend every 3 washes). All our Wedze clothing has received a water-repellent treatment.

Component waterproofing

The resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a waterproof rating of 10,000 mm can therefore withstand the pressure exerted by 15,000 mm of water.

Breathability of a component

To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity can escape and the higher the fabric's breathability.
For example:
RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric
9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric
12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric
RET > 20 = little or no breathability.

What is a membrane or coated component?

The coating is akin to a paint applied inside the fabric that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. The membrane is a kind of very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that requires a lining to protect and make the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being more flexible, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than a coating.

How do we make a garment waterproof?

The waterproofing of the garment is related to its fabric, seam sealing and assembly design.
We then carry out shower tests on our garments.

Waterproofness/Shower test

This garment has been validated in a shower test under 100 L of water / sqm / hour for 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain storm.

How do we make a garment breathable?

In addition to the breathability of the fabrics used, we employ technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh) improving the overall ventilation of our jackets and trousers designed for Freeride skiing. These ventilation systems regulate the temperature inside the garment while also helping to eliminate the perspiration generated by the body during physical activity.

Your product is repairable

This product is repairable.
We commit to repairing your product free of charge for the duration of the warranty. Whatever it is, fixings, seams, zips, etc. This service is offered in your usual store.
If, however, we can’t repair your product (non-repairable production defect), you can exchange it or get a refund.

What is the RECCO® system?

All our freeride ski jackets and trousers are equipped with the RECCO® system.
With RECCO® technology, you can be located in the event of an avalanche. Someone who is buried in the snow can be quickly and accurately located by the emergency services using the RECCO® tracker and reflectors. RECCO® reflectors are not a substitute for an AVD. The RECCO® technology works as a complementary measure, increasing the chances of being found in time.

Tutorial on how to wash your waterproof garment

We recommend that you follow these guidelines at every wash in order to retain all the technical features of your garment.

After three washes, restore the water repellent properties with a waterproof spray or wash-in product.

Our team of designers is based at the foot of the Mont-Blanc, near many ski resorts in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, because we believe that the only way to continuously improve our products is to test them under the real-life conditions that you will experience in use.
