Can I be sure my trousers will protect me well in bad weather?
To tackle bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.) more effectively, these trousers were developed with a component and assembly that prevent water from entering and reduce 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 it for several days' snowboarding under all conditions to validate its waterproofness.
Water often gets in through the seams. Do my trousers have waterproof seams?
As well as the waterproof material, the seams are taped to make the trousers more waterproof. These are waterproof adhesive strips taped to the inside seams of the garment to make it perfectly watertight. These taped seams are present on the areas most exposed to snow.
What's the point of having water-repellent trousers?
The water repellent property of a fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in thanks to a treatment that is applied to its outer surface. The fabric does not become waterlogged, and stays light and warm. This treatment must be renewed during the product’s lifespan, after 2 to 3 washes on average, using products that are available in our stores. All our waterproof trousers for snowboarders receive a water repellent treatment.
What is a membrane and what's it for?
A membrane is a very thin component (between 5 and 25 micrometres) applied to the internal surface of a textile base to give it excellent waterproof and breathable capabilities. Our membrane components don't let water through while allowing the water vapour generated by your body when snowboarding to escape.
How do my trousers keep me warm?
To keep you warm, we use wadding insulation. Wadding is a synthetic component made from polyester which traps more or less air, depending on the length of the fibres. Wadding can be standard, hi-tech or siliconised, each with their own different properties (warmth, lightness, flexibility, etc.).The SNB PA 500 is also equipped with a WARM SEAT technology which reduces the cold felt by the buttocks by 54% when sitting in the snow.
How should I dress to avoid feeling cold on the slopes?
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 retain warmth. The trousers protect you from bad weather. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
How should I look after my product?
To optimise the performance and durability of your product, we recommend 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 watertighting spray.Read the care label.
Product concept & technology
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.
