Our designers use wadding to keep the body warm. This synthetic wadding containing polyester stores more or less air, depending on the size of the fibres. So the thicker the wadding, the more air it contains, and the warmer it is.
We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure withstood, the more watertight the fabric. A component with a waterproofing resistance of 2000 mm resists the pressure of 2000 mm of water. A quality guarantee for these mittens.
What is water repellency?
A water repellent fabric allows water to glide over its surface without absorbing it: So the textile does not absorb the water and remains light and breathable. You will observe water droplets form and stream off the fabric’s surface. Fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer part. This treatment needs to be renewed during the garment’s lifetime (every 3 washes).
How do I recativate the waterproofing?
To reactivate the water-repellency of mittens, we recommend you wash your garment inside out on a synthetic cycle at 30°C with abundant rinsing. You can use your usual washing powder but no fabric softener. Then let your jacket dry in the open air, flat on a drying rack. Finally, turn your garment the right way around, and put it in the tumble dryer, at low heat for 10 minutes. The heat will reactivate fabric’s water repellent properties.
There is a space to write your child's name to personalise the product. It's a useful feature for finding your ski suit at the nursery.
Store on a hanger and do not fold, as this can damage the fabric coating. Make sure that the garment is completely dry before storing in a dry and well-ventilated place.
All Luge products are tested under the real conditions of use for which they were designed: in the snow, in the cold and in any of the conditions you're likely to encounter when skiing. The design teams, product leaders, engineers and pattern makers ensure that the programme for which the product has been designed and developed corresponds perfectly to its use on the slopes.
