Which of the trousers' components provide warmth?
To help keep you warm, we use recycled wadding insulation (60g/m²). This synthetic polyester-based wadding traps more or less air, depending on the size of its fibres, to insulate you from the cold.
What is a coating?
The coating is a waterproofing material spread over the inner surface 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. So you stay dry for greater comfort while practising your sport.
How is the waterproofness of your trousers measured?
The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in terms of the height in mm of a water column that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A fabric with a waterproof rating of 3000mm can therefore resist the pressure exerted by a 3000 mm column of water (roughly equivalent to a 2-hour downpour).
How can I be sure my trousers will give me proper protection in bad weather?
These trousers have been developed using a robust component and rigorous assembly that limit wind chill and prevent the passage of water to help you brave all weather (rain, snow, wind, etc). To check their water-resistance, the trousers were placed under a special shower, to reproduce the conditions faced by a skier. We have checked the waterproofness of this product in use in various weather conditions over several days.
What is the purpose of your trousers' water-repellent feature?
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to allow water to run off its surface without seeping in. These trousers feature water-repellent components to improve their resistance to bad weather. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface. However, this property may deteriorate with use.
How can you restore the water-repellency of your trousers?
Remember that water-repellency can be restored. To do this, put the trousers in the dryer on a synthetics programme for 10 to 15 minutes.
You can also use a waterproofing spray (sold in our stores): spray the product evenly over the entire garment, then allow to dry for 10 to 12 hours).
What are "breathable" trousers?
This is a product that can release 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 trousers have an RET of 9. However, it is the technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh) that Wedze uses that limit condensation inside the garment and maximise breathability.
How should I dress to avoid having cold legs on the slopes?
To keep your legs warm and dry, 2 layers of clothing are enough: 1 ski base layer to wick away perspiration and 1 pair of ski trousers to protect you from the weather conditions and provide insulation.
How can I prevent snow from getting into my trousers?
The trousers have elasticated gaiters at the ankles to cover the boots. If you fall or come into contact with fresh snow, the seal created by the gaiter keeps the snow out.
What is the fit of the 100 trousers?
Regular fit with an internal volume that allows these trousers to be combined with a technical base layer.
How should you wash your trousers?
To optimise the performance and durability of your trousers, we recommend:
* Machine wash at 30°, synthetic programme.
* Turn the product inside out.
* Add a small amount of detergent. No softener.
* We recommend you wring it by hand.
* Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place.
