Can I be sure my trousers will properly protect me in bad weather?
To help you cope with adverse weather conditions (rain, snow, wind, etc.), the trousers have been designed with a component and assembly process that keeps water out and reduces wind chill. To confirm the waterproofing, this product was placed under a specially designed shower that reproduces the conditions encountered by a snowboarder in the field. Finally, we have spent a few days snowboarding, in all conditions, to validate the waterproofing of the product.
Water often gets in through the seams. Do my trousers have waterproof seams?
In addition to the waterproof fabric, we reinforce the waterproofing of the trousers with taped seams. These are waterproof adhesive strips taped to the inside seams of the garment to make it perfectly watertight. All the product's seams are taped.
What is the purpose of your trousers' water-repellent feature?
The water repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it thanks to a treatment applied to the outer surface of the fabric. The fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight and warm. This treatment must be renewed during the life of the product, after 2 to 3 washes on average, using the products available in our stores. All the waterproof trousers that we design for snowboarders are water repellent.
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 do not let water in and allow out the water vapour generated by your body when snowboarding.
How do my trousers keep me warm?
To keep you warm, we use wadding insulation. Wadding is a synthetic component made from polyester which stores more or less air, depending on the length of the fibres. Wadding can be standard, hi-tech or siliconised, each with different properties (warmth, lightness, elasticity, etc.) .The SNB PA 500 is also equipped with the WARM SEAT technology which improves the insulation at the seat by 54% when sitting in the snow.
How should you 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: wear 3 layers of clothing, which each have a specific function. Your under-garment should produce and retain warmth. Your protective shorts keep you warm (and protect you from knocks, whereas the jacket protects you from the weather. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
How do I look after my product?
To optimise the performance and durability of your product, we recommend: Machine wash separately at 30°C. Synthetic cycle. Turn the product inside out. Use a small amount of detergent. No softener. We recommend you wring it by hand. Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place. Do not dry clean. Do not place on a radiator. You can restore the water resistance of the outer fabric using a fabric waterproofing spray. Read the care label.
Why is the waterproofing value online and the one in the trousers different?
We designed our trousers by choosing a technical membrane that ensures waterproofness of 10000 mm when you buy them. After each wash the membrane becomes less efficient, which is why we also test the product to guarantee optimal waterproofing even after 5 washes. This value of 5000mm after 5 washes is printed inside the trousers, so that the information remains true even in a few years when you sell your product.
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.
