A WAXÉ component to look different to all other riders
The main component of the jacket is called WAXÉ. Like denim, this component wears over time depending on how you use it. Your jacket will represent your style and will be different from all the other riders. The new component can also have an appearance and wear that is different to the photo shown.
Can I be sure my jacket will protect me well in bad weather?
To tackle bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc), the jacket was developed with a component and assembly that prevents water from getting in and reduces wind chill. To confirm 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. Does my jacket have taped seams?
In addition to the waterproof fabric, we reinforce the waterproofing of the salopettes 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.
Why is my jacket water repellent?
The water-repellent feature makes water run off the fabric without seeping in thanks to a treatment applied to its outer surface. The fabric does not soak up water and stays light 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 jackets 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 will my jacket keep me warm?
To keep you warm, we use a faux-feather wadding insulation. Wadding is a synthetic component made from polyester which stores more or less air, depending on the length of the fibres. There are standard, technical and silicon coated waddings that have distinct properties (warmth, lightweight, elasticity...). We use 100% recycled wadding to reduce the environmental impact of the product.
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 undergarment must produce and retain warmth. Your hoodie or sweatshirt keeps you warm and the jacket protects you from the weather. All these layers should be breathable in order to evacuate humidity.
How can you stop snow from getting into your jacket?
Our jackets have elasticated snow skirts that can be adjusted at the waist. If you fall or ski in fresh snow, the seal keeps the snow out.
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 water-resistance value on the website different from the one printed inside the jacket?
We designed our jacket by choosing a technical membrane that ensures waterproofness of 15000 mm when you buy it. 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 8000 mm after 5 washes is printed inside the jacket, so that the information remains true even in a few years when you sell your product.
