Can I be sure my jacket will give me proper protection in bad weather?

To withstand bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.), the jacket has been developed with a component and assembly that keep the water out 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 during use. 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 waterproof seams?

As well as the waterproof fabric, we enhance the waterproofing of the jacket with taped seams. These are waterproof, adhesive strips taped to the inside seams of the garment to make it perfectly watertight. For this product, all seams (100%) are waterproof.

Why is water-repellency needed for my jacket?

The water-repellent property of a fabric is its ability for water to form on the surface without being absorbed thanks to a treatment applied to the outer surface of the fabric. 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 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 substrate to give it excellent waterproof and breathable capabilities. Our membrane components stop water getting inside while allowing the water vapour generated by your body to pass through, when snowboarding.

How does my jacket keep me warm?

To keep you warm, we use faux-down 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 silicone-coated, each with different properties (warmth, low weight, elasticity, etc.).

How should I dress to avoid getting cold in the mountains?

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 base layer must produce and retain warmth. Your hoodie or sweatshirt keeps you warm while 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.
