Hood over helmet designed to offer maximum protection ensuring freedom of movement.
Adjustable to fit 3 sizes in a single movement, using a single tightening toggle located behind the head.
Tightening on the wrist and cuffs with thumb loop to prevent air and snow from getting in.
Tightening at the bottom of the jacket and snow skirt to also prevent air and snow from getting in.
3D Mesh on the back for better moisture wicking.
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from becoming waterlogged and remains light, breathable and warm.
A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface.
This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend every 3 washes). All Wedze jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
Component's waterproof properties.
The resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. For example, a fabric with a waterproof rating of 10000 mm is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 10000 mm column of water
Breathability of a component.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity can escape and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = little or no breathability.
What is a membrane or coated component?
The coating is akin to a paint applied inside the fabric that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less expensive than a membrane and requires a liner to protect it. The membrane is a kind of very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being more flexible, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than a coating.
How do we make a garment waterproof?
The waterproof properties of the garment are related to its fabric, seam sealing and assembly design.
We then carry out shower tests on our garments.
This garment has been validated in a shower test under 100 L of water / sqm / hour for 3 hours.
This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain storm.
How do we make a garment breathable?
In addition to the breathability of the fabrics used, we employ technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh) improving the overall ventilation of our jackets and trousers designed for Freeride skiing. These ventilation systems regulate the temperature inside the garment while also helping to eliminate the perspiration generated by the body during physical activity.
Product environmental impact comparison score
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifespan, using various indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks etc.). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products.

What is the RECCO® system?
All our Freeride and All-Mountain jackets and trousers are equipped with the RECCO® system.
With RECCO® technology, you can be located in the event of an avalanche. Someone who is equipped with RECCO® reflectors and is buried in the snow can be quickly and accurately located by the emergency services using the RECCO® tracker. RECCO® reflectors are not a substitute for an AVD. The RECCO® technology works as a complementary measure, increasing the chances of being found in time.
Tutorial on how to wash your waterproof garment
We recommend that you follow these guidelines at every wash in order to retain all the technical features of your garment.
After three washes, restore the water repellent properties with a waterproof spray or wash-in product.
