How will this jacket keep my kid warm?
We carry out a comparative study in a thermal laboratory in walking conditions in light winds (5 km/h).
The comfort temperature is the calculated air temperature where 80% of users have a "slightly warm" thermal sensation.
For this jacket, it’s -16°C.
However every individual feels the cold differently.
Fleece component:Insulation provided by air
The fleece component is designed to trap air in the space formed by its texture. this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. It is the brushing of the knit fabric that traps the air.
How does my jacket protect me from outdoor conditions?
Your jacket is designed with a waterproof outer component that keeps out water and wind (Before washing:8000 Schmerbers on the hood, shoulders and bottom of the back, 5000 Schmerbers on the chest and sleeves).To keep you warm in winter you must also protect your extremities (head, hands, feet). The warm, waterproof hood, the tightening at the cuffs and the high collar prevent the cold from entering. Two pockets protect your hands from the cold.
How to dress properly for snow hiking?
To dress properly in winter, whatever your activity, we recommend using the 3-layer principle:
layer 1: The high-tech base layer transfers moisture away from the body to keep your skin dry.
layer 2: The second layer (fleece, sweater) provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards.
layer 3: The jacket protects you from the outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind.
The whole outfit must be breathable in order to eliminate moisture.
How can I be sure that my jacket is 100% waterproof?
We designed your jacket with a coating on the outer fabric to make it waterproofThe resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm (ISO 811 standard).The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a waterproofing resistance of 3,000 mm resists the pressure of 3,000 mm of water (Schmerbers).Validated in a shower test under 60L/sqm/hour of water which is roughly equivalent to a 2 hour rain showerTest carried out before washing.
Water often gets in through the seams. Does my jacket have waterproof seams?
Your jacket is waterproof thanks to the fully taped seams. Waterproof tape is added to the seams inside the garment to make them watertight so that water cannot enter through the more vulnerable areas.
We validated the waterproofing with a shower test specially designed to replicate the conditions of a two-hour shower. We also wore it in the field in all weather conditions to make sure that it is suited to your activities.
The fabric is made waterproof and windproof by applying a coating or membrane to the inside. Indeed, a waterproof fabric has the necessary technical characteristics to be considered windproof. Wind protection is very important because of the significant chill effect that wind can have on the body, whether you are active or at rest.
How to preserve the technical qualities of my jacket?
A fabric's water repellent property is its capacity to make water run off its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, warm and breathable. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifespan (recommended after each wash). Products (spray or liquid) for this purpose are available in our stores.
2 secure hand pockets in the jacket + 1 mesh inner pocket. 1 secure inner phone pocket in the fleece. 1 adjustable, waterproof and padded attached hood.
Will my jacket withstand regular use over the long-term?
To ensure the durability of our products, we perform tests on components: resistance to rubbing and abrasion, colour fastness, resistance to repeated washing. All these tests have been carried out on the component on this jacket.
Directions for use
Using the 3-in-1 system.
To combine the jacket and fleece, there are loops in the collar and on the fleece's cuffs. Inside the jacket, in the same places, there are tabs that fit into the loops.
This is how the jacket and fleece become one.We recommend you wash the outer jacket and inner jacket separately.
