What are the components that make my trousers warm?
To keep you warm, we use insulation made from recycled wadding (60 g/sqm). Depending on the size of the fibres, this synthetic polyester-based component stores more or less air, which insulates you from the cold.
What is the coating?
The coating is a waterproof material spread over the inner surface of a fabric. It prevents water from seeping into the garment but allows the water vapour produced by an active body to escape. You stay dry and therefore more comfortable during your sports activity.
How is the waterproof rating of my trousers measured?
The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in terms of the height in mm of a water column that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a 3000 mm waterproof rating is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 3000 mm column of water (roughly equivalent to a 2-hour downpour).
How can I be sure my trousers will give me proper protection in bad weather?
These trousers have been developed with a sophisticated component and assembly that prevent water from entering and reduce wind chill to help you cope with the weather conditions (rain, snow, wind, etc.) .To validate its waterproof rating, these trousers were tested under a special shower that replicates the conditions skiers have to face. We validated the waterproofing of this product by skiing for several days in a variety of different conditions.
What is the water repellent feature of my trousers for?
The water repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. These trousers have water repellent components that prolong their resistance to inclement weather. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface. However, this property may deteriorate with use.
How to reactivate the water repellent feature of your trousers?
Bear in mind that the water repellent feature can be reactivated. To do this, put the trousers in the tumble dryer on synthetic programme for 10 to 15 minutes.
You can also use a waterproof spray (sold in our stores): spray the product evenly over the entire garment, then leave it to dry for 10 to 12 hours).
What are "breathable" trousers?
It is a product that allows the water vapour generated by your body to escape during physical effort. To find out if a fabric is breathable, we measure its total evaporative resistance RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. The 100 trousers have an RET of 13. However, it is Wedze's high-tech solutions (zips, vents, mesh) that reduce condensation inside the garment and maximise breathability.
How should I dress to avoid having cold legs on the slopes?
To keep your legs warm and dry, 2 layers of clothing are enough: 1 ski base layer to wick away perspiration and 1 pair of ski trousers to protect you from the weather conditions and provide insulation.
How can I stop snow from getting inside my trousers?
Our trousers have elasticated gaiters at the ankles that cover the boots. If you fall or come into contact with fresh snow, the seal created by the gaiter keeps the snow out.
What is the fit of the 100 trousers?
Regular fit with space inside for wearing the trousers with a high-tech base layer.
