SIZING INFORMATION

Standard fit with enough space inside for wearing tights underneath.

WATER-REPELLENT PROPERTIES

So that you are protected during your cross-country skiing outings in the snow, we've designed some water-repellent clothing.
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it.
The water-repellent property is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be restored during the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes recommended).

How to stay warm and dry during my cross-country skiing outings?

We recommend following the 3-layer technique.
Layer 1: second skin (high-tech base layer) that wicks away moisture to keep the skin dry.
Layer 2: insulating (T-shirt, fleece) layer that provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards.
Layer 3: outer protective (jacket) layer that protects from the weather conditions: wind, snow and cold.

Adjust the number of layers to the level of your physical effort and the weather, and make sure that the clothing is breathable.

Why is it important to wear breathable clothing for cross-country skiing?

To avoid getting wet, wear breathable clothing that eliminates water vapour generated by perspiration.
We measure its evaporative resistance = RET
RET <6: extremely breathable, ideal for most the intense physical efforts
RET btw 6 & 12: very breathable, suitable for moderate physical effort
RET btw 12 & 20: moderately breathable, not particularly pleasant when making physical effort
RET >20: not very breathable and therefore not very suitable when making physical effort
RET >40: not breathable

Why should you protect yourself from the wind?

Did you know that the wind makes you feel colder? With an outside temperature of 0°C and a 20 km/h wind, the perceived temperature is -10°C. So-called "windproof" components help to reduce this wind chill by blocking the air flow resulting from the wind itself and the forward motion of your activity.
