Product feature
  1. How can I be sure my jacket will give me proper protection in bad weather?
    The Slide 500 jacket was rigorously developed and assembled to prevent water from entering and to feel the wind less, to help you cope with bad weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.). To check that it is waterproof, this jacket was placed in a special shower reproducing the conditions a skier has to cope with. We approved this product's waterproofing by skiing in different weather conditions for several days.
  2. What is the point of the water repellent property of my jacket?
    The water repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to allow water to run off its surface without seeping in. The Slide 500 jacket is equipped with water-repellent components that prolong its resistance to bad weather. This is an additional technical solution for staying dry for as long as possible on the ski slopes. To remain reliable, this treatment must be renewed regularly using products sold in our stores.
  3. "Coated" jacket: what are the advantages of this coating?
    The coating is a waterproofing 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. So you stay dry for greater comfort while practising your sport.
  4. Water often gets in through the seams. Does my jacket have taped seams?
    In addition to the waterproof fabric, we have enhanced the waterproof rating of the Slide 500 jacket with taped seams. These are waterproof adhesive strips taped to the inside seams of the garment to make it perfectly watertight. These taped seams are located on the areas most exposed to snow, i.e. generally the shoulders and chest.
  5. What is a membrane and what's it for?
    The membrane is a very thin component applied to the inner surface of the outer fabric. It is hydrophilic and blocks the water arriving from the exterior while wicking away the perspiration produced by the body inside. A membrane is essential for staying warm and dry.
  6. How will my ski jacket keep me warm?
    We use wadding for insulation to help keep you warm. This polyester-based synthetic material traps air, the quantity of which will depend on the size of the fibres. Wadding can be standard, high-tech or siliconised, each with different properties: warmth, lightness, flexibility, etc.
  7. What is a "breathable" jacket?
    It is a product that lets the water vapour produced by the body during exercise escape, keeping you dry. To see if a fabric is breathable, we measure its resistance to evaporative heat (RET) in a standardised ISO 11092 test. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. Wed'ze uses high-tech materials and solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh) that help prevent condensation inside the garment. RET of the component of the Slide 500 < 12
  8. How should I dress to avoid feeling cold on the slopes?
    To keep warm and dry, use the 3-breathable-layers rule: 1 ski base layer and 1 under-jacket for keeping warm, 1 ski jacket to protect you from bad weather.
  9. How can I prevent snow from getting in when I fall?
    The snow skirt is a protection system at waist level that closes with press studs at the bottom of the ski or snowboard jacket. It prevents snow and air from entering when on the slopes, especially in the event of a fall.
  10. Where can I put my ski pass when taking ski lifts?
    You no longer need to get out your ski pass! Your sleeve has a ski pass pocket, allowing you to access lifts quickly.
  11. Storm cuffs
    Your ski jacket features cuffs at the wrists. They prevent unpleasant cold draughts and snow from getting inside in the event of a fall.
  12. Ski pass pocket
    You no longer need to get your ski pass out because your sleeve has a ski pass pocket to allow you to access the cable cars quickly.
  13. Snow skirt
    The snow skirt is a protection system at waist level that closes with press snaps at the bottom of the ski or snowboard jacket. It prevents snow and air from entering during practice and especially in case of falling.
  14. Care instructions
    To optimise your jacket's performance and durability, we advise the following: Machine wash separately at 30°C. Synthetic cycle. Turn inside out. Use a small amount of detergent. No softener. Wring out manually. Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place. Do not dry clean. Do not place on a radiator. You can re-waterproof the outer fabric using an aerosol waterproofing spray for fabric. Read the care tag carefully.

  • Great value, but strange fit

    Only just received this so haven't skied in it yet, and first impressions are very good, other than it has a strange tight fit around the middle which seems to be caused by the stitching/elastic of the snow skirt (not my belly!). I'm slim, so could be a problem if you're not. Will take back and see if mine is a one off.
  • Great for the price - but there are better

    It’s a good snowboard coat for the sale price of 59 quid, but for just £20 more, my friend picked up a really great coat with more features and stronger waterproofing from Surfanic. This was a last minute purchase for a last minute holiday so appreciated the prompt delivery and good price. If you’re used to high end gear though, like North Face or whatever, you’re going to miss a lot of the features you get in more expensive coats like:
    - clips to lock the snow skirt to your boarding pants
    - Loops inside the pocket to fasten your keys / gloves to
    - pull cuffs with thumb holes
    - more insulation from thinner material
    - better lugs on zips to make them easier to close with gloves on.

    It’s quite a bulky jacket but it did keep me warm and dry in Chamonix.

    I’ll use it again for indoor slopes or the odd weekend away, but will definitely buy something better in the end of season sales. However If this is the top of yoir budget then it’s pretty good. But check
    out sales at Surfanic, Surfdome and some of the high street retailers too.

    The jacket is pretty good for the money. Looks good I think as I use it every day to work and at weekends rather than skiing. It's kept me warm and dry and good size pockets. So far I can't fault it for the money, although like I say, it's not been used for sport just casual stuff.
