We have improved this product with an eco-design approach:
Firstly, by using a dope dye process when possible and by using a maximum of recycled fibres.
The black colour is made from 17% recycled material and 49% dope dyed, lowering CO2 impact by 27%.
As for the white colour, it is made of 49% recycled material and 18% dope dyed.
Why use recycled polyester?
By recycling plastic bottles or textiles to produce our polyester, we reduce the use of petrol-based resources while keeping the material's breathability in practice.
What is Dope Dyeing?
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce this environmental impact, we opted for a bulk dyeing process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is being produced.
What components are used to give my trousers warmth?
To help keep you warm, we use recycled wadding insulation (60g/sqm). This synthetic polyester-based wadding traps more or less air, depending on the size of its fibres, to insulate you from the cold.
How is comfortable temperature measures?
We lab-test each of our products so that we can provide you with a indicative value on the item's comfort. This comfort indicator is measured without tights for trousers, and with a thermal t-shirt and a fleece for jackets. The measurement indicated is that of the external temperature in which the testers are neither warm, nor cold. Of course, this perceived temperature varies in line with the intensity of the activity and the metabolism of the individual.
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.
- 1 ski trouser to protect against bad weather and provide warmth.
What is the 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 the body's physical activity to escape. So you stay dry for greater comfort while practising your sport.
How is the waterproofness of your trousers measured?
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. This component has a waterproof rating of 5000mm is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 5000mm column of water.
For skiing, we advise components rated 3000 to 20,000 mm.
Plus, here at Decathlon, we lab-test all of our waterproof products. This product has a score of 2/5.
How can I prevent snow from getting into my trousers?
The trousers have elasticated gaiters at the ankles to cover the boots. If you fall or come into contact with fresh snow, the seal created by the gaiter keeps the snow out.
How should you wash your trousers?
To optimise the performance and durability of your trousers, we recommend:
* Machine wash at 30°, synthetic programme.
* Turn the product inside out.
* Add a small amount of detergent. No softener.
* We recommend you wring it by hand.
* Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place.
Do not dry clean. Do not place on a radiator.
Tips for storage and maintenance
Machine wash - 30° max - gentle
Do not bleach
Tumble dry - low heat
Do not iron
Do not dry-clean
Store preferably on a hanger and do not fold, as this damages the fabric. Dry thoroughly before storing in a dry and well-ventilated place.
TESTS AND WARRANTY
All Wedze products are conceived, designed and developed in the Mont Blanc Valley. They are then tested under identical usage conditions to those you will encounter yourself (in the snow, cold and powder snow, etc.). The design teams make sure the programme for which the product is designed and developed tallies perfectly with its real-world use.
