10,000 mm membrane and taped seams boosts confidence.
The RET12 breathable material and air vents help to eliminate perspiration.
Freedom of movement
Pre-formed elbows enhance freedom of movement.
Very sturdy design for intensive freeride use.
Tightening – bottom of jacket and cuffs with Velcro. 3D adjustable hood.

3D hood and face protection
This Wed’ze ski jacket has a built-in 3D hood that tightens automatically. It moves with your head without obstructing it, to provide better protection in bad weather. It is compatible with helmets. The preformed hood with a high collar protects the face in case of intense cold or strong wind. The micro-perforated flap covering the zipper makes breathing easier while protecting the face.
Wide and adjustable, designed to fit over gloves. Stretchy cuffs create a perfect seal between the gloves and the jacket.
The snow skirt snaps closed at the jacket hem. It keeps snow and drafts out, especially in case of a fall. Pairs perfectly with salopettes to provide great protection for young freeride fans.
Built-in, removable jacket liner
70 g/m² recycled padding on the back and chest for good insulation. Ergonomic cut. Panel provides warmth and freedom of movement at the arms. Two breathable side panels provide effective ventilation. The padded collar and hood offer excellent comfort at the neck. Added benefit: 2 side pockets!
Water repellency is a material’s ability to shed water without absorbing it. Freeride jackets are made with water repellent materials that prolong their resistance to the weather. An additional technical feature that keeps you dry as long as possible! To maintain water repellency, treat regularly with products sold in our stores.
A fabric’s resistance is measured using water pressure expressed in water column mm (test based on ISO 811). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A fabric with a waterproof rating of 10000 mm is resistant to the pressure exerted by a 10000 mm column of water.
To determine a fabric’s breathability, we test its total evaporative resistance (RET) based on the ISO 11092 standard. This is the garment’s capacity to allow perspiration to escape so that you stay dry. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. For example:
RET <9 = extremely breathable fabric
/ 9 < RET <12 = very breathable fabric /
12 < RET
<20 = breathable fabric / RET >20 = little or no breathability
How do we make a garment waterproof?
The garment’s waterproofness depends on its fabric, seam sealing, and assembly design.
The use of a waterproof zipper or one covered by a waterproof flap.
How do we make a garment breathable?
In addition to breathable materials, other technical features (zippers, vents, mesh) improve the overall ventilation of our Freeride ski jackets and pants. These ventilation features regulate the temperature inside the garment and help to eliminate perspiration.
What is the difference between a membrane and a coating?
This Freeride jacket has a membrane: A membrane is a very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the material waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being flexible, lightweight, durable and often more breathable than a coating, which is similar to having a layer of paint applied to the inside the fabric. It ensures both waterproofness breathability. It's often less expensive than a membrane and must be protected by a lining.
What is the Recco system?
With RECCO® technology, you can be located in the event of an avalanche. Anyone buried in the snow equipped with RECCO® reflectors can be quickly and accurately located by the emergency services using the RECCO® tracker. RECCO reflectors are not a substitute for an avalanche beacon. RECCO technology works as an additional safeguard, increasing the chances of being found in time. All our Freeride jackets and pants are equipped with the RECCO system.
Our products’ environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifespan using various indicators. An ABCDE rating shows the environmental impact of a product. Put forward by ADEME, it takes into account production, transportation, usage, and waste generated at the end of a product’s life. Decathlon displays this information voluntarily to help you identify products with lower environmental impact. Learn more at sustainability.decathlon.com.
Tutorial on how to wash your waterproof garment
Follow these instructions at every washing to preserve all the garment’s technical features.
After three washes, restore the water repellent properties with a waterproof spray or wash-in product.
