Our water-repellent clothing protects you while cross-country skiing.
Water repellency is a material’s ability to shed water without absorbing it. A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be reapplied during the life of the garment (recommended every three washes).
How to dress your kid for their cross-country skiing outings
We recommend using the three-layer technique for your winter activities:
Layer 1: a second skin (technical base layer) that wicks away moisture to keep your skin dry.
Layer 2: an insulating layer (T-shirt, fleece) that provides warmth and wicks moisture outwards.
Layer 3: an outer layer (jacket) that protects against the elements: wind, snow, and cold.
The feet, hands, and head are the most exposed parts of the body and, therefore, the parts most in need of protection.
Why you should protect yourself from the wind
Did you know that the wind can make you feel colder? An outdoor temperature of 0°C with a wind speed of 20 km/h feels like -10°C.Windproof features reduce windchill by blocking air created by wind and the forward motion of your sport.
Why is it important to wear breathable clothing when cross-country skiing?
To avoid dampness, wear breathable clothing that eliminates perspiration.
We measure the evaporative resistance (RET) of our clothing
RET <6: extremely breathable, ideal for the most intense physical effort
RET 6–12: very breathable, suitable for moderate physical effort
RET 12–20: moderately breathable, not particularly pleasant for physical effort
RET >20: not very breathable and therefore not suitable for physical effort
RET >40: not breathable
Our products’ environmental impact
