Full zipper on the sides for easily adjusting your outfit.
Freedom of movement
Provide good freedom of movement even when wearing tights underneath.
Windproof component to protect you from the wind and therefore the cold.
RET=6 eliminates the water vapour generated through perspiration.
Standard fit and not too loose-fitting in order to prevent heat loss.
Water-repellent component that makes snow slide off (10,000 schmerber).
Easy to care for
The synthetic material is machine washable and does not require ironing.
470 g for size L.
Standard fit with enough space inside for wearing tights underneath.
So that you are protected during your cross-country skiing outings under 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).
How to stay warm and dry during my cross-country skiing outings?
Follow the 3-layer technique.
Layer 1: second skin (high-tech base layer) that transfers moisture away from your body and keeps your 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, perfect for most intense physical effort
RET btw 6 & 12: very breathable, suitable for moderate physical effort
RET between 12 & 20: moderately breathable, not particularly pleasant during physical effort
RET >20: not very breathable and therefore not very suitable during 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.
"Windproof" components help to reduce this wind chill by blocking the air flow resulting from the actual wind and the forward motion of your activity.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The environmental impacts of the product are calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.).
Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating system.
