Our water-repellent clothing was designed to protect you while cross-country skiing.
Water repellency is a material’s ability to shed water without absorbing it. Water repellency is achieved by treating the fabric’s exterior. This treatment needs to be reapplied during the life of the garment (recommended every three washes).
How to stay warm and dry during cross-country ski outings
We recommend the 3-layer technique.
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: outer layer (jacket) that protects from the elements: wind, snow, and cold.
Adjust the number of layers according to your physical activity and the weather, and make sure that the clothing is breathable.
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
Why should you protect yourself from the wind?
Did you know that the wind can make you feel colder?
With 20 km/h winds, 0°C feels like -10°.
Windproof features reduce windchill by blocking air created by wind combined with the forward motion of your sport.
