Which of the pants' components provide warmth?
To help keep you warm, we use recycled wadding insulation (60 g/m²). This synthetic polyester-based wadding traps more or less air, depending on the size of its fibres, to insulate you from the cold.
What is a membrane and what's it for?
The membrane is a very thin component applied to the inner surface of the outer fabric. This hydrophilic component prevents water from seeping in while wicking away the perspiration produced by the body. The membrane is unbeatable when it comes to staying warm and dry.
How is the waterproofness of your pants measured?
We measure a fabric's resistance to a column of water expressed in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A fabric with a waterproof rating of 8,000 mm is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by an 8,000 mm column of water (roughly equivalent to a 2-hour downpour).
How can I be sure my pants will give me proper protection in bad weather?
These pants have been developed using a robust component and rigorous assembly that limit wind chill and prevent the passage of water to help you brave any weather (rain, snow, wind, etc.). To check their water resistance, the pants were placed under a special shower, to reproduce the conditions faced by a skier. We have checked the waterproofness of this product in use in various weather conditions over several days.
What is the purpose of your pants' water-repellent feature?
A fabric is water-repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without it seeping in. These pants feature water-repellent components to improve their resistance to bad weather. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface. However, this property may deteriorate with use.
How to restore the water repellency of your pants?
Remember that water repellency can be restored. To do this, put the pants in the dryer on a synthetics cycle for 10 to 15 minutes. You can also use a waterproof spray (sold in our stores): spray the product evenly over the entire garment, then allow to dry for 10 to 12 hours.
What are "breathable" pants?
It's a garment that is capable of wicking away the water vapour produced by your body when exercising. To see if a fabric is breathable, we measure its resistance to evaporative heat (RET) in a standardized ISO 11092 test. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. The 500 pants have an RET of 11. However, it is the technical solutions (zippers, vents, mesh) that Wedze uses that limit the condensation inside the garment and maximize breathability.
How should I dress to avoid having cold legs on the slopes?
To keep your legs warm and dry, you need 2 layers: 1 skiing base layer to wick away perspiration and 1 pair of ski pants to protect from the weather and provide warmth.
How can you stop snow from getting into your pants?
The pants have elastic gaiters at the ankles to cover the shoes. If you fall or come into contact with fresh snow, the seal created by the gaiters keeps the snow out.
What is the fit of the 500 pants?
Regular fit with an internal volume that allows these pants to be combined with a technical base layer.
How to wash your pants
To optimize the performance and durability of your pants, we recommend: * Machine wash at 30°, synthetics cycle. * Turn the product inside out. * Add a small amount of detergent. No softener. * We recommend you wring them out by hand. * Dry on a hanger in a warm, well-ventilated place. Do not dry clean. Do not place on a radiator.
