We designed water-repellent clothing to protect you during your cross-country skiing outings.
A fabric’s water repellency is its ability to make water run off its surface without being absorbed.
The water-repellent property is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be reapplied throughout the garment’s lifetime (we recommend every three washes).
How to stay warm and dry during your cross-country skiing outings
We recommend using the three-layer technique for your winter activities:
Layer 1: a second skin (high-tech base layer) to wick away moisture, keeping your skin dry.
Layer 2: an insulating layer (T-shirt or fleece) to provide warmth and transfer moisture outwards.
Layer 3: an outer protective layer (jacket) to protect against weather conditions: wind, snow, and cold.
Adjust the number of layers based on the level of physical effort 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 when making physical effort
RET >20: not very breathable and therefore not suitable when making 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? An outdoor temperature of 0° with a wind speed of 20 km/h feels like -10°. Windproof components help reduce this chill effect by preventing air circulation caused by the wind itself or the relative speed of the activity.
Our products’ environmental impact
The product’s environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle 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.
