Product feature
  1. How can I be sure my jacket will give me proper protection in bad weather?
    The 580 jacket has been developed with extremely sturdy fabric and assembly that prevent water getting in and reduce the sensation of wind to better help you face bad weather (rain, snow, wind). To check that it is waterproof, this jacket was placed in a special shower reproducing the conditions a skier has to cope with. We approved this product's waterproofing by skiing in different weather conditions for several days.
  2. What is the point of the water repellent property of my jacket?
    The water repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to allow water to run off its surface without seeping in. The 580 jacket is equipped with water-repellent properties that extend its resistance to bad weather. This is an additional technical solution for staying dry for as long possible on the ski slopes. To remain effective, this treatment must be renewed regularly, using products sold in our stores.
  3. ‘Coated’ jacket: what are the advantages of this coating?
    The coating is a waterproofing material spread over the inner surface of a fabric. It prevents water from seeping into the garment but allows the water vapour produced by an active body to escape. So you stay dry for greater comfort while practising your sport.
  4. ‘breathable’ jacket?
    It is a product that lets the water vapour produced by the body during exercise escape, keeping you dry. To see if a fabric is breathable, we measure its resistance to evaporative heat (RET) in a standardised ISO 11092 test. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. Wed'ze uses high-tech materials and solutions (zips, ventilation, mesh) that help prevent condensation inside the garment. RET of the 580 jacket < 12
  5. What is a membrane and what's it for?
    The membrane is a very thin fabric applied to the inner surface of the outer fabric. It is hydrophilic and blocks the water arriving from the exterior while wicking away the perspiration produced by the body inside. A membrane is essential for staying warm and dry.
  6. How can I prevent snow from getting in when I fall?
    The snow skirt is a protection system at waist level that closes with press studs at the bottom of the ski or snowboard jacket. It prevents snow and air from entering when on the slopes, especially in the event of a fall.
  7. How will my ski jacket keep me warm?
    We use wadding for insulation to help keep you warm. This polyester-based synthetic material traps air, the quantity of which will depend on the size of the fibres. Standard, technical and silicone wadding are available, each with its own distinct properties: warmth, lightness, flexibility, etc.
  8. How should I dress to avoid feeling cold on the slopes?
    To keep warm and dry, use the 3 breathable-layers rule: 1 base layer, 1 fleece to retain heat and 1 ski jacket to protect you from bad weather.
  9. Water often gets in through the seams. Does my jacket have taped seams?
    In addition to waterproof fabric, we strengthen the watertight properties of the jacket with taped seams. These are waterproof adhesive strips taped to the inside seams of the garment to make it perfectly watertight. These taped seams are present on the areas most exposed to snow (shoulders and chest).
  10. Where can I put my ski pass when taking ski lifts?
    You no longer need to get out your ski pass! Your sleeve has a ski pass pocket, allowing you to access lifts quickly.

    As a keen purveyor, collector and officionado of men's ski jackets, I am very... very pleased with this Wedze Men's 700 slide. The jacket is vibrant enough to match my glowing personality and I have received numerous compliments (2!) from my friends (also 2) throughout my week away skiing. The numerous pockets provide ample room for me to carry all of the supplies necessary for my many "big days out" on the mountain and I often stop other skiiers to demonstrate this! All in all a thoroughly wonderful piece of kit and I am suitably overjoyed to have made such a wonderful addition to my burgeoning collection.
