The pants for all snow adventures A good ski jacket is only half the battle. Anyone who wants to defy the elements and ascend as king or queen of the snow field, the Alps and snowball fights needs the right legwear. Pants that show who’s boss when damp and cold conditions try to creep in. <br><br>Our Crusade ski pants are 100% waterproof and, thanks to toasty PrimaLoft® Eco lining, provide perfect protection for every outdoor activity all winter long. Pre-shaped, with soft but thoroughly robust material, the pants leave plenty of freedom of movement for all kinds of frolicking, rollicking and toddling in the snow. <br><br>And thanks to the namuk Overall Connection System, which allows all namuk jackets and pants to be zipped together regardless of size, color and season, never again will tears be shed because of snow slipping into pants. <br><br>We could give speeches about our pants – but who wants to hear that? Not Indiana Jones and Indiana Jane. What these two would love to hear about, however, are the secret pockets for keys, pacifiers, treasure maps and chocolate coins. And the garbage pocket, to store the not-so-yummy trash.
Overall Connection System
After all, the Overall Connection Zipper (Litin) lets us connect our Chip and Snick rain jackets (starting with the 2021 generation) with all Snow and Dan rain pants. This creates an absolutely weather-proof overall for all elements and every event: For walks in the woods with school when it’s wet and chilly but not cold enough for snow pants? You need rain pants plus Litin plus ski jacket (*angels singing*)! For the “I’m hottttttt” child who sits in the snow for hours building igloos? Ski pants plus Litin plus rain jacket over a fleece jacket (*angels singing*)!
There’s always something left over, whether it’s the last bits of a snack or just a paper bag. We integrated a special garbage pocket for just these things. Once at home, the pocket can be turned inside out to empty it, then washed.
Waterproof to 15,000mm water gage
These membranes withstand water pressure equivalent to a depth of 15 meters and don’t let water penetrate even after hours of playing in the rain. Such high technical standards in children’s clothing are not a given, though it’s just when digging, horsing around and running that kids be protected from getting wet. That’s why we test our material intensively, so kids can stay dry and keep playing, no matter what the weather.
10,000 g/m2/24 h breathability
A membrane is what regulates the climate inside an item of clothing. It must keep out all water, but still actively transport sweat toward the outside. So breathability plays a big part in the comfort of the clothes: After all, no one wants to wear a plastic bag, even if it is waterproof. Our membranes provide superior performance in both respects: Thanks to their high waterproof rating, they withstand even the most adverse weather conditions, and because of their breathability, kids don’t sweat too much - even when building big igloos.
Durable water repellency
All of our technical materials are treated with a DWR coating (durable water repellency). It’s not only water repellent, but also dirt resistant. Many such coatings in outdoor clothing are problematic, however, because of their consequences for the environment. Fluorobarbon (PFC) especially has come under fire. We love nature and are aware of our responsibility to protect it, so we refrain from using C-8 coatings. We work as hard as we can on PFC-free alternatives so we can gradually shift the entire collection. The challenge is finding the right balance between function and ecological sustainability. We are switching over most of our technical products to a more environmentally friendly C-6 DWR, because good, lasting water-repellent function is extremely important for children’s clothing. Most of our products already have a PFOA/PFOS-free DWR, and a part of the collection is already completely free of PFC. We are doing everything in our power to further increase this number.
Fully taped seams
This product features fully taped seams, providing optimal protection from water, because the seams are usually the first point where water penetrates the inner material. So kids stay dry, whether it rains or snows or there’s just a little accident with a juice box.
We only use zippers made by market leader YKK. That lets us guarantee the best quality and optimal performance. And it’s easy-peasy to open the zipper, even in frosty temperatures.
PrimaLoft® Eco insulation
The vegan inuslation material PrimaLoft® Eco is light as a feather, water repellent, keeps kids warm – and is environmentally friendly, too! It’s made of a mixture of recycled materials and PrimaLoft® virgin fibers, which combine to create a breathable, extremely efficient layer of thermal insulation. Depending on the product, the proportion of recycled material is between 60% and 100%. And because the material is so amazingly soft, it guarantees an all-around snuggly feeling – almost like a favorite Teddy bear.
Our anatomically pre-shaped products help maintain as much freedom of movement as possible, even when children have to be packed up nice and warm.
The waistband can be adjusted in height and width for the ideal fit for your child - whether you need to adjust for a growth spurt or just a hearty lunch.
Invisible, reinforced bottom hem
The bottom hems of the legs are reinforced invisibly with tear-proof Cordura material. That makes them robust yet comfortable to wear.
