Outdoor ski clothing is an essential item for skiing, so how can you choose high-quality outdoor ski clothing? Let me introduce to you the various quality indicators of outdoor ski clothing! Helping you choose the perfect outdoor ski wear.

1. Cashmere content. Down is composed of feathers (hair) and down (down). Down content is the proportion of down in down, generally expressed as a percentage, ranging from 5% to 95%. The down content of outdoor ski clothing is generally above 80%. Under normal circumstances, the content of the down can also be seen on the hangtag. When selecting, touch and pinch the product with your hands to test its softness, such as softness and integrity. If it's a rough piece, filling is better.

2. Filling amount. Down fill refers to the total weight of the filling. Generally, the down filling amount of outdoor ski suits is about 250-450 grams, depending on the target design. Down filling and down content are two complementary indicators, which are closely related to the thermal insulation performance of down jackets. However, when choosing, you should not just look at the amount of cashmere, but also consider the total area of the piece.

3. Volume. Fill power is an important measure of warmth. Under the same weight, the larger the volume, the better the thermal insulation performance. Generally, the fill power of outdoor ski clothing is 600-800P.

4. Fabric. Outdoor ski clothing fabrics are divided into waterproof coating (membrane) fabrics; high-density waterproof fabrics; ordinary woven fabrics plus anti-flannel fabrics. Waterproof coating (membrane) fabric is similar to jacket fabric, has waterproof and breathable properties, and is generally used in professional alpine ski wear. High-density water-repellent fabrics. The density of this type of fabric is very high, generally above 290T. It has windproof, water-repellent, breathable and other properties. Ordinary woven fabrics and anti-fleece fabrics generally use lower density nylon or polyester. When making, add anti-lint cloth on the inside of the fabric, or brush a layer of anti-lint glue on the inside of the fabric.
