TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

Cut

This fleece has a loose fit with batwing style sleeves. You can wear a technical base layer underneath, in direct contact with the skin, to be better protected from the cold. It has also been designed to be worn just underneath our windproof/waterproof jackets like the women’s MH500.

HOW DOES THE MATERIAL INSULATE YOU FROM THE COLD?

The fleece component is designed to trap air in the space formed by its texture (qualified as "brushed fleece” when it is made of pile fabric); this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.

HOW IS WARMTH MEASURED?

2 types of tests are carried out to measure the warmth level of our fleeces:
- a material test
- a test on a thermal dummy in a thermal chamber. Here, we reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions you encounter in the mountains during a 5 km/h walk
These tests are used to validate our design choices, and everything is then validated by field testers.
This fleece has a comfort temperature between 7 and 10°C (without a jacket on top).

HOW IS DURABILITY TESTED?

We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee:
- resistance to wear from backpacks and moving arms to delay the appearance of pilling
- the solidity of seams
- the durability of the fleece material after washing
- colour-fastness after washing, against UV rays or in contact with perspiration
