Technical Information

1
Fleece material: Insulates using the air
The fleece component is designed to trap the air thanks to the volume created by its texture, this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. It is the brushing of the knit fabric that traps the air.
2
Durability
Keeping control of the pilling is what guarantees the garment's thermal insulation over time. This fleece has the benefit of "ceramic" treatment in order to delay and reduce pilling.

Test
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our designers create and develop products that are appealing, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.

Product test
We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: - either a test of our fleeces' material. - or on a thermal manikin in a temperature chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains when walking at 5 km/h. These tests are used to validate our design choices. And we adapt our thermal insulation where you most need it.

Stockage tips

Ordered an XL after seeing others comments. The size guide says XL is 120/123 cm, i measured the chest on the XL delivered but it came in at approx 110cm, more like an M/L than an XL Needless to say i couldn't even get my arms in let alone do it up. Would recommend getting 2 sizes larger.
Looks well made and the lining promises to be warm
Sizing info is way out!
Excellent fleece, works great as a mid-layer.

Used for 3 to 6 months
I originally had a micro fleece. 200g verison but needed a warmer one for winter. This solved my problem for the most part. I could really do with the thicker one for the really cold days (-2 and below feel). This works in the temperature they advise and is of great quality.
Warmth, style. Cuffs not too tight. Cost.
Not very windproof. Get's sweaty with sports.
