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 year durability
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 piling which is specific to this material- the solidity of seams- the resistance of the fleece material after 3 washes (size stability) - colour fading after washing, when exposed to UV or after contact with perspiration.

Composition
Main fabric : 100.0% Polyester (PES)

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 products that are better 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.

The size is off, I usually get Size S , Got this in M - should have got size L or XL, Also it's worth only its price as its super thin and not that good looking. Looks better in pic than in reality.
very cheap
Response of the brand
Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 20 fleece and I apologise for the delayed response. I also apologise for the discomfort caused by the sizing and material thickness. I shall pass your comments on to the product manager. If you still own the fleece and remain dissatisfied, please drop into your local store where we can find the best solution for you. I would highly recommend the Forclaz 50 fleece; for the extra could of pounds it’s a great alternative. You can see them here.
