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.

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
Keep on a hanger or folded in a clean, dry place

Maintenance tips
Wash at 40°C. Do not use fabric softener, tumble dry or iron

I've got one red and black. Both are amazing and value for money during the cold winds. No complains and both look good on the pictures.

Most uk purchasers will be aware of the difficulties of purchasing the right size for hiking gear I have been a small a medium and a large with other companies. These are smaller than expected ( I bought a large expecting it to bury me but ended up requesting a return for an XL. This was done very quickly with no fuss and I am very satisfied with both the product and decathlon

Used for 7 to 12 months
I have 2 of these and the Red seems to have kept it's plushness a bit better than the Black one. Eco-friendly thermal layer for the price of a bottle of wine. NIce high collar, good back length, thumb loops would make it even better. Eventually, with enough daily use, it starts bobbling and pilling telling you it's time for a new one!
Nice but beware of the fit

Used for More than 2 years
I have purchased a number of these fleeces over the years and find that ive graduated towards the less basic ones as they just look a bit better. They dont have silly addons/extra pockets and just do a good job at keeping you warm.

Sizing can vary a bit, i have a mix of mediums and smalls and most of them are a snug fit - try before buy but other than that its a "id buy another"
Sizing absolutley terrible

The material and the product was just what I required when ordering. I ordered the large size, however, although it stated large on the fleece it must have been made for a child. In fact, I gave it to my 14 year old very slim build grandson, which it fits perfectly.
May I suggest you seriously look into your sizing's and upgrade. I am still looking for a fleece, however it won't be from your company
Material good, looks good
Sizing is three or four sizes out
Great fleece but order 2 sizes up
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I am normally a Medium in M&S, Fat Face, White Stuff etc so I ordered a Large size after reading the reviews. When I tried the Large size on it was skin tight. I returned it for an XL and that fitted well apart from the sleeves being too long. As I can turn back the sleeves it's not a problem and the garment has started to be my fleece of choice as I seem to be wearing it all the time! Great VFM and love the mottled effect.
Love the mottled effect and great value for money
Sizing up the creek but order 2 sizes up
