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 testing: - either a test of the material of our fleeces. - or testing on a thermal manikin in a thermal chamber. We recreate the temperature, wind (5km/h) and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains hiking at 5km/h in our tests. These tests allow us to validate our design choices. So we can adapt our thermal insulation where you most need it.

Stockage tips
store 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

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
