Made for We designed this fleece to protect you from the cold during your occasional walks in the mountains. A small price while still being feminine. You’ll love its soft material in recycled thread and its insulating power. The ideal fleece to protect you from the cold in the mountains.
Fleece component: Insulation provided by the air trapped inside
The fleece component is designed to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. The brushing of the knit fabric is what traps the air.
100% eco-designed microfleece
Over a year, for the Forclaz 50 women’s fleece, this is the equivalent of:
10 million plastic (1 litre) recycled bottles
621 tons less waste for the planet
43% water saved*
58% energy saved*
54% less CO2 emissions for the planet*
This is where the added value of recycled polyester comes from.
*Compared to older non-recycled thread models
2-year durability warranty
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to ensure their durability. We guarantee:
- resistance to abrasion from a backpack and moving arms, to delay the appearance of pilling which is specific to this material
- the strength of the seams
- the resistance of the fleece material after 3 washes (dimensional stability)
- colour-fastness after washing, under UV or in contact with perspiration.
Store folded in a clean, dry place
We perform 2 types of thermal tests: - a test of the material of our fleeces. - or on a thermal mannequin in a thermal chamber. Here, we reproduce the conditions of temperature, wind (5km/h) and humidity that you encounter in the mountains when walking at 5km/h. These tests are used to validate our design choices. And we adapt the thermal insulation where you need it most.
