Technical Information

Fleece material: Insulates using the air
The fleece component is designed to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture, the air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. It is the brushing of the knit fabric that traps the air.

2-year long-wear guarantee
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to ensure long wear. We guarantee: - resistance to wear from backpacks and moving arms, to delay the appearance of pilling which is common with this material - the solidity of the 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, because we believe that the only way to continuously improve our products is to test them under the real-life conditions that you will experience in use.

Product test
We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: - either a test of our fleeces' material. - or a test on a thermal dummy placed in a temperature chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions that you would encounter in the mountains when walking at 5 km/h. These tests are used to validate our design choices. And we put the 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, do not tumble dry, do not iron

Used for 1 week or less
Don't think it'll last forever but for the £5.99 I paid it's fantastic value! (Mountain warehouse do a similar one at over twice the price.) I'm a 38" chest and normally wear a small but had to go up a size with this one.
