Made for We have designed this fleece to protect you from the cold on occasional hikes in the mountains. A must-have item at a low price "You will appreciate this recycled fabric fleece, warm and light, to protect you from the cold. An essential, affordable and ideal product that will fit neatly at the bottom of the backpack."
A must have essential for your Mountain Hiking experience. All our Fleeces are made of recycled material. Plastic bottles are recycled into yarn, which is used to make fabric for the Fleece. 9 bottles are recycled to make one Fleece. Quechua Fleeces are lightweight, breathable and stretchable.
Fleece component: Insulation provided by the air trapped inside
The fleece component is designed to trap air thanks to the space 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.
Guaranteed to last 2 years
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee:
- the backpack's resistance to abrasion and arm movements in order to delay pilling, which is a feature of this material.
- the solidity of the seams
- the resistance of the fleece material after 3 washes (dimensional stability)
- colour-fastness after washing, against UV rays or in contact with perspiration.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The products’ environmental impacts are calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing and contrasting products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).
Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating initiative.

We conduct 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.
