CutThis fleece has a fitted cut, without being too close to the body. We recommend you wear a technical undergarment, in direct contact with the skin, to be better protected from the cold. It has also been designed to be worn just underneath our windproof/waterproof jackets like the women’s MH100. Choose your usual size.
HOW DOES THE MATERIAL INSULATE YOU FROM THE COLD?The fleece component is designed to trap air in the space formed by its texture (qualified as "brushed fleece” when it is made of pile fabric); this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.
HOW IS WARMTH MEASURED?2 types of tests are carried out to measure the warmth level of our fleeces: - a material test - a test on a thermal dummy in a thermal chamber. Here, we reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions you encounter in the mountains during a 5 km/h walk These tests are used to validate our design choices, and everything is then validated by field testers. This fleece has a comfort temperature between 7 and 10°C (without a jacket on top).
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCTTextile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced. This process only applies to the colour pink and our goal is duplicated to other colours.
WHY CHOOSE RECYCLED POLYESTER?By recycling plastic bottles or second-hand textiles to produce our polyester, we have reduced the utilisation of oil-based resources while preserving the quality and performance of the material during your mountain hikes.
HOW IS DURABILITY TESTED?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 pilling - the solidity of seams - the durability of the fleece material after washing - colour-fastness after washing, against UV rays or in contact with perspiration.
WHERE DO OUR FLEECES COME FROM?Created in our international design centre at the foot of Mont Blanc in France, this fleece is then manufactured by our suppliers in Vietnam and Bangladesh. We collaborate closely with these partners who have real expertise in the manufacture of our fleeces. Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.
Working conditions in our production workshopsWe guarantee that our suppliers comply with our code of conduct. These suppliers are often located in developing countries where our presence helps to create jobs. By conducting audits and having teams on site, we make sure that the working environment of the employees meets certain quality standards in terms of human respect, personal fulfilment and environmental protection.
