LEVEL OF PRACTICE
Jehanne, our fashion designer, and Paloma, our model maker, have carefully designed the lines of this fleece for a sporty, feminine style. Paloma tells us: "I wanted to design feminine curves with a fit that is fairly close to the body and comfortable, and a line that emphasises the waist." To be protected from the cold, it has a long fit, particularly over the lower back. Your hand can also be protected from the cold by a covering thumb loop. Choose your usual size.
We have chosen to combine 2 technical materials : - a recycled "microgrid" fabric on the chest, back, collar and thumb loop to efficiently protect you from the cold, like a classic fleece, but with far superior breathability thanks to the technical weave; - a smooth material that contains elastane, so that you forget your movement with poles while guaranteeing optimal breathability on the arms
We carry out 2 types of tests to measure the level of warmth of our fleeces: - a fabric test - a test on a thermal mannequin in a thermal chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (5km/h) and humidity conditions that you will encounter in the mountains on a 5 km/h walk. These tests enable us to validate our design choices and the entire product then undergoes field tests.
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee: - resistance to rubbing from the rucksack and moving arms, to delay the appearance of pilling - strength of the stitching - resistance of the fleece fabric after washing (size stability) - colour fastness after washing, under UV light and when in contact with perspiration.
