RUNNING HIKING MOUNTAIN HIKING
LEVEL OF PRACTICE
This fleece jacket has a fitted cut, without being too close to the body. We recommend you wear a technical undergarment underneath, in direct contact with the skin, to be better protected from the cold. It is also designed to be worn just underneath our windproof / rainproof jackets. Choose your usual size.
The purpose of the fleece component is to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture (qualified as 'brushed' when it consists of loops); this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.
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.
