Our team of parents of young hikers has designed this fleece to protect your kids from the cold during their outdoor activities. Our bestseller: a warm and comfortable fleece. A must-have to replace every season! Produced from recycled bottles, it is aligned with our eco-design strategy!
The fleece component is designed to trap air in the space formed by its texture; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. It is the brushing of the knit fabric that traps the air.
Durability of the components
Abrasion and friction resistance test: for example, we check that the fleeces do not pill using tests conducted in the laboratory. Colour fastness test: we check colour fastness to ensure that colours do not bleed when coming into contact with saliva. Ageing test: repeated washing must not alter the fabric's original properties, including its shape, thickness or appearance.
Reduced environmental impact
Did you know that a plastic bottle takes 100 to 1,000 years to biodegrade? We developed a fleece knit made of recycled polyester. It comes from recycled industrial scraps and plastic bottles (recycled polyester from 65% bottles and 35% recycled threads). Using recycled polyester means we can avoid using new oil-based resources. Waste is transformed into new, usable resources.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
Decathlon is the first French company to implement environmental ratings. These ratings has been developed with the ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency) as well as other French companies. The ratings are used to assess the environmental impact of product thanks to a scale from A to E with A being the best rating. http://sustainability.decathlon.com
Store folded or on a hanger in a clean, dry place.
We carry out 2 types of thermal testing: - either a test of the material of our fleeces. - or on a thermal dummy in a thermal chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions that you would encounter in the mountains walking at 5 km/h. These tests are used to validate our design choices. So we can adapt our thermal insulation to where you most need it.
