At the foot of the Mont-Blanc, our team of hikers eco-designed this low-cost warm and breathable fleece for occasional hiking in the mountains. Warmth without the bulk ! You will appreciate this warm & lightweight fleece made of recycled material that insulates you from the cold in mountains. A essential item for your backpack at a low price.
Knit lets through the water vapour generated by the body. Half-zip collar
Freedom of movement
Stretch fabric for superior comfort in use.
Material made from 100% recycled polyester yarn from plastic bottles.
Very compressible material. An ideal fleece for the bottom of a backpack
Only 212 g in size L.
Wrinkle-free. Machine washable. Quick drying
Fleece component: Insulation provided by air
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. This component was tested in the laboratory for a temperature rating from 7 to 10°C without an additional jacket.
Durability warranty of 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.
OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ECO-DESIGN
At Decathlon, we know that our production and distribution activities have a big impact on the environment. That's why we must take action. Not everything is perfect, but by using recycled polyester to make the material of this fleece, no new oil-based resources are used. The waste is recycled into resources that can be used again. At the same time, we are working on other measures to further reduce our carbon footprint.
Bulk dyeing or "dope-dyeing" is the addition of pigments when manufacturing the textile yarn. This technique reduces the environmental impact compared to a conventional dyeing process, which adds the pigments once the threads have been formed into a fabric and requires a lot of water, polluting it in the process. The black MH100 fleece uses this new dyeing process and we are currently working on ways of replicating this for the other colour versions.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The environmental impact of the product is calculated based on its entire life cycle and using different indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products.
