By using recycled polyester, no new oil-based resources are used. The waste is recycled into resources that can be used again.
Bulk dyeing or “dope dyeing” incorporates the pigments during the thread manufacture. This technique reduces the environmental impact compared to standard dyeing which takes place once the thread forms a fabric. This requires more water consumption and pollution.
Our MH120 black fleece gilet uses this dyeing process.
FLEECE COMPONENT: Insulation provided by air
The mission of the fleece component is to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture (and the brushing of the knit).
This air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. This component has been laboratory-tested for a comfort temperature from 7 to 10°C without any additional jacket.
GUARANTEED LIFE SPAN OF 2 YEARS
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee:
- the abrasion resistance of the backpack and the arms in movement, so that the pilling associated with this material is delayed
- the strength of the seams
- the resistance of the fleece material after 3 washes
- colour-fastness after washing, when exposed to UV or contact with perspiration.
