200g/m2 insulating material on the chest & back with a very soft stand-up collar
Breathable side panels that allow water vapour to pass through RET = 4.5
Freedom of movement
Arms and shoulders in stretch component (9% elastane) for maximum comfort
Only 315 g in size M
Made from 55% recycled polyester
2 closed hand pockets for safely carrying your personal belongings
A thin micro-fleece, perfect for the bottom of a backpack
Jehanne, our stylist, and Paloma, our model maker, have carefully designed the lines of this fleece for a sporty, feminine style.
Paloma tells us: "I wanted to enhance the feminine curves with a relatively slim yet comfortable fit, and a cut that emphasises the waist."
To be well protected from the cold, it has a longline cut, particularly at the lower back. Your hand can also be protected from the cold by a covering thumb loop.
Choose your usual size.
WARMTH IN THE RIGHT PLACE
We have chosen to combine 2 technical materials:
- a recycled "microgrid" material on the chest, back, collar and thumb loop that provides effective protection from the cold like a conventional fleece, but with much greater breathability thanks to its high-tech knit fabric;
- a smooth material that contains elastane, for total freedom of movement with your poles, while ensuring optimal breathability of the arms
WHY CHOOSE RECYCLED POLYESTER?
By recycling plastic bottles or second-hand textiles to produce our polyester, we have reduced the utilisation of oil-based resources while preserving the quality and performance of the material during your mountain hikes.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The environmental impact of the product is calculated based on its entire life cycle and using different indicators. A general score from A to E is provided 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 this environmental information.
HOW IS WARMTH MEASURED?
2 types of tests are carried out to measure the warmth level of our fleeces:
- a material test
- a test on a thermal dummy in a thermal chamber. Here, we reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions you encounter in the mountains during a 5 km/h walk
These tests are used to validate our design choices, and everything is then validated by field testers.
This fleece has a comfort temperature between 10 and 13°C (without a jacket on top).
HOW IS BREATHABILITY MEASURED?
The breathability of a material is its capacity to wick away the water vapour generated by perspiration. During intense effort, it is, therefore, essential to wear very breathable clothing so you do not stay wet.
Breathability is measured by RET, the fabric’s evaporative resistance. The lower the number, the more breathable the fabric:
RET ≤ 3: extremely breathable fabric
RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric
HOW IS DURABILITY TESTED?
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee:
- resistance to wear from backpacks and moving arms to delay the appearance of pilling
- the solidity of seams
- the durability of the fleece material after washing
- colour-fastness after washing, against UV rays or in contact with perspiration.
