Can I be sure that my T-shirt is warm enough for my winter hikes?
The inside of your T-shirt is brushed – a tried and tested method for retaining warmth. The principle is simple: the component knit is structured to add volume to trap air, which is naturally insulating. It is exactly the same principle as animal fur or feathers.
Sizing and fit
Close-fitting cut. Select your usual size or one size larger if you prefer looser fitting clothing.
How to dress properly for snow hiking?
To dress properly in winter, whatever your activity, we recommend using the 3-layer principle:
layer 1: The high-tech base layer transfers moisture away from the body to keep your skin dry.
layer 2: The second layer (fleece, sweater) provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards.
layer 3: The jacket protects you from the outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind.
The whole outfit must be breathable in order to eliminate moisture.
Resistance to wear and abrasion test: for example, we check that the fleeces do not pill using tests conducted in laboratories. Colour retention test: the colour-fastness is verified to ensure that the colours cannot bleed. Ageing test: repeated washing should not affect the fabric's properties, behaviour, thickness or appearance.
How does my product warranty work?
This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the sales receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.
What is the environmental impact of the products and how can you compare them?
A product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators.
A score from A to E is produced to help you make a responsible choice.
This rating is used to easily identify the products with the best environmental performance.
This is done by making a comparison between products of the same family (e.g. backpacks).
Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of this environmentally-friendly labelling approach.
