Technical information

Cut

The cut was created specifically by our team of designers to be both hi-tech and feminine: slim fitting without hugging the body, so that it looks feminine while letting you move freely when hiking. The length of the back covers the lower back to protect it from the cold and the hood also provides good thermal insulation.

Choose your usual size.

HOW DOES THE MATERIAL INSULATE YOU FROM THE COLD?

The fleece component is designed to trap air in the space formed by its texture (qualified as brushed when it is made of pile fabric); this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.

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
etc.

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

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH

Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products.
Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.

A SCORE FOR COMPARING PRODUCTS' ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

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.

Product design: our expertise

Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts. A great asset for designing quality products for your mountain hikes, and providing you with all our expertise.

TESTS

Our Decathlon Sportslab laboratory, based in Lille, also contributes to the innovation and development of our Quechua products.
It brings together 4 themes, each with their own area and technological tools:
Body shape (3D analysis in particular)
Movement science
Thermal comfort (with its four climatic chambers)
Behavioural and sensory sciences

Approved By

To meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested in the mountains in conditions you will encounter during your hikes.
Pierre, our field test engineer, as well as a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers) test products throughout their development until they go to market.
