Technical information

Cut

This fleece gilet has a fitted cut, without being too close to the body. We recommend you wear a technical undergarment, in direct contact with the skin, to be better protected from the cold. It has also been designed to be worn just underneath our windproof/waterproof jackets like the women’s MH100.

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 fleece” 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 gilet has a comfort temperature between 7 and 10°C (without a jacket on top)

OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT

Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced.

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.

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.
