This fleece jacket 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 fleece has a comfort temperature between 7 and 10°C (without a jacket on top).
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.The white model is made from 100% recycled polyester and the grey model from 25% recycled polyester.
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. This is applicable for our white and black models.
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 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.
