Technical Information

1
Can I be sure that my fleece is warm enough for my winter hikes?
The inside of your fleece is brushed - a tried and tested method for retaining heat. The principle is simple: the component weave is structured to add volume to trap air, naturally insulating. It is exactly the same principle as animal fur or feathers. A little extra, this jacket is equipped with cuffs at the bottom of the sleeve that limit the entry of cold air.
2
What is the fleece component and why is it so warm?
The fleece fabric, made of synthetic fibres, aims to reproduce the performance of wool: warmth and thermal insulation, while also being lighter. It’s soft, comfortable, dries quickly and lets the skin breathe.
3
Isn’t a component so soft and pleasant rather fragile?
To ensure the durability of our products, we perform tests on the components. We check, for example, that the fleece does not pill, the colours do not run, and that repeated washing does not alter the properties of the fabric. The abrasion resistance of a fabric is measured using a test called the martindale test. This machine rubs a sample of the fabric on a reference surface with a weight on its end.
4
Good ventilation for optimal thermal comfort.
Thermal comfort is a balance between the warmth of the boot and its ability to let the foot breathe. If moisture accumulates, you will feel the cold during less active phases (breaks, descent). We designed this fleece for occasional intense practice by adding a back opening and stretch side inserts which extend under the arms. A good warmth/ventilation balance for optimal thermal comfort.
5
How does my fleece protect me from outdoor conditions?
In the winter, you need to be protected both from the damp (snow, rain) and wind, as the latter cools the body down a lot, both when exercising and resting. We have fitted your fleece jacket with waterproof inserts on the shoulders, cuffs and hood. Your jacket can therefore be used even in wet weather or under a light snow shower.
6
A comfortable and practical snow hiking fleece.
With its slim fit and stretch fabric panels on the sides, your fleece gives you freedom of movement, essential for snow hiking. The zipped pockets keep everything safe that needs to be at hand (tissues, lip salve, gloves, keys...). The waterproof hood and shoulders make your fleece jacket very versatile, halfway between the second and third layers. The essential element of your snow hiking outfit.
7
The ideal outfit for your snowshoe hikes!
We designed this fleece as one of the elements of the ideal outfit for your hikes off the beaten track: the SH500 outfit. Equipped with your SH500 fleece, your SH520 trousers, SH520 shoes and your SH500 snowshoes, you can enjoy your snow trips in any weather. Set off light and well equipped!

How to dress properly for snow hiking?
To dress correctly in the winter, no matter what your activity is, we recommend that you apply the 3 layer principle: layer 1: The technical base layer will enable damp to be wicked away to keep skin dry. layer 2: The second layer (fleece, pullover) provides warmth and wicks away the damp. layer 3: The jacket protects you from outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind. The outfit must be breathable to wick away damp.

Test
All our models are tested in the field by target users. We supplement this with laboratory tests conducted in parallel. By conducting this comprehensive and demanding dual testing process, the technical features and design of our QUECHUA products is being continually improved. We use your regular feedback to constantly improve our range.

Product test
We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: - a test of the material of our fleeces. - a thermal mannequin test in a thermal chamber. Here, we reproduce the conditions of temperature, wind (5km/h) and humidity that you encounter in the mountains when walking at 5km/h. These tests help us validate our design choices and thus adapt the thermal insulation where you need it most.

Stockage tips
Store in a dark, dry place. We advise you to avoid chemicals, such as bleach, which could adversely affect the thermal insulation of the clothing.
