Technical Information

1
Cut
Jehanne, our stylist, and Paloma, our model maker, have carefully designed the lines of this fleece for a sporty, feminine style. Paloma tells us: "I wanted to enhance the feminine curves with a relatively slim yet comfortable fit, and a cut that emphasises the waist." To be well protected from the cold, it has a longline cut, particularly at the lower back. Your hand can also be protected from the cold by a covering thumb loop. Choose your usual size.

WARMTH IN THE RIGHT PLACE
We have chosen to combine 2 technical materials: - a recycled "microgrid" material on the chest, back, collar and thumb loop that provides effective protection from the cold like a conventional fleece, but with much greater breathability thanks to its high-tech knit fabric, - a smooth material that contains elastane, for total freedom of movement with your poles, while ensuring optimal breathability of the arms

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.

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 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).
6
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.
7
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.

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.

Test
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.

Product test
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
