The purpose of the fleece component is to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture (qualified as 'brushed' when it consists of loops); this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.
Durability warranty of 2 years
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee:
- resistance to abrasion caused by backpacks and moving arms, thereby delaying the emergence of pilling
- the strength of the seams
- the resistance of the fleece material after 5 washes (dimensional stability)
- colour fastness after washing, when exposed to UV light or on contact with perspiration.
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).
