Fleece material: Insulation provided by air
The fleece component is designed to trap air in the space formed by its texture; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. The brushing of the knit fabric is what traps the air.
This component has been tested in the laboratory for a comfort temperature ranging from 7 to 10°C without an additional jacket.
Durability warranty of 2 years
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee:
- resistance to wear from rucksacks and moving arms to delay the appearance of piling which is specific to this materia
l- the solidity of seams
- the resistance of the fleece material after 3 washes (size stability)
- colour fading after washing, when exposed to UV or after contact with perspiration.
OUR ECO-DESIGN RESPONSIBILITY
At Decathlon we know that our manufacturing and distribution operations have a significant impact on the environment and we have a responsibility to act. Nothing is perfect, however the use of recycled polyester in manufacturing the fleece material means we can avoid using new oil-based resources. Waste is transformed into resources that can be used again. We work on other initiatives in parallel to reduce our impact even further.
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, rucksacks, etc).
Decathlon is committed to displaying this environmental information.
