Technical information


This fleece jacket has a fitted cut. We recommend you wear a technical undergarment, in direct contact with the skin, to be better protected from the cold.
This fleece jacket has also been designed to be worn underneath our windproof/waterproof jackets like the women’s MH500 waterproof jacket.


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.


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.


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).


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.


Created in our international design centre at the foot of the Mont Blanc in France, this fleece is then manufactured and assembled by our suppliers in China and Vietnam.
These are partners that have genuine expertise in making our tents and with whom we are in close collaboration.
Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.

We guarantee that our suppliers comply with our code of conduct. These suppliers are often located in developing countries where our presence helps to create jobs.
By conducting audits and having teams on site, we make sure that the working environment of the employees meets certain quality standards in terms of human respect, personal fulfilment and environmental protection.
