What are the fabric's water repellent properties?
Your 100 fleece is made water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment lets water run off the surface of the fabric without being absorbed. This prevents the component from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight. This treatment must be renewed several times throughout the product's lifetime. Water repellent treatment products are available in our stores.
What is breathability and the RET index?
The breathability of your 100 fleece corresponds to its ability to let perspiration generated by the body escape. It is measured by its Resistance to Evaporative Transfer (ISO 11092 standard). The RET is a resistance index; the lower the value, the greater the breathability of the fabric. RET between 6 and 9: extremely breathable, between 10 and 13: very breathable, between 14 and 17: breathable, between 18 and 20: not very breathable, over 20: not breathable. 100 Fleece RET < 12
How we measure the warmth of your fleece jacket
Clo is the scale that measures the thermal resistance (insulation) of your fleece. During the test, the garment's component is exposed to a temperature close to body temperature and a controlled external temperature. The clo index reflects the ability of the fleece to retain your body heat inside the garment.
The greater the clo index, the better the component will retain body heat. The clo of our 100 fleece is 0.72
Score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).
Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme.
