Technical information

Can I be sure that my fleece is warm enough for my winter hikes?

The inside of your fleece is brushed – a tried and tested method for retaining heat. The principle is simple: the component knit is structured to add volume to trap air, which is naturally insulating. It is exactly the same principle as animal fur or feathers.A small extra, this jacket has cuffs at the wrists to stop cold air from entering.

What is the fleece component and why is it so warm?

Fleece fabric with synthetic fibres to reproduce the performance of wool: warmth, thermal insulation yet still lightweight. It is soft, comfortable, dries quickly and lets the skin to breathe.

Is a soft and pleasant component fragile?

To ensure the durability of our products, we perform tests on components. For example, we check that the fleeces do not pill, that colours do not run and that repeated washing does not affect the properties of the fabric. The abrasion resistance of a fabric is measured by a test called the Martindale test. This machine rubs a sample of the fabric on a reference surface with a weight at the end.

Good ventilation for optimal thermal comfort

Thermal comfort is a balance between the warmth of the garment and its ability to let the body breathe. If moisture accumulates, you will feel the cold during the less active phases (rest, descent).

How does my fleece protect me from outdoor conditions?

In winter, it’s very important to be protected from both damp (snow, rain) and wind, because the latter cools the body enormously, both in activity and at rest. This fleece jacket has a laminated construction inside which improves thermal protection. There is no windproof membrane.

A comfortable, practical snow hiking fleece

With its loose fit, your fleece favours freedom of movement, essential for hiking on snow. The zipped pockets keep everything that needs to be at hand safe (tissues, lip salve, gloves, keys...). This fleece jacket is very versatile, halfway between a second and third layer. The essential item in your snow hiking outfit.

How to dress properly for snow hiking?

To dress properly in winter, whatever your activity, we recommend using the 3-layer principle:
layer 1: The high-tech base layer transfers moisture away from the body to keep your skin dry.
layer 2: The second layer (fleece, sweater) provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards.
layer 3: The jacket protects you from the outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind.
The whole outfit must be breathable in order to eliminate moisture.

STOCK ADVICE

Store in a dry, dark place. We recommend you avoid using chemicals such as bleach, which could cause deterioration in the garment’s thermal insulation.

TESTS

We carry out 2 types of thermal testing: - a test of the material of our fleeces. - a test on a thermal dummy in a thermal chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions that you would encounter in the mountains walking at 5 km/h. These tests validate our design choices and we then adapt the thermal insulation where you need it most.

Approved By

All our products are tested in the field by user representatives and these tests are run in parallel to our laboratory tests. By conducting this comprehensive and demanding dual testing process, the technical features and design of our QUECHUA products is being continually improved. Your regular feedback is also taken into account to constantly improve our range.
