Our design team is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our designers create and develop products that are appealing, simple, and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.

Fleece is a good thermal insulator. Pockets of air are created through a brushing process that raises the fabric's fibres; usually this is done on both sides of the polyester fabric. This layer of air is what helps to trap body heat. The extent of the brushing, the shape, and the thickness, depend on the material's intended use (environment and sport activity). Fleece is very lightweight (compared with wool) and thus extremely well suited to sports activities.
Component developed by Stratermic:
Stratermic components are guaranteed to be warm and lightweight. Stratermic also means quality, durability, and products that are rigorously tested both in the lab and in real-world sporting activities.
Resistance to wear test: for example, Stratermic makes sure that there is no piling on the fleece. Colour retention test: We thoroughly test the dyeing process to make sure that the dye does not bleed when coming into contact with saliva. Resistance to repeated washing test: Repeated washing should not affect the fabric's properties, behaviour, thickness or appearance.
