    Excellent fleece

    I have 3 of these and they are really good for running and mountain biking, I would order a size bigger than you are used to though as they are really fitted.

    Bought this top in august, but in the blue colour, very good top for hiking. Warm without weight and a very good fit. Wore this walking up wansfell pike on Sunday (18/09/16) and unfortunately it's started to pill around the waist and back, especially where it's in contact with my rucksack. The product description also states that it won't crease, again my jacket now has crease marks around the waist where it was folded into my rucksack. I would recommend this top to anyone looking for a warm lightweight jacket on the premise it's not worn with anything that may rub against it.

Approved by
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 products that are better than ever.
We carry out 2 types of thermal testing: - either a test of the material of our fleeces. - or testing on a thermal manikin in a thermal chamber. We recreate the temperature, wind (5km/h) and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains hiking at 5km/h in our tests. These tests allow us to validate our design choices. So we can adapt our thermal insulation where you most need it.

Fleece material: insulated thanks to air
The fleece component features a space-creating texture which helps lock in air; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.The brushed knit helps to lock in the air.
Controlling the pilling guarantees the garment's insulating power over time. The fleece has the benefit of "ceramic" treatment in order to delay and reduce pilling.
Technical stretch fleece material:
The insulating power and breathability of fleece coupled with the freedom of movement offered by elastane. What's more, this elasticity ensures the garment retains its shape over time: this limits the movement of air between the body and the garment, preserving the insulating layer of trapped air. This material is therefore recommended for garments designed for intensive sports/outdoor activities.
