    Nice but beware of the fit

    I have purchased a number of these fleeces over the years and find that ive graduated towards the less basic ones as they just look a bit better. They dont have silly addons/extra pockets and just do a good job at keeping you warm.

    Sizing can vary a bit, i have a mix of mediums and smalls and most of them are a snug fit - try before buy but other than that its a "id buy another"

    Perfect layering fleece

    Plain and simple, nothing to get in the way and rub, creates a good layer of warm air and allows perspiration to wick away from the body. A very fair price too for what is the equivalent of a sweater.

    Amazingly good value

    I have been using these for mountain biking for 5 or so years,
    they work well with underlayers, only negative point is they no longer have a chest pocket

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 better products 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.
