This fleece gilet has a slim fit, without being too tight fitting. We recommend you wear a technical undergarment underneath, in direct contact with the skin, to be better protected from the cold. It has also been designed to be worn just below our windproof/waterproof jackets like the women’s MH100.

OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ECO-DESIGN
Here at Decathlon, we know that our production and distribution activities have a big impact on the environment, so we have a responsibility to act. Nothing is perfect, but the use of recycled polyester to make the material of this fleece means we can avoid using new petroleum-based resources. Waste is transformed into resources that can be used again. We’re working in parallel on other levers to further reduce our impact.
HOW DOES THE MATERIAL INSULATE YOU FROM THE COLD?
The purpose of the fleece component is to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture (qualified as 'brushed' when it consists of loops); this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.
HOW IS WARMTH MEASURED?
2 types of tests are carried out to measure the warmth level of our fleeces:
- a fabric test
- a test on a thermal mannequin in a thermal chamber. Here, we reproduce the temperature, wind (5km/h) and humidity conditions you encounter in the mountains during a 5km/h walk
These tests allow us to validate our design choices, and everything is then validated by field testers.
This gilet has a comfort temperature between 7 and 10°C (without a jacket on top)
HOW IS DURABILITY TESTED?
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee:
- its resistance to abrasion from a backpack and arm movements to delay pilling
- the strength of the seams
- the durability of the fleece material after washing
- colour-fastness after washing, under UV light or in contact with perspiration.
