The fleece component is designed to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. The brushed knit fabric is what traps the air.

2-year long-wear guarantee
We test the ageing of our hiking fleeces to ensure long wear. We guarantee:
- resistance to wear from backpacks and moving arms, to delay the appearance of pilling which is common with this material
- the solidity of the seams
- the resistance of the fleece material after 3 washes (size stability)
- colour fading after washing, when exposed to UV or after contact with perspiration.
