cool

A product for demanding people! They are quite warm, I used them at temperatures of at least -10. they wick away moisture very well and, most importantly, they do not absorb unpleasant odors during heavy training etc. I recommend!

Quality

Decathlon never disappoints me

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

Hello, these tights are very poor in construction quality and ripped at the seams behind the knee while I simply and gently pulled them on before third use. Even worse is the fact that Decathlon has refused to repair or replace the item despite me sending in a photo of the pinky size split at the seam and the tights showing zero signs of any type of wear. Not to mention that I own 5 different types of base layer sets sold by Decathlon that I have not had an issue with. You get what you pay for in regard to these tights and I recommend paying a bit more for a high quality layer sold through a company that will back the products they sell. In addition, it took near two weeks and several emails for Decathlon to finally get back to me stating that the tear wasn’t under warranty, and even worse, stating that the result of the tear must have resulted by my use. Pathetic customer service.

Product testing

In November 2018, 8 trekkers (4 men and 4 women) and part of the Forclaz design team, tested these tights for 4 days in the southern French Alps (Lus La Croix Haute). You can expect wind, rain, a bit of snow, a bivouac... and a lot of fun! We were then able to make the final modifications and validate it for mountain trekking use.
