Nice look but pilling

Beautiful fleece, pleasant to wear, good size, beautiful color BUT pilling at the friction level of the backpack (used barely ten times) and next to the pockets. By comparison, I use another sleeveless fleece much more often (at least for 5 years and many times; the MH 120) and no wear. While on SH the SH 500 we notice wear. It's a shame, especially if you don't use it very often.

First of all, it looks very stylish. I bought it for my son and myself. Waterproof materials are used in many parts. I walked for 2 hours in 6°-7° temperatures wearing a t-shirt underneath. I was never cold. The price was too high for the fleece, but I can say that I did not regret it after wearing it.

Attractive design with compromises on comfort

Ordered in “XXL”. Fits well with a shirt underneath and fits quite close to the body at 1.83m, 112kg and a chest circumference of 122cm. The trouser pockets are covered along the length. In general, I am happy with the fleece jacket as it fits straight away and looks good. In detail there are a few points that are critical. - Foiled elements do not stretch. Clearly noticeable in the shoulder area when worn. - Foiled elements are anything but quiet. Friction is loud. - When the collar is closed, pressure is exerted on the larynx when the hood is in the collar. There is a lack of stretch, a different cut or more freedom here. There are also some positive things that I think are good. + The arm cuffs are very successful and comfortable + The arm holes are very breathable thanks to the stretchy mesh + The zippers can also be gripped with gloves. + The stiff collar gives a pleasantly secure feeling on the neck. Waffle fleece is comfortable. In general, however, I question the usefulness and choice of materials for the foiled elements. Apart from the visual benefit, the rain protection is marginal and the waterproofness is questionable. Then it's better to use a softshell fabric with 4-way stretch. Water-repellent and comfortable. For everything else there is a hardshell that you cover. When it comes to warmth, the vest performs well on average. Wind in particular causes problems because it can be clearly felt. Unfortunately, this has also been noticed with other fleece tops in Decathlon. As a second layer, however, the noise development and the lack of freedom in the larynx are disturbing. Ultimately, I like the vest, but I'm also limited with it. If I then consider the actual price of around €50, buying it would no longer be an option. For the discounted price of just under €30, the fleece jacket is definitely recommended. In addition, there is also very qualitative competition in the price range between €30-50. For me, wearing it only makes perfect sense for appropriate weather conditions. On hikes, I would probably lean toward other fleece products that work better as a second layer. However, this model is highly recommended as the only protective or thermal layer.

Can i be sure that my fleece is warm enough for my winter hikes?

The inside of your fleece is brushed – a tried and tested method for retaining heat. The principle is simple: the component knit is structured to add volume to trap air, which is naturally insulating. It is exactly the same principle as animal fur or feathers. A small extra, this jacket has cuffs at the wrists to stop cold air from entering.

What is the fleece component and why is it so warm?

Fleece fabric with synthetic fibres to reproduce the performance of wool: warmth, thermal insulation yet still lightweight. It is soft, comfortable, dries quickly and lets the skin to breathe.

Is a soft and pleasant component fragile?

To ensure the durability of our products, we perform tests on components. For example, we check that the fleeces do not pill, that colours do not run and that repeated washing does not affect the properties of the fabric. The abrasion resistance of a fabric is measured by a test called the Martindale test. This machine rubs a sample of the fabric on a reference surface with a weight at the end.

Good ventilation for optimal thermal comfort

Thermal comfort is a balance between the warmth of the garment and its ability to let the body breathe. If moisture accumulates, you will feel the cold during the less active phases (rest, descent).We have designed this fleece with intense use in mind by adding a back opening and stretch side inserts that reach under the arms. Good balance between heat/ventilation for optimal thermal comfort.

How does my fleece protect me from outdoor conditions?

In winter, it is important to be protected from both moisture (snow, rain) and wind, because the latter can significantly cool the body, regardless of whether you are physically active or standing still. We have equipped your fleece jacket with waterproof inserts on the shoulders, bottom of the sleeves and hood. You can therefore wear your jacket in damp weather or under light snow showers.

A comfortable, practical snow hiking fleece

With its very fitted cut an stretch inserts on the side, your fleece encourages freedom of movement, essential when walking in the snow. The zipped pockets keep everything that needs to be at hand safe (tissues, lip salve, gloves, keys...). The waterproof hood and shoulders mean your fleece jacket is a versatile garment, half-way between a second and third layer. The essential item in your snow hiking outfit.

The ideal outfit for your snowshoe outings!

We designed this fleece as part of the ideal outfit for hiking off the beaten path: the SH500 outfit. With your SH500 fleece, SH520 trousers, SH520 boots and SH500 snowshoes, you can enjoy hiking on snow in all weathers. Travel light and with the right gear!

How to dress properly for snow hiking?

To dress properly in winter, whatever your activity, we recommend using the 3-layer principle:layer 1: The high-tech base layer transfers moisture away from the body to keep your skin dry.layer 2: The second layer (fleece, sweater) provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards.layer 3: The jacket protects you from the outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind. The whole outfit must be breathable in order to eliminate moisture.

Product testing

We carry out 2 types of thermal testing:- a test of the material of our fleeces. - a test on a thermal dummy in a thermal chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions that you would encounter in the mountains walking at 5 km/h. These tests validate our design choices and we then adapt the thermal insulation where you need it most.

Storage instructions

Store in a dry, dark place.We recommend you avoid using chemicals such as bleach, which could cause deterioration in the garment’s thermal insulation.
