Great fit, excellent value

Descent wellmade fleece cheap price.

This was a fiver, don’t know if it’s cos of the colour as the grey ones were £16 and the blue ones £20. I have a grey one and it’s a descent fleece for the money. So the orange one at £5 is a bargain. On top of that I had £5 on my loyalty card so it didn’t actually cost me anything

Comfortable mid layer

Nice warm jumper. As with all Decathlon garments, I really like the fit, and I like the fact that there is slightly less insulation under the arms, which helps to maintain a good body temperature. This is quite a nice colour as well, not really bright red, but a kind of burnt orangey-red.

Forclaz 500 Men's Fleece

Ordered an XL after seeing others comments. The size guide says XL is 120/123 cm, i measured the chest on the XL delivered but it came in at approx 110cm, more like an M/L than an XL Needless to say i couldn't even get my arms in let alone do it up. Would recommend getting 2 sizes larger.

Bought another bargain from Decathlon

I was looking for a reasonably priced jacket for chilly nights when camping. This was found in the best sport/outdoor shop around

Sizing is out but - order larger size

I have to agree with Moorlandboy that the sizing is out. In my case I bought my usual Large size. I could hardly get my sleeves in the arms - with a jumper on it was impossible, with just a shirt on I had to hold my shirt cuffs to stop the sleeves rucking up - and my arms are pretty skinny! Apart from this the styling was nice and the quality looked fine for such a bargain price. I have returned the large and ordered in XXL - fingers crossed this will fit.


This is my second one. First one lasted two well worn years. I will be buying more!

A bit diasappointed

If you are going to buy this then get at least a size if not 2 sizes larger than you would normally buy. Bought a medium (my usual size) and it hardly fits even without any other layers. With other layers underneath I can't even get it on. Will have to return.

Excellent fleece, works great as a mid-layer.

I originally had a micro fleece. 200g verison but needed a warmer one for winter. This solved my problem for the most part. I could really do with the thicker one for the really cold days (-2 and below feel). This works in the temperature they advise and is of great quality.

Great Price

In the short time I have worn this product I have been pleased by the quality feel of the fleece. Will it pil? Time will tell. I purchased an XL(UK) the body fit is excellent with a good length sleeve, which have a wrist gusset, nice touch. The price is very competitive, compared to similar products I looked at. Being 6 foot tall I feel it could be a bit longer in length, but overall I am very pleased with the Forclaz 500.

Not Bad

such a nonsense design flaw - pockets are not safe, too shallow, you need to zip up the side pockets all the time to safeguard your belongings, for this price not a good buy expected from Decathlon otherwise not a very bad jacket.

Very comfortable

Ideal for low mountain summer hikes. Typical May/Aug in the hills

Fleece component: insulate with air

The fleece component keeps the air inside thanks to the volume created by its texture; this air keeps the body warm with its natural insulating properties. It is the abrasive nature of the knit that helps keep the air in.


Pilling is controlled, so the garment's insulating properties are guaranteed over time. This fleece has the benefit of "ceramic" treatment in order to delay and reduce piling.

A score to compare the products' environmental impact

The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifecycle and with different indicators. An overall rating of ABCDE is provided to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other (T-shirts, pants and backpacks). Decathlon is a voluntary actor in this environmental labeling process. For further information:



Product testing

We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: - either a test of the fleece material. - or on a thermal dummy in a temperature chamber. We reproduce the same conditions of temperature, wind (3 mph) and humidity found in the mountains on a 3 mph walk. These tests are used to validate our design choices. And we adapt our thermal insulation where you most need it.
