2 year durability
We test the aging of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee:
- resistance to wear from backpacks and moving arms to delay the appearance of piling which is specific to this material- the solidity of seams- the resistance of the fleece material after 3 washes (size stability)
- color fading after washing, when exposed to UV or after contact with perspiration.
We carry out 2 types of thermal testing:\n- either a test of the material of our fleeces.\n- or testing on a thermal manikin in a thermal chamber. We reproduce the conditions of temperature, wind (3 mph) and humidity that you would encounter in the mountains walking at 3 mph in our testing chambers.\nThese tests allow us to validate our design choices. So we can adapt our thermal insulation where you most need it.
