Fleece material: Insulates using the air
The fleece component is designed to trap the air thanks to the volume created by its texture; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. It is the brushing of the knit fabric that traps the air.
Keeping control of the piling is what guarantees the garment's thermal insulation over time. This fleece has the benefit of "ceramic" treatment in order to delay and reduce piling.
Technical stretch fleece material
The insulating power and breathability of fleece coupled with the freedom of movement offered by spandex. What's more, this elasticity ensures the garment retains its cut over time: this limits the movement of air between the body and the garment, preserving the insulating layer of trapped air. This material is therefore recommended for garments designed for intensive sports/outdoor activities.
We carry out 2 types of thermal tests:\n- either a test of our fleeces' material.\n- or on a thermal mannequin in a temperature chamber. We recreate the temperature, wind (3 mph) and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains when walking at 3 mph.\nThese tests are used to validate our design choices. And we adapt our thermal insulation where you most need it.
