Fantastic value!

After doing extensive research on fleece options for an upcoming thru-hike, I settled on the MH500 and am so glad that I did. It is breathable yet keeps me warm on cool mornings. The fit is comfortable and flattering (I am usually a size small & ordered a size medium). My only recommendation for improvement would be to make the entire jacket micro-grid fleece instead of just the torso. However this is an incredible value for the price and I look forward to continue wearing it often!

Boyish fit

I like the red color & warmth provided by this shirt. I don't like the boyish, boxy fit. Best for someone with no curves. The bigger size was too baggy in the back & loose at the waist.

Not great

Feels like a cheap material - get really hot with it. Like a cheap polyester.

Hello Zina,

Zina, I have passed on your feedback to the store manager. We are sorry to hear about this and we will take an action on this ASAP.

Thank you for understanding, we hope you give Decathlon another chance.





Nice and good price

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

I cannot believe this was only $12. This is an excellent product for a STEAL of a price. I'm 5'4", 135lbs with athletic build and this fits perfect! I wore it under a vest for equestrian sports and had no issues. My only suggestion would be to add thumbholes in the sleeves, but still a great product.

Looks Great and keeps you warm

Very flattering and keeps you warm. I climbed a Munro in March with a base layer and this on and kept me warm. Great quality and price.

Perfect base layer

Only thing missing from this top is pockets! Otherwise excellent - great fit, soft and washes well.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic


  • 91% Polyester cationic
  • 9% Spandex


Jehanne, our fashion designer, and Paloma, our model maker, have carefully designed the lines of this fleece for a sporty, feminine style. Paloma tells us: "I wanted to enhance the feminine curves with a relatively slim and comfortable fit, and lines that emphasize the waist." To be protected from the cold, it has a longline cut particularly at the lower back. Your hand can also be protected from the cold by a covering thumb loop. Choose your usual size.

Our responsibility for eco-design

At Decathlon, we know that our production and distribution activities have a big impact on the environment. That's why we must take action. Not everything is perfect, but by using recycled polyester to make the microgrid material of this fleece, no new oil-based resources are used. The waste is recycled into resources that can be used again. At the same time, we are working on other measures to reduce our footprint even further

Warmth in the right place

We have chosen to combine 2 technical materials: - a recycled "microgrid" material at the chest, back, collar and thumb-hole that provides effective protection from the cold like a conventional fleece, but with a much higher breathability thanks to its high-tech knit fabric; - a smooth material that contains spandex, for total freedom of movement with your poles, while ensuring optimal breathability of the arms

How is the warmth measured?

2 types of tests are conducted to measure the warmth of our fleeces: - a fabric test - a test on a thermal mannequin in a thermal chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (3 mph) and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains when walking at 3 mph These tests are used to validate our design choices, and the whole garment is validated by testers in the field. This fleece has a temperature rating from 50 to 55°F (without a jacket on top)

How is breathability measured?

The breathability of a material is its capacity to wick away the water vapor generated by perspiration. During intense effort, it is, therefore, essential to wear very breathable clothing so you do not stay wet. Breathability is measured by the RET, the resistance of a fabric to the evacuation of moisture. The lower this coefficient, the more breathable the fabric is: RET ≤ 3: extremely breathable fabric RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric etc.

How do you test the durability?

We test the aging of our hiking fleeces to guarantee their durability. We guarantee: - the backpack's resistance to abrasion and arm movements, in order to delay pilling - the strength of the seams - the durability of the fleece material after washing - colorfastness to washing, UV light or contact with perspiration.
