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.
100% eco-designed microfleece
Over a year, with the woman's Forclaz 50, this is:
10 million plastic bottles (0.26 gal) recycled
621 tons less waste for the planet
43% water saved*
58% energy saved*
54% less CO2 emissions for the planet*
This is where the added value of recycled polyester lies.
*Compared to old models made of non-recycled thread
2-year long-wear guarantee
We test the aging of our hiking fleece to ensure long wear. We guarantee:
- resistance to wear from backpacks and moving arms to delay the appearance of pilling, which is common with this material
- solidity of the seams
- resistance of the fleece material after 3 washes (size stability)
- color fading after washing, when exposed to UV or after contact with perspiration.
