Test
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our designers create and develop products that are appealing, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with products that are better than ever.

Product test
We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: - either a test of our fleeces' material. - or a test on a thermal dummy placed in a temperature chamber. We reproduce the temperature, wind (5 km/h) and humidity conditions that you would encounter in the mountains when walking at 5 km/h. These tests are used to validate our design choices. And we put the thermal insulation where you most need it.

Stockage tips
keep on a hanger or folded in a clean, dry place

Maintenance tips
Wash at 40°C. Do not use fabric softener, do not tumble dry, do not iron

Saw a review on these recycled fleeces in country walking magazine. Fantastic quality and an absolute bargain for £5.99
One word of warning though I normally take a Medium but looking at some other reviews I was advised to go up a size to large which I did and it fits perfectly. The medium would have been to small.
good product

Sizes fit slightly smaller therefore I'd suggest getting the next size up. Otherwise does what you'd expect of a fleece.
