Brushed on both sides its density of 200g/sqm makes this fleece very comfortable
Polyester knit: allows the vapour produced by the body to escape (RET=6.3)
Durable component specially chosen for young adventurers! 2-year warranty
Weighs 113g in size 3-4 years
compressible to be carried at the bottom of a bag
Machine wash at 30°C. Quick drying. No ironing needed (crease-free).
WHY CHOOSE RECYCLED POLYESTER?
By recycling plastic bottles or second-hand textiles to produce our polyester, we have reduced the utilisation of oil-based resources while preserving the quality and performance of the material during your mountain hikes.
FLEECE COMPONENT: INSULATION THANKS TO AIR
The mission of the fleece component is to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture (and the brushing of the knit).
This air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.
Durability of the components
We conduct numerous laboratory tests to validate the highest standards in terms of durability: a resistance test to abrasion and friction to ensure that the fleece does not pill, a colour fastness test to check the behaviour and resistance of the colours and an ageing test to check that repeated washing does not alter the properties of the fabric, its behaviour, its thickness or its appearance.
To assess the breathability of the fabric, the evaporative resistance, RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard), is measured. The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity is evaporated, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = little or no breathability.
Product design: our expertise
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for designing our mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise
WHERE DO OUR FLEECES COME FROM?
Created in our international design centre at the foot of the Mont Blanc in France, this tent is then manufactured and assembled by our suppliers in China, Vietnam and Bangladesh.
These are partners that have genuine expertise in making our fleeces and with whom we are in close collaboration.
Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.
Working conditions in our production workshops
We guarantee that our suppliers comply with our code of conduct. These suppliers are often located in developing countries where our presence helps to create jobs.
By conducting audits and having teams on site, we make sure that the working environment of the employees meets certain quality standards in terms of human respect, personal fulfilment and environmental protection.

TESTS AND WARRANTY
"Our Decathlon Sportslab laboratory, based in Lille, also contributes to the innovation and development of our Quechua products.
It brings together 4 themes, each with their own area and technological tools:
Morphology (particularly thanks to 3D analysis)
Thermal comfort (with its four environmental chambers)
Behavioural and sensory sciences"
To meet your kids’ requirements, Quechua products are tested in the mountains in conditions that you will come across during your hikes.
Sarah, our Field Test Engineer, as well as a panel of child testers, test the products throughout their development until they’re offered for sale.
