What does water repellent mean?
Your 100 fleece is made water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment lets water run off the surface of the fabric without being absorbed. This prevents the component from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight. This treatment must be renewed several times throughout the product's lifetime. Water repellent treatment products are available in our stores.
What is breathability and the RET index?
The breathability of your 100 fleece corresponds to its ability to let perspiration generated by the body escape. It is measured by its Resistance to Evaporative Transfer (ISO 11092 standard). The RET is a resistance index; the lower the value, the greater the breathability of the fabric. RET between 6 and 9: extremely breathable, between 10 and 13: very breathable, between 14 and 17: breathable, between 18 and 20: not very breathable, over 20: not breathable. RET of your 100 fleece = 8.7
What is the Clo index?
The clo is the scale that measures the thermal resistance of your 100 fleece. During the test, your technical clothing's component is exposed to a temperature close to body temperature and a controlled outside temperature. The clo index reflects the ability of your 100 fleece to retain your body heat inside the garment. The greater the clo index, the better the technical component will retain your body heat.
