Can I be sure that my T-shirt is warm enough for my winter hikes?
The inside of your T-shirt is brushed – a tried and tested method for retaining warmth. The principle is simple: the component knit is structured to add volume to trap air, which is naturally insulating. It is exactly the same principle as animal fur or feathers.
Sizing and fit
Close-fitting cut. Select your usual size or one size larger if you prefer looser fitting clothing.
How to dress properly for snow hiking?
To dress properly in winter, whatever your activity, we recommend using the 3-layer principle:
layer 1: The high-tech base layer transfers moisture away from the body to keep your skin dry.
layer 2: The second layer (fleece, sweater) provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards.
layer 3: The jacket protects you from the outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind.
The whole outfit must be breathable in order to eliminate moisture.
Resistance to wear and abrasion test: for example, we check that the fleeces do not pill using tests conducted in laboratories. Colour retention test: the colour-fastness is verified to ensure that the colours cannot bleed. Ageing test: repeated washing should not affect the fabric's properties, behaviour, thickness or appearance.
