FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
What is the Clo index?
The clo is the scale that measures the thermal resistance of your Reverse 500 fleece. During the test, your technical garment's component is exposed to a temperature close to body temperature and a controlled exterior temperature. The clo index reflects the ability of your Reverse 500 fleece to retain your body heat inside the garment. The greater the clo index, the better the technical component will retain your body heat.
What are the main benefits of "double-sided" fleece?
A garment combining two layers of fleece to provide more heat and comfort while reducing the windchill effect thanks to the film used to bond the two fleece layers together. This enables us to construct a fully reversible garment.
What is breathability and the RET index?
The breathability of your Reverse 500 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: little breathability, above 20: not breathable. Its RET is 8.7.
What are the component's water repellent properties?
Your Reverse 500 fleece is made water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment causes water to slide over the surface without soaking in. 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.
