FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
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 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 of the fabric without soaking in. This prevents the component from swelling with 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 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 - 9: extremely breathable, between 10 and 13: very breathable, between 14 - 17: breathable, between 18 and 20: not very breathable, greater than 20: not breathable. Its RET is 8.7.
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 outside 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.
Score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme. Explanatory video: https://youtu.be/8t63KkRwn_8 sustainability.decathlon.com
