The textured fleece lining provides very good thermal insulation.
Breathable fabric on the sides and under the arms for good ventilation.
Thin, light fabric that keeps body heat in.
Water-repellent fabric on the back and torso.
2 back pockets for keeping objects separate. 1 side pocket for rubbish.
Windproof membrane, except under the arms
A product's ability to offer protection from the cold. It depends on the material's thermal resistance and how much air can pass through it. The higher its thermal resistance, the more the product retains the heat produced by the body while cycling.
To determine whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance (test based on standard ISO 11092).
The lower its resistance, the more the fabric will let water vapour produced by the body escape, and therefore the more breathable it is.
For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric
Water repellency should not be confused with waterproofing
Waterproofing is a fabric's capacity to prevent penetration of rain water.
A fabric's water repellency is its ability to make water bead and/or run along its surface. The garment soaks up little or no moisture, dries more quickly, and doesn't become heavier. Water repellency can also make it more difficult for its outer surface to become dirty.
Water repellency is obtained by applying a treatment to the fabric's external surface.

TESTS AND WARRANTY
Our team of product designers based at the B'Twin Village in Lille is continuously working to make cycling more comfortable for our users. Our obsession is to create products that meet the specific cycling needs of our users and eliminate hindrances to a good cycling experience.
We then test our products in the field, as we are convinced that only by subjecting them to real world conditions, like the ones you experience on your bike, we can continuously improve our products.
