Softshell and men's polar

You will soon be hiking for several days and you hesitate between a polar and a softshell? Or are you more of a day hiker? In fact, depending on your practice, the purchase of a garment may not necessarily be the same. Hiking experts give you their tips.
In which situations is it advisable to wear a fleece?
The fleeces we offer are light, warm and comfortable. And yes, it's over with the heavy, itchy polar fleeces. Polar fleeces provide heat at low or even extreme temperatures and wick away moisture very quickly during exercise. It must be worn close to the body to prevent your heat from escaping and the cold from coming in to tickle your hair. They will therefore prevent any sensation of cold. In addition, they offer great freedom of movement and ensure perfect durability. It is a fabric that makes it possible to offer both economically interesting textiles and high-performance clothing.
Polar fleece clothing is very versatile and therefore suitable for many different winter activities. Indeed, they are perfectly suitable for skiers, hikers, everyday life but also for work clothes. Often, those who work outside often use fleece clothing.
Polar fleeces are therefore an almost essential choice in winter. This is why we offer you a wide range of fleeces, with a masculine and sporty design, which beyond their technical nature, will bring you a relaxed style. The Salomon Discovery FZ fleece is an elegant and ideal garment for all seasons. It can be worn under a ski jacket and over a technical top. It is a versatile model that is suitable for a wide range of activities. In addition, the fleeces are very easy to clean, and offer fast drying and do not require ironing!

However, beware of fabric softeners and softeners that deteriorate the technical properties of polar fleece and in particular their insulating properties. Remember to respect the washing conditions to keep your garment long-lasting.
In addition, unlike softshell, polar clothing is often neither windproof nor water-repellent.

But then, how do you choose between a softshell and a polar?

Unlike polar fleeces, softshells have water-repellent and windproof characteristics. But like polar fleeces, softshells have the advantage of being very hot, so you will never be cold. The quality of the fabric makes it a second durable layer that will stand the test of time.
The softshell, in general, must be worn under a waterproof membrane, but it can also be worn alone in cold and dry weather. 
So, softshell clothing serves both as a second layer and a little bit of a third layer. They are generally:
Windproof.
Water repellents (water runs off the outer fabric) - which is partly the role of the third layer.
Non-impermeable (water can therefore pass through the fabric).
Insulators (more or less depending on the model) - which is the role of the second layer.
Small bad weather conditions
A softshell is therefore very useful when it is cold and windy. Without softshell, in these conditions, you would have to put a rain jacket over your fleece to cut yourself off from the wind and you would lose a lot of breathability - which can be embarrassing during an effort.

The big advantage of the softshell is that it can withstand small weather conditions. Thanks to their windproof and water-repellent properties, they prevent you from constantly leaving and storing your rain jacket in the bag. PAYUN hoodie millet seems to be an interesting choice due to its high alpine efficiency and hushed discretion. This jacket features a hybrid design that reinvents the softshell style for winter trekking. It is 100% windproof and water-repellent.
Cold weather without wind
When it is cold and there is no wind, a fleece is more practical and comfortable during an effort. Indeed, they are more breathable than a softshell. In addition, a fleece usually dries faster.
Severe weather conditions
When it rains or snows too much, however, you reach the limits of the softshell and it is better to wear a rain jacket to stay dry. The idea is to combine a rain jacket with a fleece to make an effort because the more breathable this combination will be. It is quite possible to put a rain jacket over a softshell, but the breathability will be worse and you will risk sweating more, and then getting cold.
