Polartec® Products

Comfort: Next-to-Skin

Move freely and stay dry in every season and every activity.

To be included in the Comfort category for Polartec®, a fabric must actively pull moisture away from your body (wick), dry quickly, breathe and be comfortable on your skin. No matter what weather condition or activity you face—from skiing to rock climbing to trail running—it's critical that the fabric on your skin keeps you dry.

We include two fabric series in the next-to-skin category, Polartec® Power Dry® and Polartec® Power Stretch®. Polartec® Power Dry® fabrics are available in a huge range of weights and styles for everything from summer silkweights to lofted expedition weight. As the name suggests, Polartec® Power Stretch® fabrics offer a degree of stretch ranging from moderate for casual wear to supportive for training and adventure clothing (cycling shorts, tights, sports bras). This series also covers all seasons with many different weights and finishes.
