Warmth: Fleece & Thermal

Lightweight and warm fabrics for every outdoor endeavor.

Anyone who spends time in the outdoors knows that comfort and sometimes even survival can depend on staying warm. As the inventors of fleece, Polartec® revolutionized the market for thermal insulation gear and accessories, such as blankets, hats, and vests. While our original Polartec® Classic fleece products are still widely used for everything from Himalayan expeditions to everyday casual wear, over the years we have developed dozens of insulation fabrics with a variety of weights, finishes, and looks.

All insulation fabrics perform by trapping warm air pockets and holding them next to your body. The more loft a fabric possesses, the more air it will trap. The key to creating warm fabrics that are light yet durable is the finishing process, and in this category, Polartec® has the most sophisticated manufacturing facilities. Fabrics that pill not only look worse for wear; they also deteriorate the performance and insulation capacity.

Polartec® Classic and Polartec® Thermal Pro® stand for warmth without weight, durability, and lasting value for performance and aesthetics. Polartec® Classic fabrics are the modern evolution of the original fleece we invented 30 years ago. Polartec® Thermal Pro® fabrics provide a wide range of styles for visual differentiation and technical performance.
