THE OUTDOOR WORLD NEEDED A GAME CHANGER
In 1981 we created a synthetic fabric technology that was more
lightweight, breathable, and faster drying than all its predecessors.
Polartec® Classic fleece established itself as the cornerstone for
insulating materials and forever changed the way the world dresses for
cold weather. This invigorated the entire outdoor industry and cemented
our roots as pioneers of innovation. Our fleece remains a premier
insulating fabric with versatile capabilities and an ever growing list
of applications. Where a fabric is born makes all the difference. Only
Polartec® Classic fleece comes direct from the source in Lawrence,
Polartec® Classic fabrics are the reference standard for lightweight warmth and breathability. This is the original fleece offering unparalleled quality and durability. Polartec® Classic fabrics have been the primary insulation layer of choice among experienced outdoor enthusiasts for nearly three decades.
These fabrics are available in a range of weights to provide the right level of insulation for most outdoor activities. Polartec® Classic 100 weight fabrics are the lightest and are excellent for a warm first layer or lightweight sweater, ideal for biking, trail running, and backpacking. Polartec® Classic 300 weight fabrics are the heaviest and provide a warm thermal layer for very cold outdoor activities, such as wintertime adventures. Halfway in between are Polartec® Classic 200 weight fabrics, providing outstanding warmth and versatility.
The Polartec® Classic line includes over 90 styles of fabrics available in hundreds of colors, weights and finishes. Many styles are also available with a water repellent surface that sheds rain and snow (and even coffee spilled on the way to work). The Polartec® Classic line not only provides outstanding warmth without weight, but is breathable and durable, dries quickly and is a great styling option for virtually every end use.
