NEOSHELL®

For years the outerwear industry has prioritized excessively high waterproof ratings that sacrifice the breathable performance needed during physical activity. Neoshell® provides the strength and durability of a weather protective fabric, while still allowing dynamic air exchange and comfortable full range of motion.

ALPHA®

Polartec® Alpha® was invented for the U.S. special forces. They required a superior insulation system for extreme temperature variations and the start-stop conditions of combat. Alpha® active insulation is engineered for consistent warmth, while allowing greater breathability during activity. This air exchange technology creates sustained comfort without shedding layers, which isn’t an option during a mission.

DELTA™

Polartec® Delta™ was created so cooling fabric technologies could better utilize the body's natural cooling process — sweat. Next-to-skin fabrics that target wicking and fast drying will keep moisture moving, but don't work towards actually cooling the body down. Delta™ works more efficiently by elevating touch-points for increased airflow, faster moisture dispersal, and reduced wet-cling.

POWER WOOL™

Polartec® Power Wool™ is a revolutionary, bi-component knit fabric that combines the best of both natural and synthetic fibers, all without blending. The industry standard of blending wool and synthetic yarns together often hinders the greater performance qualities of each material. Power Wool™'s advanced knit construction places each distinct fiber where it can work to its highest potential. This hybrid design is made with a soft, odor reducing, merino wool base and a highly durable synthetic exterior.
