HIGH LOFT™

Polartec® High Loft™ takes fleece comfort and thermal warmth to greater heights. By creating a patented high loft fiber structure, this material is ultra soft and highly compressible. Extended polyester yarns create large air pockets to retain more thermal warmth, while keeping this insulation lightweight. High Loft™ has the greatest warmth to weight ratio of all Polartec® fleece fabric technologies.

POWER AIR™

Polartec® Power Air™ is a new revolutionary knit construction that encapsulates air to retain warmth and reduce microfiber shedding. The result is a performance fabric with advanced thermal efficiency that sheds up to 5x less than other premium mid-layer fabrics. And while all fabrics will shed fibers over time, Polartec® Power Air™ is a step forward in reducing the environmental impact of what we make and wear.

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.

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.

FLEECE SERIES

In 1981, Polartec® forever changed the way the world dresses for cold weather with the invention of polar synthetic fleece. Polartec® was the first to knit, nap, and shear synthetic yarns into thermal fabric for outdoor apparel. Polyester fibers were engineered for more versatile durability. With greater resiliency, lightweight warmth and fast dry times, Polartec® fleece remains the industry standard for outerwear performance. Polartec® fleece comes in Micro, 100, 200 and 300 weights.
