Annecy-based snow brand, FW, believes that quality is sustainability. It’s the reason why they seek out the best brands to collaborate with, brands like Polartec. By incorporating sustainable fabrics into their designs – all Polartec fabrics are Oeko-Tex® and Bluesign® approved – FW can assure customers of high performance, unrivalled comfort and warmth.
Polartec® Alpha® Direct features in the Manifest Alpha Fleece Hoodie. Alpha technology is the perfect choice for active snowsports enthusiasts and because this top uses Alpha Direct – i.e., Alpha without a backing fabric – it’s super lightweight. Alpha is an active insulation which means it helps to regulate body temperature during activity. Alpha is able to do this because its fibres are woven around a core. This gives the fabric a stable structure enabling exceptional breathability and moisture management, keeping the wearer equally comfortable on a tough ascent or fast descent. The Hoodie also uses Polartec® Power Grid™, a patented technology designed to improve compressibility and wicking. This top is quite simply the perfect mid-layer for active use with a sleek aesthetic to match.
The Manifest Tour Pants are a backcountry layering dream. The shorts use Polartec® Alpha® technology – Alpha with a backing fabric - whilst the tights use Merino wool. Together they offer a performance piece that looks great too. Ideal for backcountry touring, cross training and high-octane activities.
If something warmer is the name of the game, FW’s got that covered too. The Root Light Sherpa Crew and the Root Light Sherpa Jogg both use Polartec® Thermal Pro® Sherpa light fabric. Made from 100% recycled content both pieces are lightweight, incredibly warm and breathable and look and feel luxurious to the touch. Great as a layering piece for wearing in the mountains for a whole host of activities including hiking and climbing.
