Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™

 

Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™ fabrics feature body-hugging 4-way stretch and are very breathable. They keep you dry when you sweat and provide warmth without weight. These fabrics feature a proprietary construction with two unique surfaces: a durable nylon outer layer is wind and abrasion resistant; the soft polyester inner layer pulls moisture away from your skin keeping you dry, warm and comfortable. The fabrics excel at handling the demands of the next-to-skin environment.

How Does It Work?

Moisture and high relative humidity next to the skin cause discomfort. Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™ keeps the skin dry through three complementary mechanisms:

 

      • The fabric is highly breathable and does not restrict the movement of moisture vapor.

    • “Touch Points” on the fabric inner surface draw off the sweat. Sweat is wicked off the skin to the outside of the fabric, where it spreads rapidly for evaporation.

    • When the sweat reaches the outside of the fabric, it spreads out to many times its original surface area, enabling it to dry at least 2 times faster than cotton.


Durability

The technical bi-component construction employs nylon on the exterior of the fabric for durability and polyester next to skin for moisture management. It was engineered for high-end performance for the most demanding end-user, concerned with managing the diverse micro-climate conditions of exterior durability and internal comfort.
