Polartec® is a household name in the world of technical materials. When this manufacturer was the first in the world to create a warming synthetic fleece material in 1981, it revolutionized the world of technical materials. Today, this original material has undergone decades more of development and is considered the highest standard in the fleece materials world.
The Polartec® Power Stretch™ material itself was developed with the intention of creating a material with excellent stretch properties and the ability to instantly return to its original shape, allowing the garment to hold its permanent shape even after several years of wear. In addition, these stretch properties, which the material has in all four directions, offer the wearer the maximum possible freedom of movement and the fleece jacket adapts perfectly to the figure.
Further benefits of Polartec® Power Stretch®
In addition to its stretch properties, Polartec® Power Stretch™ offers a number of other benefits typical of fleece materials - high levels of breathability, the ability to wick away moisture efficiently and thermo-regulating properties.
Its unique properties are due to the principle of fusing fabric structures so that different materials can be used on both the top and bottom sides. The inner material is therefore woven in such a way that it is able to wick moisture to the surface of the outer material, which has quick-drying properties and evaporates moisture very efficiently. The inner material is brushed on the inside, which further enhances its warming ability and is very comfortable in contact with the skin.
As fleece jackets in general are very often used as a mid-layer under a waterproof jacket, the outer material is very soft and smooth to make putting extra layers over this jacket as easy as possible. This smooth outer surface is also very pleasant to the touch.
