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.
Polartec® Power Stretch Pro™ is itself a fleece material that is the absolute top in its category, and as a result is often used by professional mountaineers and mountain rescuers. This material is even used by the US Army for their gear.
It has excellent stretch properties and is very quickly able to return to its original shape. Thanks to these characteristics and the high durability of the nylon fibres, Polartec® Power Stretch Pro™ jackets can hold their original shape even after years of wear and last for decades with good care.
What makes Polartec® Power Stretch Pro™ special?
Polartec® Power Stretch Pro™ has the ability to never lose its shape thanks to its unique weaving technology - its structure is formed by combining two materials. The inner material is very comfortable to wear and effectively pushes moisture towards the surface of the outer material, but also retains an ideal amount of body heat, so it can keep its wearer warm even in cold conditions. The moisture that is pushed to the surface of the outer material is then evaporated away very efficiently thanks to the quick-drying properties of the outer layer.
As fleece jackets are often used as a mid-layer and thus combined with other materials, the outer surface is smooth and causes no chafing when combined with another layer, most often a waterproof jacket.
Thanks to its stretch properties, the Polartec® Power Stretch Pro™ material adapts perfectly to the wearer's body, offering absolute freedom of movement without any restriction.
How does Polartec® Power Stretch Pro™ differ from Polartec® Power Stretch®?
The two materials are largely identical, developed primarily to offer superior stretch properties and durability. However, Polartec® Power Stretch Pro™ also contains extremely durable nylon fibres, making jackets made from this material even more durable and able to withstand even the toughest challenges.
