POLARTEC® : THERMAL FABRICS
The primary insulation layer among experienced outdoor enthusiasts for nearly two decades, Polartec® fabrics are available in a variety of unique textures and weights designed specifically to enhance performance in a variety of environs.
Polartec® Neo Shell®
Waterproof technology has remained about the same since the very first hard shell. Breathability is achieved through diffusion: moisture and heat create enough pressure that moisture vapor finally passes through the fabric. Soft shells trade waterproofness for greater breathability by making use of convection: a constant exchange of air allows more moisture vapor to escape.
Now, Polartec® NeoShell® delivers the best of both worlds. Its exclusive membrane allows air to pull moisture vapor out – even at extremely low levels of pressure. So it helps keep you drier during high-exertion activities. Polartec® NeoShell® is the first-ever fabric to enable peak performance in any condition. It’s time to be liberated.
