Recipient of the 2011 Outside Gear of the Year Award!
Constructed with Polartec® Power Shield® Pro with elastane for added stretch, this jacket provides virtually waterproof protection and yet is still extremely breathable for unrivaled use during periods of high exertion, abrasion-resistant in rugged terrain, and durable, water-resistance in adverse weather. Arms-up articulation lets you reach for next grip without jacket riding up, or mobility restricted.
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® Power Shield®
Polartec® Power Shield® fabrics feature a smooth, tightly woven face for abrasion resistance without the stiffness and noise of a traditional hard shell. A polyester velour back traps air and provides a high warmth-to-weight ratio.
All Polartec® Power Shield® fabrics are finished with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) to shed rain and snow. All versions feature spandex or mechanical stretch for freedom of movement.
Garments made from Polartec® Power Shield® fabrics are designed to replace traditional fleece and shell systems for most outdoor clothing applications, reducing the weight and number of layers needed to insulate and protect. They are ideal for skiing, snowboarding, climbing and backcountry trekking.
They are used in jackets, pants, bibs, hats and gloves. It's outerwear that gets worn, not carried in a pack.
