Hardface® Windpro® Polartec®

Polartec® Wind Pro® fabrics are extremely breathable yet provide 4x more wind resistance than traditional fleece.  This is the new "super fleece" which spans an incredibly wide range of conditions; performs as both outerwear and insulation; and offers exceptional durability.  This is a versatile fabric which can be worn all year long for a variety of activities.

How does it work?
Proprietary yarns and a very tight construction greatly reduce the effects of wind chill, the Achilles heel of traditional fleece.  We have proven its effectiveness both in the lab and in the field.  Polartec® Wind Pro® blocks the wind 4x more than traditional fleece.

The durable water repellent outer surface sheds rain and snow. Velour or pebbled back efficiently traps air and provides a high warmth-to-weight ratio.  Both surfaces of these fabrics are finished for maximum durability and pill-free performance. They retain their insulating ability and original appearance after repeated use and laundering.

Because it is not a laminate, Polartec® Wind Pro® is also highly breathable, maintaining 85% of the breathability of traditional fleece to keep you from overheating.
