Polartec® Power Fill™

Polartec® Power Fill™

Polartec® Power Fill™ is a soft and pliable matrix of polyester fibers engineered with a distinct geometric shape.

This matrix forms thousands of small air pockets that continuously capture and contain body heat, while maintaining a resilient, equalized thermal layer between the colder air on the outside and the warmer temperatures inside.

The polyester fiber's inherent hydrophobic properties also work to ensure that Polartec® Power Fill™ resists moisture absorption and dries quickly, while maintaining a high warmth to weight ratio.

Relaxed Fit

Relaxed Fit

Designed to be worn with multiple layers with optimal room for movement and comfort.
