Polartec
Powerdry

Polartec® Power Dry® was created to give base fabrics greater efficiency, more dependable wicking properties, faster dry times and better overall performance. Not all base fabrics are created equal, and many can only provide temporary wicking chemistry that fades and weakens with every wash. By designing mechanical wicking fabric with our patented bi-component construction we invented a superior base material that pulls moisture from the skin, expands for faster evaporation and lasts the life of the fabric.

Technology

The technology used to control moisture is the highest priority for base layers and next-to-skin surfaces. Sweat and moisture vapor must be in a constant state of flux to ensure the fabric doesn't become saturated and lose performance characteristics.

This is why Polartec® Power Dry® is engineered with our patented bi-component knit construction to enhance drying capabilities across the entire fabric structure. This dual surface approach maximizes performance by mechanically wicking sweat and vapor off your skin and directly transferring it to the outer surface where it diffuses for quick dry times.
