What is Polartec®?

Tough stuff, for great days out.

Stretched and snagged, burned and torn. To perfection. Polartec® puts every batch of its fabrics through the wringer to make sure they’re up to scratch for demanding surroundings. Like up a mountain – or January in Sunderland.

Polartec® Alpha®

Insulation that actively regulates warm and cool air – no more taking layers on and off during stop-start journeys or in fast-changing temperatures.

Polartec® Thermal Pro®

The squeeze of a soft fleece – with extra air pockets to trap warm air. And it’s extra-breathable, for all-round comfort.

Polartec® Power Stretch®

Shapes itself to the way you move while pulling moisture away from your body. So you can stay limber over crags and clefts.

Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™

An even stretchier option, that’ll keep up with you on the steepest ascents.

Polartec® Power Grid™

Warm and breathable, while using surprisingly little fabric. Savvy. And extremely light.
