A couple of years ago, Polartec moved beyond fleece, base layer, and shell technology to enter the insulation market with Alpha. Now, the company gets set to release a new synthetic insulation — Power Fill — that increases the range of their offering.
Much like Alpha, Power Fill is designed for use in highly active pursuits but in even colder conditions. It’s a soft and pliable matrix of spun polyester yarns engineered with a hollow fiber construction that is softer and more durable. This construction forms thousands of 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 on the inside.
A controlled melt process bonds the hollow fibers, increasing durability and drapability, eliminating the need for reinforcements or other stabilizers. The polyester fibers are naturally hydrophobic, so wick away moisture and dry quickly.
Made with cruelty-free, 80% post-consumer recycled content, Power Fill insulation technology provides greater warmth retention in colder conditions, without added weight or bulk.
Power Fill is available in 60, 80, 100, and 135 g/m2 weights, and will appear first in Triple Aught Design gear for Fall 2017.
