Performance Fleece

  • Technology: POLARTEC

POLARTEC® PERFORMANCE FLEECE

Polartec® is the trusted leading manufacturer of performance insulation. For this Midlayer Jacket and Pullover - MDW, the Arrowhead Equipment team chose multiple Polartec® fabrics and applied each to its specific area of advantage.

For the main body of the garment, Polartec® Wind Pro® with Hardface® delivers exceptional wind and abrasion resistance. Comprised of an advanced knit construction it provides four times the wind resistance of traditional technical fleece, while maintaining a high degree of breathability. 

The added proprietary Hardface® treatment increases abrasion resistance, durability, and weather resistance while maximizing its performance as a versatile combat layering system. Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro, noted for its dynamic stretch and comfort, is strategically mapped under the arms, down the sides, and in the hood.

SITKA DNA

Borrowing from one of SITKA Gear’s most functional and widely used midlayer fleece pieces, the Fanatic Hoody, the team pulled key design elements and modified the features with a focus on SOF end-user requirements.   
 
The result is a technical apparel solution with enhanced comfort and dynamic stretch for a better fit during prolonged operations.
