N Nano-Tex® All Conditions Fleece - Nano-Tex transforms the fleece fibers at a


molecular level to create this water-repellant and static-free fabric. Hydrophobic nanoscale
“whiskers” elevate water molecules above the fabric’s surface, which helps prevent liquid
from penetrating the fabric. To eliminate static, positive and negative ions dissipate static
charge as soon as it occurs, preventing static cling, and unpleasant static shock.

Nano-Tex® Dry Inside - A revolutionary new fabric known as “performance cotton”.


Dry Inside combines the moisture management capabilities of the best synthetic active-wear
garments with the comfort of 100% cotton. By modifying cotton at the molecular level, Nano-
Tex has created a fabric that funnels moisture away from the skin and towards the outer
surface where it then evaporates. The result is a fabric that wicks moisture away from skin,
won’t feel heavy and damp and retains its natural softness.
Nano-Tex® Neutralizer - Using a special molecular structure, Nano-Tex Neutralizer
fabric intercepts odor molecules caused from perspiration. It clutches these molecules to
prevent offending scents from being released into the air, and creates a filter that captures
body odor traveling through the fabric. Upon washing, the odor molecules are eliminated
from the fabric altogether. Unlike anti-microbial treatments or silver-based treatments,
Neutralizer doesn’t use harsh chemicals to kill bacteria. Instead, it neutralizes the odor
molecules themselves, making for a more environmentally friendly fabric.

tested by the independent testing lab SGS using a 1,000 gram Taber wheel and resulted in
an increase from 1,200 cycles for a two-times polyurethane coating to 5,600 cycles for
NüHyde. The specially formulated heavy duty performance coating is ideal for luggage,
backpacks, and wear areas of garments.

Nüwash® - This proprietary hybrid fiber, developed by Nüwa Textiles, has a unique finish,
which offers both durability and endless design options. The fabric is featured in
stonewashed denim effects, heathers, straw mat looks, or tatamis through the careful
intermixing of 95% nylon and 5% synthetic blended fibers that react differently to the
dyestuffs. The resulting Nüwash® fabric features three to four colors within the yarn,
resulting in a depth and richness not previously achieved in ballistic performance nylon.
Developed in heavier weights, the fabric is available in a full range of 400, 840, and 1680
denier ballistic weaves. Nüwash® fabric is suitable for a variety of end-use applications

Polartec® Power Shield" - Polartec® Power Shield" fabrics represent the next
generation of technical outerwear - body armor against the elements. This clothing concept
goes beyond traditional 2 -layer systems, which feature fleece insulation and a
waterproof/breathable shell, to a single layer that protects against abrasion and cold,wet
weather. They feature a smooth, tightly woven nylon face for abrasion resistance equal or
superior to the best shells, but without the stiffness and noise. They also have a polyester
velour back that traps air and provides a high warmth-to-weight ratio. Garments made from
Polartec® Power Shield" fabrics are designed to replace traditional fleece and PTFE shell
systems for most outdoor clothing applications, reducing the weight and number of layers
needed to insulate and protect. They are ideal for skiing, snowboarding, winter climbing and
back-country trekking.They are used in jackets, pants, bibs, hats,and gloves.

Polartec® Power Stretch® - Polartec® Power Stretch® fabrics feature body-hugging


4-way stretch and are very breathable. These are the most versatile outdoor apparel fabrics

nylon outer layer is wind- and abrasion-resistant; the soft polyester velour inner layer is
warm and comfortable.

Polartec® Thermal Pro® - Polartec® Thermal Pro® fabrics are the most durable of
the Polartec® thermal fabrics. Thermal Pro¨ fabrics offer great styling options for virtually
every end use. The 100% polyester proprietary fibers and low-pile-velour, pebbled, or
shearling surface create a fabric that is at least 30 times more durable than bargain fleece.
These fabrics offer excellent breathability and dry quickly, and the velour or pebbled back
traps air and provides outstanding warmth without weight. Many styles are also available
with a water-repellent finish that sheds rain and snow. Unlike conventional fleece fabrics,
Polartec® Thermal Pro® fabrics maintain their insulating ability and non-pilling appearance
after repeated laundering and represent the state of the art in fleece fabrics.
Polartec® Wind Pro® - Polartec® Wind Pro® fabrics are 4 times more wind-resistant
than conventional fleece and represent the evolution of lightweight insulation. Proprietary
yarns and a very tight construction greatly reduce the effects of wind chill, the Achilles heel
of traditional fleece. The durable water-repellent surface sheds rain and snow. Velour or
pebbled back efficiently traps air and provides a high warmth-to-weight ratio. Both surfaces
of these fabrics are finished for maximum durability and pill-free performance. They retain
their insulating ability and original appearance after repeated use and laundering. The
combination of wind resistance, warmth, and breathability provides outstanding comfort in a
wide range of activities. Polartec® Wind Pro® fabrics are ideal for stylized or technical
outerwear as well as versatile layering garments.

Polartec® Windbloc® - Polartec® Windbloc® fabrics block 100% of the wind and offer
maximum protection from the cold and the elements. They combine the warmth of Polartec®
thermal fabrics with a polyurethane barrier membrane that allows moisture vapor
transmission and is completely windproof and waterproof, eliminating the need for a
windbreaker or additional shell. This reduces the weight and number of layers needed to
protect and insulate. These fabrics are very durable, quiet, and non-pilling, and have
enhanced stretch and recovery, making them appropriate for general outerwear and
accessories where weather protection is desirable. Polartec® Windbloc® fabrics are ideal
when the activity level is low or intermittent, and when cold and inclement weather demands
high-performance outer protection.

Polartec® Windbloc-ACT® - Polartec® Windbloc-ACT® fabrics provide wind and


weather protection for active sports where enhanced breathability is required. By combining
several features in a single fabric, they eliminate the need for a windbreaker or additional
shell. Patent-pending Air Control Technology® (ACT) enables the fabric to block 98% of the
wind. The remaining 2% is allowed to circulate within the fabric, which greatly enhances
moisture vapor transmission - 2 times faster than other windproof fleece Ð and improves
breathability, reducing the risk of heat-stress buildup. Featuring a breathable stretch-
polyurethane membrane, Polartec® Windbloc-ACT® fabrics are constructed with durable
water repellency to shed rain and snow. Versions are available that feature a Polartec®
Power Dry® lining for moisture management. Polartec® Windbloc-ACT® fabrics are also
very durable, quiet, and non- pilling, with superior stretch and recovery. They are ideal for
active, forward-motion sports requiring warmth and protection from the elements.
