The 3-Layer Technology
Polartec® NeoShell® is the first fabric to combine the superior breathability, ventilation, and stretch of a soft shell with the waterproof performance of a hard shell, delivering the best of both worlds. Combining protection from wet weather and unprecedented breathability through dynamic air exchange, NeoShell® dramatically improves the environment inside the garment.
Releasing excess heat directly through the fabric membrane reduces the need to manually adjust gear during activity. Shedding entire layers or relying on pit-zips to dump heat often leads to overexposure that can be avoided altogether through enhanced breathability.
The Men's Powerwool Hoody was designed with the everyday user in mind. Designed to be worn during a chilly morning of exercising or layered under a shell while you ski or snowboard. The hoody is designed to be close-fitting making it easy to keep your neck and ears warm under your climbing helmet. By using Polartec's Powerwool fabric we were able to design a hoody with better body temperature regulation and antimicrobial properties to keep the odors away. The fabric is a blend of merino wool and polyester. The polyester is blended in for increase in durability compared with 100% merino products.
Combining merino and synthetic fibers in a hybrid construction enhances the performance benefits of each fiber while resolving many flaws of traditional blends. Wool's natural odor fighting properties are given a boost, and the unpredictability of shrinking and shape loss caused from washing is prevented through the resilience of synthetics.
Wool fibers offer increased base comfort by retaining insulation and breathability even when wet. Their absorbent nature pulls moisture vapor away from your skin, transferring it to the outer synthetic layer where it expands and evaporates more quickly. This mechanical wicking action allows Polartec® Power Wool™ to keep moisture in motion at all times.

Polartec® Power Shield® fabrics are designed to keep your skin dry when you sweat. All fabrics in this series feature a patented bi-component knit construction that uses different yarns on either side of the fabric. This creates two different surfaces: one that is optimized to move moisture away from the skin, the other to dry quickly.
