Arc'teryx has a longstanding relationship with its textile partner, Polartec®. We work together to develop fabrics that deliver specific performance requirements. Polartec® Power Stretch fleece with Hardface® Technology is an exceptionally warm fleece with superior abrasion resistant properties that sheds moisture and layers easily— perfect for alpine conditions.
Designed to sit closely to the body to hold heat in and facilitate the rapid transfer of moisture vapour, a trim fit also allows easy layering over top as conditions change.
The hood is slim and with the stretch in the fabric, it can also be used as a neck gaiter or balaclava.
