Power Dry

 

Power Dry keeps the wearer dry and comfortable due to the next-to-the-skin construction. The soft inner layer rapidly wicks perspiration away from the body while the outer layer spreads moisture for maximum evaporation. It is designed to be a base or only layer. Power Dry fabrics are ideal for sports that create significant body moisture due to high exertion and aerobic activity.

Comes in 0.5mm weight, 1mm and 2mm.       power-dry-color-chart Dec 2015

Power Shield is a fabric known as a soft shell. The fabric is extremely abrasion resistant for long lasting durability with a water repellant surface that sheds rain and snow. It blocks 98% of wind to reduce wind chill but is breathable. Clothing made from Power Shield provides warmth without the weight and bulk of traditional insulating fabrics. The shell creates less noise than traditional fabrics and is machine washable.

Power Shield comes in four weights:

  • 0.5mm (Ultra-lightweight)
  • 1.0mm (Lightweight)
  • 2.0mm (Mid-weight)
  • 4.0mm (high-loft velour inner)   〈 11.5 oz/sq. yard 〉

1) dark brown   brushed grid back

2) dark eggplant/brown  velour back

3) black   grid fleece back

Power Stretch

power-stretch-color-chart Nov 2015Power Stretch is a 4 way stretchy fabric that is used for tights, t-shirts and extra-breathable panels on jackets. One side is fleece and the other side is a stretchy lycra with a smooth durable backing for better layering of clothes.

The fabric has wicking/siphoning properties for moving moisture away from the body. It also has odor reducing treatment to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

Clothing made from Power Stretch is ideal when superior abrasion resistance and maximum freedom of movement is desired such as for climbing/running/cycling/cross-country skiing tights and equestrian pursuits.

There are five weights of Power Stretch available:

  • 1.0mm (Lightweight)
  • 1.5mm
  • 2.0mm (Mid-weight)
  • 2.5mm (available with DWR Water Resistant finish)
  • 3.0mm (Heavyweight)

Retro-X

retro-x-color-chartRetro-X comes both with or without a windblocking membrane. It is the warmest fleece around and looks like sheepskin with a heavy nylon or mesh backing. This material is for really cold outings, but it won’t smother you once you’ve warmed up.

Windbloc

Windbloc fabrics have a membrane or film of windblocking material that is semi-breathable. This membrane is bonded or laminated to the outer fleece layer to create a water resistant shell. The inside of the lightweight Windbloc is a nylon mesh. The mid-weight has a thin wicking inner fleece layer.    windbloc-color-chart 2015

 

Wind Pro

wind-pro-color-chartSimilar to Power Shield, Wind Pro is a soft-shell fleece featuring a very tight knit for wind resistance while remaining breathable. Slightly heavier than the heavyweight Power Shield.
