Hardface®

Adding durability and water resistance to your outerwear.

Polartec® Hardface® Technology is a revolutionary new "surface-fusion polymer application". This proprietary application, which can be added to almost any fabric, provides the following results:

  • Dramatically increases abrasion and snag/pick resistance
  • Enhances durable water repellency
  • Creates a smooth surface for easy layering
  • Maintains a uniform afterwash appearance

Fabrics featuring this technology have greater outerwear performance than traditional fleece (or other traditional fabrications) without sacrificing breathability, versatility or comfort.

Durable Water Repellency

All-weather adventure wear that bounces back, no matter what Mother Nature does.

Rain and snow bead up and roll off the surface of the fabric. Offers protection from surprise changes in the weather and enhances dry time.

  • Sheds rain and snow
  • Quick-drying

Polygiene® Odor Resist Technology

Give your gear a workout–it'll stay fresh and clean.

Polartec Fabrics with Polygiene® effectively combat body odor by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria in the fabric. Polygiene® Odor Resist Technology is a silver-salt treatment that permanently binds to the fibers of a fabric. It is nonleaching and safe. Polygiene is bluesign approved and qualifies for Oeko-tex 100 certification. The silver in Polygiene is 100% recycled, recovered from recycled electronics.

This system differs from yarn-based silver ion delivery systems which extrude silver ion containing particles into the yarn. Those leave a majority of the active ingredient (silver chloride) trapped inside the yarn where it cannot perform. The silver-salt in Polygiene works because silver physically disables the growth of bacteria. Silver salt technologies require a tiny amount of silver to be highly effective. This differs from chemical products to which bacteria can build a tolerance.

  • Safe and natural. Polygiene Odor Resistant Technology provides permanent odor protection by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria in the fabric
  • The silver-salt in Polygiene works because silver physically disables the growth of bacteria
  • Provides permanent odor protection for the life of the garment. Garments stay fresher longer between washes
