Polartec Wind Pro
Wind Pro is a highly wind resistant fleece fabric from Polartec. It works by tightly knitting the fleece fibres together to make the fabric less permeable. As well as blocking out wind, this technique also helps to make the fabric naturally more water resistant than traditional fleeces. Wind Pro still retains the thermal characteristics and comfort of regular fleece, but is slightly less breathable.
Hardface technology was developed by Polartec and is a means of fusing a special polymer to the outer layer of fleece fabric. This makes the surface of the fleece smooth and abrasion resistant, as well as improving the water and wind resistant properties of the fleece - but still allowing the levels of stretch and breathability to stay the same.
