Polartec Power Stretch®
Polartec Power Stretch is a four-way stretch thermal fabric, designed to be as stretchy possible while still retaining its original shape. While most elastics become damaged when they are overstretched, Polartec use extra-resilient elastic fibres which will always come back to their original form undamaged. This means that garments will fit better for longer and allow an uninhibited range of movement, while still providing all the warmth, breathability and comfort of of standard Polartec fabrics. Because of its unique two-layer construction, Power Stretch can be worn comfortably next to the skin or as an outer layer in milder weather.
Four-way stretch fabric has been engineered to stretch both lengthways and crossways, compared to standard two-way stretch fabrics, which are elasticated either one way or the other. Usually implemented by by adding spandex or elastane to the fabric, it gives you a wider range of movement and comfort by moving with your body and allowing for more coverage when you’re moving around a lot.
