Marmot’s proprietary synthetic insulation, ThermalR® displays a great weight to warmth ratio while also being highly abrasion resistant and retaining its qualities even when damp. Fine, multi-channeled fibres work as a part of a layering system, assisting in wicking the moisture away from the body. Combined with hollow fibers for maximum loft and minimum weight, the ThermalR®’s capabilities are truly impressive.
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.
