Windbloc®

A barrier that stops everything, except for you.


Polartec® Windbloc® is designed to block 100% of wind and provide maximum protection from harsh elements and inclement weather. By embedding a breathable micro-porous laminate between a durable outer layer and lofted inner fibers we created a stronger balance between insulating warmth and performance stretch. This flexible versatility gives this protective fabric incredible resilience against the weather and abrasive elements without restricting comfort.

Technology

A barrier that doesn't back down against the harshest conditions and elements is essential for protective layer fabrics. Polartec® Windbloc® holds strong winds and all forms of moisture to eliminate the burden of carrying additional protective shell materials during activity.

This resilient material technology ensures the outside elements remain outside so core temperatures can retain maximum warmth and comfort in harsh conditions. By adding a polyurethane laminate membrane between a durable woven exterior and soft interior we developed the ability to block wind and water without limiting micro-climate breathability.

HOW IT WORKS

Enhancing the flexibility of a fabric not only increases elastic stretch and recovery strength, but resists overall damage caused from abrasive surfaces. Individual fibers can maintain their stability longer and provide the resilience needed to consistently perform after heavy use.

Polartec® Windbloc® resists the degradation of fiber pilling caused from repeated trips through the washing machine. The ability to remain soft and quiet, yet firm against the elements gives this fabric the versatility to excel in a variety of environments and activities.
