Power Dry®

Moisture Management

Polartec® Power Dry® is the most advanced next-to-skin moisture management fabric.

By using our proprietary bi-component knit construction, every fiber works with maximum efficiency. Moisture is quickly pulled away from the body and transferred to the outer surface for faster evaporation during activity.

Performance built to last.

Power Dry® Features & Benefits







About Power Dry® Technology

Polartec® Power Dry® is engineered to deliver superior mechanical wicking.

This bi-component fabric technology is constructed with a hydrophilic interior to pull moisture away from the skin and transfer it to the outer layer. Power Dry’s exterior surface area disperses and releases this moisture for more efficient dry times. Continuous evaporation prevents saturation and regulates temperature in both hot and cold conditions.
