Armada Rotor Power Dry H.E. Hoody - Armada developed a modern Polartec layering system to keep skiers warm, dry, and comfortable. Using a version of Polartecr Power Dryr High EfficiencyT with Polartecr Odor Resistant with Polygiener Technology, the Rotor was designed to be a versatile, low profile, hooded midlayer with a longer, slimmer fit that stays tucked in on a powder day and looks good around town. Polartecr Power Dryr High Efficiency, a version of the popular Polartecr Power Dryr fabric designed to keep your skin dry when you sweat, is differentiated with a grid back that maximizes warmth, minimizes weight, and enhances breathability. Polartecr Power Dryr High Efficiency fabrics weigh less, take up less space, and deliver more insulation and breathability than most other fabrics in their class.

  • Marmot Armageddon Glove - The Marmot Armageddon Glove uses a new application of Polartecr Thermal Pror, the latest evolution of synthetic insulation offering a rare combination of lightweight warmth and true breathability. Because Polartecr Thermal Pror insulation is highly durable and more stable than other synthetic insulation products, an open-construction interior fabric was selected to create an air-permeable package. This small amount of airflow rapidly draws moisture away from the hands and allows Polartecr Thermal Pror to be worn in a wider range of activities compared to classic "vapor barrier" style insulation.

  • The North Face men's Polar Hooded Jacket - The Polar Hooded Jacket is a sleek, hybrid, body-mapped soft shell that combines the warmth of a puffy, the moisture transport properties of fleece, and the protection of a soft shell. The body is made of new Polartecr Power Shieldr High Loft²  soft shell fabric that's both 25 percent warmer and 25 percent lighter thanks to a revolutionary new lamination technique. A new version of Polartecr Thermal Pror is used in the sides, underarms, and hood to insulate without inhibiting breathability and moisture vapor transport. Unlike down or classic synthetic insulation, this version of Polartecr Thermal Pror is highly stable, so The North Face was able to pair it with a much more open, breathable fabric on the inside to significantly improve moisture movement and eliminate the vapor barrier phenomenon of most puffies. The result is the warmest, lightest, most compressible soft shell on the market.
