Win a 66 North Snaefell jacket worth £345 and eliminate the wet winter sweat-fest thanks to Polartec®
The outdoor industry is often guilty of prioritising high waterproof ratings to get us outside in all weathers but its high rain protection value can equate to a sweaty experience that's cold and clammy.
Breathability has invariably come more into focus with a fabric's ability to absorb our sweat, releasing it through the material itself, where it can evaporate more quickly becoming more important. If you can combine this with protection against the elements then you have a winning formula.
None have nailed this more than Polartec. Established in 1906 as Malden Mills, Polartec is the premium provider of innovative textile solutions, responsible for inventing modern synthetic fleece in 1981. One of their fabric innovations is a good name to get to know this winter. NeoShell offers an unrivalled capacity to stop water and wind permeating through to your skin, without restricting the release of sweat and excess body heat out.
