Made with the four-way stretch of Polartec® Power Stretch® that ensures warmth without weight, the Powerstretch Cap features a Polartec® Wind Pro® panel over the ears for extra warmth and wind protection where you need it most. Wear this warm, extra breathable fleece cap under a helmet on cold morning commutes or while touring in the backcountry – the visor adds a bit of sun protection.
Polartec® Power Stretch® fabrics feature a proprietary construction with two unique surfaces: the durable nylon outer layer is wind- and abrasion-resistant; the soft inner layer pulls moisture away from your skin keeping you dry, warm and comfortable. The fabric also features compression stretch which can improve performance and reduces the chance of certain types of stop-go injuries. Polartec® Power Stretch® excels at handling the demands of the next-to-skin environment.
Moisture and high relative humidity next to the skin cause discomfort. Polartec® Power Stretch® keeps the skin dry through three complementary mechanisms:
Polartec® Wind Pro® fabrics are extremely breathable yet provide 4 times more wind resistance than traditional fleece. This is the new "super fleece" that spans an incredibly wide range of conditions; performs as both outerwear and insulation; and offers exceptional durability. This is a versatile fabric that can be worn all year long for a variety of activities, from watching an outdoor football game to snowshoeing.
