There is literally a fleece jacket for whatever your interest may be because this fabric has evolved over the past two decades to the point that it is available in a variety of textures and weights.
Polartec® Classic 100, 200 and 300 – The granddaddy of fleece, these three choices are classified according to their weight; 100 is lightweight, 200 is midweight, and 300 is the heavyweight of all fleece. Use 100 weight fleece as a warm first layer or on those cool summer nights. 200 weight fleece is a good all purpose fleece that can be used for just about any conditions, and 300 weight fleece is the choice for activities in extreme cold.
Polartec® Power Stretch® – This fabric is made of a durable nylon layer that is both wind and abrasion resistant and is ideal for aerobic activities. It will keep you warm, dry, and comfortable in even the most difficult of conditions. This body-clinging, four-way stretch fabric uses three mechanisms to keep your skin dry. The first is it is extremely breathable and allows moisture to easily escape. Second there are Touch Points on the inner surface of the fabric that wick moisture from your skin to the outside allowing it to easily evaporate. Thirdly the sweat, upon reaching the outside of the fabric, spreads out creating a larger surface area that allows it to dry two times faster than cotton.
Polartec® Wind Pro® – This fabric is 4 times more wind resistant then regular fleece and can be used as both outerwear or in the more traditional role of layered insulating layer. It is made of proprietary yarns that are tightly constructed to reduce the effects of chilling winds. Its water-repellant outer surface is durable and is effective in its ability to repel rain and snow.
Polartec® Thermal Pro® – These are the most technically advanced of all the Polartec® insulating fabrics. It is available in a variety of different textures and patterns. The newest versions are known for achieving the highest weight-to-warmth ratio because of their unique high-loft capability.
Polartec® Power Dry® – Designed to keep the skin dry as perspiration increases this fleece features a patented bi-component knit construction using different yarns on each side of the fabric. By creating two surfaces, one of which is optimized to wick moisture away from the skin and the other to dry quickly, this fleece moves 30 percent more moisture away from the skin than single component fabrics.
For the active outdoor female the complete line of North Face women’s fleece jackets has you covered. Finding the right fleece for you is just a matter of matching your needs with the jacket that best suits them.
