Polartec® Alpha® is a fabric made from 100% recycled and biodegradable polyester fibers woven from recycled plastic bottles. The hollow fibers of Polartec® Alpha® provide thermal insulation and maintain a constant body temperature, but at the same time allow for more free breathing, constant air exchange and comfort.
Polartec® Alpha® is inherently hydrophobic fabric (absorbs less than 1% water), making it ideal for outdoor use, does not retain moisture and dries extremely fast.
Polartec® Alpha® supports the following standards:
