Polartec®  FLEECE

Polartec®  Fleece, developed by Malden Mills (US), was so successful that the mill even changed its name to Polartec®.  

Over the years, many other mills attempted to copy this material, but none succeeded.  Polartec® fleece remains the undisputed leader.

In our experience, even Polartec® fleece made under license in China didn't measure up to the quality of genuine U.S.-made goods.

Polartec® 300  Fleece Jackets

According to what customers have told us, you can search far and wide, without
much success, for quality comparable to our Polartec
® 300 fleece jackets.

How come?

The vast majority of fleece garments is nowadays made in Asia, using
Asian-made fleece, which is thinner, rather flat looking,  has only
mediocre stretchability, and tends to dry slowly.

Contrast this with TAIGA's fleece jackets made with genuine, U.S.-sourced Polartec®300 fleece...
Crafted with meticulous care, these luxuriously plush & cozy garments are supremely stretchy & comfortable
and quick-drying to boot...
IDEAL companions for the cold season!

* The closest comparable jacket we could find is the 'Denali 2' from The North Face®
($229.99) which, besides other differences,has an extra pocket but lacks underarm
zippers.(Info. from TNF website, 26 Nov.2016)

Made with a lighter, 100-weight version of Polartec® fleece,these garments score top marks in versatility. They are warm (yet practically never overheat), and are very lightweight not bulky... Perfect for travel.
