The Oakham Gilet is made from Polartec Thermal Pro which was developed to bring a wider variety of styles and performance functionality to synthetic fleece technologies. Evolving the design of Polartec’s original fleece fibre technologies has advanced the compositions and applications of synthetic fleece fabrics. The gilet has the ability to regulate core warmth for optimal comfort is provided by thermal air pockets that contain heat without restricting breathability. Minimising the mass through open air channels also drastically reduces fabric weight and increases compressibility for better packing and storage. Other benefits include its being fast drying, durable and easy to care for… machine washable!
