Polartec Power Stretch Vs Power Stretch Pro

Many outdoor clothing brands make garments with Polartec Power Stretch fabric. But few of these brands let you know about Power Stretch’s smarter, tougher and more resilient sibling by the name of Polartec Power Stretch Pro.

Yes, both fabrics have a super soft lining, both have four-way-stretch, both have DWR and anti-odour treatment, and both have excellent moisture wicking capabilities. But only one has a Nylon face finish. So what?
