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?

So more durability, higher resistance to pilling, better stretch and stretch recovery, and higher wind resistance. So there!

Power Stretch Pro fabric is the perfect baselayer for high intensity activities in cold weather: from skiing and mountain biking to bushwalking, climbing and mountaineering.

You will get better performance, longer lifespan, greater comfort and significantly more value for money.

Australian longicorn borers are known worldwide for their ability to aggressively infest eucalypt plantations. In Australia, too, longicorn outbreaks have struck plantations in Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland. By contrast, outbreaks of longicorns are rare in native eucalypt forests. Why? Well, it’s not clear, but the current theory is that to be successful, longicorn populations must develop in forests that are persistently drought-stressed. In plantations, a single species is often planted over a varying landscape that is, in some cases, too dry. Native eucalypt forests, however, generally comprise numerous species leading to a patterned landscape of species that is more resilient to stress.

This magnificent park has landscapes that range from temperate rainforest with beautiful waterfalls to extensive alpine areas with some stunning mountain topography. Mount Field National Park, along with Freycinet National Park, were both declared national parks in 1916, making them the oldest national parks in Tasmania.
