Polartec Power Stretch Vs Power Stretch Pro

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.

As summer approaches, I keep looking through my list of past walks to see which ones I want to do again. 

In September 1986 I walked from Lake St Clair, up past Little Hugel to Mt Hugel. I then continued down the western slopes to Lake Hermione, followed a valley up to Lake Petrarch and walked back down to Lake St Clair. A good partly offtrack bushwalk. This time I only had two days, so the plan was to camp next to a tarn up on the Mt Hugel plateau.

I recently had a good chance to continue using my Mont Zero Super Light sleeping bag and Mont Zero Ultralight down jacket when I rode the 2020 Terra Australis Bike Epic. Due to the Queensland and Victoria border closures, the 2020 version of this annual bike-packing race was shortened to a 1500km self-supported race from Byron Bay to Canberra in late September.

One of the biggest jobs at Mont is customer service, with the inbox sometimes a little overwhelming! But the emails are overwhelmingly positive; questions about our gear, emails about how well a customers gear worked, and fun stories and photos from the wild.

It isn’t all smiles, though, negative emails do occasionally pop up. But not to let that get us down, often these emails highlight a failure of communication on our part or provide information for us to reflect upon and improve.
