Polartec® Thermal FR® Fleece

Polartec® Thermal FR® Fabric is intended to stop the usual elements of “wind, water, dirt and fire.” The velour construction of the Polartec® Thermal FR® creates air pockets that trap air and retain body heat, and it is made with a unique blend of fibers for permanent flame resistance. The fabric offers superior warmth without weight, great breathability and durability, and is quick drying, soft and comfortable.

Henderson Aqua Lock®

The Hoods, gloves and boots offered by Switlik are part of Henderson's Aqua Lock® wet suit system. The hoods, gloves and boots fit with our U-Zip-It™ suit to form a nearly impenetrable seal to minimize cold water exposure to the extremities.

Every seam on the hood, gloves and boots are first double glued and blind stitched inside and out. The outer seam is coated with a special waterproof Aqua Lock® liquid tape barrier which seals the seam from water entry and also helps protect the stitching from damage and unraveling. The interior of the Aqua Lock® hood, gloves and boots are lined with Golden micro fleece lining which dries quickly and feels luxurious against the skin. It also improves ease of taking the gear off.
