The Power Up Pro Pants are light-weight fleeced pants in a Polartec Power Stretch Pro fabric, designed for use as a base or mid-layer. The Power Stretch Pro fabric is highly wind and abrasion-resistant and offers 4-way stretch for excellent levels of freedom of movement.
Wicking, resiliently stretchy and with enhanced durability, the Power Up Pro Pants are designed to provide comfort and durability against the elements as a thermal baselayer or as a mid-layer. POLARTEC® Powerstretch Pro™ fabric is engineered to push the performance of fleece to it’s best.
The fabric is the main talking point of Montane's Power Up Pro Pants. Today's performance stretch fabrics need to adapt to the contours of the human body for optimal comfort during movement. And Polartec Power Stretch Pro does just that. It's made with reinforced elastic fibers creating 4-way stretch that meets the demanding push and pull of activity. This agile, dual-surface fabric absorbs moisture from the skin while continuously wicking it to the outer layer for fast evaporation. The outer surface has a low-friction finish, so this versatile fabric can layer perfectly with others and resist abrasion on its own.
Feature-wise it's kept pretty basic. The elastic internal waistband will help to wick moisture away and the adjustable drawcord is there to give you the best fit. It's designed to be a slim fit, that way it will fit more comfortable under layers.
