Whether you’re part of the on-board crew or driving I-95 north from Marblehead to be at the finish line, the Halifax Race is a time to be dressing for warmth and for comfort…’cause July in this part of the country can be a jackpot of weather and it’s never a sure bet who will arrive first, the cars or the boats. Either way, dressing in layers is preferred by most and when the emphasis is on lightweight, warmth and comfort, our North Atlantic Fleece Polo and Fleece Pant is the system to have. Polartec 100 the durable and lightweight fleece known for its warmth and ease of wear is the core ingredient in our North Atlantic Polo. To add to its durability, we’ve placed reinforcement patches of durable, supple nylon at the collar, shoulders, and elbows. The snap closure front makes this a versatile garment you can wear as an outer shell and just as easily as the main layering under our exclusive DryHandle coats. Large chest pocket with button snap flap closure, elasticized cuff, and elasticized drawstring string waist…make this an unusual find among the fleet of fleece in the world today.Our North Atlantic Fleece Pant is the one to have…over your shorts and under your bibies (they’re also the best Saturday morning pajamas we know of). Light, airy and cut for lots of room everywhere makes them comfortable and the Polartec 100 fleece keeps you warm when that perfect Indian Summer day is suddenly interrupted by a NOAA weather radio service waning: a full-gale warning is in effect from Buzzards Bay north to the Hauge Line. Elasticized waist and cuffs keep them comfortably in place…even at times like this when it becomes a challenge keeping anything in place. Ehh, hemm.

Now don't get us backwards, we recycle around here. However, for our clothes we prefer natural stuff. Leave it to the Italians, again, to play the game with uncommon flair. For us, they’ve created a unique fleece fabric with all the functional characteristics of natural wool and the feel of cashmere. All but the sleeves are covered with our 466 weatherproof DryHandle fabric to give it a rugged outer skin and to accomodate a legion of pockets. The modified shirtail back gives it s a loose, casual fit at the waist. We know this will become on the most often borrowed items in your closet. Won’t say by whom, just beware.

It’s an off-shoreman’s sixth sense…the intrinsic ability to get back from where he’s been without the use of navigational instruments. You can pick up the basics from a how-to book, but it’s out there that you do the learning, a hundred miles or more, where one long-liner’s marker looks just like the next.
With the sea of fleece products in the market today, a bit of dead reckoning would come in handy. At first glance, fleece looks mostly alike. The simple fact is, not all fleece is the same. And if you’re committed like we are to unique, functionally superior products, you’ve got to start out right. The fleece we use in many of our products is called Technopile made primarily from wool. 66%, real, natural wool - the stuff that keeps sheep warm by night, cool by day and always dry. Sounds easy? Just getting the fleece is a challenge since only a limited amount is produced each year and by only one source, Italian of course. We reinforce our Wool Fleece Vest throughout with DryHandle, our exclusive 100% cotton, water-resistant fabric.
Look around, use a little dead reckoning and let us know which other company offers this combination of functional fabrics…could be we’re missing something.
