Materials - Thinsulate™ and Polartec® PowerDry



There is a reason why original Thinsulate™ insulation is Cabela's No. 1-selling insulation: Warmth without weight or bulk. Thinsulate™ insulation is 1-1/2 to two times warmer than down and other polyester insulations when equal thicknesses are compared. Add in softness, extreme flexibility, and breathability for even greater comfort and you wind up with the premier insulating medium for outdoor sporting wear. Unlike other insulation materials that lose heat-retaining efficiency when wet, Thinsulate™ insulation absorbs less than 1% of its weight in water which means that heat is retained even under soggy conditions. Since its introduction, Thinsulate™ insulation has been effectively used in every sort of outdoor clothing.

The fibers of Thinsulate™ Insulation are exceedingly fine, making them ideal for trapping insulating air and reflecting back the body's radiant heat. Thinsulate fibers
The fibers in 6-denier polyester are much thicker and not nearly as effective at trapping air or reflecting back body heat. 6 denier fibers

Polartec® PowerDry

Polartec® Technology

The revolutionary, pillar-shaped structures of the E.C.W.C.S. fabric effectively draw moisture away from your skin for nexttoskin dryness. Once the moisture is pulled upward, it spreads evenly, and the fabric's exceptional breathability and airflow evaporate it until you're dry again.

Polygiene® Treated

We've equipped our E.C.W.C.S. fabric with Polygiene®, a natural, highly effective and permanent antimicrobial treatment. This scientific breakthrough uses natural silver salt in low concentrations to combat odor-causing bacteria. So effective, it produces an odor-free freshness that remains for the lifetime of the garment.

Polartec PowerDry
  • Odor-resistant technology
  • Layers slip on and off easily
  • Modern styling
  • Transports moisture away from the skin

  • Gridded Fabric

    Thanks to its advanced grid pattern, E.C.W.C.S. fabric provides long-term warmth across an extremely wide range of temperatures. Its high-loft fiber pillars open up space for thousands of air channels between your skin and the fabric. This body-length field of air is proven to retain more body heat, increase soothing airflow and it even minimizes bulk and weight.
