Under Armour Announces Second Polartec(R) Collection

Under Armour announces the second delivery of its "UA Trek" collection featuring Polartec fabrics. Pairing its outdoor performance heritage with current style elements for a complete head-to-toe assortment, the collection includes apparel made with Polartec® Micro technical fleece as well as Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation, each made of 100-percent post-consumer recycled content.

Inspired by workouts in outdoor environments, the products utilize premium Polartec® Micro fleece for temperature-regulation in the body of the garments, with Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation in the hoods for added warmth and weather resistance in cold conditions, enabling the modern athlete to traverse both cityscapes and the great outdoors with equal confidence.

Engineered to provide comfort throughout a wide range of conditions and activity levels, premium 100-percent recycled Polartec® Micro fleece features a lofted structure with thermal air pockets to retain warmth without inhibiting breathability. Highly durable Polartec® Micro fleece is also hydrophobic and fast drying.

100-percent recycled Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation is engineered to provide maximum warmth without weight. The insulation is made of proprietary hollow fibers that are bonded together through a process that reduces environmental impact, while simultaneously providing superior insulating performance. Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation is also hydrophobic, fast-drying and highly compressible .

For women, the collection includes full-zip jackets (with and without a hood), a full-zip mock neck, and pants. For men, the collection includes full-zip jackets, reversible snap jackets, a crew sweatshirt, a 2-in-1 tee and pants. The pieces will retail for $55-120 (USD) and release globally on UA.com and UA Brand Houses beginning December 6.

Under Armour traveled to Iceland to capture the collection's lookbook with distance runner, soccer player and nature enthusiast Angelina Krawczyk; softball athlete, model and Venice Beach, Calif. native Cailee Grayhorse; model and family member to basketball royalty Myles O'Neal; and former track athlete, celebrity stylist, model and artist Will Breveard.
