What is the differnce between "Polarfleece" underthings, and just regular Fleece underthings?
(Besides the price)
I was shopping and found some "fleece" undergarments, and the label said all the thing they claim "Polarfleece" does, such as wicking away moisture and retains heat when wet Etc. It is some sort of polyester material. Is "Polarfleece" just a registered trade name for "fleece"?
O.K. Now I can see that Polartec is a three layer composite, where plain fleece is just that , fleece, one layer. Is Polartec, far superior, a bit superior, or about the same when it comes to warmth, when compared to fleece?
I know... They all say they are better, warmer, but I am looking for some first hand info, from people who might have used both, under similar conditions. Maybe I should do a poll to see who thinks which is the warmest.
