Polarmax Review

With winds gusting at 50 mph and morning temps in the 40s, it's a good thing we haven't put away our POLARMAX baselayers...

Hold on!
Before heading out to Colorado for spring break, we were fortunate to receive POLARMAX baselayers for the whole family.

With aggressive fabric development and product testing, a strong green story, and a completely vertical business structure, it is no wonder that Polarmax® is one of the nation’s top base layer apparel manufacturers. 

Advanced Base Layer technologies differentiate Polarmax® products from the competition. Our line is updated with styling that delivers comfort and versatility for the range of winter activities you enjoy. Whether you're hiking, climbing, skiing, snowboarding, hunting or whatever your sport may be, there's a Polarmax® base layer that's right for you. Acclimate® Dry is exclusively featured in all Polarmax® fabrics, keeping people dry and warm during cold weather activities. Our garments are specifically designed to match a variety of climate extremes: Warm: Lightweight, Warmer: Mid-Weight, and Warmest: Heavy-Weight. This allows you to select base layers that accurately match your level of activity and climate condition.

  • Acclimate® Dry Performance Fabric
  • Stretches for Comfort
  • Wicks Moisture Away from Skin
  • Quick Drying
  • Breathes
  • Scent Prevent™ Anti-microbial
  • Comfortable Flat Seams
  • Easy Care - Wash and Wear

First off, the kids said they didn't even notice their baselayers - which I think is a big compliment for children's clothing.  They were comfortable and warm - no scratchiness or binding.  In addition, after a full day of skiing - no noticeable stink:).  Only complaint from Tazer was that the pants were difficult to get over his feet (once past his feet, though, they fit well).  The 4-Way for me and Kovas (check out his review at Midwest Multisport Life) and Double Layer for the kids were the perfect weight for our warm spring skiing.

Add the "Made in the USA" label, and you have the smartest choice for both consumers and retailers (from www.polarmax.com). 

(Disclaimer: We were sent these Polarmax baselayers  for free to review on our blogs by Terra Public Relations.  I did not pay for these items, receive payment for these reviews, or agree to give positive reviews. Aside from information gleaned from the company website, the opinions are my own.)

  1. They are SO incredibly comfortable! I just can't believe we're back to near winter temps.

  2. Wow- it's hard for me to imagine those temps right now...it's in the 80's in Tx. :) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. No stink is a very good thing. Wonder if that works for stinky teenage boy? :) And you guys keep your winter temps up north!
