Fleece For The Fleet
Runners know that when the temperature drops below 40, you better bring a hat. Our new Franklin Hat utilizes an extremely soft Polartec® double-knit velour fleece that’s both warm and breathable. Streamlined and lightweight, it’s a simple, effective cap for the coldest days.
This beanie is made from a lightweight and wicking double velour Polartec® fleece selected for its performance on the run.
Double Velour Polartec® Franklin Fleece - 100% Polyester - 186 gsm.
Made from a 100% polyester, this double velour Polartec® fleece is designed for running performance. Premium polyester yarns repel moisture and speed dry times, while the lofted structure of the fleece creates thermal air pockets that retain warmth. The result? A lightweight, fast drying and incredibly soft hat you’ll reach for all winter long.
In 1981, Massachusetts-based Polartec® first engineered polyester fibers into an innovative knit construction with a lofted fiber structure that created thermal air pockets to prevent heat loss and regulate core warmth. Their invention, known as polar fleece, transformed the industry and was the most durable and versatile insulation and outerwear fabric of its day. Continuously refined over forty years, this Okeo-Tex and Bluesign-certified fleece remains a cold-weather performance stalwart for its lightweight warmth and fast-drying characteristics.
