Westcomb develops Polartec® Power WoolTM styles for Summer collection


Vancouver, British Columbia (For immediate release) – In keeping with Westcomb’s heritage of rapidly adopting new fabric technologies, the company developed new styles with Polartec® Power WoolTM adding to their expanding Spring and Summer collection.

Performance-driven designs are hallmark of the Westcomb brand. The new Luminous Top for women and the Nova Top for men, both built with Power WoolTM, combine top fabric technology with premium design and construction to achieve the very best in performance.

Polartec® Power WoolTM is a combination of ultra-fine merino wool and synthetic fibers uniting superbly wicking, odor resistant, temperature regulating merino with hydrophobic polyester fibers for garment integrity and speedier dry times. The Luminous and Nova Tops reliably handle the myriad conditions adventures encounter in hot or cool climes, wet or dry weather.

“Polartec® continues to innovate new fabric technologies that further the versatility of Westcomb gear,” explains Alan Yiu, Westcomb’s Chief Designer and President. “We’ve designed our new Power WoolTM pieces to complement the fabric’s best attributes and with the attention to detail, fit and craftsmanship that Westcomb is well known for.”

The long sleeve Luminous Top is designed to be form fitting with a stylish fit. Available in four colors the Luminous features a security pocket on the sleeve; integrated thumb loops and reflectivity. The Men’s Nova Top is a crew neck design, with an embroidered logo, raglan sleeves and a half-zip.

The two new designs are additions to Westcomb expanding line of gear for four-season use. The Power WoolTM tops are suited as next-to-skin performance layers or insulating mid-layers.
