    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I was recently gifted a Rab Flux Pull-On. It is a smooth face fleece, weighing about 8.5oz in a men’s medium. Not knowing anything about it, I tried researching only to find really nothing informative online. So, I called and emailed Rab. Repeatedly. Eventually, someone was available to help, but could provide little detail as to what Thermic Fabric is or how it compares to other popular fleece types. So, I turned to you BPL. Does anyone here know what this fabric is, what it does best, and how it compares to other materials? Thank you</p>

    Based on Woubeir’s specs it appears to be a Polartec Power Stretch faux variant. This type of material is optimized for low aerobic activity in cool or cold weather. It has largely been superseeded by Polartec Power Dry which which addresses both high and low aerobic activity.

    It is not listed as a Polartec-fabric in their workbook, though.

    I use my Rab flux bottoms as cold weather sleeping layer.  they are warmer than the power dry  bottoms I have.
