Sizing information

What it does: Nikwax Analogy® Fleece, like mammal fur, repels water and actively pushes both liquid water and water vapour away from the body. Fleeces keep you warm by trapping still air between their fibres. Soak a conventional fleece in water and it loses up to 95% of its insulation. Nikwax® Fleece offers superior comfort, especially in humid conditions.

Key Benefits

  • Two layer construction traps still air giving superior insulation to keep you warm.
  • Outer layer provides Directional water-repellency while the Pump Liner actively pushes liquid moisture away from the body keeping you dry from precipitation, perspiration and condensation.
  • Continues to work just as effectively even in high humidity or very cold conditions.
  • Water-repellency can be easily renewed for the lifetime of the garment with Nikwax Aftercare.
  • The fabric is soft, flexible and hard-wearing.

How it works:

  1. Skin surface
  2. Parameta® S is shown here worn next to the skin, drawing water away to keep you dry.
  3. Nikwax Analogy® Pump Liner pumps water away from the body.
  4. Nikwax® Fleece outer fabric allows air to be trapped between Pump Liner and outer to give insulation.
  5. Outer fabric is treated to give Directional water-repellency, deflecting water away from the body.
  6. Nikwax® Fleece can be combined with Nikwax® Windproof to provide a fully Directional waterproof and windproof system.
