True North Wins 2012 North American APEX Award

Seattle, WA – True North, a manufacturer of fire resistant fleece clothing, was awarded the 2012 North American APEX Award for its Dragon Shield™ FR Softshell Jacket

Polartec® announced the 13 North American garments chosen for its annual APEX Awards. This honor goes to the finest Polartec-based garments. A panel of judges selected the winners based on the style, function and fit of the garments as well as the most innovative and appropriate uses of Polartec® fabrics in the designs.

Made from Polartec Power Shield® FR fabric, the Dragon Shield FR Softshell Jacket offers true flame resistance combined with a tightly woven face for abrasion resistance and a durable water repellency that provides weather protection while maintaining critical breathability that allows moisture vapor transport to keep you from overheating. It also features a grid fleece interior for insulation and improved wicking, reducing the weight and number of layers needed to insulate and protect.
