Company Overview

We call North Carolina home. Polarmax®  was born in Candor, NC in 1985. We still manufacture our products right there in the same Candor Plant. Yes, it's hard to believe that we're a vertical textile and base layer apparel manufacturer. These days, there are not many companies that have made the commitment to R&D, knitting, finishing, cutting, sewing, and distribution in the USA like us. We hire only the best craftspeople to manufacture our products, using the finest fabrics, flat seam technologies, and sewing techniques. Our employees live and work in North Carolina. And, as a result, we have a very small caron footprint for our manufacturing and distribution (located in Southern Pines, NC). We are proud to say, “We are 100% made in the U.S.A.” So raise a flag and get outdoors.



Longworth Guarantee - If our Product does not live up to your expectations – just return it to the store you bought it from or mail back to Polarmax® for replacement or repair. Normal wear and tear damage will be repaired at a reasonable charge.

Polarmax® Innovation - We engineer the Acclimate Dry performance fabrics with their unique moisture management system, superior breathability, anti-microbial, non-shrink & wash and wear qualities.

Polarmax® Green - Our complete manufacturing facilities, warehouse, and shipping activities take place within a 30-mile radius. Many of our yarns and fibers are recycled and our packaging is either recycled and/or re-taskable. We are environmentally friendly on multiple fronts.

We maintain control of every process used to bring the best technical base layer products to you with the least impact on our environment. From fabric development, product design & testing to manufacturing, warehousing, shipping & distribution, we are focused on the best practices that are earth-friendly & conserve our resources.
