EMBRACE THE ELEMENTS
When the weather closes in, GORE-TEX products will keep you protected from start to finish.
GORE-TEX products are well known for providing long-lasting, comfortable weather protection you can trust from your head down to your toes. But what exactly is the GORE-TEX fabric? Is it a coating or an impregnation? An outer fabric or an inner textile lining? It's none of those but all of the following:
The GORE-TEX membrane is at the heart of all GORE-TEX products. The GORE-TEX membrane is an extremely thin layer of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE). It has over 9 billion pores per square inch. It's these pores that give the GORE-TEX fabric its characteristics.
In order to use the GORE-TEX membrane in the manufacture of a finished product, it first has to be bonded between a high-performance lining and outer textiles. This combination of membrane and support material is referred to as the GORE-TEX laminate.
GORE-TEX product technologies offer unique solutions for specific activities and climate conditions to fit your individual needs.
All products engineered with GORE-TEX product technology carry the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise.
