GORE-TEXT

HOW DOES THE GORE-TEX MEMBRANE WORK?

The GORE-TEX membrane has 9 billion pores per square inch, with each pore 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet. These tiny holes are too small for water and wind to pass through from the outside, which is how we can guarantee you'll stay dry and warm in a garment made with GORE-TEX fabric. But these same pores are large enough for moisture vapor to pass through, so your body's pe... read more

HOW DURABLE IS GORE-TEX FABRIC?

GORE-TEX fabric will last for many years.

WHAT IS GORE-TEX FABRIC?

First introduced in 1978, GORE-TEX fabric is created when we laminate our patented GORE-TEX membrane to high performance textiles, which are then used by authorised garment manufacturers to make outerwear, accessories, and footwear. read more

WHAT'S THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF A GORE-TEX GARMENT?

The GORE-TEX membrane won't deteriorate with time, and our garments are guaranteed to be durably waterproof and breathable.

If you maintain your garment properly, you can expect it to last.   read more

WHY DO GORE-TEX GARMENTS NEED SEAM TAPE?

Seam tape is used to seal the tiny holes created by sewing when GORE-TEX fabric is made into garments. These holes may be small, but they can cause leaks. We specially manufacture our own GORE-SEAM® Tape and regulate the seam taping process to ensure compatibility with our fabrics and ensure the durability of seam waterproofness. read more

WHY IS THE WINDCHILL FACTOR IMPORTANT WHEN I'M OUTDOORS?

When the wind blows through a garment that's not windproof, it destroys the warm layer of air next to your skin — your microclimate. You start to feel uncomfortable almost immediately. Just think about how many times you've retreated indoors when the windchill temperature was minus 10° F/-23° C, even though the thermostat read 40° F/4° C. It's that windchill effect: it makes everythin... read more
