GORE-TEX® FabricsThe most tested — and most trusted — weather protection you can wear
For more than 20 years, GORE-TEX® fabric has been the leading technology in high-performance weatherwear. Windproof, waterproof, and breathable are more than just words to us; they are guaranteed in every GORE-TEX® garment and accessory.
Original GORE-TEX® fabric, available in two-layer and three-layer construction, is the technology that started it all. Two-layer is lighter weight and softer — ideal for use in sports apparel and streetwear. Three-layer is a heavier-duty alternative — ideal for more demanding pursuits or climatic conditions, such as serious backpacking, climbing, and mountaineering.
No other company offers the proven protection that GORE-TEX® outerwear delivers. And no other company is more demanding when it comes to manufacturing and construction.
We test every garment design before it is approved for production and sell GORE-TEX® fabric only for the production of approved designs. Plus we guarantee the performance of all finished GORE-TEX® apparel, footwear and accessories, not just the fabric from which the finished product is made. So if your garment says GORE-TEX® outerwear on the label, you know it carries the Guaranteed To Keep You Dry® promise, no matter who manufactured it or where you bought it.
Of course, simply owning a GORE-TEX® product does not guarantee comfort. You must match the right garment to the activity and the individual. When used as intended, your garment will be durably waterproof, very breathable, and windproof, even when you are sitting or kneeling on a wet surface. It will keep water from entering through zippers, pockets, and other openings — provided, of course, that they are properly closed. And it will allow perspiration vapor to move quickly from the inside out, keeping you dry and comfortable across a wide range of temperatures and activities.
