GORE-TEX fabrics are known for their durable waterproofness over their entire lifetime, even after contamination.

Totally windproof, GORE-TEX fabrics preserve the body's microclimate and keep the wearer consistently comfortable.

The unsurpassed comfort of GORE-TEX fabrics comes from their excellent breathability - allowing sweat vapour to escape.

GORE-TEX fabrics are long-lasting, even after exposure to tough conditions.

The GORE-TEX membrane

The GORE-TEX membrane is an extremely thin layer of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE). It has over 1.4 billion microscopic pores per cm². It's these pores that give the GORE-TEX fabric its core benefits: durably waterproof, windproof, and breathable protection in outerwear, footwear, gloves - leaving the professionals to focus on their important work.

The membrane comes in various constructions with benefits selected for their end use. For example, the 2-layer emphasises comfort and versatility, and can also be combined with insulation for added warmth. The 3-layer construction features enhanced durability, but remains lightweight.

GORE-TEX product technology continues to evolve to meet the ever-challenging needs of defense personnel, firefighters, law enforcement, emergency medical services, utility workers — all those at the front lines of saving lives, keeping the world safer and keeping crucial services running smoothly.
