    World-renowned for protection and comfort

    GORE-TEX Garments are not only world-renowned for their protective performance and comfort, they are tested and proven for it. For professionals working in the most demanding situations - in combat, fighting fires, handling emergencies - as well as those working hard every day with hazardous chemicals, electric utilities, or in challenging weather, GORE-TEX Garments are made to be trusted.

    To meet and even exceed these professional needs, GORE-TEX Garments are durably waterproof, windproof and breathable. These core benefits are thanks to the GORE-TEX membrane. It is an extremely thin layer of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE). It has over 1.4 billion microscopic pores per cm² which keeps liquids and wind out but allows skin to breathe.

    The membrane comes in various constructions with benefits selected for how it will be used. 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 Garments can also be enhanced with additional technologies, such as HiLite and Microgrid which enhance performance for specific applications. They are engineered to anticipate the demands of defense personnel, firefighters, law enforcement, emergency medical services and utility workers.

    GORE-TEX Garments ensure that safety, performance and comfort at work are paramount.
