The origin of waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® outerwear, footwear, and gloves starts with five little letters: ePTFE. ePTFE, or expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, was created by Bob Gore in 1969 when he rapidly stretched PTFE under certain conditions. The result was an incredibly strong, microporous material with an amazing list of characteristics including low water adsorption and good weathering properties. By 1978, GORE-TEX® fabric was introduced and the world met the first truly waterproof, breathable outerwear. Thanks to our commitment to innovation and creativity, waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® products have continued to improve and evolve to keep in step with the changing needs of our customers. The basic hallmarks that make our outerwear, footwear, and gloves the choice of serious professionals and casual outdoor enthusiasts alike remain, however:
The GORE-TEX® membrane: The secret of GORE-TEX® products — which are both completely waterproof and completely breathable at the same time — lies within its our revolutionary bi-component membrane. The membrane contains over 9 billion microscopic pores which are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 700 times bigger than a molecule of moisture vapor. So while water in its liquid form cannot penetrate the GORE-TEX® membrane, as moisture vapor it can easily escape.
Waterproof, windproof and breathable: The GORE-TEX® membrane makes garments durably waterproof, windproof and breathable so that you stay dry and comfortable.
|Gore Bike Wear Gore-Tex Guaranteed To Keep You Dry|
Durable: Waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® outerwear is made of the very toughest fabrics and is thoroughly tested to guarantee performance even after serious wear and tear. Easy care: Just because it’s high tech doesn’t mean it has to be high maintenance. GORE-TEX® fabric is extremely easy to take care of and won’t lose its effectiveness even after repeated washing.
Guaranteed to Keep You Dry® Promise: Perhaps the most important aspect of breathable, waterproof GORE-TEX® outerwear. We firmly believe in our outerwear and back it up with a promise: No liquid from the outside will get to you on the inside. This includes moisture from the wet grass you’re kneeling in to the sudden squall you get caught in. We take this guarantee seriously. If you are not completely satisfied with the waterproofness, windproofness, or breathability of your GORE-TEX® product, then we will repair it, replace it, or refund your purchase price.

Born of innovation, creativity and a love of discovery, waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® outerwear encourages you to get out there and get more out of the outdoors. And remember, if it doesn’t say “GORE-TEX®” brand, it’s not.
WINDSTOPPER® fabrics are constructed by laminating our special membrane to a wide range of functional fabrics selected according to the final product’s intended use.
Every square inch of the WINDSTOPPER® membrane contains 1.4 billion micropores. This revolutionary structure is ultra-light, ultra-thin, and highly resistant to extreme temperatures. The microporous structure of the WINDSTOPPER® membrane ensures maximum breathability; cold wind is kept out, but moisture vapor can easily escape.

Integrated into the ePTFE portion of the membrane is a hydrophobic, or water-hating, substance to keep external moisture away from your skin. This thermoregulating effect keeps you comfortable longer, so you can be at your best.
“Dress for the occasion.” Forget fashion rules, we’re talking about achieving optimum climate control based on your intended activity, level of intensity, and environment. That’s why we engineer different WINDSTOPPER® laminates for a wide range of activities and weather conditions.
To construct a WINDSTOPPER® laminate, the ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluorethylene) membrane is bonded to a wide range of high-performance fabrics. Depending on the application, a variety of outer fabrics and lining materials are used to create 2-, 3- and even 4-layer constructions.

More comfort equals better performance. Yes, it really is that simple. Just ask any professional athlete.
WINDSTOPPER® fabrics offer soft, lightweight weather protection in one versatile and durable garment. Owing to their total windproofness and maximum breathability, our garments will keep you comfortable longer across a wide range of weather conditions and activities.

Lower heartbeat. Lower exertion rate. Higher average speeds. These are just three performance-boosting reasons why you should opt for highly breathable fabrics. Need more? How about this: During heavy exertion, our bodies can release over 4½ cups of perspiration in an hour, and up to 17 cups during a world-class marathon. Only the most breathable fabrics can handle this much sweat to prevent you from overheating and eventually becoming chilled. WINDSTOPPER® products are 2X more breathable than comparable windproof products, and offer the same level of breathability as comparable non-windproof products. What makes them so breathable? The 1.4 billion micropores in every square inch of the WINDSTOPPER® membrane let water vapor escape virtually unhindered, even when you’re working at maximum intensity.

Ever felt cold and clammy even though your clothes were dry? You were the unlucky victim of wet out.
WINDSTOPPER® fabrics offer water- and snow-resistant capability with faster drying time.
Different activities and weather conditions call for different levels of protection from rain or snow.
Terms like water repellence, water resistance and waterproofness are often used to describe the varying abilities of textiles to provide protection in wet weather. But each term has a distinct meaning.
1. Water-repellent fabrics shed water and snow as long as the chemical treatment remains intact. Over time, the treatment will wash or wear off and has to be renewed.
Of course, restoring your WINDSTOPPER® garment’s DWR treatment is easy. See how.
2. Only water-resistant WINDSTOPPER® fabrics with a continuous barrier (like the WINDSTOPPER® membrane) durably withstand water entry at pressures up to 0.1 bar. That is why they can offer reliable protection against light rain and snow, even after multiple washes.
3. GORE-TEX® garments, which are made of waterproof fabrics, zippers and sophisticated garment constructions offer total, all-around protection in very wet conditions. Only GORE-TEX® products are “Guaranteed to Keep You Dry.”
– Soft & Stretchy
Soft & stretchy fabrics give you greater freedom of movement and comfort for improved performance. All WINDSTOPPER® garments feature soft & stretchy materials.
– Abrasion Resistant
Only face fabrics made of abrasion-resistant materials can durably withstand friction from stones and rocks – or the straps of a backpack. Fabrics without this feature will pill and lose functionality over time. That’s why only the most abrasion-resistant face fabrics like polyester and polyamide – which are proven to offer reliable protection even under rough conditions – are used for WINDSTOPPER® garments
