What is the GORE-TEX® fabric?
GORE-TEX® products are well known for providing long-lasting, comfortable weather protection you can trust from your head down to your toes. But what exactly is the GORE-TEX® fabric? Is it a coating or an impregnation? An outer fabric or an inner textile lining? It's none of those but all of the following:
1. It's a membrane
The GORE-TEX® membrane is at the heart of all GORE-TEX® products. Due to its microporous structure it has some amazing characteristics.
2. It's a laminate
A GORE-TEX® laminate is created by bonding the GORE-TEX® membrane between high-performance lining and outer textiles.
4. It's a promise
All products engineered with GORE-TEX® product technology carry the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY® promise.
