The origin of waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® outerwear, footwear, and gloves 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.

GORE-TEX Overview

GORE’s 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 their outerwear, footwear, and gloves the choice of serious professionals and casual outdoor enthusiasts alike remain.

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 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 patented GORE-TEX® membrane makes garments durably waterproof, windproof and breathable so that you stay dry and comfortable. Gore’s WINDSTOPPER® Outerwear combines durable wind protection and high breathability in garments that keep you warm and comfortable with fewer layers and less bulk.

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.
