If you're looking for high-performance outdoor gear that can withstand weather conditions, then you need to know about Gore-Tex membrane and product technology. This technology is used in many products, including jackets, footwear, and gloves, to provide superior protection from the elements. Here's what you need to know about Gore-Tex and the benefits of this technology.
WHAT IS GORE-TEX PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY
The GORE-TEX Brand has prided itself on science-based innovation for the past 40 years - it's literally in our DNA. Their technologies are a major component of jackets, footwear, and gloves from your favorite outdoor, athletic, and lifestyle brands.
The basis for all their technologies is an extremely thin membrane. Their bond this membrane to high-performance linings and outer textiles. It's this construction that the brands then use to create and sell the finished products. They closely partner with some of the biggest brands in the world to create high-quality products that can stand up against any weather – whether you're at the top of a mountain or downtown.
THE KEY BENEFITS
These are the most important benefits for all GORE-TEX products branded with the black diamond label saying GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™.
Durably waterproof products made with their technologies offer you superior protection – even in the most extreme conditions. GORE-TEX membranes have nine billion pores per square inch. Each of these tiny holes is 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet. Rain simply cannot get in. It's waterproof.
When the wind gets inside your clothes, you feel cold. Their totally windproof products completely block the wind, so you stay protected. The structure of the membrane is comparable to that of a hedge. When the cold wind blows, it is caught up entirely in the branches and is therefore diverted away from the body. It's windproof.
The harder your body works, the more you sweat. Breathable products made with their technologies let moisture vapor from sweat escape.
At the same time, each one of those billions of pores is also 700 times bigger than a water vapor molecule. Your sweat can escape. It's breathable. The combination of these benefits makes the GORE-TEX membrane unique. No water and wind can get in, but sweat can get out. You are protected and feel comfortable.
SCIENCE AND TESTING
Their test the styles of the brands that use their technologies before they hit the retail shelf in their GORE-TEX labs to ensure that you can rely on the promised functionality.
These brands trust us because their testing standards are as high as it gets. They're also testing for durable performance to improve the longevity of everything their make to keep you protected and comfortable at the highest levels for as long as possible because the gear that performs for longer is better for you and the environment.
In conclusion, the Gore-Tex membrane and product technology is a great way to stay dry, windproof, and breathable while working out or in extreme conditions. The testing standards are high, so you can trust that the products will perform well and last a long time.
