The world‘s most waterproof/breathable membrane. GORE-TEX fabrics are perfect for highly aerobic sports that require the ultimate in waterproof / breathable technology. The membrane has a water resistance rating of over 50,000 mm and 25,000～98,000 g/m² ·24 hrs breathability rating. (JIS L-1099 B-1 method)
3-Layer GORE-TEX® Fabrics
With a 3-layer construction, a fine nylon mesh is bonded to the interior surface of the garment to protect the GORE-TEX membrane from abrasion and dirt.
GORE® C-KNIT BACKER Technology
The waterproof breathable membrane has been laminated to an extremely thin knitted fabric. Compared to traditional the tricot used by GORE-TEX the knitted backer in the C-Knit technology yields a fabric that is 15% more breathable and 10% lighter.
GORE-TEX PACLITE® PLUS Technology
GORE-TEX PACLITE® PLUS uses a 2-layer unlined construction. The GORE-TEX membrane is laminated to an abrasion resistant outer face textile, assuring durable protection. A new abrasion resistant treatment of the inner surface makes a separate lining unnecessary. The result is a thin, light and highly packable fabric that is waterproof, windproof and extremely breathable.
2-Layer GORE-TEX PACLITE® Technology
With a 2-layer construction, a thin mesh or other fabric is sewn inside the garment but is not bonded to the GORE-TEX membrane.
