The GORE-TEX® fabric is one of the most innovative technologies on the market. These are extremely thin membranes that are waterproof, windproof and breathable . There are billions of pores in the membranes, each individual pore is 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water.

This makes GORE-TEX® clothing essential for outdoor activities.
