Gore-Tex® 3-Layer Outerwear Construction:

2-Layer construction

Ideal for a wide range of outdoor activities, with this construction a GORE-TEX® membrane is bonded to the outer fabric only. Benefit: The separate lining inside improves comfort and versatility. This construction can be combined with insulation, keeping the wearer dry and warm.

3-Layer construction

Unlike the 2-layer construction, this one bonds the GORE-TEX® membrane to both the outer fabric and the inner lining. Benefit: No movement between the layers, which means less wear and tear and enhanced durability.

Z-Layer construction

Z-Liner Construction a Gore-Tex® membrane is bonded to a lightweight fabric, and a liner is freely suspended between the outer fabric and the lining. Benefit: Fewer sealed seams means manufacturers have more freedom for fashion applications. This construction can be combined with insulation.

Additional features available with Gore-Tex Pro® fabrics:

 

Gore micro grid backer technology

Using an innovative patent-pending internal backer fabric, this technology reduces abrasion and snagging, enhances breathability and decreases weight. It also allows the garment to slide easily over insulating layers.

 

Extreme wet weather construction

Advanced fabric design techniques are used to create garments that deliver superior protection against extreme and extended wet weather conditions.

Gore-Tex® Active products are ideal for highly aerobic, done-in-a-day activities, including:

  • Fishing and hunting
  • Sailing
  • Motorcycling
  • Mountaineering and winter climbing
