What is Gore-Tex?
Gore is a fabric manufacturer best known for their waterproof, breathable fabric Gore-Tex. The key to Gore-Tex is a membrane which provides the tech performance of the fabric; it is made of the same Teflon that is used to make your pots and pans non-stick. The real trick is making this super non-stick and delicate substance stick to the protective fabrics which turn it into the outdoor fabric we know and love. The bit which makes Gore-Tex special is this glueing process which is done in their top secret, big, blue machine. Only a few members of Gore’s staff know how this is done, it’s one of the biggest secrets in outdoor kit and has been the subject of many a nerdy forum post.
Gore-Tex Pro is the thickest, heaviest and most durable of the Gore-Tex fabrics, designed for the most extreme environments. It features a tough outer shell and soft inner lining, bonded to the Gore-Tex membrane, which improves packability and weight while maintaining the durability and weather protection it’s famous for.
