What is GORE-TEX® fabric?

GORE-TEX® fabrics are created by laminating GORE-TEX® membrane to high-performance textiles and then sealing them with an innovative solution for 100% waterproof protection.

They are durably waterproof and windproof combined with optimised breathability so you can stay dry from the inside out. 




GORE-TEX® products: Multi-purpose solution


Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® fabric are durably waterproof and windproof, combined with optimized breathability—enduring products that maximize protection and comfort for the wearer.

Multiple fabrics and construction methods include insulated, non-insulated, 2-Layer and 3-Layer.

GORE-TEX® products are developed to be multi-purpose and the main features are:

  • Stylish
  • Versatile
  • Durable




GORE-TEX® Active products: Ideal for highly aerobic activities


Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® Active fabrics are built for extreme breathability and are ideal for highly aerobic, done-in-a-day activities.

Main features include:

  • Extremely breathable
  • Lightweight
  • Minimalist design



GORE-TEX® Pro products: Ideal for extended and extreme conditions


Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® Pro fabrics are built for maximized ruggedness and are ideal for extreme and extended use.

Main features include:

  • Breathable
  • Extremely durable
  • Versatile



Seam Sealing


Seams and stitching are essential aspects of a garment's construction. Unfortunately, they compromise the water and liquid protective properties of the fabric: seams and needle holes may be small, but they will still leak. That's why they must be completely sealed.

For absolute waterproofness and liquid resistance, our GORE-TEX® products rely on GORE-SEAM® TAPE. This unique tape, backed by reliable Gore equipment and know-how, ensures that every seam and tiny stitch hole is sealed.

Just as GORE-TEX® constantly improve our fabrics, they continue to innovate taping and sealing technologies to improve garments by reducing their weight, refining their drape, and increasing their durability.

Watch how it works: GORE-TEX® Product Technology
