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.
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.

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.
Mountain Designs is positioned as one of GORE-TEX® leading technical brand partners. It is relationships like these that can guarantee we will continue to deliver authentic world-class products.
