Technology and fabrics

Gore-Tex® Active fabric

Garments made with GORE-TEX® Active fabric are durably waterproof, windproof and extremely breathable – the most breathable fabric in the GORE-TEX® product family.

Meeting the intense aerobic demands of the alpine athlete, these fabrics are the ideal solution for highly aerobic done-in-a-day activities, even in bad weather. Garments made with GORE-TEX® Active fabric are lightweight and soft, with excellent next-to-skin comfort, thanks to reliable moisture management. The fabric’s construction keeps your body dry by reducing the accumulation of sweat so you stay cool during activity and warm during cool-down. With GORE-TEX® Active fabric, you can put the garment on, leave it on and focus on the experience rather than your clothing.

Construction

GORE-TEX® Active product technology combines a lighter, thinner GORE-TEX® membrane with a fine ≤40 denier performance textile to deliver an ultimate 3-layer solution. On the liner side, a proprietary lamination technology integrates the backer textile directly into the GORE-TEX® membrane. The streamlined laminate package and the optimised garment design exhibit utmost heat loss and moisture vapour transport properties, thus holding true to the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY® promise.
