A term used to describe fabrics or garments with closed pores, so water or air will not pass through.
GORE-TEX® fabrics are created by laminating the breathable GORE-TEX® membrane to high-performance textiles, then sealing them with an innovative solution for guaranteed waterproof protection.
Garments made with GORE-TEX® fabric with Paclite® product technology are durably waterproof, windproof and very breathable. With an extremely lightweight and packable construction, they are the ideal solution for hiking, cycling and other sports where weight and space are critical. These garments keep you dry and cool during demanding activities and warm during cool down, even in windy, cold weather. A smart, convenient solution for weather protection, garments made with GORE-TEX® Paclite® fabric are easy to pack and take little space in your bag.
