The most recent GORE-TEX® innovation, C-Knit Backer Technology delivers a new level of softness and breathability with the complete windproof and waterproof protection you expect from Gore. Made with extremely fine yarns on circular knitting machines, the new C-Knit is lighter, softer, and more breathable than anything that’s come before.


Featuring a cutting-edge, patent-pending membrane technology, the new GORE-TEX® Pro is designed to perform for the most serious athletes in the most extreme weather conditions. The 100% ePTFE based multi-layer membrane is exceptionally breathable, making it ideal for pronounced work/rest cycles—like intense climbing pitches coupled with chilly belays. To ensure expedition-worthy durability and abrasion resistance, all garments engineered with GORE-TEX® Pro are required to use a face fabric denier of 40 or greater.


The most versatile laminate technology, GORE-TEX® products supply durable waterproof, windproof, and breathable performance that’s ideal for a wide range of activities—whether you’re skiing at the resort, hiking in nasty weather, or commuting to work on a rainy day. This proven membrane is designed to maximize both comfort and protection when you’re out in the elements.

GORE-TEX® Active

Exceptionally lightweight and extremely breathable, the GORE-TEX® Active laminate is the ideal choice for highly aerobic, done-in-a-day outdoor pursuits. The streamlined 3-layer membrane cuts weight, packs down small, is comfy next to skin, and still offers the wind and waterproof protection you expect from Gore-Tex. To guarantee performance for the fast-and-light crowd, garments engineered with GORE-TEX® Active require a face fabric denier of 40 or less.

GORE-TEX® Surround Footwear

Shoes and boots made with GORE-TEX® Surround technology provide your feet with complete waterproof protection and unrivaled breathability. The unique technology breathes not only through the upper of the shoe, but also from below the foot through strategic spacers and ventilation outlets. As a result, your feet stay drier and more comfortable, reducing the risk of blisters and chafing.
