Ask someone to name a fabric for outdoor clothing, and chances are they’ll answer you with the words “Gore-Tex.” Gore-Tex are well known around the world, and with good reason. Their range of high tech fabrics have been keeping adventurers, mountaineers, skiers, snowboarders, trail runners, hikers, and cyclists dry for so long now that it’s difficult to imagine a time when literally nobody on Earth went off on adventures in a Gore-Tex jacket.
To help you distinguish between the different Gore-Tex fabrics, we’ve compiled together this collection of six Gore-Tex jackets. Each of them has been constructed from a different Gore-Tex technology range, and to help you make sense of that we’ll be providing you with an explanation of the science behind each and the benefits it produces. Because, let’s face it, the last thing you want is to wear the wrong Gore-Tex jacket for the occasion.
