Technology

GORE-TEX® Pro

What is it?

The next generation of GORE-TEX® Pro products utilizes a totally new, patent pending, membrane technology. This new membrane, which is used exclusively in GORE-TEX® Pro products, consists of multiple ePTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) layers with a unique microstructure. These new GORE-TEX® Pro fabrics are Gore's most durably protective mountaineering hard shells ever.

How does it work?

Building on time tested Gore membrane technology this new generation of GORE-TEX® Pro products uses a 100% ePTFE based multi-layer membrane construction that eliminates the need for the protective Oleophobic layer of traditional GORE-TEX® Pro products allowing for increased breathability while preserving its protection against contamination.

What are the benefits of this technology?

With up to a 28% increase in breathability over current GORE-TEX® Pro laminates, this technology increases the interior comfort of the garment by enabling the wearer to feel less clammy and more comfortable over a wide range of temperatures and conditions. The new membrane technology performs better in lower humidity conditions, is more comfortable in warmer conditions caused by solar loading, and has improved dry out times in conditions with frequent work-rest cycles with.

Designed to be even more durable and rugged than past generations, the new GORE-TEX® Pro fabrics feature a new high density ripstop micro grid woven backer for snag resistance on the inside, and a collection of durable abrasion resistant face fabrics on the outside.

DriClime®

What is it?

DriClime® mesh is a bi-component denier gradient dimensional knit made of two different denier yarns. Using extremely fine deniers this knit is extremely light with superior wicking performance.

How does it work?

The larger outer yarns are a special filament yarn with an open capillary structure, which pulls the moisture away from the skin to the backside of the mesh where it spreads to increase evaporation. The dimensional structure of the knit combined with the smaller denier yarns on the backside of the mesh increase the surface area allowing for greater moisture holding capacity.

What are the benefits of this technology?

This technology increases the interior comfort of the garment by enabling the wearer to feel less clammy and more comfortable over a wide range of temperatures and conditions. The mesh prevents condensation from collecting on the skin no matter what the level of activity due to its 3 dimensional structure. The dimensional knit structure also helps by spreading the moisture over a larger surface area maximizing the efficiency of the evaporate process. This technology solves the problem of condensation and internal comfort that even the most breathable of fabrics have problems with during high intensity activities.
