Rainwear for the dedicated outdoors person, the cleanly designed Minimalist is lightweight and reliable thanks to Gore’s inimitable PACLITE® laminate fabric.
GORE-TEX® Paclite® garments feature the lightest, most packable fabrics. GORE-TEX® PacLite® garments are durably waterproof, windproof and breathable and are built for activities when weight and space are critical, but protection is still important.
The outside fabric is constructed of high-performance polyester or nylon and the inside uses a specific GORE-TEX® membrane with a protective layer made from an oil-hating substance and carbon. So no separate lining is required. This makes GORE-TEX® Paclite® shells lighter and smaller to pack away.
Special Gore-Seam® tape technology ensures all seams are 100% waterproof.
GORE-TEX® products with Paclite® product technology is the ideal solution for hiking, golf, travel and other activities where space and weight are critical. A protective layer on the inside of the GORE-TEX® membrane makes a separate lining unnecessary. The result: minimum weight and pack volume.
