Gore-Tex Pro 3L
The three-layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell is Gore’s top spec fabric and is intended for use in the most extreme of environments, from deep powder skiing to freezing cold Scottish couloirs, this is the fabric that will keep you warm and dry. The three-layer Pro shell is the thickest and heaviest of Gore’s fabrics but is also the most durable and protective. The ‘3-layer’ part means that the membrane is bonded to both the exterior colourful fabric and an interior ‘scrim’ which is there to protect the membrane and improve its longevity. The breathability is produced by pores in the membrane which are opened by the high pressure inside a sweaty jacket trying to escape to the low pressure of the world outside. This is an ingenious process which means that the fabric can remain waterproof even with these millions of tiny holes; however its performance can be reduced if it is too warm (high pressure) outside the jacket or the fabric is too wet, which blocks the pores.
Fully Taped Seams
With fully taped (also known as sealed) seams, every possible seam has been sealed up with a waterproof tape to prevent water and snow seeping through the stitching, so absolutely no liquid makes its way into your gear.
Jacket to Pants Attachment interface
This jacket features a simple system that allows you to easily attach the bottom of your jacket to the waistband of your pants. That means less snow in your clothes and more fun in the powder!
