What is Gore-Tex?
Gore is a fabric manufacturer best known for their waterproof, breathable fabric Gore-Tex. The key to Gore-Tex is a membrane which provides the tech performance of the fabric; it is made of the same Teflon that is used to make your pots and pans non-stick. The real trick is making this super non-stick and delicate substance stick the the protective fabrics which turn it into the outdoor fabric we know and love. The bit which makes Gore-Tex special is this glueing process which is done in their top secret, big, blue machine. Only a few members of Gore’s staff know how this is done, it’s one of the biggest secrets in outdoor kit and has been the subject of many a nerdy forum post.
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.
