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.
Percolate as the name suggests is extremely packable and lightweight but usually has a slightly thicker outer fabric than the Active Shell making it slightly more protective and better suited to hiking, approaches and camping. Paclite is a 2-layer fabric but instead of a floating liner to protect the membrane is has a ‘half layer’ which is stuck to the inside of the membrane providing protection.
The Cohaesive System
The Black Diamond Cohaesive system uses a specially designed adhesive in combination with specially designed components to embed cord management systems and clever features directly into the fabric. This reduces weight and keeps the outline of the jacket clean and stylish. Fixtures using the Cohaesive system are also often easy to use with just 1 hand.
