GORE-TEX ePE Membrane Update


The AW23 season sees the relaunch of the Trekmates GORE-TEX glove collection with sustainable materials. In addition to incorporating post-consumer recycled fibres, recycled linings, and SEE SEEMAL recycled insulation, we have changed over to FC free and recycled fibre GORE-TEX ePE waterproof and breathable inserts.

The GORE-TEX brand’s groundbreaking ePE membrane stands as a monumental leap in product development, marking the most significant advancement in decades. This revolutionary technology, the ePE membrane, provide durably waterproof, windproof, and breathable protection and comfort with a long product life; they are FC-free* with a reduced carbon footprint**.

The culmination of years of meticulous development work, the ePE membrane represents the future of GORE-TEX products, upholding the brand's unwavering promise to keep you dry. The innovative new GORE-TEX membrane is based on expanded Polyethylene (ePE). This membrane is light, thin yet strong and enables durable waterproof, windproof and breathable performance.

In our continued partnership with the GORE-TEX brand, this season, Trekmates proudly incorporates the latest GORE-TEX fabrics into both timeless classics and new releases.
