Gore-Tex is one of the most popular fabric options for waterproof clothing. This tough material is not only highly waterproof but also impressively breathable, offering you all-day comfort and protection on your hike. Gore-Tex clothing gives you the confidence you need to go further – no matter how bad the weather is.
Gore-Tex is actually a sandwich of different materials, consisting of a tough outer layer, two protective layers, the Gore-Tex membrane and an ultra-soft lining. Designed to utilise the durable, waterproof properties of nylon, Gore-Tex gives you ultimate protection from extreme weather conditions.
The breathability of Gore-Tex comes from the millions of tiny holes in the material. While being too small to let water droplets in, these microscopic holes allow sweat molecules to pass through, keeping you cool and comfortable throughout the day.
And the innovation doesn’t stop here. At Trekmates, we stock a variety of Gore-Tex technologies, including Gore Active, Gore Warm and Gore Grip. Designed to protect you from the harshness of the outdoors, Gore-Tex fabrics are a must-have for any hardcore adventurer.
If you’re a hiker, camper or avid walker, Gore-Tex is an essential part of your outdoor wardrobe. And with a selection of Gore-Tex hats, gloves and gaiters to choose from, we’ve got everything you need to be protected from top to toe.
