Product Technologies

Since we first started producing high quality outdoor accessories back in '97 we have used the very best fabrics and technologies to give every outdoor hero the best performing, and greatest value gear. From day one we have worked alongside GORE for high performance, and to this day we use six different GORE technologies across our gloves, gaiters and headwear. We also have our own waterproof and breathable technology in DRY™, DRY Shield™ and DRY Protect™ for reliable protection at great value. Read on to find out what these technologies offer you.


Well known for providing long-lasting, comfortable weather protection you can trust, GORE-TEX products are durably waterproof, windproof and highly breathable - maximising protection and comfort for the wearer.


Offering the feel of direct grip and high tactility through an innovative special-layered construction which attaches the normally loose layers of the glove to each other, preventing movement between them. This provides the optimum tactility and better dexterity for a sure grip, while remaining durably waterproof, windproof and highly breathable.


Enduring weather protection and comfort, balanced heat transfer and optimum moisture management. Your hands stay warmer when it's cold, and drier when you perspire. This is made possible through the whole system of inner lining, membrane and outer material being optimised for enhanced breathability, increasing comfort in a wider range of temperatures and activity levels.


These gloves are designed for longer lasting warmth, with the whole system of inner lining, membrane and outer material engineered to enable a higher insulation performance. Even in harsh conditions your hands stay warmer for longer; and, like all GORE-TEX products, these gloves are durably waterproof, windproof and highly breathable - guaranteed.


GORE WINDSTOPPER fabrics are totally windproof and deliver maximum breathability to keep you comfortable, making long walks against the wind a breeze. Made with a laminated windproof membrane that blocks the wind while allowing water vapour to escape, these windproof gloves minimise the wind chill effect while keeping you comfortable at your most active. Lightweight and with light DWR treatments, Trekmates GORE WINDSTOPPER gloves offer versatility for walkers in changeable conditions on the hill.


Our DRY™ technology is designed to keep dry and comfortable in all weathers. Available in our headwear, glove and gaiter ranges, and with a minimum Hydrostatic head of 3000mm, DRY™ products offer waterproof, windproof and breathable protection for head, hands and feet.


Available for gloves, our DRY Protect™ technology offers long-lasting all-weather protection at great value. The membrane has a minimum Hydrostatic head of 5000mm and works to allow high levels of breathability, while the insulation, lining and outer material keeps the rain out and hands comfortably dry.


Used exclusively on our waterproof gloves, DRY Shield™ technology offers lightweight protection from the elements at great value. With a minimum Hydrostatic head of 3000mm, DRY Shield™ products are waterproof, windproof and breathable.
