To ensure that every outdoor enthusiast is well prepared and gets the most out of each activity, a different functionality of a garment is needed. For outdoor enthusiasts the simple question is: for what type of activity do I need a jacket? Fitness for use – that’s what excellent outdoor products are designed for. For instance, a trail runner has different needs than an ice-climber – regarding outside temperature and the garment’s ruggedness and functionality. Only by choosing the right equipment outdoor enthusiasts can make the most out of every kind of sport. Each GORE-TEX product class consists of a distinct laminate package including specific core technologies such as membrane, production processes and textile choices.

Garments engineered with GORE-TEX product technology are durably waterproof and windproof combined with optimized breathability. Gore invests heavily in field testing to understand end user needs which allows Gore to provide the GORE-TEX GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise to consumers. A huge variety of product forms in the GORE-TEX product class – ranging from 2L laminates to lightweight and soft 3L laminates- is offered to provide the right product with an optimum level of comfort and protection for Hiking, Trekking or Skiing.

Mountain biking, trail-running, ski-touring, speed mountaineering and other high aerobic sports are those activities where GORE-TEX Active products come into play. Garments engineered with GORE-TEX Active product technology are built for extreme breathability and are ideal for highly aerobic, done in a day activities. All components are built for optimized sweat management to ensure extreme breathability and optimum comfort in high aerobic conditions. The performance is also supported by a tight fitting and minimalistic garment design.

GORE-TEX Pro products are designed for extreme and extended exposure. Garments engineered with GORE-TEX Pro product technology are built for maximised ruggedness and are ideal for extreme and extended use. All components are built for maximised ruggedness while strict textile performance specifications ensure optimum strength. All GORE-TEX Pro garments must pass Gore’s toughest test conditions and most aggressive rainstorm test.

GORE-TEX footwear with SURROUND™ Product Technology not only keeps your feet dry all around, it also allows them to stay nice and cool. The innovative sole structure on these shoes blends prominent functionality with contemporary design.
Shoes with SURROUND™ Product Technology have a special GORE-TEX laminate lining that is integrated into the shaft and surrounds the foot – from above as well as below. Together with the open sole construction, this creates an absolutely waterproof and all-around highly breathable shoe.

SURROUND™ Product Technology for outdoor footwear – all-around breathability for hiking footwear
With its GORE-TEX SURROUND™ product technology the company unveils a radically new technology for durably waterproof hiking boots with all-round breathability.
Shoes with GORE-TEX SURROUND™ product technology feature special GORE-TEX laminates that are integrated into the shoe upper and completely surround the foot – on all sides. What makes them so distinctive is that they are not only as durably waterproof as any other GORE-TEX product, they are also breathable all around.
The centerpiece of the new technology is a special construction under the foot. Sweat can escape through the GORE-TEX laminate positioned in the underside of the shoe into the open structure of the “spacer” – and from there out of the shoe via side ventilation outlets. The unique construction keeps your feet drier and enhances your sense of well-being.
