GORE-TEX Experience Tour: The three ideal jackets with GORE and MAMMUT are ready

After the suspense there were two final days packed with excitement and hard work for the three finalists who won the chance to create their own ideal jackets.

Following the event in Switzerland at the Mammut headquarters on 14th and 15th March, it was time to put their skills to the test in the certified Gore laboratories in Urgnano (Bergamo), northern Italy, in the actual production of the three jackets..

There was an atmosphere of excitement and curiosity and an interesting exchange of ideas with the representatives of Gore and Mammut. During the last two days the main focus was on fabrics, colours and the GORE-TEX membrane. Finally, the three winners were able to put on their own “exclusive” jackets and test their performance in person.

For Francesco Grossi, one of the winners, it was a unique experience: “Two highly intriguing, intense and international days! At last I have constructed my very own personalised super jacket (with a “teeny” bit of help from some people who really know their stuff). It’s fantastic; I’m now ready to test it out on Monte Bianco.”

It was an experience that according to the winners will stay with them always. This was a unique chance for these young people to see the workings of an outdoor company for themselves, to get to know the people, the work, the professional skills and the passion behind brands like Mammut and GORE-TEX.
