Very cool video by Arc’teryx about a material that every skier loves but probably don’t actually know that much about. When it comes to waterproof performance there’s nothing better than GORE-TEX®. A great many of us owe GORE-TEX a great debt of gratitude for allowing us to stay dry, warm and comfortable on the slopes in otherwise nasty conditions. Take a few minutes to appreciate the material and its manufacture:
HOW IT WORKS
Our products are vigorously tested for reliable protection even in demanding conditions. The GORE-TEX membrane at the heart of our technologies contains pores smaller than a water droplet, but larger than a water vapor molecule. So rain and snow can’t get in, but sweat can get out. Whatever happens, you can trust that your original GORE-TEX products will keep you dry.
OUR GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ PROMISE
Our unique customer promise means that you can rely on your original GORE-TEX products for their entire useful life. If you’re not completely satisfied with the waterproofness, windproofness, or breathability of your product, we’ll repair it, replace it, or refund the purchase price.
