GORE-TEX® fabrics are waterproof, windproof and highly breathable. All GORE-TEX® products are manufactured according to strict quality and performance standards and will keep wearers dry in even the toughest conditions. Placed between outer materials and the garment lining, the GORE-TEX® membrane allows perspiration to escape while providing a barrier against both water and wind. A waterproof GORE-TEX® insert bonded to liner fabric then grip-taped to shell fabric, GORE-TEX® with X-TRAFIT provides a movement-free bond for a better fit and enhanced dexterity and fit. Outdoor Research uses GORE-TEX® with X-TRAFIT for increased performance in select skiing, ice climbing and mountaineering handwear.
