NEW GORE-TEX® ACTIVE PRODUCTS

with Revolutionary Permanent Beading Surface

Rain and wind stays out
Moisture vapor escapes

Permanent Beading Surface
Water beads on the surface so a few quick shakes of the garment renders the surface dry.

The new revolutionary GORE-TEX® Active Products feature an outer surface that permanently repels water. They are the lightest and most breathable GORE-TEX® products available. The new product is also waterproof, windproof, very packable and maintains the wearing comfort in a broad range of weather conditions.

Meeting the demands of running and cycling athletes, the new GORE-TEX® Active products durably protect against wind & rain and reduce sweat accumulation in high aerobic activities. Uniquely designed, the technology eliminates the face fabric, preventing absorption of water in order to maintain comfort in high aerobic activities. Garments will retain these attributes during use, wearers will not experience the chilling effect that can result from a wetted out face fabric, and a few quick shakes of the garment will render the surface dry. The excellent balance of protection and comfort allows the wearer to leave the garment on – rain or shine.

Ideal for

  • Trail Running
