In our TESTED FOR LIFE Tryouts, we expose our products to extreme conditions out in nature. This means GORE-TEX products have to prove themselves in the types of places you'll be using them. And that's why we're inviting you to join in our TESTED FOR LIFE Tryouts Challenge.

Take part in the TESTED FOR LIFE Tryouts and win a trip to Iceland

Love the fresh air? Love spending as much time as possible in the great outdoors with your family? Or you prefer to push yourself in winter sports all on your own? Whatever you love doing outside: we want to know all about it. Join us for the TESTED FOR LIFE Tryouts! Show us how you push your GORE-TEX products to their limits - right where you enjoy being most. And then tell us what makes that place so special to you: Is it the breathtaking view from a snow-capped mountain peak? Or the unforgettable moments with family and friends in an urban park right around the corner?


Taking part is as simple

Wear your GORE-TEX products and test them out in your favorite spot in the great outdoors. Share a photo or video of yourself on Instagram @GORETEXeu with the hashtag #TestedForLife, write a quick caption and if you like, tag your location.

The top prize: 7-day trip to Iceland for two

We'll send you and a guest on a seven-day adventure you won't soon forget. Eternal ice and hot springs, black beaches and fresh snow - the landscape of Iceland is marked by fascinating contrasts.
