GORE-TEX Care Instructions

Not only are GORE-TEX products built to last, they are also easy to care for. Regular care will ensure excellent performance, extended useful life and continued coverage under our GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise. That’s good for you and for the environment.

How to care for your GORE-TEX products

Care should include regularly washing, drying and when necessary, reapplying DWR (Durable water repellent). Follow these three steps and you’ll get better performance out of your GORE-TEX gear and it will last longer. Make sure to always check the manufacturer’s care instructions — usually found on the inside tag of your product.
