After years of struggling to adapt nylon into clothing, engineers realised they needed a more breathable option. While nylon is highly waterproof, it actually traps sweat inside, making the clothing impractical for activewear. Eventually, GORE-TEX was developed as a comfortable, high-quality alternative to nylon clothing.
GORE-TEX was engineered to be impressively breathable, with millions of tiny holes in the material to allow sweat vapours to escape. These holes are also 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, effectively blocking the rain out while keeping the wearer comfortable.
