We all know how unpredictable the British weather can be. Those grey rain clouds can creep in at any time, even when the day is hot and the sky looks clear. When that happens, it’s important to be prepared with the right clothing. That’s when your GORE-TEX jacket will come in handy.Read more
GORE-TEX was developed as a breathable solution to nylon clothing. Although nylon was highly waterproof, it also traps sweat inside, making the clothes damp and unpleasant to wear.
Engineers eventually adapted the waterproof properties of nylon to create GORE-TEX. Unlike nylon, GORE-TEX has millions of tiny holes in the fabric, allowing microscopic sweat vapours to escape. However, these holes are still 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop, meaning the clothing remains impressively waterproof.
