Gore-Tex 3-layer fabric is not quite as rugged and robust as its equivalent Pro shell, which has a super durable and abrasion resistant outer layer, but it still has all the same waterproof, windproof and breathable capabilities, making it ideal for snow sports and a bit of backcountry hiking. The Gore-Tex membrane is bonded with a soft outer fabric and a knit polyester liner, for the maximum comfort and performance over a range of different temperatures and activities. The Gore-Tex membrane is so effective because it is covered with millions of tiny pores, which are too small to let water droplets, but are large enough to let water vapour out. The high pressure that builds inside s sweaty jacket is what allows the moisture vapour to escape through the membrane to the low pressure of the outside world, keeping you comfortable and warm at all times.
The DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish has become almost ubiquitous in the outdoor industry, and the satisfying water beading it provides has become the hallmark of a beautiful jacket. It is not strictly waterproof but will provide protection on it’s own against a light shower; however it does wear off so needs to be topped up from time to time. The DWR stops water from soaking into the outer layer of waterproof fabrics like Gore-Tex meaning they remain breathable and light in even in heavy rain.
