Durable waterproof fabric for military garments

Gore Military Fabrics : 16 January, 2014  (New Product)
Gore-Tex has produced its new light and fast fabric to provide garment manufacturers with a material for use in harsh conditions
Durable waterproof fabric for military garments

The light and fast GORE-TEX fabric from W L Gore & Associates is an extremely breathable, lightweight fabric that provides durable waterproof and windproof protection with improved next-to-skin comfort. The new technology significantly reduces build-up of under-layer condensation during and after periods of high intensity activity without sacrificing environmental protection.  

Light and fast GORE-TEX fabric enables garment designers to build lightweight, packable garments.  Extremely breathable, the fabric transfers moisture from sweat away from the body and provides excellent next-to-skin comfort by managing the condensation of sweat from the inside. Durably waterproof and windproof, it protects the wearer in rain, snow and windy environments. Engineered for highly aerobic activities, it provides a new level of comfort performance in active wear.  The fabric is also contamination resistant, protecting the wearer against sweat and sebum, jet fuels, DEET, and other petroleum, oils, and lubricants.  

"We believe that light and fast GORE-TEX fabric is a solution for the highly active operator in need of enhanced weather protection during their mission," says Tim Quinn, Product Specialist at Gore.  "Gore continues to play a pivotal role in the development of protective fabric solutions for the military.  We are pleased that key customers and industry leaders, including ADS, Arc’Teryx, Patagonia, and Wild Things are introducing new products that feature this new lightweight, highly breathable fabric."

This new streamlined GORE-TEX fabric technology, combined with Gore’s scientific system level approach to garment design, brings an innovative level of comfort and performance into durably waterproof, windproof, and breathable garment systems.
