Getting to Know Outdoor Fabrics





In the field of outdoor clothing, you may have heard of many well-known household brands such as Archaeopteryx, Mammoth, North Face, Columbia, etc. In addition to their own logos, the products of these brands are also printed with a common logo: GORE- tex.

GORE-TEX fabric is a light, thin, strong and durable film exclusively invented and produced by W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc. in the United States. It is waterproof, breathable and windproof. It breaks through the shortcomings of ordinary waterproof fabrics that are not breathable, so it is known as the "cloth of the century". GORE-TEX fabric is not only widely used in aerospace, military and medical fields, but also used by the world's top brands to make a variety of casual clothing series. It has become a leader in outdoor sports products, so it is American "Fortune" magazine lists it as one of the one hundred best American products in the world and is highly respected.

Four major functions

water proof

When the body gets wet from rain or snow, it will cause severe loss of body temperature and make us feel cold; therefore, outdoor clothing must first be waterproof. Because the GORE-TEX membrane has an average of 9 billion pores per square inch that are 20,000 times smaller than water droplets, preventing rainwater from penetrating, GORE-TEX outdoor clothing is absolutely waterproof.


The human body is constantly sweating. If sweat accumulates in clothes and condenses into sweat, the moist sweat will cause the body to lose temperature, so we will feel cold. Therefore, we need to wear breathable clothes to allow sweat to evaporate easily and avoid moisture accumulation. The pores of each GORE-TEX film are 700 times larger than water vapor molecules. Human body sweat can easily evaporate through the film, keeping the body comfortable and dry at all times.


Windy weather can cause our body temperature to drop, so we need windproof clothing to maintain our body temperature. The pores on the surface of GORE-TEX film are extremely small, forming excellent windproof performance, so it can block the penetration of cold wind and maintain a proper body temperature.


GORE-TEX fabrics must pass rigorous testing to ensure long-term waterproof, breathable, and windproof functions.

Gore-Tex has been making tarpaulins for decades. During this period, countless brands tried to imitate or even surpass them, but none of them could shake Gore-Tex's position. It can be said that as long as you have outdoor clothing made of Gore-Tex fabric, it must be a piece of clothing of excellent quality, which also means it is expensive.

It should be noted that the characteristics of gtx fabric determine that it is suitable as a protective layer fabric and is generally worn as the outermost layer. It does not mean that it has a strong thermal insulation effect. It needs to be paired with other mid-layer thermal equipment.
