The following constructions are available for GORE-TEX® products

2-Layer Construction

2-layer GORE-TEX® products use a laminate construction in which a special GORE-TEX® membrane is bonded to the outer textile. The membrane is protected on the inside by a separate drop lining.

Available in a wide variety of outer fabrics, garments made with 2-layer GORE-TEX® fabric are the versatile solution for style, comfort and protection against the elements.
3-Layer Construction

A special GORE-TEX® membrane is bonded to a wide range of outer materials and a backer on the inside to form a single fabric.

Garments made with GORE-TEX® 3-layer fabric offer added durability without extra bulk. The reduced layers required mean less weight and more freedom of movement.
Z-liner Construction

Z-liner GORE-TEX® products have fewer sealed seams, allowing for more freedom in the design process. Z-liner constructions can be combined with insulation.

Garments made with GORE-TEX® Z-liner constructions offer excellent comfort in a wide range of styles. A GORE-TEX® membrane is bonded to a lightweight fabric and the liner is freely suspended between the outer fabric and the lining.
LTD Construction

A specific GORE-TEX® membrane is bonded to the inner lining. Special GORE-SEAM® tape technology ensures all seams are 100% waterproof.

Garments made with GORE-TEX® LTD constructions provide a good combination of durable waterproof protection, comfort and versatility through a combination of soft and high-performance face textiles, membranes and special lining.
