Three hikers under waterfall - new GORE-TEX products

    Made for life’s adventures

    Waterproof. Windproof. Breathable. GORE-TEX products with ePE membrane offer durable performance that stands the test of time.

    The new GORE-TEX products introduce an innovative membrane

    We believe we have a responsibility to help find solutions that lead to a better tomorrow. The ePE (expanded polyethylene) membrane in new GORE-TEX products is a key milestone in our responsible performance journey, providing high-performing, durable products that are engineered for long product life.  

    The all-new GORE‑TEX ePE membrane is light and thin, yet strong, and it's PFC free* with a reduced carbon footprint**. To form new GORE-TEX products, the membrane is combined with carefully selected textiles including recycled, solution or undyed textiles***. 

    * advances Gore Fabrics´ goal of being free of PFCs of environmental concern over the lifecycle of its consumer products. In this case, the goal is accomplished using nonfluorinated materials. Learn more on
