    With the highest levels of wind and waterproofing as well as extreme breathability, GORE-TEX products are among the most efficient outerwear and active clothing worldwide. Designed to optimise the wearer’s experience of any activity, GORE-TEX garments have durability and comfort at their core. To really understand what makes this revolutionary fabric so efficient though, you’ll need to experience it for yourself.

    What is the GORE-TEX SURROUND® 5D experience?

    The GORE-TEX SURROUND® 5D Experience is a multi-dimensional simulation that aims to convey the range of resistances and practical qualities of GORE-TEX gear. You’ll be exposed to the elements in immersive simulations, giving you the chance to see and feel the benefits of the GORE-TEX technology for yourself. Taking place in the main atrium of Westfield Shopping Centre in London, you’ll be transported to a variety of natural locations across the UK without ever leaving the city. 

    Which locations can you experience?

    There are a number of stunning outdoor locations to see during this amazing 5D experience at Westfield Shopping centre. These include: Henrhyd Falls, Wales Henrhyd Falls in Powys is the tallest waterfall in southern Wales, sitting on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. It’s a spectacular 90-foot drop over the edge of a rugged rock formation, and surrounded by quintessentially British wildlife. Idyllic yet untamed, it’s the perfect location to explore with GORE-TEX footwear and waterproof outerwear. Malham Cove, North Yorkshire This distinctive limestone rock formation was formed by glacial meltwater over 12,000 years ago. It’s an historic beauty spot with incredible panoramic views across the dales from the clifftop which stands at around 260-foot high. While often tranquil, the dales still offer challenges for even the most enthusiastic walkers. You’ll be equipped with the perfect GORE-TEX garments to challenge these very elements, from sturdy hiking boots to windcheaters.
