    What's on your docket for today? Hit the trail for a quick run to clear your head? A bit of window shopping in town? Time for some fresh country air? How about hitting the sauna with your GORE-TEX jacket today to see just how breathable it really is? Whatever your hobby or passion is, whatever fun or spontaneous idea might come to mind, our TESTED FOR LIFE Tryouts is your chance to show us how you put your GORE-TEX gear to the test, pushing our products to their limits!

    Our TESTED FOR LIFE Tryouts bring you and GORE-TEX together

    Put your GORE-TEX gear and its unique technology to the test to show us how GORE-TEX makes a difference in your daily life. Tell us the story of your unique passion by sharing a photo or video.

    Create your own Tryout video or photo

    Grab your phone or GoPro to create your own personal Tryout that shows us how you use your GORE-TEX clothing, shoes, or gloves. Whether you are exercising, shopping, at home, or out with friends: Surprise us! We're looking forward to sharing in your passion. We can't wait to see what you have to show us!

    Feel free to edit your video or photo, but don't feel like you have to. We're not looking for cinematic masterpieces. We're way more interested in seeing you and your clothing, shoes, or gloves in action in ways that are interesting, funny, or inspiring. Sound good? Then upload your entry to by April 18, 2019, and you're in. You can upload up to five videos or photos.

    Win big

    Design your own custom GORE-TEX jacket and meet our team of experts

Yes, you read that correctly! A one-of-a-kind jacket just for you that our team of experts will help bring to life. How awesome is that?!

    Meet one of our GORE-TEX athletes

    During your stay with us you will shake hands with one of our GORE-TEX athletes and talk about your passion.

    Bavarian mountain air and traditional treats

    But that's not all. We have a special treat in store for you to round out the day: We take you to the Bavarian Alps to enjoy some authentic Bavarian food together at a cozy alpine lodge. Leave your wallet at home. The trip is on us! We'll arrange the accommodations for you and we'll provide everything you'll need to create your own GORE-TEX jacket free of charge.

    Join the GORE-TEX TRYOUTS team

    Last, but not least, we'll be welcoming our winner alongside all our semi-finalists as exclusive members of our official GORE-TEX Tryout team: a private and exclusive Facebook group where you'll be the first to hear the all latest insider news from GORE-TEX. Receive test products, take part in exclusive product tests, chat with our experts and designers, and take a peek behind the curtains of the storied GORE-TEX brand. Share your passion with other members, receive invites to exclusive events, and keep us posted on your Tryouts with us.

    Voting phase

    We'll be turning the heat up starting April 22, 2019: The official voting phase will begin. Be sure to cast your vote by May 20, 2019! Get your friends, family, acquaintances, or colleagues to vote for you and your TESTED FOR LIFE Tryout.
