    The future requires a bigger commitment than ever. Our heritage is a story of science-based innovation, close collaboration, and great success. As a continuation of this journey, we have created an innovative membrane-based on expanded Polyethylene (ePE). The innovative ePE membrane is light, thin yet strong, enabling durable performance with a low carbon footprint. It is also durably waterproof, totally windproof, and extremely breathable. The new GORE-TEX products reaffirm the GORE-TEX Brand’s ongoing commitment to responsible performance – applying the power of Gore’s unique experience, science and capabilities on a continuous journey to unlock new levels of both performance and sustainability.
