When it comes to outerwear, you need lightweight, comfortable protection in all kinds of weather. We ride along with patrol officers on all kinds of missions to understand their needs: you usually need a lightweight jacket that protects you outside but keeps you comfortable inside, but sometimes you need a full raincoat or rain pants, and sometimes you need protection from blood and body fluids. Whatever you need, our fabrics are a part of the leading solutions.

  • Select Your Fabric

    You need protection against wind, cold, water, blood, body fluids, and chemicals. However, you also need to be comfortable and remain focused. Our fabrics give you comfortable protection in any conditions.

  • Garment Types

    Outerwear commonly refers to only duty jackets, but you may need a lot more than that: raincoats, sweaters, even rain pants. Our fabrics are used in a variety of garments to provide you with durable waterproof, breathable comfort in all conditions.

You need comfortable footwear because you can’t afford to be slowed down by sore feet or by sores on your feet. These problems most commonly occur when sweat builds up between your foot, sock, and boot, which is caused by footwear that doesn’t breathe. GORE-TEX® and GORE® CROSSTECH® footwear fabrics are breathable and therefore allow foot perspiration to escape so that your feet can stay comfortable. That’s on top of the waterproof protection of GORE-TEX® fabric and the chemical, blood, and body fluid penetration protection of GORE® CROSSTECH® fabric.

Body Armor

By selecting body armor made with GORE-TEX® covers, you’ll stay comfortable while the ballistic panels are protected from water, body oils, and other chemicals. The covers are lightweight, reducing the burden of the overall product. The easy-to-clean material reduces unpleasant odors that could otherwise be absorbed into the protective material.
