Your missions put you in all kinds of environments, so you demand flexible, durable garments that keep you dry and comfortable while protecting you from weather, blood, body fluids, and hazardous chemicals. Garments made with our fabrics can be up to 300% more breathable and three times more durable than conventional barrier fabrics. They are also lighter weight, which means you can move around more easily — all without compromising protection. Whatever protection you need, our fabrics are a part of the leading solutions.

Whether dealing with the critical situations requiring your specialized skills as a SWAT team member or responding to an emergency call on the street, 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 feet, socks, and boots because your footwear doesn’t breathe. GORE-TEX® and GORE® CROSSTECH® footwear fabrics are breathable and therefore allow foot perspiration to escape — keeping your feet cooler and comfortable. That’s on top of the excellent waterproof protection of GORE-TEX® fabric and liquid penetration protection of GORE® CROSSTECH® fabric.

Armor

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

The Gore Advantage

Logo

Having body armor that withstands the conditions in which you work depends on the quality of the fabrics’ construction and the manufacturing process of the garment. For 35 years, W. L. Gore & Associates has been a pioneer in developing high-performance barrier fabrics for first responder and military applications. At Gore, we work closely with our licensed manufacturers from initial product design through rigorous laboratory and field testing and final product performance — all to ensure that you can be confident that your armor does what we say it will do.
