More Softness. Less Weight. Better Breathability.
The 3-layer GORE-TEX® fabric with GORE® C-KNIT™backer technology optimizes comfort while providing durable, waterproof and windproof protection. The reliable and proven bi-component GORE-TEX® membrane system is bonded to an extremely thin, dense yet lightweight circular knit to form a patent-pending laminate. Weighing up to 10 percent less than previous 3-layer GORE-TEX®fabric, this new laminate improves breathability by as much as 15 percent in a less bulky, more robust 3-layerconstruction. The smooth texture of the knit backing is soft to the touch, and makes the garment easier to slide on and off over other layers.
