GORE-TEX PRO

Built for Alpinism

In our world, durability and breathability are key, making PRO the obvious choice for our highest performance jackets. As one of Gore’s most trusted research and development partners we have been using GORE-TEX PRO since its inception.

 

Blending expert practice with expert design, our updated range has been crafted solely with climbing, mountaineering and ski-mountaineering in mind. We don’t make our GORE-TEX PRO jackets for any other purpose and it is for this reason why we have chosen to use GORE-TEX PRO Most Breathable.

 

Most Breathable

Mountain Equipment was the lead global development partner for the Most Breathable category. The R&D process lasted more than 3 years and included a full winter season of proof-of-concept testing.

 

GORE-TEX PRO Most Breathable uses a multi-layer ePTFE membrane and is available in a series of face textiles ranging from 30 to 150 denier. As a multi-layer membrane without any PU coating, it is the only group of GORE-TEX fabrics which could be described as ‘air permeable’.
