No place for compromise.

Uncompromising design for unforgiving conditions.

 

On the steepest winter lines, precision and performance are key. For our highest performance jackets, this makes GORE-TEX PRO the obvious choice.

 

As one of Gore’s most trusted research and development partners we have been using GORE-TEX PRO since its inception.

 

 

Built for Alpinism

Blending expert practice with expert design, our updated range of GORE-TEX PRO 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.

 

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’.

Mountain Equipment began designing and manufacturing GORE-TEX jackets in 1977 with the launch of our Cascade Jacket; that same year Apple launched the Series II, its first home computer. Just as technology has moved on, so too have our jackets...
