Gore does more than supply technical fabrics. We are actively involved in every step of the manufacturing process. We hold our partners to the highest standards: every factory is certified, every manufacturer is approved, and every product style is subjected to rigorous tests.
Abrasion can cause holes, tears, and leakage in a fabric. We test our fabrics to ensure they withstand abrasion encountered under the conditions it will be worn.
Waterproof fabrics can be compromised by repeated flexing, so we designed our own testing equipment to walk 500 miles.
