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
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 30 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.
Warning: No products, including garments, footwear, and gloves, protect completely, even when new; their protective performance will decline with wear, tear, abrasion, and other damage associated with use.
