Focus more on the mission and less on the environment.
Designed in garments, footwear, and gloves, our durably waterproof, windproof and breathable fabrics provide the level of protection you need for optimal comfort in multi-climate environments.
With enhanced capabilities to engineer fast-drying, extremely packable, and lightweight garment systems, GORE® Defense Fabrics improve operational effectiveness by allowing soldiers to focus more on their mission and less on the weather.
New technology advancements such as heat and flame protection, signature management and chemical and biological (CB) protection are an integral part of systems, designed to meet U.S. military requirements.
Gore Fabric Technologies for the Army
Durably waterproof, windproof, and breathable fabrics for the level of protection you need.
Defense operations can rapidly change for today's soldier - moving from hot to cold climate environments. Our technically advanced fabrics and garment systems have been engineered to protect against rain, high wind, and extreme cold conditions, further enhancing operational effectiveness.
GORE® Defense Fabrics maintain outstanding protection over time, and part of leading solutions designed to meet U.S. Army requirements.
Your feet need to be protected against varying weather conditions, temperatures and environments, allowing you to remain comfortable and engaged longer. Our footwear fabrics protect your feet against extreme weather conditions and harsh contaminants, allowing your feet to breathe — keeping your feet dry and comfortable.
The unique construction of GORE-TEX footwear fabric allows moisture vapor to escape while repelling wind, rain and snow. The fabric also maintains outstanding protection overtime, even after exposure to DEET, petroleum, oils, and lubricants.
Gloves made with durably waterproof, windproof and breathable GORE-TEX inserts and laminates keep hands dry and comfortable in rain, high wind and cold environments without sacrificing dexterity, tactility and operability. Your ensemble is not complete unless you have gloves that provide long-lasting protection against extreme weather and contaminants such as JP-8, DEET, petroleum, oils and lubricants.
The next generation of technical fabrics maximizes comfort with durably performing textiles that are lighter weight, easier to pack, and faster drying. Garments will be designed by strategically placing multiple performance materials within different areas to optimize breathability, warmth and heat regulation for optimal comfort.
In addition, specialized fabrics are being engineered to provide enhanced protection against heat and flame, and chemical/biological protection from hazardous contaminants potentially encountered in the field.
GORE-TEX PYRAD® Fabric engineered for single-wall shelter systems is lightweight and packable, providing optimal comfort with an air-permeable, waterproof construction. The durably waterproof, windproof and breathable GORE-TEX fabric delivers unsurpassed protection against rain, snow and wind with the added benefit of heat and flame protection.
