Optimal comfort and versatility in multi-climate environments.
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 durably water-resistant, fast-drying, extremely packable, and lightweight garment systems, GORE® Defense Fabrics improve operational effectiveness by allowing you to focus more on your mission and less on the weather.
Gore Fabric Technologies for the Marine Corps
Enhanced capabilities to improve mission effectiveness.
Your missions require garment systems for different weather conditions and operational scenarios. With individually engineered components, our integrated combat clothing systems provide durable protection against rain, high wind, and snow. Garments made with our technical fabrics provide versatile weather protection and greater mobility and adaptability in the field — regardless of the mission.
Your feet need to be protected against varying weather conditions, temperatures and environments so you remain comfortable and effective. Our footwear fabrics protect against extreme weather conditions and harsh contaminants — allowing moisture vapor to escape, while keeping water and contaminants out. The fabric also maintains outstanding protection overt time and is penetration resistant to DEET, petroleum, oils, and lubricants.
Gloves made with durably waterproof, windproof, and breathable GORE-TEX liners 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 proper gloves that provide long-lasting protection against extreme weather and harsh contaminants.
Highly breathable GORE-TEX fabric used in the Three-Season Sleep System (3SSS) keeps you comfortable by allowing oxygen and carbon dioxide to flow freely through the fully enclosed bivouac sack. At the same time, the fabric allows perspiration to escape from the sack, keeping you and your clothing dry.
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.
The next generation of technical fabrics maximizes comfort with durably performing textiles that are lighter weight, easier to pack, and faster drying. Garments are being designed to strategically place multiple performance materials in 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.
