GORE-TEX Fabric with Stretch Technology Durably waterproof and form fitting offering enhanced freedom of movement

GORE-TEX Fabric with Stretch Technology products allow you to feel more comfortable in motion outdoors, in warmer or cooler weather, without a need to compromise on weather protection, fit or style. The unique, proprietary fabric design is based on "low force-to-stretch" with outstanding recovery offering a reduction in thermal burden, increased breathability and optimal comfort.

When added to a jacket in strategic locations, such as across the back and/or on the elbows, it allows for an athletic, close fit in warm climates where insulation isn't needed. At the same time, the fabric can stretch and expand to accommodate insulation layers in colder conditions.
