Breathable Protection from Harsh and Inclement Weather with GORE-TEX Fabric
When you need protection against heavy rain or snow, GORE-TEX fabric is the answer. This fabric is completely waterproof, which keeps you dry. GORE-TEX fabric is windproof — another key part of staying warm — and it is breathable, helping you stay comfortable by allowing perspiration vapor to escape. These fabrics are also available in a reversible construction with a choice of solid or high-visibility colors on one side and a number of camouflage prints on the other.
Breathable Protection from Chemical and Biological Hazards with GORE® CHEMPAK® Fabric
For CBRN incidents, you need to respond quickly and remain engaged — confident you are protected against potential exposure to harmful warfare agents , toxic or chemicals, or emerging pharmaceuticals such as fentanyl. Durable GORE® CHEMPAK® fabrics provide excellent protection while in suits that enable you to move freely and remain engaged longer than traditional ensembles.
BREATHABLE PROTECTION FROM BLOOD, BODY FLUIDS, AND INFECTIOUS DISEASES WITH GORE® CROSSTECH® FABRIC
You never know when your mission will involve exposure to blood-borne pathogens such as HIV or Hepatitis or to highly infectious diseases like Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). Certified to NFPA 1999, garments made with GORE® CROSSTECH® fabric provide protection against these types of contaminants. In addition, breathable GORE® CROSSTECH® fabric keeps you comfortable by allowing perspiration vapor to escape from your body.
Breathable Protection from Cold and Wind with GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Fabric
When it’s windy and cold, GORE® WINDSTOPPER® is your solution. One of the biggest factors in staying warm on a cold day is wind chill, because wind and cold air combine to increase heat loss from the body. GORE® WINDSTOPPER® fabric slows down heat loss by protecting you completely from the wind, keeping you comfortable longer during exposure to a wide range of weather conditions — wind, cold, and light rain or snow. GORE® WINDSTOPPER® is our most breathable fabric, meaning you don’t have to continually add or remove layers to be comfortable
The Gore Advantage
Wearing garments that withstand the conditions in which you work depends on the quality of the fabrics’ construction and the manufacturing process of the garment. For 35 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 garments do what we say they 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.
