GORE-TEX

Technology Detail Hero Image

Guaranteed to keep you dry™

 

GORE-TEX Waterproof Technology has been helping people explore the outdoors for over thirty years by keeping them protected, dry and comfortable.

Wherever your adventure takes you; an expedition to the polar region, or a walk in the park with your family, there’s a GORE-TEX fabric to meet your needs.

Used in many of Berghaus’ expertly designed waterproof jackets, clothing and rucksacks, we were the first European outdoor company to introduce protective GORE-TEX fabrics to its collection of waterproof jackets way back in 1977. You can read more about the story and the history of waterproof if you are interested in learning about Berghaus' expertise in waterproof technology.

Today GORE-TEX is widely recognised across the world as the ultimate name in waterproof technology and it’s an association that Berghaus is proud to continue for years to come.

Our waterproof garments are made using GORE-TEX® Pro and GORE-TEX® technologies which are tailored to each type of outdoor enthusiast, providing high quality, breathable performance wherever you go. The addition of Paclite Technology is designed to meet Gore’s Extreme Wet Weather Construction requirements. Garments with this rating are engineered to pass Gore’s most aggressive rain endurance tests which simulate extended vertical and horizontal wind-driven rain conditions; the result is a robust protective waterproof technology that’s built to last.

For thorough waterproof protection, a GORE-TEX waterproof jacket or any of Berghaus’ protective GORE-TEX clothing will keep you warm and dry in a battle against the elements when adventure calls. You can find the GORE-TEX jacket that’s compatible with you using our Waterproof Jacket Selector and how to keep it in top condition with our guide on Washing Waterproof Jackets.

Engineered for professional mountaineers and serious outdoor enthusiasts GORE-TEX® Pro delivers better and more reliable comfort in even the harshest conditions.

With a revolutionary patent-pending waterproof membrane technology, the new generation of GORE-TEX® Pro fabric offers improved ruggedness, protection and up to 28% more breathability than its predecessor whilst sacrificing none of the windproof or waterproof properties that has made GORE-TEX® a household name.



GORE-TEX® WITH PACLITE® TECHNOLOGY

If you need to travel light and have limited space then GORE-TEX Paclite® clothing is an essential piece of kit. It has all the features of other protective waterproof GORE-TEX® fabrics but does not have a separate lining, meaning it can be packed down to fit whatever space you have.
