55 years ago, Gore-Tex invented the first waterproof, windproof, breathable fabric, setting the bar for protection and comfort. Every day since, our scientists in the Gore-Tex innovation labs continue to create better products that you pursue for your outdoor dreams. That’s why brands like Richa integrate our revolutionary membrane technology into their clothing. Like with all Gore-Tex products, it comes with a satisfaction guarantee.
The original Gore-Tex products range with the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise is made to do exactly that—providing best-in-class waterproof protection you can rely on. Whether you’re dashing through downtown showers or facing down mountain storms, you get innovative waterproofness, windproofness, and excellent breathability.
|When your clothes get wet your body loses heat and feels uncomfortable. Our products provide innovative, durable waterproof protection you can always rely on.||Cold wind removes the warm air between your skin and clothing. All our products with the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise block the wind to keep you protected.||Whatever the temperature outside, your body sweats when you’re on the move. Our products allow water vapour to escape. So that whatever drives you on, you can go further.|
|HOW IT WORKS||THE GORE-TEX GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ PROMISE|
|Our products are vigorously tested for reliable protection even in demanding conditions. The GORE-TEX membrane at the heart of our technologies contains pores smaller than a water droplet, but larger than a water vapour molecule. So rain can’t get in, but sweat can get out. Whatever happens, you can trust that your original GORE-TEX products will keep you dry.||Our unique customer promise means that you can rely on your original GORE-TEX products for their entire useful life. If you’re not completely satisfied with the waterproofness, windproofness, or breathability of your product, we’ll repair it, replace it, or refund the purchase price.|
CARING FOR YOUR GORE-TEX PRODUCTS
Not only are Gore-Tex products built to last, they are easy to care for. Routine care will ensure excellent performance and extend their useful life.
Before laundering your garment, zip the front closure, pockets and pit zips completely, and fasten all flaps and straps. Be sure to follow the garment manufacturer’s instructions to ensure high performance.
Machine wash on a warm permanent press cycle (105º F/40º C) using a small amount of liquid detergent. Rinse twice, minimize spinning to reduce creasing. Do not use powder detergents or any products that contain fabric softeners, conditioners, stain removers or bleach as they will affect garment performance. Do not wash with heavily soiled clothing.
Do not use chlorine bleach.
Line dry your garment, or tumble dry it on a warm, gentle cycle. Once it is dry, tumble dry your garment for 20 minutes to reactivate the durable water-repellent (DWR) treatment on the outer fabric.
If unable to tumble dry, iron the dry garment on gentle setting (warm, no steam) by placing a towel or cloth between the garment and the iron. This will help reactivate the DWR treatment on your garment’s outer fabric.
Gore-Tex recommends home laundering. If professional dry cleaning is necessary, request that the cleaner use clear distilled hydrocarbon solvent for rinsing and then spray DWR on the garment’s outer fabric before drying. Follow garment manufacturer’s instructions.
WATER REPELLENT TREATMENT
When the factory applied treatment can no longer be reactivated, apply a new water-repellent treatment to the garment’s outer fabric.
Wash Gore-Tex Scent Control Outerwear with unscented detergent after 40 hours of field use. Waders that incorporate neoprene boots should only be washed by hand in cold water and drip-dried. No fabric softener.
