GORE-TEX® Products

Experience the Difference
Forget the weather. Remember the moment. GORE-TEX® products provide long-lasting, comfortable weather protection you can trust from your head down to your toes. Guaranteed. Every GORE-TEX® product carries the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise. If you are not completely satisfied with the waterproofness, windproofness, or breathability of your GORE-TEX® product, then Gore will repair it, replace it, or refund your purchase price.



The microporous structure of the GORE-TEX® membrane is what makes GORE-TEX® fabrics completely waterproof. Each microscopic pore is about 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, which means no external moisture - from rain to snow to that puddle you just stepped in - can penetrate the membrane.
Shivering? It could be the windchill effect. This occurs when cold air penetrates your clothing, robbing heat from your body's sensitive microclimate. To keep you comfortable and protected in the windiest conditions, the GORE-TEX® membrane has been engineered to provide an impenetrable wind shield. Your gear breathes, but wind stays out.
The pores in the GORE-TEX® membrane are 700 times bigger than a water vapor molecule, so perspiration can easily evaporate through and you can stay dry from the inside out. Breathability is an important component of comfort when you are active.

Routine care and maintenance of GORE-TEX® products will ensure excellent performance and extend their useful lifespan.

How to Care for Outerwear

  • Machine wash warm (105°F) with a small amount of mild liquid detergent; rinse twice.
  • Line dry or tumble dry on warm, gentle cycle. Once dry, tumble dry for 20 minutes more to reactivate the DWR treatment. If unable to tumble dry, iron on gentle setting (warm, no steam) by placing a cloth between the garment and iron.
  • The heat of the dryer or iron will reactivate and revitalize the DWR treatment on the garment’s surface.
  • Home laundering is recommended; however, product may also be dry cleaned. If dry cleaning, request cleaner use clear distilled hydrocarbon solvent for rinsing.

How to Care for Gloves

  • Handwash warm with mild detergent; rinse thoroughly.
  • Wrap in a dry towel and gently squeeze from fingertips down.
  • Air dry. When partially dry, put them on and make a fist to restore their original shape.

How to Care for Footwear

  • Clean leather footwear with a soft brush and lukewarm water; use a sponge for textile footwear.
  • Use a water-based care product to wash the upper without affecting breathability.
  • Air dry.

Treat Me Right!

While the GORE-TEX® membrane inside the fabric layers is permanently waterproof, the DWR treatment will wear off over time. When this happens, it is necessary to treat the garment with a topical water repellency restorative (DWR treatment) such as Nikwax T.X. Direct which can be purchased online or at Peter Glenn stores.

That’s it. Just follow the manufacturer's recommended care instructions, and your GORE-TEX® products will be ready when you are.
