GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Stretch Technology
Stretch technology for improved comfort and performance.
Finding a garment that is comfortable in all climate conditions can be challenging. Protective garments can be too tight in the winter when worn with extra layers, then too loose in summer, never achieving a good fit.
Gore’s unique elastic fabric solves the problem providing improved freedom of movement and access to equipment by adjusting to the number of layers being worn.
High stretch and recovery means that garments will always give optimum fit, flexing up to 100% to accommodate the changing layers of clothing or ballistic protection being worn. A better fit can increase breathability by up to 25%, creating higher levels of comfort and a smarter look, without compromising protection or functionality.
The low force to stretch avoids compressing the layers underneath, maximising insulation and warmth while allowing the garment to still move easily with the wearer.
GORE® WINDSTOPPER® garment is durably windproof and water resistant, protecting the wearer from wind chill and keeping them warm and dry. Clothing that incorporates the GORE® WINDSTOPPER® stretch technology will deliver a significant improvement in fit and unconstrained freedom of movement.
