A walker’s clothing must be adapted to the weather conditions and the intensity of the effort. Nothing is more annoying than wet clothing that also makes you sweaty. Are you after breathable, waterproof fabric? Then GORE–TEX®- can offer the solution.
GORE–TEX®-is breathable and waterproof, keeping rain water out without making everything on the inside feel damp and clammy. The pores are 700 times larger than a water vapour molecule, allowing perspiration moisture
to escape easily. That is why the GORE–TEX®-membrane is so breathable. The microscopic pores in the membrane are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, so rainwater can’t get through. But it has its limits. If the wearer sweats a lot due to physical exertion, not all of the moisture can escape and the person will get wet. This moisture is retained inside the item of clothing and evaporation will not therefore cool you down.
