Gore-Tex + Rain Droplets


GORE C-Knit Technology is one the new season’s most exciting and important innovations, adding enhanced softness and breathability to GORE-TEX‘s 3-layer products without compromising on their weather protection and durability.

Setting New Standards

With the intention of minimising their environmental impact, GORE-TEX have taken the initiative of constructing materials which are more durable and therefore longer-lasting.


The result is an improved 3-layer laminate which combines a smooth but hardy nylon outer fabric with GORE-TEX’s well-established, PU-coated membrane and their new C-Knit Backer Technology. Clothing crafted with C-Knit Tech will be comfier, lighter-weight and more breathable but still waterproof and robust.


Extensive Testing

GORE-TEX state that comprehensive lab, washing and abrasion testing ensure that their new product is of the highest quality, while 12 months of field-testing by mountain and tour guides, freeriders and snowboarders in a variety of wet and rugged environments guarantees high performance, whatever your sport.

Leading outdoor brands are equipping their new season ranges with GORE C-Knit Technology. The new Arc’teryx Traverse collection is one example: the men’s and women’s Zeta LT and Zeta AR jackets (pictured) combine this new and improved tech with an adjustable storm hood, plenty of pockets and a stylish, close fit.
