No doubt, GORE-TEX products keep you dry and comfortable. After all, outerwear made of GORE-TEX® fabrics is durably waterproof and windproof as well as breathable. Quite simply: GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™. Wet skin makes us feel cold — as does wind. So how can we effectively keep ourselves from feeling cold outside? Because it is durably waterproof, windproof and breathable, the GORE-TEX membrane is the perfect means to protect us from the harsh elements, keeping us comfortable and securing our microclimate. In the second brand new episode of 'The Promise', Gordon and Ted, the GORE-TEX® product testers explain why it is important to keep the body protected from wind. GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ - more than just a waterproof promise Following the durability of waterproofness in 'The Wizards Of Water' the brand new 'Episode 2 -- Bubble Trouble' (http://www.youtube.com/user/goretexnews#p/c/8A56F93821030A37/0/F9LoEMkl700 ) looks behind the scenes of windproofness and explains, why feeling comfortable is not just about being dry.
In the third episode, 'Masters of Moisture', the product testers Gordon and Ted demonstrate the breathability of the GORE-TEX fabric. They explain the secret behind the fact that GORE-TEX fabrics are not only durably waterproof and windproof, but also extremely breathable. Being protected from the wet and wind outside is essential for us to feel comfortable in harsh weathers. Yet when we are active and start to sweat, the inside of our clothes gets wet. Unless this dampness can dry, that is evaporate, we feel uncomfortable. The waterproof, windproof and breathable GORE-TEX fabric makes all that possible. The products keep us protected from wind, water, rain and snow, while letting our skin breathe and evaporate uncomfortable moisture, even underneath our clothes. With their experiments, which involve a gigantic bright red GORE-TEX glove large enough for Ted to wear as a suit, the testers prove that wet skin can dry inside the GORE-TEX fabric without getting wet from outside -- even swimming in a pond.
No doubt, GORE-TEX products keep you dry and comfortable. After all, outerwear made of GORE-TEX fabrics is durably waterproof and windproof as well as breathable. Quite simply: GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™. Beside protection, comfort is one of the most important things concerning a durably performing jacket. The DWR, durable water repellency or impregnation, applied on the outer textile of a GORE-TEX® garment, is primarily responsible to provide comfort as the water beads up and rolls of rather than soaking in. In this episode of 'The Promise', Gordon and Ted, the GORE-TEX product testers explain why the usage of DWR is so important for your comfort and protection.

This is my deep cold sleeping system. Coldest I have slept in is -44C and it was no problem. Its routine every winter to spend several nights per winter below -30C and its zero anxiety since the system has proven itself. My buddies use a 2-bag system which is also good if you size them right for maintaining loft. Very important is to use an "oversized" bivy so as not to compress loft, and to allow air to move. Not shown is my head gear which is a loose fitting open face fleece balaclava, loose fleece toque (loose to prevent itchy head), and an ear band around my neck that I can raise over my cold nose if need be, and still breathe without a clammy fabric over my face. I sleep in my day base layer and socks, no need to change, and its easy to get dressed in the morning. I wear my fleece day sweater beyond -10C.
How it Works - Gore-Tex jackets When it comes to outdoor clothing Gore-Tex is probably one of the most useful inventions.
