Fabrics are a major part of our technical DNA. From seasonal ideas to evergreen basics, we are always exploring diverse options to help you reach your summit.
The ‘Guaranteed to Keep You Dry™’ promise started here. GORE-TEX is the flagship innovation of the number one brand for trusted comfort and protection from the elements. It’s designed to make more of every day spent outdoors.
The GORE-TEX membrane is created as a series of pores. Each pore is 20,000 times smaller than a water drop, yet large enough for vapor to pass through. This creates the ultimate membrane for keeping the inside of your garment dry while still allowing moisture and perspiration to pass through, effectively regulating your body temperature while keeping you comfortable inside your jacket or pants. GORE-TEX guarantees you will stay dry and warm in any condition, for the life of your garment. All GORE-TEX fabrics are bluesign® approved, meeting the highest environmental standards.
GORE-TEX PRO garments are for serious outdoor visionaries who demand the most active breathable, rugged, durable protection available. The absolute pinnacle in outerwear for extreme situations.
GORE-TEX PRO products ensure the most active breathable, durable, and long-lasting protection —even in the most extreme conditions. The 3-layer design utilizes revolutionary membranes that are specially processed and provide high strength. The membrane is durably bonded to both the rugged outer material and a specially developed robust inner lining. GORE-TEX PRO products also come with recycled and solution dyed textiles that reduce water usage and CO2 emissions, creating a lower environmental footprint. They are designed to be extremely breathable and come with the ultimate GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise for waterproof protection in a totally windproof product.
The ultimate back-up for unexpected adventures. GORE-TEX PACLITE® is packable comfort and protection for every day.
Designed to provide comfort and reliable protection, all GORE-TEX PACLITE® garments come with the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise and are totally windproof and extremely breathable. PACLITE® features 2.5-layer laminate construction. It is the strikingly minimalist construction of GORE-TEX PACLITE® garments that allows them to be so lightweight and packable. The GORE-TEX membrane is bonded directly to an outer shell material, then covered by a durable protective layer made of an oleophobic (anti-oil) substance and carbon. This protective layer makes a separate lining unnecessary resulting in an extremely lightweight, packable garment that you can take anywhere.
High-performance water-resistant technology that upgrades your comfort and protection. Provides lightweight wind blocking for daily activities.
GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ is a lightweight fabric that blocks all wind. From intense hikes to daily commutes, the high-performance technologies boost performance when waterproof protection isn’t a priority. With the GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ products range, there are new ways to upgrade your comfort & protection when weather conditions are drier.

Every inch of infiDRY® fabric meets strict 686 specifications and endures countless hours of team testing to ensure the utmost waterproofing, breathability and durability.

Our most versatile fabric for day-to-day wear. Made to move with a stretch weave while keeping a natural hand feel.
Everywhere. It’s in the name. This was the fabric chosen above all others to center the 686 Everywhere apparel around. The perfect amount of stretch. Just the right durability in the nylon to make it move with you and drape just right. Breathable but with a capable water and stain resistant finish and with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 40+. If you wanted to create a piece of apparel that had to perform at a high level across the board, Everywhere fabric is up for the job.
33% stronger compared to standard Everywhere fabric – durable and designed for movement.
686's most durable fabrication to date and fused with gloriously stretchy and breathable DNA, Unwork Fabric embodies the blurred lines between work and play. Built for weekday and weekend warriors alike, Unwork is durable enough for the job site and wearable enough for the bike ride home.
We constructed the Featherlight fabric to feel lightweight and allow extra air movement for comfort on warm days.
Featherlight fabric is the warm weather cousin to Everywhere fabric that is 33% lighter but retains many of the same properties. It’s the most breathable fabric we offer and still offers a water and stain resistant DWR finish as well as UPF 40+ for sun safety. When the temperatures rise, reach for our Featherlight fabric. It offers a similar style with warm weather performance.
