What makes it so wa­ter­proof?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

1Gore-tex Pro beats the cheaper Per­for­mance mem­brane be­cause it re­pels wa­ter on con­tact with the kit (Per­for­mance re­pels wa­ter af­ter it has soaked past the outer).

2This also means Pro kit dries quicker than Per­for­mance equiv­a­lents, be­cause the outer doesn’t sat­u­rate and spend ages drip­ping on your floor af­ter a wet ride.

3The ex­tra ben­e­fit is that you stay warmer in Pro gar­ments be­cause you don’t have to ride around with cold clob­ber draw­ing heat away from your body.
