Gore takes centre stage
Did you know that, as well as making waterproof membranes used in other brand’s outdoor gear, Gore makes its own range of clothes? Well it does – and has just launched a new hiking selection, including the below:
GORE H5 WINDSTOPPER HYBRID PANTS £250
Engineered for fast hiking, these hybrid trousers are windproof, breathable and water-resistant. The addition of waterproof material on the thighs adds the appearance of a pair of overshorts, but keeps water from running off the jacket and onto the thighs, while maintaining maximum breathability everywhere else.
GORE H5 WINDSTOPPER INSULATED HOODED JACKET £320
The Windstopper membrane in this jacket keeps the outer windproof and water-repellent, yet highly breathable. The inner insulation is provided by lightweight and low-bulk Polartec Alpha protection, which maximises both temperature regulation and breathability during strenuous activity.
GORE H5 GORE-TEX ACTIVE HOODED JACKET £320
Gore-Tex Active offers maximum breathability from a waterproof hard shell, making this jacket the perfect choice for fastmoving activities, or warm but wet weather. It’s also extremely light and packable, ensuring that, if the weather stays friendly, the jacket takes up little space and is barely noticeable in your pack. www.gorewear.com
