How Gore-Tex Paclite Plus Works
Two Layer Construction
GORE-TEX PACLITE® PLUS garments use a 2-layer unlined construction. The GORE-TEX® membrane is laminated to an abrasion resistant outer face textile, assuring durable protection. A new abrasion resistant treatment of the inner surface makes a separate lining unnecessary. This makes them thin, light, and highly packable - while being all durably waterproof, windproof, and extremely breathable.
Comfortable, Durable Inner Surface
The new abrasion resistant treatment of the inner surface ensures that garments are longer lasting, offering more reliable protection. This treatment also makes them easier to slip on and off, and more comfortable to wear when you're active.
Additional Technology: GORE-TEX® Stretch Technology
Some GORE-TEX PACLITE® PLUS garments include GORE-TEX® stretch technology. Whether you're racing to the summit on a climb or hiking all day with friends, you want a jacket that moves with you and doesn't restrict your movement.
Thanks to the stretch materials integrated into key areas, GORE-TEX PACLITE® PLUS with stretch technology are designed for ease of movement and an attractive fit.
