GORE-TEX® Z-Liner

Traditional hunting garments often have a Z-Liner construction. A GORE-TEX® membrane laminated to a light fabric forms a Z-Liner lining between the surface material and the inner lining, in both jackets and trousers.
 

GORE-TEX® LTD Liner

The GORE-TEX® membrane is laminated to the mesh lining of the garment. The surface material of the jacket or trousers is separate from this lining.
 

GORE-TEX® 2-layer

Two-layer GORE-TEX® material is excellently suited to most outdoor activities. The GORE-TEX® membrane has been laminated to the surface material. A separate lining improves the comfort and versatility of the garment.
 

GORE-TEX® 3-Layer

GORE-TEX® 3-Layer  is the optimal material for extreme conditions. The three-layer structure has an effective GORE-TEX® membrane, joined to both the surface material and the heavy-duty inner lining. Since the various layers cannot rub against each other, the wear-resistance of the garment is excellent. The products are light and comfortable.
 

Windstopper®

Windstopper® products offer maximum breathability and are completely windproof, enabling you to give a top performance even during extreme physical exertion.  

Completely windproof structure
Protects your body’s micro-climate from the chilling effects of the wind.

Maximum breathability
Dispels the moisture produced by the body, thus preventing overheating and keeping moisture from collecting inside the garment.
 

GORE® OPTIFADE® Concealment

GORE® OPTIFADE® Concealment is the first scientifically developed concealment method based on the vision of animals. Traditional approaches to deceiving game animals include the use of scents and sounds, and imitation of things the prey is familiar with. GORE® OPTIFADE® Concealment is the first concealment method based on animal vision instead of human vision.
A human dressed in garments with photographic leaf and twig patterns is easy for an animal to detect as an even grey mass. A human wearing GORE® OPTIFADE® Concealment garments is difficult for animals to detect, and the prey won’t recognise the hunter as a threat. The manufacturer calls this ‘the Science of Nothing’.

Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™

Elastic in four directions, Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™ material is a closely fitting resilient knitted fabric that keeps your skin dry and warm. The outer shell of the material (polyester) is windproof, breathable, and resistant to rubbing. The inner surface (brushed polyester) transfers the moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable. The material can be used for both under-layer and intermediate-layer garments.


 

Ventile®

Ventile® is a densely woven, very breathable and durable fabric from 100% cotton. Ventile® is not coated or laminated. Instead, the cotton fibres swell when wet, making the fabric tight and water-repellent. Thus the fabric provides excellent protection against wind, rain, snow, and cold.

Wool

Wool is a breathable material with excellent thermal insulation properties. It absorbs and transfers moisture effectively, without ever feeling wet. It is the only fibre that keeps you warm even when it is wet. Wool has natural water- and dirt-repelling properties, and it is easy to keep clean by airing.

 

Organic cotton

Cotton is a soft, breathable material that absorbs moisture extremely well. Organic cotton is produced without harmful fertilisers, with minimal effect on the environment.
