There is a brand new GORE-TEX® waterproof fabric hitting the shops this autumn that you can ‘Try Before you Buy’ here at the Climbers Shop.

GORE-TEX(R) Active_Shell_construction_image2

GORE-TEX® Active Shell is more breathable than any other waterproof and windproof product currently on the market. And, to prove just how good it is, Gore is inviting you to check it out for yourself on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September 2011!

All you need to do to ‘Try Before You Buy’ is come to the GORE-TEX® Active Shell marquee outside the shop, choose a GORE-TEX® Active Shell jacket, leave a deposit then you can try the jacket for the whole day. If you want to make sure that they don’t run out of jackets, you can even reserve one by email in advance.

GORE-TEX® Active Shell is designed for fast moving, high aerobic activities such as trail running, mountain biking and fast ascent climbing. The fit of the jackets is much more streamlined than walking jackets and features are at a minimum to allow maximum breathability and low weights.

As well as being extremely breathable, garments using GORE-TEX® Active Shell come with Gore’s Guaranteed to keep you dry promise™. That means you have a guarantee that the garment will continue to deliver the same high standards for its entire lifetime. To find out more about the membrane click here
