Whether you’re heading out into a storm or you just like to be prepared, make sure you have a GORE-TEX jacket with you. These waterproof jackets can be the difference between getting soaked to your skin and staying dry on your walk, making them essential for any hiking enthusiast. Here at Sprayway, we engineer a selection of women’s GORE-TEX jackets to help you tackle the great outdoors.
GORE-TEX is an advanced material that all hikers should become acquainted with. Before the world of GORE-TEX, waterproof clothing was primarily designed using nylon. Nylon has a lot of desirable properties, including being lightweight and impressively waterproof. Unfortunately, it doesn’t let water vapour pass through, which means nylon clothing traps sweat inside and becomes damp after prolonged wear. That’s where GORE-TEX comes in.
GORE-TEX is highly breathable, meaning it helps keep hikers dry inside and out of the clothing. This breathability is possible due to the millions of tiny holes in the material. While being too small to allow water droplets to pass through, these holes allow sweat vapours escape, keeping hikers and walkers feeling comfortably active.
We have a selection of GORE-TEX jackets to suit a range of different adventures. When you’re hitting the slopes or doing some mountaineering, choose the Eris jacket. With a slim mountain fit, this lightweight jacket keeps you protected without any unnecessary weight. If you’re headed somewhere arctic, wrap yourself up in the Leonora. This cosy GORE-TEX style has a thick knitted fleece lining, perfect for bracing winds and snowy days.
There are a variety of Sprayway stockists up and down the country. Find your nearest store and start preparing for your next adventure.
