The GORE-TEX® Membrane

// 03

The GORE-TEX® membrane is an extremely thin layer of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE). It has over 9 billion pores per square inch. It’s these pores that give the GORE-TEX® fabric its characteristics.

Waterproof // What does it mean? We believe waterproof products shouldn’t leak - and, what is more, that this quality is retained over the entire lifetime of the product. The durability of waterproofness is really what sets GORE-TEX ® products apart. GORE-TEX ® fabrics withstand water-entry pressures encountered during severe weather and in demanding applications. However, a product’s waterproof protection depends on more than just the fabric. That’s why all new GORE-TEX ® product prototypes from our manufacturing partners are put though a battery of tests in our labs. Only if they meet our strict weatherproof performance standards are they approved for production in a Gore certified factory.

Windproof Waterproof

Waterproof // Why is it important? Wet fabrics conduct heat 3 times faster than dry clothes, robbing your body of warmth. By keeping water out, our durably waterproof clothing system prevents this heat loss. As a result, you stay dry and comfortable, even during extended use, and in harsh conditions.

Breathable

//

Windproof// What does it mean? Although textiles like microfibers, closely woven fabrics, and many fleece materials are often considered windproof, even light winds can penetrate most of these fabrics, making you feel chilled and uncomfortable. In technical terms, a fabric can only be considered truly windproof if its air permeability is 1.0 cfm (volume of air that passes through one cubic foot of fabric in one minute) or less. All GORE-TEX ® products meet or exceed this standard.

//

Windproof// Why is it important?

Breathable // What does it mean?

As cold wind blows through your clothes, it causes convective heat loss, robbing you of the warmth kept in the thin layer of air between you and your clothing. GORE-TEX ® fabrics prevent this windchill from happening by stopping the wind from passing through. The result – you preserve a comfortable microclimate inside your gear.

“Breathability” is one of the outdoor industry’s most misunderstood terms. It is not, as many believe, about a fabric’s ability to let air move through it, rather it refers to how well it lets your sweat escape in the form of moisture vapor. Our standards require that during heavy exertion our fabrics must breathe well enough to allow sweat to evaporate easily.

//

Breathable // Why is it important? When you’re active, your skin removes excess heat via perspiration. To avoid uncomfortable sweat buildup, the GORE-TEX ® membrane allows the evaporating moisture to escape through the fabric. This breathability leads to more comfortable and drier skin, even during high exertion.

guaranteed to keep you dry promise

All GORE-TEX ® products are covered by the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY ® promise. If you are not completely satisfied with the waterproofness, windproofness, or breathability of your GORE-TEX ® product, then we will repair it, replace it, or refund your purchase price. if it has the GORE-TEX ® brand label on it, it has been certified that it’s durably waterproof, windproof and breathable performance meets the needs of its intented use. Fairness is one of the core principals of the GORE company.

The promise is one that allows for common sense solutions with a focus on product performance and building lasting relationships with our customers.

the D3O impact protectors

// 05

D3O ÂŽ core patented technology is based on non-Newtonian principles. In standard conditions, the molecules in a non-Newtonian fluid flow freely allowing the material to remain soft and flexible. On impact, they lock together for milliseconds dissipating the impact energy and reducing the force transmitted, but then instantly return to their flexible state.D3OÂŽ manufactures a smart material with high shock absorbing properties used to make foam and non-foam polymer blends.In standard conditions, the D3OÂŽ molecules within the technology flow freely allowing the material to remain soft and flexible, but on impact, they lock together to absorb impact energy and reduce the force transmitted. The molecules instantly return to their flexible state.

The material is strain rate sensitive which means the stronger the impact, the more the molecules react, and better the protection.

waterproof airvent zones optimal ventilation

Our experienced product development team has been facing a major challenge, creating a Gore-Tex direct laminated jacket and pant for the extreme users. Richa, being an early adopter in the direct laminate fabrics technology, started product development back in 2007. Ten years later, we are proud to present our masterpiece, engineered with Gore-Tex® technology.

// Richa’s Atlantic Gore-Tex jacket and trousers represent high standard materials, durability and an extreme waterproofness. The jacket construction is made from a mixed combination of 2L and 3L laminated outshell Gore-Tex® fabrics. Impact protection fabrics, reinforced on the impact zones with the extremely durable and abrasion resistant Armacor®, maximize your safety. ®

High quality 3M reflective laminated areas all over the product optimize your visibility during the darker moments of the day. When the temperature in your jacket exceeds your level of comfort, you can easily open the complete sealed front airvent panels, our well known Richa A.V.S system. Gradually, the airflow will lower the temperature in the jacket, and export the warm air through the sealed back airvent panel. These airvent panels are developed to create the maximum possible ventilation, without sacrificing our 100% promise to keep you dry. A.V.S panels developed by Richa are always sealed with quality YKK® zippers.
