update me on the new gore fabrics?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
until last year there was quite a few gore fabrics (paclite, active, pro, performance, softshell)

this year they came up with the new pro shell, and now they call everything else goretex, I'm assuming the active fabric is still the same and all the others are gone.

where does the new goretex (non pro) fabric sit compared to the older performance, pro, softshell fabrics?

it feels something in between the old softshell and pro shell and not as stiff as the old performance shell.

so what's up with the new gore and all the different construction types?

pointers to good reviews are welcome!

FYI.

 

Goretex comes from the wire and cable RF industry.

 

Here is the source.

Worth while read and how things are developed.
