TECHNOLOGIES

  • The GORE-TEX membrane is the heart of all GORE -TEX products. The GORE-TEX membrane contains 9 billion microscopic pores per square inch. These pores are so small that water droplets cannot get through but water vapor can still escape. Water from the outside cannot penetrate and cold winds cannot pass through, but perspiration can escape easily, keeping you dry and comfortable all day. GORE-TEX fabrics are created by integrating the GORE-TEX membrane between an outer fabric and lining.

  • All Simms outerwear features nylon YKK zippers to minimize corrosion and provide high performing, durable wear.

 

GORE-TEX OUTERWEAR CARE:

Cleaning your GORE-TEX garments regularly will extend the life of the product. It will also keep them breathable as dirt and oil can clog the GORE-TEX membrane over time.

It is critical to wash jackets. Natural oils can damage the GORE-TEX tape and adhesives causing a peeling effect.

Machine wash warm. Do not use fabric softener or bleach.

Remember to zip all pockets and close all Velcro cuffs before washing to prevent any damage caused by the machine.

Tumble dry on warm setting making sure not to use a high heat setting. Drying on warm will actually reactivate the DWR coating.
