You thought GORE-TEX PACLITE® technology was cool—PACLITE® STRETCH takes all the great capabilities we love and stretches them to your limit. Using a laminate construction where a special GORE-TEX membrane is bonded to the outer shell material and protected by a durable thin film on the inside instead of a backer, this two-layer design makes for an extremely lightweight and packable piece that you can move in freely.
Not only can you can take these garments anywhere (no matter how tight space), when bad weather rolls in and sunshine turns to rain, you can always be ready and confident that your rain shell jacket or pants is durably waterproof, windproof, extremely breathable—and now, stretchable.
how it works
Some GORE-TEX PACLITE® garments include GORE-TEX stretch technology. Whether you're rushing through streets on the way to work, or hiking your favorite trail on the weekend, you want a jacket that moves with you and doesn't restrict your movement.
Thanks to the stretch materials integrated into key areas, GORE-TEX PACLITE® garments with stretch technology are designed for ease of movement and an attractive fit.
