I hear the word GORE-TEX and my fears of being caught out by the weather instantly dry up. Born in the late '60s, this tech has become the ultimate stamp of approval when it comes to waterproof- and weatherproof-ness. In fact, people trust in GORE-TEX clothing so much that they're willing to invest big bucks in it. Arc'teryx jackets upwards of the 500 dollar mark are seen on kids everywhere, not just on the pro hiking club.
Brands are wise to this, and more and more of them are pressing the GORE-TEX button on their hats, jackets, pants, and everything in between. Beams, Carhartt, Stüssy, and more have all dropped collections with the technology as centerpiece recently and in our eyes, there can't be too much of it. As well as offering new, better-looking ways of staying leak-free, the increasing number of GORE-TEX clothing and accessories on the market means that you no longer have to empty your bank account to get some of it.
In light of this, we've rounded up some of the best GORE-TEX pieces on the internet now, with everyone from Stüssy and Palace to Yohji Yamamoto and Acronym getting involved.
Scroll for the best GORE-TEX clothing and accessories around.
Stüssy GORE-TEX Camo Hat
Stüssy recently dropped a three-piece GORE-TEX collection, featuring a jacket, cargo pants, and this fire hat, all in Realtree camo print.
Yohji Yamamoto GORE-TEX Bucket Hat
And just to show it's not only the streetwear labels lacing their accessories with GORE-TEX — a bucket hat from minimal maestro Yamamoto.
Nike ACG Misery Ridge Jacket
Jackets are where this tech really gets to work and this ACG jacket is just showing off, to be honest. A GORE-TEX membrane keeps you protected, while underarm zips let you control your breathability.
Carhartt WIP INFINIUM™ Reflect Active Jacket
Carhartt's classic active jacket got a weather-ready respin recently, the brand making it extra-tough when it comes to bearing the wind and rain by installing 3L Gore-Tex® Infinium.
Acronym J1B GT Jacket
The final boss of GORE-TEX jackets, the Acronym J1B GT has a gabardine shell construction that means it's breathable, windproof, and water-resistant. Not only that, it's got nine ergonomic pockets and that bold as hell hood.
Palace GORE-TEX Cargos
Palace joins the likes of Stüssy and Carhartt in offering GORE-TEX through a streetwear lens. These cargos, from the SS21 collection, zip off to offer you two legwear choices in one.
GR10K Rainpaint Trousers
Big pants and tees are a big look for spring and this GR10K pair defo fits the bill. Love.
Clarks Originals GORE-TEX Canvas Shoe
See what we mean? Even British heritage shoemaker Clark's can't resist the GORE-TEX. The brand's iconic Wallabee just got serious.
Nike ACG Air Nasu
If Wallabees on a mountain walk isn't really your thing, perhaps the Nike ACG Air Nasu, in a colorway that literally can't be ignored, is more your weather-beating bag.
