With spring showers looming on the horizon, waterproofing your wardrobe should be a shopping priority right now. And though there are a number of materials that can boast keeping wet weather and windchill at bay, few do it quite as well as GORE-TEX.

Introduced in the late ’60s by William (Bob) L. Gore, anything packing GORE-TEX is about as waterproof as garments get. Most impressive about the Teflon material, though, is its ability to let vapor and sweat escape while keeping you and your fit underneath out of harm's way, allowing for optimum temperature control.

It's a technology that was first adopted by mountaineering brands, applied to outdoor gear such as hiking jackets and winter boots. But while GORE-TEX has traditionally been associated with high-performance gear, the material has more popped up in the collections of brands far and wide, from Stüssy to Nike.

In appreciation of the infallible waterproof material and the man who invented it, we've rounded up a few of the top Fall GORE-TEX jackets to shop right now. Ranging from sports and high-tech brands such as C.P. Company and Veilance to the likes of Moncler and Goldwin, those looking to buy into GORE-TEX aren't short of options.

Scroll down to view some of the best GORE-TEX jackets in Fall 2023 below.
