Our Highsnobiety Fall Style Guide is here to help you bring the heat as the weather cools down. From the latest Fall style trends to curated fashion picks for the changing of the seasons, you will find everything that you will need to season-proof your rotation.
With the Fall season 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 our favorite GORE-TEX jackets to shop right now. Ranging from sports and high-tech brands such as Arc'teryx and Mammut 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 2022 below.
Acronym 3L Gore-Tex® Pro jacket
Ah, yes, ACRONYM — the purveyors of our techwear obsession. Again, this jacket is built to offer superior functionality to those of us looking to take on Fall's finicky weather. The GORE-TEX jacket comes with a storm hood and storm hat option, roomy mezzanine chest pockets, and interior backpack straps. Of course, the GORE-TEX material ensures a breathable and durable construction.
Moncler Grenoble Villair Colour-Block Gore-Tex Jacket
Moncler Grenoble gives wearers a jacket that can handle even the most brutal ski slopes while also looking good enough to wear at a fashion week event. Today's Villair Colour-Block Jacket is no exception to that rule. The outwear piece is made from a 2L GORE-TEX Paclite shell with heat-sealed seams and AquaGuard® water-resistant zippers. If you get too warm in the jacket, you can take off the jacket, use the internal straps to store it, and carry it as a backpack.
Goldwin Fly Air Hooded Gore-Tex Coat
Aside from the impressive tech packed into this jacket, the real star of the show is the monochromatic forest green color palette — a color choice that always looks great in the Fall.
Arc'teryx Atom LT Insulated Hooded Jacket
However, if we are going to talk monochromatic techwear, we have to bring up Arc'teryx. The outerwear brand is an expert at providing outdoor functionality with a flash of color. The jacket is lightweight, synthetically insulated for warmth, and water resistant thanks to its inclusion of Tyono™ 20 Face Fabric.
Rapha Pro Team GORE-TEX Cycling Jacket
We have a jacket for those of you still on the cycling wave, even as the weather cools down. The light Rapha Pro Team jacket is made from a breathable three-layer fabric, waterproof, and created to be fully ergonomic while on a bike. You might not be cycling this Fall, but this is definitely worth adding to your rotation off of its design alone.
Moncler Grenoble Purple Tullins Hooded Jacket
The sentiment is the same here as it was with the Moncler Grenoble above. Except, we get all that Gore-tex functionality in a statement-making Lilac. Want to keep browsing?
