No doubt, GORE-TEX products keep you dry and comfortable. After all, outerwear made of GORE-TEX® fabrics is durably waterproof and windproof as well as breathable. Quite simply: GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™. Wet skin makes us feel cold — as does wind. So how can we effectively keep ourselves from feeling cold outside? Because it is durably waterproof, windproof and breathable, the GORE-TEX membrane is the perfect means to protect us from the harsh elements, keeping us comfortable and securing our microclimate. In the second brand new episode of 'The Promise', Gordon and Ted, the GORE-TEX® product testers explain why it is important to keep the body protected from wind. GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ - more than just a waterproof promise Following the durability of waterproofness in 'The Wizards Of Water' the brand new 'Episode 2 -- Bubble Trouble' (http://www.youtube.com/user/goretexnews#p/c/8A56F93821030A37/0/F9LoEMkl700 ) looks behind the scenes of windproofness and explains, why feeling comfortable is not just about being dry.
In the third episode, 'Masters of Moisture', the product testers Gordon and Ted demonstrate the breathability of the GORE-TEX fabric. They explain the secret behind the fact that GORE-TEX fabrics are not only durably waterproof and windproof, but also extremely breathable. Being protected from the wet and wind outside is essential for us to feel comfortable in harsh weathers. Yet when we are active and start to sweat, the inside of our clothes gets wet. Unless this dampness can dry, that is evaporate, we feel uncomfortable. The waterproof, windproof and breathable GORE-TEX fabric makes all that possible. The products keep us protected from wind, water, rain and snow, while letting our skin breathe and evaporate uncomfortable moisture, even underneath our clothes. With their experiments, which involve a gigantic bright red GORE-TEX glove large enough for Ted to wear as a suit, the testers prove that wet skin can dry inside the GORE-TEX fabric without getting wet from outside -- even swimming in a pond.
No doubt, GORE-TEX products keep you dry and comfortable. After all, outerwear made of GORE-TEX fabrics is durably waterproof and windproof as well as breathable. Quite simply: GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™. Beside protection, comfort is one of the most important things concerning a durably performing jacket. The DWR, durable water repellency or impregnation, applied on the outer textile of a GORE-TEX® garment, is primarily responsible to provide comfort as the water beads up and rolls of rather than soaking in. In this episode of 'The Promise', Gordon and Ted, the GORE-TEX product testers explain why the usage of DWR is so important for your comfort and protection.

Support TOGR with Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/TOGR What you are about to see is the most expensive tent used by military forces in the world and without a doubt, the most expensive 1 person tent of all time! ... Nemo The ALCS 1P SE (advanced linking combat system) Link : http://shield.nemoequipment.com/product/?p=ALCS+1P+SE+Gore+%28Coyote%29 Became available 2012 and is still in use today. Nemo apparently has been working within the military contractor community for over a decade in regards to the development of tents, sleep systems, weapon bags and so on. This considered to be the most advanced tent ever made for the modern warfighter. Weight : Almost 9lbs for the system Features : Four Season tent made to handle strong winds and snow loading Made for quick erection……. Can be adapted to different environments thanks to the available camo covers Capacity1P Minimum Weight 7 lbs / 3.2 kg On the Fly Weight N/A Trail Weight N/A Floor Dimensions94 x 35 in / 239 x 89 cm Floor Area23 sq ft / 2.1 sq m Vestibule Area10.4 sq ft / 2.2 sq m Interior Height39 in / 99 cm Number of Doors2 Frame DescriptionEaston Reverse Combi Packed Size20 x 8 in / 51 x 20 cm Shell FabricGore-Tex® W/B Shelter Fabric Vestibule Fabric40D PU Nylon Fly FabricN/A Canopy FabricN/A Floor Fabric70D PU Nylon Taffeta Color Coyote Using a recently unveiled, jointly developed, and totally unique GORE-TEX® fabric, NEMO has designed a Berry Compliant, lightweight, linkable, four-season, freestanding, individual shelter system that is waterproof, breathable and flame retardant. Coupled with outstanding signature protection, ALCS™ 1P SE, GORE-TEX® (Advanced Linking Combat Shelter™) gives the Warfighter state of the art performance, concealment, and protection from the elements. Single wall construction combined with minimal componentry and a single connected pole frame allows for significant weight reduction and faster erect and strike. And the innovative linking capability provides a “buddy-team” benefit while still allowing for self-sufficiency in combat environments. An optional ICC™ (Interchangeable Camo Cover™) allows you to adapt your ALCS™ shelter to different operating environments. I have spoken with Nemo about this tent and they weren’t able to discuss it in very much detail. What they did state was this; The ALCS, like many of our military products, was designed with feedback from Special Operations Forces and is still in current use with SOF (Special Operations Forces). The tent was designed to provide full light blocking capabilities as well as the ability to link two shelters together to enable communication. We partnered with Gore to develop fabrics that would meet the requirements of this shelter. The ALCS also has optional covers called the ICC that allow the camo pattern to be changed to meet the current environment. Covers include : MARPAT Desert, MARPAT Woodland and MultiCam and each is roughly $250 each. Other camo patterns for the US ARMY are said to be in development for the new US Army patterns Want to purchase one, good luck! This are very rare. So rare in fact that nemo wouldn’t tell me how many of these have been made. Ever so often you will find these popping up for sale online on auction sites, craigslist and so on. They are only for sale to government agencies and can not be exported to other countries due to the sensitives involving the technology used in the design. With a little searching, I found one listing for the tent which was sold on ebay a few years back. I also found a listing on gear trade which was sold. I have used this tent a number of times and I can tell you that it is bad ass but that doesn’t mean that it is worth the cost. Not even close. Yes, it has some cool features but for the average joe, they mean absolutely nothing….but of course, it wasn’t developed for the average joe…. Something to think about. ...
