3-layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell is Gores top spec fabric and is intended for use in the most extreme of environments, from deep powder skiing to freezing cold Scottish couloirs, this is the fabric that will keep you warm and dry. The 3-layer Pro shell is the thickest and heaviest of Gores fabrics but is also the most durable and protective.The 3-layer part means that the membrane is bonded to both the exterior colourful fabric and an interior scrim which is there to protect the membrane and improve its longevity. The breathability is produced by pores in the membrane which are opened by the high pressure inside a sweaty jacket trying to escape to the low pressure of the world outside. This is an ingenious process which means that the fabric can remain waterproof even with these millions of tiny holes; however its performance can be reduced if it is too warm (high pressure) outside the jacket or the fabric is too wet, which blocks the pores. GORE MICRO GRID BACKER TECHNOLOGY. Gores new Micro Backer Technology is used on its 3-layer Gore-Tex fabrics.
This very fine fabric with a slight grid pattern is designed to be lighter than previous scrims while still improving durability and sliding more easily over mid-layers. Ripstop is a fabric weaving technique often used in the shells and linings of technical clothing.
The fabric (most commonly Nylon or polyester) is woven in a crosshatch pattern of stronger fibres at intervals to stop the fabric from tearing, and stop further tearing if it does. Ripstop makes fabric is really strong and was first used to make military equipment such as parachutes, but is now commonly used in lightweight shell jackets and made from finer fibres in order to make garments soft and light while remaining super-tough.
