This pioneering fabric is already a proven performer across other outdoor sportswear markets with a reputation for being extremely breathable, super lightweight, soft to the touch and ultra quiet for minimal distraction. It also boasts a high amount of stretch for maximum freedom of movement, while a functional backer textile on the inside provides close-to-the-skin comfort.
On top of the performance benefits, the traditional membrane interior from a Gore-Tex jacket has been relocated to the exterior (without a conventional face fabric) - hence meaning that water absorption is eradicated, the chilling effect is negated and dry-off time is drastically reduced.
Durably waterproof, windproof, and extremely breathable - this new GORE-TEX membrane contains over 1.4 billion microscopic pores per square cm. These pores are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, but 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule.
This makes the GORE-TEX membrane completely waterproof from the outside, while allowing perspiration to escape from the inside. GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ technology is engineered to minimize friction and maximize speed. The revolutionary construction makes the water droplets bead up and roll right off the surface.
All in all, the Galvin Green Shakedry jackets are possibly the most comfortable waterproof styles that the brand have ever produced. Two silhouettes are available - both featured in a seasonal grey/red colour combination.
