GORE-TEX® Ocean Pro Shell is universally recognized as the most durably waterproof
and breathable fabric available in the world today, ideal for long
ocean or offshore cruising and racing. HPX incorporates W.L. Gore & Associates' most efficient and durable GORE-TEX® membrane, built to withstand the most extreme environments that can be encountered.
The fabric allows moisture
vapor from inside the suit to “breathe” out, whilst stopping any sea
or rainwater getting in. This is achieved by having microscopic holes
in the membrane, large enough to let water vapor molecules out, but much too
small to let water droplets in.
Stretch HPX uses a stretch GORE-TEX®
Technology membrane in a three layer laminated fabric. This
revolutionary fabric has an elasticity of 30%. The result is the least
restrictive, most breathable fabric for foul weather gear available.
To achieve all this, HPX fabric consists of several layers:
- Wind & water completely blocked
- Body moisture vapour passes through ePTFE micopores
- Outer shell fabric
- GORE-TEX® ePTFE membrane
- Inner liner
- Oleophobic (oil repelling) coating
