The GORE-TEX membrane is the heart of all GORE-TEX products. It contains over
1.4 billion microscopic pores per square cm (9 billion per inch). These pores
are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, but 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule, which makes the GORE-TEX membrane completely waterproof from the outside, while allowing perspira-tion to escape from the inside. In order to meet the specific needs of each end use,
W. L. Gore & Associates has developed different GORE-TEX® membranes and applies them as appropriate.
The AIGLE THERMO-KIT® system enables our warm mid layer garments to be zip-ped in and out of the inner zippers of our protective shell garments at will, to create single integral cold-weather jackets. Thermo-Kit® permits your garments to evolve in response to the seasons.
DFT is a propriety fabric of Aigle that moves moisture and sweat away from the skin to the outer surface of the fabric where it can easily evaporate. The removal and evaporation of sweat and excess moisture helps to keep you dry and comfortable.
Aigle UVC garments work like a filter against the sun, and offer improved UV protection from prolonged exposure to sunlight.
