Gore Debuting New Products and Technologies in Nuremberg at IWA Outdoor Classics 2019


Written by W. L. Gore & Associates

From March 8-11 in Nuremberg, Germany, W. L. Gore & Associates will be debuting new products and technologies at the 2019 IWA Outdoor Classics trade fair. To discover Gore’s innovative textile solutions at IWA Outdoor Classics 2019, stop by Stand 326 in Hall 9.

The world-leading annual trade show provides an opportunity for purveyors of hunting, shooting sports, and outdoor gear and equipment to showcase the latest, best products – for both civilian and official law enforcement and military applications. Trade show visitors and exhibitors come from all over the world to attend IWA Outdoor Classics and view its unparalleled range of products.

At this year’s IWA show, Gore will feature new products and technologies developed specifically for police and the armed forces. These unique, head-to-toe concepts include GORE-TEX SURROUND® footwear, GORE-TEX and GORE WINDSTOPPER® fabrics, and uniforms outfitted with the latest GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology.

GORE-TEX SURROUND® Footwear

Gore’s new SURROUND® technology enables one-of-a-kind GORE-TEX duty footwear that is breathable throughout, including in the sole itself. This innovative technology provides a new level of breathability and comfort for police footwear, without sacrificing water-resistance or compliance with occupational footwear requirement ISO 20347:2012.

Elastic GORE-TEX and GORE WINDSTOPPER® Fabrics

In addition to GORE-TEX SURROUND® footwear, Gore will also be debuting its unique elastic GORE-TEX and GORE WINDSTOPPER® fabrics. Gore’s latest development features both of these fabrics in an effort to provide police officers with the optimum garment fit and enhanced freedom of movement, improving the uniforms’ comfort. A German police special operations unit wear-tested prototypes of a GORE-TEX garment in a wide range of conditions, providing exceptionally positive feedback. One wearer even remarked that the jacket “feels like I’m wearing a second skin.”

GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology

Finally, Gore will debut new jackets and trousers featuring GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology. Designed for combat, this flame-resistant clothing protects members of the armed forces from the risk of flash fire incidents. These new jackets and trousers are already in use by members of various forces and have proven to be especially resistant to flames when compared to similar combat uniforms. Gore has also developed GORE-TEX rain suits in addition to its combat clothing. Rain suits featuring GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology are compact, light, flame-resistant, and keep rain from penetrating wearers’ garments.
