KLOPT; Gore-Tex is een tegenwoordig ook soortnaam en merknaam;
1. eVent Technology
eVent, as a brand name, was launched in 1999 and quickly grew to become one of the biggest and most well known alternatives for Gore-Tex technologies.
As a fabric technology, it comes in a variety of different layers and designs, the reason for it being its versatile use. These fabrics are not solely used for jackets, but other garments, too, including shoes as well.
It is a fully waterproof and windproof membrane, which is bonded together with other fabrics to create several different fabric technologies, all of which differ in terms of breathability. Because of this, depending on the fabric it is bonded with, your jacket can be either rugged or lightweight.
The rugged ones are a lot more durable to wear and tear, and especially to abrasions from the environment, but they are considerably heavier than a Gore-Tex jacket, so look out for that.

The material of eVent fabrics is ePTFE, a microporous material, which is capable of allowing moisture wicking and prevents water droplets from getting through.
As we will see below, Gore-Tex is made of the same material and shows similarities in terms of being waterproof and very durable.
2. Gore-Tex® Technology
Also made of ePTFE, Gore-Tex is a fully waterproof fabric that presents with three features:
• being a membrane due to its billions of micro pores on the surface, which help aid in breathability and prevent water from getting through;
• being a laminate as it is bound together in a 3-layer construction between two fabrics;
• a technology since it can be used for different purposes and fulfills different requirements.
It was created nearly a decade after the brand was established in 1959, and it is still the leading fabric technology when it comes to outdoor sports wear.
Apart from being waterproof and with a low water adsorption rate, it is also extremely durable, which is always a plus considering that you will be out in nature.
The fabric is also water-repellent, due to the DWR treatment, which coats the fabric and makes it repel water droplets by causing them to roll off rather than pool on top of the fabric.
