GORE-TEX Technology Explained

GORE-TEX has produced a range of incredible fabric technologies that Extremities use in their performance gloves. Here’s where you’ll find out exactly what each of the technologies means.

GORE-TEX Active Technology

Whether it’s a fast-paced hike or an intense day on the slopes, when you’re taking part in active sports on cool days you need to breathe—and breathe hard. These are the most breathable GORE-TEX gloves available. Even during heavy exercise, less heat accumulates and less moisture is trapped in the insulation so it remains drier. These gloves also offer a GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise and are totally windproof.
