gore-tex_logoRecently, I was invited by W.L. Gore and Associates (makers of Gore-Tex, Windstopper and other high-tech fabrics and fibers) to attend a media fact finding event at the their headquarters in Maryland. So I accepted and will be heading to the east coast at the end of October for a short visit of the GORE laboratories, comfort chamber, rain room, a “mythbusters” session and a host of other interesting activities. Though my schedule is pretty full right now, I figured it would be a great opportunity to learn a lot about waterproof/breathable fabrics and give my feedback on some of my own experiences and wishes.

The cool part is that YOU can have a voice as well…through me! W.L. Gore has asked me to ask the visitors for any questions they might have about Gore-Tex or W.L. Gore itself, and any sort of good or bad experiences they may have had. I, in turn, will relay this info to the big wigs at W.L. Gore and get back to you all with hopefully some answers or explanations to your questions. Soooo…anyone out there have a question they would like answered or share any experience they have had relating to Gore-Tex fabrics? Please leave them in the comments section of this post or contact me. Thanks…Steve.
