Montane and W. L. Gore & Associates, the name behind Gore-Tex waterproof technology, have teamed up to  launch a new collection of shell and softshell jackets and pants and accessories


Lightweight performance clothing and equipment brand Montane has become the first technical outdoor manufacturer to receive a Gore license in over a decade, marking its Autumn / Winter 2016 season as the debut for its new Gore-Tex collection.

“From the outset, our philosophy has always been about enabling aspiring athletes to go further, faster by offering a combination of premium, specifically selected fabric technologies, cutting edge construction techniques and ensuring that our clothing and accessories are designed for distinct outdoor mountain pursuits,” said Montane’s brand director Jonathan Petty. “Earning this Gore license is a great testament to our development and passion for applying and adhering to these principles.”
